Happier times for Jay Lethal: Applying the Figure-Four to childhood hero the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair

Happier times for Jay Lethal: Applying the Figure-Four to childhood hero the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair

Former TNA Wrestler Jay Lethal was on Online World of Wrestling Radio and Discussed TNA, here’s a transcript of what was said:

On speaking with Randy Savage for the first time and what Randy Savage thought of the impression: “The first conversation we had lasted for five minutes. It was a three way call because I did not believe that it was it was really the macho man, as the guy was trying to get me to believe it was really him. He told me he liked the stuff, he didnt see it on TV, but saw it on youtube, I didn’t think I offended him, I think I annoyed him, as this fan was calling him, as I am a fan of Macho Man, its very weird to have a fan call you, just to talk.” Read more of this post


Sting: Chose TNA Return over WM Bout with Undertaker

Sting: Chose TNA Return over WM Bout with Undertaker

TNA legend Sting (a/k/a Steve Borden) recently spoke with Kevin Eck of the Baltimore Sun’s Ring Posts blog, here’s a transcript of the main talking points from the interview:

About the Jeff Hardy Debacle at Victory Road
“I want to be careful with my words here because I really like Jeff Hardy,” Sting said. “I’m hoping he can come back because that guy is so talented, but he has personal issues in his life and it just became too much for him, too overwhelming, and he just couldn’t cope and didn’t know how to handle it.

“So he made some bad choices and he’s having to deal with those choices and the consequences now. I hear he’s doing much, much better. Last I heard, he was riding his bike 10 miles a day and just getting in great shape and his life was getting in some kind of order…

Sting was also asked whether it’s true that no one seemed to know what was going on with Hardy at Victory Road until shortly before the match. “That’s pretty accurate. I’d say a good 45 minutes to an hour before the match actually happened, things started to deteriorate, and I just went, “Oh, boy.” I kept hoping maybe somehow or another he’ll come to his senses and snap out of it, but it didn’t happen. It was just out of hand and I didn’t have a choice other than to do what I did.” Read more of this post

As many of our twitter followers will already know, Kurt Angle was part of a lengthy interview with Rob McNichol and Joel Ross on the Sun’s Wrestlecast podcast. The following are highlights of the interview, which is available for download at thesun.co.uk.

— Angle claims The Undertaker approached him to break the Undefeated Streak at WrestleMania in 2006, which was a few months prior to Angle leaving WWE for TNA, but the match didn’t materialize.

“The person who wanted to do it was Undertaker himself. I was flattered, for him to go to Vince McMahon and pitch it,” Angle said. “To me that meant a lot because Undertaker had a lot of respect for me – and I had more respect for him than he did for me.” Read more of this post
