Monday Headlines: It Ain't Much, But It's News
Happy Monday to you all! It’s your boy Fozzie, here to bring you all the muck that’s fit to rake. In case you’re wondering where my partner in crime is, he is in Louisiana, because dingus can’t read a calendar properly. Anyway, here is the fake news.
Da Fuq TNA?
In case you missed it, and juding by the low attendance figures, you’re like most people, TNA ran a house show in Missouri over the weekend that ran into one small problem: most of the wrestlers were not licensed to wrestle in “The Show-Me State.” You would think this would come up sometime in between the booking of the venue and the date of the show, but this is TNA land where anything can truly happen, such as a DQ in a cage match because no one could climb out of the hole in the top of the cage because Spider-Man is not a real person.

Before I move on to my next piece, I just want to say that in my opinion, TNA is on its last legs. The way this company operates is very non-professional, and even though I know Dixie’s father can sustain the losses, how much longer does he want to keep doing that. They are going to need new ownership really soon, otherwise we’ll be watching “The Fall and Plummet of TNA” in about two years.
Dibiase </3 Warrior
To the surprise of nobody, it turns out that “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase did not exactly like the Ultimate Warrior, or his contribution to the wrestling world. Dibiase essentially said that Warrior was a charismatic yet boring wrestler who doesn’t deserve a Hall of Fame induction because he basically used the wrestling industry and had no respect for it. I call shenanigans on that Mr. “buy the belt from Andre.” While I think that Warrior will get in the Hall of Fame one day, there is only one person who should be known as a charismatic yet boring wrestler, and if he’s in, so too shall Warrior be in:
Chris Jericho recently sent a tweet that included a picture of himself whn he first started, and hinted that we may have seen the last of him in a wrestling ring. I won’t believe that until the day he’s standing in the ring with tears in his eyes, but if that day should be closer than we know, then a big thank you is in prder for the Man of 1,004 Holds. He will go down as one of the all time greats, and will go out never having to put over JTG. (Twitter)
