Two TNA stars will be in action at tonight’s Bellator MMA event, which will air live on Spike TV at 8pm ET. Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal will face Dustin Jacoby in a light heavyweight bout, while TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley will battle Josh Burns in a heavyweight fight.
We noted earlier that the Associated Press has an article about Lashley and King Mo appearing at the show. In the story, King Mo said that he will wrestle more if he has time.
“I’m focused on fighting right now. But if I have time to wrestle, I will,” Lawal said. “Pro wrestling is easier on the body, man. Pro wrestling is more fun.”
When noting that Bellator had signed several former UFC big name stars, the article stated that TNA “flopped” when it tried to become more like WWE and signed several former WWE stars:
TNA morphed into WWE-lite for a spell, believing signing castoffs like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Mick Foley and Kevin Nash would boost ratings and give the second-tier organization some needed credibility. It’s now at a crossroads with its TV deal in limbo and no domestic live events scheduled after Sep. 19.
