What's Bothering Me: TNA Morale, Rhodes' Injury, Ryback's New Streak

by Chris Cash
December 03, 2012


#3. "TNA Morale Is High"

I hate stories that claim the entire locker room morale of a company is either high or low and then goes on to state the reason(s) why. Why does it bother me so much? Well, there's the obvious point of it being a bogus story to begin with, because to come to that conclusion, you would need that opinion being given to you from at least the majority of the roster. I doubt that was the case. It was likely hearsay information provided by a couple of people, possibly less.

Secondly, looking at the report in context, why would TNA morale be so high right now? Because they're booking six months in advance? Because storylines have been so consistent? Or is it even related to the product? Maybe talent is happy right now because it's the holiday season and Christmas tends to put more smiles on more faces every year.

I'm not trying to bash TNA and the high collective spirits they reportedly have backstage, but it amounts to nothing in the end if Dixie can't pull from it and grow the company further. Their rating bounced back after a six-year low and that's great. Airing on Thanksgiving will always suck. However, it's what they consistently bounce back to that concerns me.

For years now, TNA has not been able to escape the 1.0 average. One could speak of it positively in that it hasn't dropped significantly in that same time period, but I can't look at it that way. To me, it's a major disappointment. There are only two major wrestling companies on TV today and one of those is TNA. The fact that they haven't been able to tap into WWE's fanbase more than they have, in the amount of time they've had to do it, should cause for constant frustration in everyone involved, from top to bottom.

In a way, TNA is absolutely competing with WWE. And dare I say they even have the resources and tools necessary to compete on a much higher level, similar to the way WCW did in the 90's. They even have the one man given credit for taking WCW and growing it to such a point (Bischoff, not Hogan). Furthermore, they don't have any restrictions such as a PG rating to deal with either. Yet, ratings don't budge.

Maybe morale is high, but I can't see how it's related to the product and overall success of the company. Could be because the guys know Velvet Sky and her ass are returning sometime next year. That's something to be happy about.

Funny though - if it weren't for the ongoing lawsuit between WWE and TNA, Velvet would likely be on her way to WWE by now. At least, that would be her first choice if given the chance.

Exclusive: Former IC Champion Gets Drunk, Claims Jerry Lawler's Heart Attack Was A Work

by Chris Cash
December 03, 2012

Former WWE(F) Intercontinental Champion, Honky Tonk Man (Roy Farris), acted out in a drunken stupor during the Blizzard Brawl after-party on Saturday night/early Sunday morning, WrestleZone was told, and goaded Brian Christopher Lawler into a confrontation as a result. One source told me that the situation got so heated and personal, it was a shock things didn't turn physical.

Honky Tonk Man is the first cousin of Jerry "The King" Lawer, as their moms were sisters, and of course, Brian is Jerry's son.

I was told that Honky started bad-mouthing Jerry excessively to Brian during the after-party, claiming that Lawler's recent heart attack was either a work, or at the very least, sensationalized and exploited by WWE for publicity and ratings purposes.

I contacted Brian Lawler and he confirmed the story. He said Honky was claiming it must have been a work because no doctor would allow Jerry to eat steak and eggs just a few days after a heart attack.

"I flew to Montreal and was there with my father just nine hours after the heart attack, so I know it was very real and wasn't a work," Brian told WrestleZone.

Another source told me that Honky was screaming at the top of his lungs during the confrontation and kept saying to Brian, "Your father is a piece of sh*t", over and over. This prompted Brian to start throwing popcorn in Honky's face before a couple of spectators finally convinced Brian to leave the room.

One source told me, "The old Brian Lawler would have tried to kill Honky for saying those things about his father, but Lawler just walked away this time."

To make an embarrassing situation even more embarrassing, several eye witnesses later saw Honky Tonk Man peeing on the floor of the same meeting area where the whole incident took place.

He was then caught passed out at a table in the breakfast area of the hotel before finally catching a shuttle to the airport.

