One of my objectives in reporting live at TNA’s live event in Beckley on Saturday was to get a feel for the backstage reaction to Sorensen’s serious injury. The consensus from the workers I spoke with was it was the “nature of the beast” and competing at this high of a level, everyone is susceptible to serious injury. No one seemed to blame Zema Ion although there was some concern if both Sorensen and Ion were ready for such a bout.
