2017 WHATEVER THE HELL USED TO BE TNA DISCUSSION THREAD

Observer posted about it and cited GFW's concern with Alberto's long-term behavior, which would literally be the first time in TNA's history that they gave a shit about that (I'm looking at you, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle).

Still, good on GFW to decide to pull the trigger even though the police investigation turned up otherwise; a LOT of other places would've just turned away from it.  Maybe it's a sign GFW's finally getting their act together (although I wouldn't bet cash money on that).

Honestly, it sounds more like they stripped him because he can't be bothered to show up for the TV tapings than any concern over his behavior.  "Alberto is skipping a booking" is far more believable than "TNA/GFW suddenly cares about discipline."

Although maybe TNA was upset about Del Rio breaking kayfabe.



Apparently the problem is that he didn't have a big enough house.

we are nonetheless disappointed with the manor in which he dealt with this situation

Part of me wonders if the real reason for this is that they only have enough money for one ex WWE guy to build around and they decided John Hennigan was better for them?

Well, if that was the case then that would be a huge upgrade.

Guys, I think we know where this is headed.... Jarrett finishes 2017 as champ.  

Jeff and Karen then recreate Triple H and Stephanie's WM biker entrance in an empty minor league stadium at Bound for Glory 2018.... booked by Vince Russo.

I called Jarrett ending 2017 as champion.

They'll recreate HHH & Steph's entrance with Karen hanging on to Jeff on the back of a Huffy.

You guys act like Alberto isn't going to just win the title back right away.

Well since he isn't going be at the tapings... "right back" meaning the Nov tapings then

It's hard to put "right away" in context when they film like four months of shows in a matter of days.

He's gonna have to get in line, behind Jarrett's "you still got it" run.

Never change, TNA/GWF.

hahaha oh lord. The Impact following this Bound For Glory didn't have a match for the ENTIRE FIRST HOUR. It was Hogan and Bischoff doing a WORKED SHOOT, BROTHER about their master plan, and some porn-level acting from Dixie. Man, fuck this company forever.

I think stripping Alberto has less to do with his manor, his house si si si, perro, and more to do with the laziness of just being able to kill time by doing another fucking tournament and finally presenting the new belt (which probably still isn't even done) to the winner at BFG.

These marathon tapings are also how you end up with guys going on coke binges and getting stuck with months of tv in the can after your top guy gets caught in the airport coming off a coke binge.

This is their chance to bring back King of the Mountain

TBH, I am surprise it wasn't brought in on the inaugural broadcast.  JJ has shown unusual restraint in not draping himself with a vanity championship by now.

He'll hold a title before the end of the year, though.

I almost added the caveat "if TNA lasts that long" but this fed has proven to be the cockroach of professional wrestling.

Honestly - has a company changed their belts this many times in such a short period of time?

Oh and based on that - they are dumping "Knockouts" and going with "Women's Champion"

Pope announced he's gone from GFW. I liked him as the middle man between JB & Josh as of late.

Tyrus says he's sitting out until creative treats him better.

That Tyrus one still seems like him just trying to get an angle for himself and will be there but who knows

Petey Williams is set to return at the next set of Tapings. They like aping WWE storylines so maybe with Anthem being a Canadian company GFW starts a more aggressive expansion into Canada and with the World Title now vacant Petey wins a tournament beating Morrison in the final for the World title as they expand into Canada ala Jinder Mahal and WWE's exapension into India.
