I heard Christian wasn’t happy about appearing at TNA Slammiversary on Sunday. Is that true?
TNA and WWE worked out a deal that in exchange for letting Ric Flair (a contracted TNA worker) appear for WWE at the Hall of Fame Ceremony and Wrestlemania, WWE would let one of their contracted workers appear on TNA programming. I don’t know what the selection process was like but Christian ended up being decided upon and the deal was obviously in place prior to the lawsuit drama. I could see why Christian would be reluctant to appear, given how long it took him to force Vince McMahon to pay attention to him in the first place, but it’s not like he was forced to appear either.
Does Karen Jarrett have a point about Jeff Jarrett not being the first induction into the TNA Hall of Fame?
The TNA Hall of Fame is a work just like the WWE Hall of Fame. They are not legitimate places of glory (although being inducted is still an honor) but rather events that help promote pay-per-view buys and spark interest. From TNA’s standpoint, who draws more? – Jeff Jarrett or Sting? Jeff and his father did a great job in founding TNA and giving people another place to work but when he lost majority ownership, he also lost a lot of influence. He had hung on until recently but now things do not appear good with the political influence of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff at an all-time high.
Given all of the recent injuries in WWE do you see the company going to a lighter schedule?
This comes up a lot because workers get injured a lot, however, I just don’t see how it’s possible. There is so much money on the line that working a lighter schedule would cause the company to make less money. Vince McMahon’s mentality is “next guy up” and that once someone is plugged into the WWE machine, they can become a huge draw. We can debate it all day long but the fact of the matter is there is simply too much money at stake.
What’s the latest on Matt Morgan? Could he still end up in WWE?
Matt Morgan is officially advertised for TNA live events this weekend in matches against Crimson on June 14th in Belton, Texas and June 16th in Houston, Texas. Morgan recently said his contract with TNA was up in October so it would appear he’s being used until then. As for him returning to WWE it’s possible and something Morgan recently said he would not rule out.
