Bully Ray
Reports have surfaced that the contract between Bully Ray and TNA has now officially expired. The two sides had been trying to negotiate a new deal, but financial terms could not be met. The former world heavyweight champion is still listed on the official roster page on the TNA website. The belief is that the company might wait until a new television deal has been signed before renegotiating with some of the bigger stars.
August 25, 2014
Bully Ray
A lot of eyes are on the contract negotiations between Bully Ray and TNA at the moment. Many are curious to see if the company will actually let another top level performer walk away. Reports have surfaced that one of the things holding up the deal is the fact that management wants to wait until a new television deal can be reached. TNA is willing to sign the lower level performers right now since the deals are not as expensive.
August 22, 2014
Bully Ray
While the negotiation continues between the two sides, the belief is that Bully Ray and TNA are far apart on the financial terms. Management wants to keep their former world heavyweight champion around because he is quite the asset to the roster. However, they are limited in what they can pay him, much like how they had to let AJ Styles leave. Since neither side is willing to budge, it looks like the relationship could be over soon.
August 21, 2014
Bully Ray
Since he has worked himself into shape and became a legitimate main event performer, many are speculating that Bully Ray will be heading to WWE after his contract with TNA expires in a couple of days. However, reports are surfacing that WWE is hesitant to bring him back. Aside from his age, there are those backstage in the company that do not like Bully.
August 21, 2014
Devon
While it appears that Bully Ray is on his way out of TNA once his contract expires in a few days, his tag team partner isn't going anywhere. Devon is reportedly under contract with the company until next year. As of this point, it is unclear what management will do if they are unable to come to terms on a new deal with Bully. Both sides are reportedly still in negotiations.
August 19, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are floating around right now that Bully Ray has informed the TNA locker room that he will be leaving the company. That comes as a shock because the former world heavyweight champion had been gaining a bit of power backstage. His contract expires in September, and negotiations are said to be ongoing. The company has been locking up a handful of wrestlers over the last few weeks, so it's not impossible for them to work out another contract with Bully.
August 17, 2014
Bully Ray
In a sign of how much power he has gained backstage, Bully Ray was recently put in charge of a talent meeting to explain to the performers that TNA was still going to remain in business. The former world heavyweight champion has been given access to details of the negotiations that the company has undertaken with the various television networks.
August 17, 2014
Dixie Carter
Since her character has a broken back, Dixie Carter is selling that fact by staying away from Impact Wrestling. However, TNA fans will get to see her at least once more. Mikey Tenay and Carter will be doing an interview from her home soon. The move is designed to further the story line and generate more of a reaction for Bully Ray and the other faces.
August 15, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the big stories of the year is that Dixie Carter allowed herself to be placed through a table by Bully Ray on Impact Wrestling. That has brought some praise, both from within TNA and across the industry, for Carter. She is not a trained professional wrestler, and she is closing in on 50 years of age. Some do believe that she is trying her best to help the company out.
August 14, 2014
Dixie Carter
Since the company views it as a monumental moment, TNA is now selling the table that was shattered to pieces when Bully Ray delivered a top rope power bomb to Dixie Carter on Impact Wrestling last week. The cost is $199.99. It comes with a photo, a piece of the ring canvas, a piece of the table and a certificate of authenticity. It might become a collector's item some day.
August 11, 2014
Bully Ray
For those of you that are not aware, the segment on Impact Wrestling where Dixie Carter was slammed through a table by Bully Ray was designed to write her out of the story line. She has long wanted to be removed from television. TNA came up with a pretty clever way of generating publicity and giving the fans the feel good moment that they have been yearning for.
August 8, 2014
Dixie Carter
TNA is really hoping to spike the ratings for Impact Wrestling this week. The company has already filmed footage of Bully Ray putting Dixie Carter through a table, and they're using that to draw in viewers. The company has even released a public statement, calling August 7th, "National Put Your Boss Through A Table Day". The belief is that TNA is trying to convince Spike to give them a new television deal.
