-- TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter announced this afternoon on Twitter the signing of a performer to a new talent contract. Shortly thereafter, "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero commented the following on the social networking site: "Just heard the news. Now THAT....That's Cool!" Many of his followers believed he was alluding to Carlito, as that was the Puerto Rican star's catchphrase during his time in WWE. D'Angelo noted in a follow-up message that his earlier tweet was purely coincidental and that he has no idea as to who was signed. "Whoa! Just got the "News" of Pope's earlier news. That was purely coincidental. For The Record, Pope has NO CLUE as to who was signed," he added. Right.
