Too Used

So news broke this week that TNA were in talks with Brian Lawler and Scott Garland. AKA Royal Rumble 2000 interval act - Too Cool.

TNA obviously believe that tag team wrestling isn't dead yet. But they'll do everything in their power to make sure it happens. Why not hire a criminal to do this? And when that fails to kill the tag division, stick to what you're good at and continue re-hiring former WWE and WCW "talent".

When TNA realises how to be good, WWE will pick up its' game and finally be good. The result? Fans win!

To be the man...

So Ric Flair's not been around for a while. He's at loggerheads with Vince over plans for his retirement angle.

Some media sources in Carolina are even describing him as a "retired professional wrestler".

But why is he upset? Let's look back to when we last saw Space Mountain himself.

It was on Smackdown. And he jobbed for someone. Not just anybody though. It was the Great Khali. It was the debut of the head squish of doom. WWE creative decided to make a living legend job to the worst move of all time in order to put Khali over.

No wonder Ric's not been on TV for a while. He has self-respect.

In mental circumstances, John Cena has been stripped of the WWE title after over a year with the strap.

Mick Foley always said that the most painful looking moves are usually the least painful to actually take and vice versa. It comes as no surprise then, that John Cena is out of action for up to a year because of a hip toss.

It's sad to see such a major injury happen in the ring (HIS MUSCLE WAS TORN FROM THE BONE) regardless of the person it happens to.

So what of the WWE title now?

There will be a title match to crown a new champion at No Mercy on sunday night. My guess is that this match will be between Randy Orton and hopefully, fingers crossed, I really hope so, a returning Chris Jericho. But Jericho as a face? Possibly. He was cheered when he first arrived at the WWF when he was talking trash on the company's biggest face.

I usually avoid paying for PPVs as Sky tend to put only the Big Four on Box Office while the rest are on SkySports. WHY IS NO MERCY ON BOX OFFICE?!

Yargh. £15 to see Y2J's return. He's worth it. I'll even avoid wrestling sites the day after to make sure that I see his return as if it were live.

Jesus I'm such a mark.