It was a very bizarre situation and the several people I've talked to today all agreed that Honky Tonk Man was out of line and being very disrespectful toward Jerry and Brian.

I have reached out to Honky Tonk Man for a response, but have not received one at the time of this writing.

Possible WWE Main Event Scheduling Conflict On 12/12


by Bill Pritchard
December 03, 2012


ProWrestling.net is reporting the December 12th episode of WWE Main Event may be moved from its usual 8pm EST slot for the "12.12.12." benefit concert. The concert, taking place at Madison Square Garden in New York City, is scheduled for the same day and time and it will benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The report also mentions that an episode of Smackdown was to be pre-empted last month for another Hurricane Sandy benefit concert (Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together), but the rescheduling never happened. Smackdown aired at it's normal time and the concert was delayed on SyFy, but the concert aired uninterrupted at its regular scheduled time on the other NBC Universal networks.

Former WWE Writer Talks About Unwritten Airplane Rules, Vince's Sense Of Humor


by Bill Pritchard
December 03, 2012


PWTorch.com posted the following information about former WWE writer, John Carle, appearing on their PWTorch Livecast interview segment. Carle talked about the unwritten rules for flying with Vince McMahon, his sense of humor, and more:

    On a specific 'prank' Vince pulled after a writer fell asleep:
    "Funniest thing I ever saw on the plane - there is always the rule that if Vince is not sleeping on the plane, then you do not sleep on the plane. Again, unsaid, unwritten rule and Vince will never ever tell you that, but if you fall asleep on the plane, someone is going to mess with you,"

    "One of the directors - I will withhold his name - fell asleep on the plane and Vince started taking the cashews and throwing them at him. Like, one or two at a time, and there was no reaction. He was out cold and not waking up from this.

    "Then, Vince just said screw it and took the entire tin of cashews, threw it at this director, and they go all over the plane. All of us don't know if this is awkward or if we should just break out laughing at this point. To this director's credit, because he had been in the company long enough to know when take his lumps and when to pick his fights, he opened his eyes, looked around, saw the nuts all over the place, and said, 'Um, Vince, I think you dropped your nuts.' And then it was a big laugh for everyone. He knew how to handle the situation and that's why this guy is one of the survivors in the company because he played that part perfect. Vince got his laugh and got to throw stuff at him, then it wasn't a fight that came out of it, just people letting off steam."

WWE RAW Results (12/3) - Vince McMahon Returns, New Match & Stipulation At TLC, CM Punk Takes Lie Detector Test

=====================


WWE RAW Results


By Bill Pritchard for Wrestlezone.com
December 3rd 2012

Kane and Daniel Bryan make their entrance and Kane spots The Shield in the audience, and he says they should come to the ring. Kane says they fight for injustice, but they sneak attacked him and he'll give them something to fight about.

Team Hell No vs Prime Time Players

Titus punches Kane a few times but Kane rebounds with a few right hands, then he knocks Young off the apron before clotheslining Titus out of the ring. Kane and Bryan stare at The Shield, then Bryan tags in and knocks Young down with a shoulder block before kicking him in the corner. Kane gets back in and hits a dropkick for a near fall, then he lifts Young up and slams him in the corner before kicking him in the ribs. He hits a few quick shoulder blocks before tagging Bryan in, and they point out that Roman Reigns has made his way into the crowd as Bryan kicks Young.

Kane bodyslams Young but Young comes back with some right hands in the corner, then he tags Titus and holds Kane while Titus stomps him. Young tags back in but Kane whips him outside, then they watch Dean Armbrose and Reigns make their way closer to the ring and look for Seth Rollins. We get back from a commercial break to see Titus clothesline Kane and put him in a headlock, then Kane makes it to his feet and punches Titus in the stomach. Titus kicks him and sets up a suplex, but Kane reverses it and tags Bryan, who runs in and hits a quick clothesline. (Cont'd...)
