Word has it coming out of WWE that former WWE champion CM Punk is set to be taking some time off. Because Punk has been at odds with WWE creative over the last few months and also is burnt out which happens when someone has had to have the travel schedule that Punk has had over the last year or so. I know other top guys have to endure the same schedule but I think it’s a combo of both not agreeing with Creative & the schedule that have caused the burn out. That is why WWE made sure to secure both Brock Lesnar & The Rock for appearances at Extreme Rules which is the ppv after Mania.
TNA has come a long way since 2011 but they have also left someone behide and that person is still with the company most people think. I am speaking off Jeff Jarrett who was last seen on TNA programming in late 2011. Then for most of if not all of 2012 Jarrett was in charge of Ring Ka King which was a project TNA did in India. Now with TNA doing One Night Specials in place of PPV’s & they didn’t ask the TNA founder to appear at any of them which is strange. Jeff Jarrett didn’t even appear at the TNA 10 One Night Only special which is very strange with Jeff being the founder in all.
Apparently because of the high costs to rent & operate in Madison Square Garden with the Hall of Fame they are losing money. Your probably wondering why they are going to the arena then well Hunter pushed hard to go to MSG, because of Bruno, Backlund, & Foley having such a history there. Also they feel because Wrestlemania is the area part of the event should be held in Madison Square Garden because of the history.
Also tune in to TNA tonight to see Gut Check with a “Big Name” a part of it tonight. A big name being a man who has been wrestling since 1996, has never been in a Main Stream wrestling. Well he was in WWE for a short time in the late 90′s as a jobber but nothing else. Also he is a former 5 time NWA World Champion and particpated in one of the best feuds in recent memory throutght most of 2012. I will not say his name because I don’t want to spoil it but if this has done it’s job to make you watch Your Welcome!!
