SIX-SIDED RING RETURNS FOR NEXT TNA PAY-PER-VIEW
- For the upcoming Destination X pay-per-view, TNA Wrestling will go back to
their original six-sided ring instead of the normal four sided ring that
they have been using. The company last used its six-sided ring concept at
the 2009 Final Resolution pay-per-view which was headlined by AJ Styles and
Christopher Daniels. This will be a one-time return for the ring
particularly for this pay-per-view and TNA will resume its wrestling in the
traditional four-sided ring from the following IMPACT Wrestling tapings.
Destination X takes place at the IMPACT Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida,
on July 10.
NASH RECENTLY ARRESTED FOR PROTECTING WIFE FROM A DRUNK
- TMZ.COM is reporting that former WWE and WCW champion Kevin Nash was
arrested recently for beating up on a drunk guy after his wife was getting
harassed by the guy who got his ass whooped. TMZ obtained the police report
which stated that Nash and his wife were leaving a restaurant after dinner
and a guy under the influence of alcohol approached his wife. When he was
told to leave, the guy refused and got aggressive, leaving no other option
for Nash to deck him. Police were called in and Nash held the man down until
they showed up but instead cops took the former champ in custody on
suspicion of battery, a charge that was eventually dropped due to lack of
evidence. When TMZ spoke with Nash, he said that if he wanted to sue he'd
have a good case. "I'm a 52-year-old fake fighter. My hands aren't deadly
weapons," he said sarcastically.
JIM ROSS TO UNDERGO SURGERY
- In his always-interesting blog, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross said that he
will be undergoing surgery once again this week to fix an incisional hernia
in his abdomen. "My surgeon is the same one who performed colon surgery, and
no, not the beloved Dr. Heiney, a few years ago on me," joked Ross,
referring to the skit that WWE did years ago on TV about him. "This issue
evolved just over the past 3-4 months and I'm told that getting it repaired
now would be timely and prevent other related health issues going forward."
We wish JR a speedy recovery!
