MY NEW HOME: THE DAILY DROPKICK

The Daily Dropkick

The Daily Dropkick

For the kind, lost souls that are still coming here…

Regrettably I have to inform you that TNAUK is no more. I’ve been so busy with other projects, including writing for other wrestling websites that I just don’t have the time to devote to writing, posting and editing the many contributions to the site each day.

Going forward i’ll be focusing my attentions on my other writing obligations at 1Wrestling.com and will also be posting regularly at my personal blog The Daily Dropkick, where you can still get your daily dose of news, rumours, interviews, reviews and ratings reports. All my regular features you know and love from TNA UK  will be available there.
I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished at this site over the last year and half, we’ve done a great job promoting TNA and i know for a fact it didn’t go unnoticed. The aim was ultimately to provide a place for UK TNA fans to congregate, get news and debate and we provided that, however with the advent of the Official UK TNA Facebook page, i’m not sure thats a service that we need to be providing anymore and if anything we’re drawing readers away from the official avenues.
I want to thank everyone who contributed to the site over its lifespan, your all very talented individuals and it was a joy working with you all and editing your work (even when submissions were late or you spelt D’Angelo Dinero wrong five times in a single article!) and I know many of you will be writing blogs of your own going forward and I for one will be reading.
And lastly you, dear reader. Thank you for visiting, commenting and making this blog relevant. I hope you’ll continue to do so over at my new home – dailydropkick.blogspot.com
Many Thanks,
Ray

RIC FLAIR RETURNING TO THE RING?

Ric Flair: Will we see him go toe to toe with Angle or renew his rivalry with Sting?

Ric Flair: Will we see him go toe to toe with Angle or renew his rivalry with Sting?

The Albany Herald in Albany, GA has an article up on Ric Flair, which you can read at http://www.albanyherald.com/sports/.

Flair commented on his return to TNA, stating the following… “I don’t know for sure, but it will be either Sting or Kurt Angle. It just depends on whoever wins between them on Aug. 6. You got the scoop right there, brother.”

Ric Flair’s lawyer has confirmed that Flair’s online store has been up and running for a while. She also stated that Ric Flair is off of TNA TV due to a rotator cuff injury.

MR. ANDERSON: “I DON’T WANT TO BE WRESTLING IN FIVE YEARS TIME!”

Mr. Anderson: Wants out of the grapple game within five years.

Mr. Anderson: Wants out of the grapple game within five years.

IMPACT Wrestling star Ken Anderson told the Dover Post that he doesn’t plan to stick with wrestling for much longer.

“If I’m still doing this five years from now, please, just shoot me,” Anderson said. “I love the wrestlingbusiness, I love entertaining people, but it doesn’t define me. And for people who are defined by this, that’s fine. I don’t judge them or look down on them, but it’s not for me. After 13 years of taking abuse I have aches and pains, and my wife calls me the old man a lot — more than I would like for her to call me. But I know that I can’t do this forever.”

Anderson said he would like to continue acting once his career ends:

“‘E.T.’ was the first movie I ever saw in the theater, and I remember looking at my mom and asking, ‘How does somebody do that? I want to be Elliott.’ It just so happens to be that I live in the greatest country in the world where you can do anything you want. And if you want to be an actor and you work hard at it, you can do that.

“I’d like to transition into movies, TV, maybe some behind-the-scenes stuff here at TNA, or as a commentator. Eventually, my plan is to move to Wyoming on a big place of land and hunt, and fish, and spend time with my family and travel, and do some charity work.”

CHAVO GUERRERO INTERESTED IN WORKING FOR IMPACT WRESTLING?

Chavo Guerrero was on Right After Wrestling Radio this week and mentioned who he would like to wrestle:

“I would love to work with AJ Styles. We always used to call him ‘AJ Steals’ because we thought he was always stealing our moves. But I knew him since he was just a kid breaking into the business. But I would also like to work with Kurt Angle again and to see him again. But in the WWE, I guess a heel Randy Orton would be good to work against.”

PROBLEMS BETWEEN RIC FLAIR AND TNA?

Ric Flair: At odds with TNA Management?

Ric Flair: At odds with TNA Management?

According to the Wrestling Observer, things between TNA and Ric Flair don’t appear to be good right now following an incident at the 7/1 TNA house show in Brooklyn, NY where Flair didn’t appear before the audience despite being advertised to do so.

Flair was not booked for the most recent set of iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings in Orlando this week and was also left off tapings heading into the Destination X PPV as well. The story provided by some in TNA was that Flair wasn’t going to be booked for those TV tapings anyway since the build was for an all X Division PPV, yet the shows leading into the PPV still had major storylines developing.

Flair also wasn’t booked before the Brooklyn event for a while in what some viewed as a cost-cutting measure since he is one of the highest paid people on the roster currently. It should be noted that D’Lo Brown was the TNA agent at the Brooklyn house show and had words with Flair who didn’t want to go out in front of the people. Flair stated he wasn’t told he would be performing and that he agreed to do an autograph signing as a favor to Terry Taylor (the former VP of TNA talent relations, a title now held by former WWE employee Bruce Prichard). He ended up making an appearance in Asbury Park, New Jersey the following night in front of a much smaller crowd.

More as we get it.

UPDATE ON IMPACT WRESTLING GOING ON THE ROAD

TNA's last show on the road was in Fayetteville, NC and was deemed a success.

TNA's last TV Taping on the road was in Fayetteville, NC and was deemed a success.

TNA and Spike TV are announcing upcoming IMPACT Wrestling TV tapings on the road in Huntsville, AL on 8/25, Knoxville, TN on 9/21 and Macon, GA on 10/26 is a three month experiment to see if it makes a difference in the television ratings. Spike will be the ones making the call on this decision since they are providing a majority of the funding. The general agreement among many in TNA is that taking the show on the road is the best thing to do, but they also aren’t in a position financially to do it on a regular basis without Spike’s help.
