Sami Zayn

Sami Zayn bound for glory

An unnecessary and minor controversy erupted over social media this weekend. Sami Zayn innocently posted that he was "bound for glory". Of course, that happens to be the name of a TNA pay per view, which immediately sparked speculations over his future with WWE. Zayn is not going to be jumping ship anytime soon. He is currently healing from a shoulder injury and will be back on television very soon.

WWE divas too emotional

Since so much of the spotlight is on them now, WWE has to be very careful in how they book the divas. There are already some concerns backstage that the creative department is making them appear too emotional at times. Crying is fine if the segment is Charlotte winning the divas championship for the very first time. However, the emotional overplay should not take place on a weekly basis.

Vince Russo

Seth Rollins not over

According to Vince Russo, Seth Rollins is not over with the audience. He places the blame squarely on the creative department in WWE, citing that Rollins does not have a consistent character. Russo feels that Rollins changes up too frequently between being a coward and being courageous. One week, the world heavyweight champion will be running away from a challenger. The next week, he'll stand up to Dean Ambrose or Triple H.

Kevin Sullivan

Big Boss Man bonus

There is a dispute online right now between Eric Bischoff and Kevin Sullivan. Sullivan claims that when the Big Boss Man was working in WCW, he had a clause in his contract that paid him approximately $25,000 for each pay per view, even if he was not featured on the show. The reason for that is because his contract was signed before Hulk Hogan was brought on board. Bischoff denies that this contract clause exists.

Lashley regaining title

As many of you already know, TNA is doing a World Title Series to determine a new heavyweight champion. Tournament matches are being filmed this week, and there are rumors that Bobby Lashley is going to end up being crowned as the top guy in the promotion again. There are also talks that he will face Matt Hardy in the finals, which means that Ethan Carter will be out of the picture.

Galloway on Undertaker

When asked about one of his most memorable moments in WWE, Drew Galloway was quick to point out his brief program with the Undertaker. He stated that he was rather shocked when management told him that he would be making his entrance after the legendary performer. Usually, the Phenom comes out last because his entrance routine is one of the bigger selling points of a live event.

Undertaker fears cucumbers

In a rather interesting tidbit, Savio Vega revealed that Undertaker absolutely hates cucumbers. He suggested that the hate might have actually been fear, saying that the fruit was the equivalent of Kryptonite to him. Vega also revealed that he has been involved in backstage pranks involving said fruit and the Phenom. That shows just how much backstage stroke that Vega had in WWE back then.

Rockstar Spud

Hardcore Halloween canceled

Initially, Rockstar Spud, Brooke Tessmacher and several other TNA performers were scheduled to do a quick three show tour at the end of the month. However, management has now decided to cancel the Hardcore Halloween events. It is being said that changes in logistics are the reason for the cancellation, as the front office was rather pleased with how ticket sales were going. The performers are still getting a paycheck for that weekend.

TNA negotiates with James Storm

Now faced with the reality that they might lose one of their longest standing performers, TNA has made some calls to James Storm to see if he would be interested in staying with the promotion instead of joining NXT on a full time basis. Reports have surfaced that Storm has not officially signed a long term agreement with WWE just yet. A decision will be needed from the former world heavyweight champion soon.
