Found November 06, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
TNA rookie Sorensen cleared to wrestle: It was at the February 12th, Against All Odds PPV that young TNA hopeful Jesse Sorensen nearly had is career cut short, when he took a bad bump from Zema Ion. He fractured his C-1 vertebrae with damage to his spinal cord and had to be legitimately stretchered from the ring. After a tough nine month recovery program, the 23 year old has now been cleared to return to the ring, some three months earlier than anticipated. He’s booked to face Sonjay Dutt at an APWA event in Shinnston, West Virginia this Saturday. Although he still has some months left on his TNA contract it is not yet known if or when he’ll return to TV. On the July 8th Destination X PPV he vowed that by December he would be the X-Division Champion. That would suggest the company did have plans for when he recovered. ________________________________________________________________________________ Eric Young hints at departure from TNA: According to the Wrestling Observer the contract of long time TNA talent Eric Young is expiring soon, and judging from comments he made yesterday on Twitter, he may be on the way out of the company. The Canadian star who debuted in 2004 wrote: “TNA Live shows in MI and Windsor Canada. Ill be there could be my last live shows with TNA come and get crazy with me!” The 32 year old currently plays the eccentric boyfriend of ODB, but has also been portrayed as a legitimate wrestler in the early World X Cups, was a member of Team Canada, once dressed as the super hero “Super Eric” and has literally held all the titles (including the Knockouts tag belt) but the World and TV championships. Most recently Young has been hosting his own show on Animal Planet, entitled Off the Hook: Extreme Catches. It may be that he simply wants to move on to other projects, but we’ll know more in time. ________________________________________________________________________________ Matt Hardy clarifies brother’s sobriety: In a round about way Matt Hardy has denied allegations made in Scott Steiner’s updated lawsuit against TNA, which claimed his brother Jeff injured Steiner while wrestling intoxicated at a live event on November 3, 2011. The former WWE and TNA star wrote on Twitter: “Since 4/1/11, my brother @JEFFHARDYBRAND’s been the most responsible human being I know. Jeff hasn’t done anything wrong in life since then.” Although Jeff has a record of wrestling messed-up, so far Scott Steiner has not publicly revealed any evidence that the incident took place. Steiner was initially served a lawsuit by TNA in June after he continually bashed the company on Twitter. Steiner counter-sued in September claiming TNA failed to pay him due royalties and that at no point did he contractually agree to not disparage the company, making his comments fall under free speech. He recently updated his lawsuit claiming TNA and Hulk Hogan were responsible for endangering and subsequently injuring him, by booking him against an inebriated Jeff Hardy. Whether he wins or not Steiner is getting just what he wanted…..under the skin of Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan.
