Kurt Angle offended by Punk’s Nazi Pope comment: TNA star Kurt Angle was offended by CM Punk‘s recent Tweet that called the resigning Pope a Nazi. In response Kurt called Punk “Skinny”. “Cm Punk Should thank GOD that the Pope is a forgiving Man. Because Even the Pope Could Whip Punk’s skinny ass” As reported yesterday CM Punk retweetd somebody’s pun: “@jonodiener: The pope resigned? I did nazi that coming.” Magic. This prompted a bit of a backlash from some of Punk’s followers. One fan Tweeted: “That’s an envelope-pushing tweet for a company employee.” Punk bluntly responded: “Oh piss off. Pope was a nazi.” Angle and Punk have had a few exchanges on Twitter before. _____________________________________________________________ Lockdown won’t all be in the cage: TNA have changed the format for Lockdown, where only the main events will be featured inside the cage. Daniels all but confirmed this during a Q&A with the company’s new online partner Machinima… “I think we may have a probably a lethal lockdown match and maybe perhaps the main event” While this has not been officially announced, the all cage format has been a major point of criticism over the years. _____________________________________________________________ The Rock Tweets Jeff Jarrett after Raw promo: Following his promo on last night’s Raw, The Rock Tweeted Jeff Jarrett… “@JeffJarrettTNA Had to tell a few of our USWA stories tonight on #RAW my friend. From 40 bucks a night to @WWE Champ. #NashvilleDreams” Jarrett repsonded: “Phone blowing up… Twitter blowing up… @TheRock #theRocksays #40bucks” For those that missed Raw it was “story time with the Rock” and he recalled wrestling in Nashville at the Fairgrounds and Car Dealerships for $40 a night when he was Flex Cavanna, in USWA. He named dropped Jarrett who was also part of the company. _____________________________________________________________ JBL happy to see Dutch Mantel in WWE: JBL is excited to see his old friend Dutch Mantel back in WWE, now acting as right wing manager Zeb Coulter for Jack Swagger. He Tweeted… “Zeb is huge addition to @wwe @RealJackSwagger he is one of best talkers in the biz and he and Swagger will be a great team. Glad he’s back!” JBL was aligned with Mantel when he was Uncle Zeb in the mid 90s, and JBL was Justin Hawk Bradshaw.
