Paul Heyman plays up heart attack storyline on Twitter: Paul Heyman Tweeted CM Punk an image a few minutes ago continuing the storyline of mocking Jerry Lawler’s heart attack. Paul Heyman: “@CMPunk Jeeesh. Can’t escape it anywhere!” There has been a lot of controversy after Heyman pretended to have a heart attack on Monday’s WWE Raw during Jerry Lawler’s return. Reactions were mixed even from those within the wrestling business itself. What ever way you look at it, it’s getting Punk and Heyman heat. ________________________________________________________________________________ Kurt Angle says Brit stars not being used right: TNA star Kurt Angle said the company have dropped the ball where Doug Williams and Magnus are concerned, during a recent interview with the UK Sun newspaper. “I think that TNA as a whole might have dropped the ball a little bit with Doug Williams and Magnus, when you look at the talent they have,” said the former Olympian. “They are starting to use Magnus and I believe they have big plans for him. But the reason I thought they might have dropped the ball is because he was so young when he started. They might have thought ‘he’s just a baby, we can wait,’ but four years later he’s still only 25.” While Magnus has had run against Samoa Joe recently, Doug Williams has been down in OVW. Angle also gave his thoughts on the TNA British Boot Camp contestants, and was particularly high on the Blossom Twins: “They came over and did some stuff at an Impact taping and they were really good. I think these guys have the ability to make it. “With the girls, I saw that they had the mechanics, the technique and were very talented. “They just need to tighten a bit as far as fitness is concerned. They need to get their bodies a little harder and in better shape. Not that they were in bad shape, they looked good, but when you are in that ring, you need to look great. “Other than that, I thought the girls did a phenomenal job and worked with some of our best. I thought that was pretty impressive.” The show begins in January on Challenge. ________________________________________________________________________________ WWE set to release talent now Linda has bowed out?: WWE are likely to release several wrestlers from their contracts now that Linda McMahon has bowed out of politics, according to a report from PWInsider. During Linda’s campaign it was believed that the company were reluctant to fire talent at the rate they used to, in case her opponents picked up on it and questioned her “job creation” platform. In particular, firing several wrestlers at once was frowned upon. In light of this it’s likely we’ll have a mass culling in the coming months. Purging time is usually after Wrestlemania.
