Sting's return proves he should remain with TNA

Last night’s TNA was billed around the debut of Bart Scott, the return of Hulk Hogan and his group “Immortal,” the Karen Angle-Jeff Jarrett wedding, and of all things a special appearance by former “Jersey Shore” cast member Angelina. Other than Hogan taking over TNA, the rest of the show was hard to watch.

All night TNA was teasing that the TNA champion Jeff...

Jets linebacker Bart Scott makes an appearance on

Jets’ linebacker Bart Scott will make his wrestling debut this Thursday night on TNA’s “iMPACT” at 9 p.m.

We all know Scott can easily cut a promo in the ring. We saw good evidence of that in his post-game interview after beating the Patriots in the playoffs. Scott ranted that the Patriots’ defense “couldn’t stop a nose bleed.” He’s no...

I didn’t watch last night’s TNA “Against All Odds” pay per view. And judging from the lack of buzz about the show—which featured a world title change—“odds” are that you didn’t either.

Still, I feel the need to weigh in one piece of news coming out of the show that I think is significant.

The 2010 Steel Cage Year End Awards

2010 should go down as a memorable year in the pro wrestling business for several reasons, both good and bad. We saw some big successes, including the emergence of newcomers including Jack Swagger, The Miz, Sheamus and the members of Nexus. And some big failures, including TNA’s feeble attempt at waging a new Monday night war, and WWE queen Linda McMahon’s loss in her bid for U.S. Senate.

Ex-Pro wrestler catches a thief in Colorado

The title of this blog post had to catch your attention, “Ex-Pro wrestler catches thief.” Don’t get too excited because it’s not Lex Luger or Scott Hall who are taking the law into their own hands.

On TV tonight: Smith vs. Kidd, TNA special ref announced

There's four hours or original wrestling programming on TV tonight. Here's a quick look.

. I mentioned earlier today that WWE Superstars will sometimes surprise you with a fairly marquis match-up and/or storyline development. It looks like tonight is a good example of that. Following their split, former Hart Dynasty partners and childhood friends David Hart Smith and Tyson Kidd do battle...
