Will- SHOULD- Kurt be wrestling at TNA’s Hard Justice PPV?

anglemma.jpgIf you haven’t heard that Kurt Angle was arrested Saturday, the day before TNA’s Hard Justice PPV, for allegedly stalking his girlfreind outside a Starbucks who had just put on a restraining order on him, then you must be working double shifts in a hole in the ground.

Kurt’s charges include driving while under a suspension, possession of HGH in syringes and creepy stalking behavior.

What it amounts to is a really, really bad night for Kurt and his- we assume- ex, with the sun dawning and finding one person in a coffee shop and the other circling the neighborhood in a car. Kurt claims he was driving his girlfriend’s car in search of a hotel room and was unaware that his girlfreind was in the Starbucks he happened to be circling. The police kicked him out of his home the night before because of a restraining order given by said girlfreind- who happens to be a Knockout, so Kurt would need to check into a hotel room. Kurt claims he has a subscription for the HGH and by all accounts was able to produce the right form. Kurt’s girlfreind claims Kurt saw her in the restaurant and she was concerned that Kurt was deleting evidence of abuse recorded on her cell phone, which he was in possession of. The media is reporting on the dawn of a really bad night frought with domestic drama-we don’t WANT to know the whole story about what happened to bring about this climatic arrest.

Which bring us to the questions that have to be asked now. Has Kurt’s personal life gotten so completely out of hand that it’s spilling into the media, or was this just a night everyone would sooner put behind them and move on? Can TNA ignore the PR from this incident?

Kurt’s girlfreind is terrified of Kurt and it’s related in reports in a matter of fact fashion that she’d documenting abuse by Kurt. Kurt is showing absolutely no sound judgement in driving around while under a suspension.

Reports and articles have already been written about just how hard Kurt Angle is being worked by TNA. Angle was TNA’s ticket to TV land and TNA couldn’t afford to let Kurt work a sane schedule. Kurt’s inability to back down from a challenge made hime ripe for abuse by TNA. One one side then we have Kurt unable to stop himself and on the other side a company unwilling to stop taking advantage of Kurt’s ego. Even when Kurt injured his neck again. Even when his family came apart at the seams. Even when Kurt dropped huge weight after the neck injury and the strain he put himself under was really beginning to show.

How about now, when Kurt is so stressed out he’s begun acting in a fashion that gets restraining orders put on him? When his girlfreind is documenting abuse on her cell phone? When Kurt finds himself arrested a day before TNA’s biggest PPV of the year?

Kurt’s lawyers managed to get a judge to sit through an arrangement for bail and Kurt left the jail late Saturday evening. Now Kurt’s going to take the red eye down to Orlando to wrestle yet ANOTHER main event, then follow this incident up with three days of tapings for iMPACT. Then Kurt will be free to continue to vent and stomp and storm and scare the crap out of everyone around him as he wrestles with whatever personal demons are dragging on him.

How about TNA, or somebody with a lick of courage, or sense of decency, step in and sideline Kurt and give the man the excuse he needs to get his house in order and recuperate? We’ve talked about interventions before and how they can only happen when the parasites have sucked their lunch dry. In Kurt’s case, it will be his sanity and his health irreparibly destroyed. TNA owes way too much to perhaps the greatest technical wrestler of all time to allow Kurt to tap himself out.

Woman detained in Mexican Pro Wrestlers deaths

wrestle.jpgThe Associated Press is reporting Police have detained a woman in the deaths of two professional wrestlers who were found drugged in a low-rent hotel in the Mexican capital, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The 65-year-old suspect is one of two women caught on surveillance video leaving the victims’ hotel room, Mexico City prosecutors said in a statement.

The statement said an autopsy on the two wrestlers, who were brothers, detected a substance found in eye drops that can damage the nervous system when mixed with alcohol.

One of the diminutive wrestlers went by the name “La Parkita” — or “Little Death” — and wore a skeleton costume in the ring. The other was known as “Espectrito Jr.”

Prosecutors said previously that gangs of female robbers are experienced at using drugs to knock men out and rob them, but they may have used too strong a dose in this instance.

That may have been because of the wrestlers’ small stature, although larger men have also died in similar crimes.

Police located the suspect by tracing calls from a cell phone belonging to one of the victims, the statement said. She was arrested Tuesday.

Complete list of trades between WWE brands

wwelogo21.jpegMoving to the Raw roster:
Gail Kim
Alicia Fox
Jack Swagger
Evan Bourne
Mark Henry

Moving to the SmackDown roster:
Matt Hardy
Finlay
The Hart Dynasty – David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd, and Natalya

Moving to the ECW roster:
Shelton Benjamin
Goldust
William Regal
Brie & Nikki Bella

Moving Shelton Benjamin and William Regal to ECW is an interesting move and will succeed in freshening the ECW program. Benjamin has a chance to prove he’s a Main event by feuding with none other than Capt. charisma himself. Will William Regal be heel or face? We think William will take over Finlay’s role as the veteran schooling the new talent. This will give Regal a bigger role and more air time, which we like. Goldust on ECW is fine- Dusty has demonstrated he’s a funny guy in a segment- he and Hornswaggle had us in stitched with their impresion of ‘a few good men’, but Dusty in shape can also do a great match. Dusty will be stepping into the formidably large spot now vacated by Mark Henry.

The Hart Dynasty will probably continue their feuding with Finlay. Natalya will not only be acting as the voice of the new Hary Dynasy, she’ll also be wrestling with Women’s Champion McCool. That adds up to a lot of exposure on Smackdown. Matt Hardy will be a welcome addition to the Smackdown program, but what’s the best fit?

Raw wins in this trade up. Jack Swagger and Evan Bourne will be welcome fresh faces for the top talent to feud against. Gail Kim and Alicia Fox were the standout talent over at Smackdown, in spite of booking seemingly design to consign any Diva not named McCool to oblivion. Gail Kim’s risky style- when it works- is the big spot for every match she’s in and Alicia can take bumps and works hard to make each match work. The Diva division on RAW has had a much needed injection of talent into their program. Mark Henry will be another big guy on RAW- not sure what they have planned, there.

Vickie leaves the WWE, Umaga future endeavoured

rawlogo2020.jpgLast week WWE fans were shocked by the unexpected release of Mr. Kennedy and now this week WWE has come to terms with the Samoan bulldozer Umaga. While our source reports Umaga is telling everyone he quit, speculation is that Umaga has had his third strike with the wellness program.

Another surprise from yesterday’s RAW is Vickie’s announced retirement from the WWE. Looks like this isn’t a hoax, folks. Eddie’s widow quit as raw general manager on last nights show.

After her announcement, Edge came out and roasted her, telling her he wants a divorce. Vickie has rave reviews for her on-screen heel persona and marriage to edge, but now Vickie is made good money and wants to spend more time with her daughters. Vickie may make another appearance on Smackdown to tie up loose ends, but word is she’ll be gone by the end of the month.

Reports are that Batista has undergone surgery for his bicep and will be out of action for 4 to 6 months. Batista was taken out by legacy on last night’s Raw and his title has now been vacated. There will be a four-way at next Week’s Raw for the vacant WWE title: Randy Orton versus John Cena versus Triple H versus The Big Show.

Rumours are CM Punk is turning heel. The main event being advertised for the WWE super show on July 24 and the 25th is Big Show and CM Punk versus Rey Mysterio and John Cena.

CM punk will be up against edge for the world heavyweight title next week on raw.

Tommy dreamer will defend the ECW title against Christian.
