Hogan-Bischoff-SpikeTV Backstage News, TNA To Stream PPVs, Kurt Angle

» Kurt Angle's name came up in a federal trial of nine men associated with Applied Pharmacy in Mobile, Alabama that was going on last week. Assistant US Attorney Donna Dobbins brought up Angle and Jose Canseco as clients of the pharmacy in her closing arguments on Tuesday. She said, "Each one of them (the defendants) participated in this conspiracy. They operated a steroid mill, and they would dispense anabolic steroids to anyone whose credit card was good."
» Starting with tomorrow night's Against All Odds pay-per-view, TNA will be putting all pay-per-view events live on the company's web site (TNAWrestling.com) at a cost of $14.95. Does that even really matter with the illegal stream websites? I know WWE goes after the stream sites but I'm pretty sure TNA doesn't do anything about them. Maybe I'm wrong though.
» Spike TV played a big part in TNA bringing Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff in. Spike reportedly earmarked money and helped out with the contracts as they have done in the past with other major TNA signings such as Mick Foley and Sting. Kevin Kay and Brian Diamond of Spike are long-term looking to use Hulk Hogan to challenge RAW on Monday nights.
