More from TNA’s India Tapings, Final Resolution PPV Buys, Live Event Matches, Jesse Neal Comments On TNA Departure

December 29, 2011   ·   0 Comments

– TNA has announced Jeff Hardy vs. Bobby Roode, James Storm vs. Kurt Angle, Bully Ray vs. AJ Styles, Austin Aries vs. Kid Kash vs. Jesse Sorensen, Gail Kim vs. Mickie James, Partners Matt Morgan vs. Crimson and Garet Bischoff vs. Gunner for this weekend’s live events in Albany and Poughkeepsie, New York. Ric Flair will be in Gunner’s corner.

– TNA taped their Ring Ka King tapings at the Belwadi Sports Complex in Pune, India – a 1,500 seat building that was packed with people turned away. However, a lot of the fans in the crowd were hired by the promoters to be spectators.

– Estimates for TNA’s Final Resolution pay-per-view were 8,000 buys.

Jesse Neal appeared on the Running The Ropes podcast (interview available here). Highlights are as follows:

* Neal says that Christina Von Eerie (a/k/a Toxxin), his girlfriend, was never under contract to TNA Wrestling. Her status with TNA remains unknown following Neal’s departure from the organization.

* Neal says the widespread rumor that he received food stamps earlier this year isn’t true. He does, however, admit that he was almost evicted from his small one bedroom apartment three times this year because he couldn’t afford to pay rent.

* Neal says he rejected TNA’s request to move to Louisville, Kentucky and train at Ohio Valley Wrestling because the money they were offering “wasn’t anything close to live on.” Management told him to get a sidejob if he needed money, but felt that with three shows per week and training six days out of seven he wouldn’t have the time.

* Neal says he spoke to company president Dixie Carter over the phone regarding his situation and was promised it would resolved. He adds she was gracious to him on his final day with the company and was sure she’d see him in TNA again one day.

* Neal praised creative writer Vince Russo, who encouraged him with his promos.

– Samoa Joe faces Kazarian in a Maximum Impact tournament match on this week’s episode of TNA Xplosion (video available here). The winner of the eight-man tournament will receive a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship during TNA’s tour of the U.K. in January.

— Bobby Roode and Mickie James appear at the Poughkeepsie Galleria (located at 2001 South Road Poughkeepsie, New York 12601) this Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

— Rosita posted several messages on her Twitter account Wednesday mocking an Asian woman she rudely encountered the night before at a Fuddruckers restaurant in Connecticut following her twenty-first birthday party. The TNA Knockout claims the woman tried to cut in line. She then posted a picture of her, calling her “Kung Foo Panda.”


She then wrote to Velvet Sky, “You sooo shoulda been there! King foo panda was allllllll ready! Offered to order the bitch bamboo sticks but she wasn’t having it..”
