— The news of Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick appearing for TNA has been reported on several gossip outlets today. TNA has already accomplished their main goal with this – major media attention for the promotion. Expect lots more media in the coming days.
— ESPN.com has picked up the story on New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott appearing at the TNA iMPACT! tapings in North Carolina tonight. Numerous media outlets are also picking this one up. It’s a good media day for TNA to say the least.
— During the interview with Peter Rosenberg we posted this morning here on the website, Hulk Hogan criticized WWE’s handling of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s return to WWE last week on RAW. “They’ve spent so much time building John Cena up. There’s a way to really build somebody up, but all of a sudden within three or four seconds, he had the whole arena screaming that Cena sucks,” Hogan said. “Sometimes I don’t understand the philosophy. John Cena is going to be there all the time. Even though The Rock said he’s back, he’s only back for one day. He’s not going to be there wrestling every single day like John Cena is, really holding it down and really keeping it real. All that stuff is scripted. They had Stephanie McMahon and the writers telling The Rock exactly what to say. I just didn’t understand why they would want to destroy Cena so quickly.” Hogan said he has undergone eight back surgeries in the past year. Though he wears a brace, he’s now pain free… or so he claims. He noted that he will be on hand for tonight’s iMPACT! taping in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The interview is available here on the website. It’s several posts under this report.
