Jesse Neal Injured

Jesse Neal: Suffered injury at Sacrifice

According to TNA sources, Jesse Neal suffered a neck injury and potential concussion during Sunday’s TNA Sacrifice PPV.

The injury occurred during the finish of the Ink, Inc. vs. Mexican America match when Hernandez executed a dominator-like finisher on Neal. Neal was at this week’s Impact TV tapings, but he wasn’t booked for any matches as a precaution following the neck trauma.

According to one source, Neal “looked loopy” and couldn’t turn his head to the side. Neal tried acting tough, telling colleagues he wasn’t sure if he had a concussion, but an MRI showed he had a bulged disk after being spiked into the mat Sunday night.

Hernandez has developed a backstage reputation for being unsafe to work with. In February, Hernandez dropped Doug Williams on his head/neck executing a Border Toss during a TV match. Williams avoided serious injury, but it was enough of a scare where the match was halted.

Aftermath of iMPACT: “THE NETWORK’S REVENGE” – 17/05/2011

TNA iMPACT!: “THE NETWORK IS COMING”

IMPACT Wrestling: “THE NETWORK'S REVENGE”

IMPACT Wrestling – “THE NETWORK’S REVENGE
Tuesday 17th May 2011 – 10pm on Challenge

THIS WEEK ON IMPACT!:
Mr. Anderson wins 25 Man Battle Royal for Number 1 Contendership
Crimson d. Abyss & Samoa Joe
 Chyna returns to Pro Wrestling as Kurt Angle’s hired “Mistress”
Mick Foley is revealed as the Network’s Representative
 Sangriento d. Suicide
 “Wildcat” Chris Harris is revealed as Matt Hardy’s Mystery Tag-Partner
 AJ Styles confronts Tommy Dreamer regarding his actions 
 Ric Flair returns…but he is NOT the Network Rep
 Mickie James & Miss Tessmacher d. Madison Rayne & Tara

The IMPACT Wrestling era began with a bang and one of the best episodes in a long time. Mick Foley’s reveal as the Network Representative was well built and made a ton of sense. Mick has a rocky history (both on and off screen) with Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan, is good personal friends with Sting and Kurt Angle and is a great talker. This is the perfect role for Mick.

I enjoyed the interchange between Mick and Hulk and i loved the digs at WWE with “wrestling matters”, but if i’m allowed to nitpick i thought the change to IMPACT Wrestling wasn’t very clear for the casual viewers for whom it would have come across as a random announcement that really didn’t mean anything at the end of the day. TNA will have to do a better job explaining this change to their entire audience in the weeks to come. Read more of this post

Jesse Neal reacts to news of Osama Bin Laden's death

TNA Wrestling have just posted the following on their website:

On Sunday night, we learned that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by United States military forces. As the entire world reacted to the news, USS Cole veteran and TNA Wrestler Jesse Neal expressed his feelings via his Twitter account @jessenealtna.

Jesse Neal served on the USS Cole. On October 12, 2000, the USS Cole was refueling at the Yemeni port of Aden when the ship became a target of a terrorist attack under Bin Laden that resulted in the deaths of 17 people which included Neal’s best friend, which changed his life forever. After leaving the Navy, Neal decided to pursue wrestling as it was a dream he and his best friend had shared.

Upon hearing the news, Neal excitedly Tweeted:

“Wow!!!!! Everything is getting in its right place! He is lucky it wasn’t me that caught him!!! Ya I said it! Karma is a bitch!”

Then, Neal posted a follow-up message paying respect to his military brothers:

“Although he is caught and dead, it don’t bring them back, but just tells us to always remember “The Fallen”! We r here for a reason”

TNA Wrestling would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our military forces around the world for serving and protecting our great nation. We also hope you remember all of the victims of 9/11 and their families.