August 4, 2014
Great Muta
Since his company is folding and he is joining the Great Muta in Wrestle-1, there are talks that Tajiri could be making an appearance in TNA very soon, as the two companies have been working closely together nowadays. Tajiri still has some name value due to his stint in WWE, and he has a connection with characters like Rhyno, Bully Ray, Tommy Dreamer and Devon.
July 6, 2014
Bully Ray
A rather interesting conversation took place between Bully Ray and Chris Jericho on the latter's podcast show this week. The ECW legend revealed that he used to work in the porn industry. Bully said that he directed a couple of films, thanks in part to his friendship with Rob Black, the porn producer who eventually got involved in professional wrestling. While Bully did not reveal the titles of the movie, he did state that one of them included porn legend Ron Jeremy.
June 21, 2014
Chris Sabin
During a recent radio interview, Bully Ray shocked a lot of wrestling fans when he revealed that he was dating Velvet Sky. Many were under the impression that the TNA Knockout was still dating Chris Sabin, who recently left the company as a free agent. There might be some validity to the claims made by Bully Ray as Sabin has been spotted with another woman, possibly his new girlfriend, as of late.
June 18, 2014
Bully Ray
When TNA announced at Slammiversary 2014 that Devon and Bully Ray were going to be inducted into the hall of fame, it led to a lot of speculation about the status of Devon with the company. It looks like the former television champion is making a return to TNA, as his profile has been restored on the official roster page on their website.
June 17, 2014
Bully Ray
While there are still some questions whether or not this is a shoot or a story line, Tommy Dreamer is telling fans that he might be done with TNA as a backstage agent after an incident where he bashed Dixie Carter for removing Bully Ray at the last minute from his House of Hardcore show. His departure has not been confirmed yet, and many are still under the belief that this is an elaborate work.
June 11, 2014
Dixie Carter
As many of you already know by now, TNA pulled Bully Ray at the last minute from a House of Hardcore show, which led to Tommy Dreamer cutting a scathing promo on Dixie Carter. The supposed backstage heat has now spilled over to social media, as Carter has responded to Dreamer on Twitter. The two have gone back and forth.
June 10, 2014
Hulk Hogan
"No, I don't think it's caused a big hole at all. He split, that's it, he's gone. He was on TV with TNA probably more than he should have been, and he was talking up a lot of prime real estate where younger guys could have been. If I was writing a show, Hulk would have been in one story and he would be on the show one time, so we can feature him, give the people their Babe Ruth and that's it." - Bully Ray discusses Hulk Hogan during his interview with Chris Jericho
June 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heavily floating around right now that TNA and House of Hardcore are working together. When Tommy Dreamer cut what seemed to be a shoot interview about Dixie Carter pulling Bully Ray from his show, some felt that it was out of character for Dreamer to do that, as he is viewed as one of the more respectful guys in the industry. Plus, Dreamer himself has a working relationship with TNA already, so it would not be hard to fathom that he would align his company with Carter.
June 8, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.

February 26, 2014
Batista
During the Smackdown taping, Batista opened up the show and addressed the audience. Dolph Ziggler came out and issued a challenge. Batista laughs at him, so Ziggler gives him a drop kick. The match itself, was set for later in the show, was a quick squash. It should be noted that Batista played the heel role throughout the match.
February 26, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
In order to build up his credibility for the Elimination Chamber 2014 main event, WWE pulled the trigger on a big moment for Antonio Cesaro at the Smackdown taping on Tuesday. In the main event of the episode, he cleanly defeated and pinned Randy Orton, the heavyweight champion.
February 12, 2014
Big E Langston
In a rather interesting move during the Smackdown taping, WWE did a number one contender's match to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the Intercontinental Championship. Rey Mysterio, Mark Henry and Kofi Kingston were involved, but Jack Swagger was the one that ended up winning the match.
February 12, 2014

January 30, 2014
