Horrible Injury

This is hilarious. Who, exactly, do they think they are fooling?

Off the topic, Dave Meltzer has a great piece up in today's update about how TNA's reps stunk the joint out on Stephen A. Smith's show last night. A couple of points beyond what Dave made:
Would Mike Tenay and others please stop perpetuating this myth that competition is good for WWE and wrestling in general? Was competition good for the AWA, NWA, and all the small territories in the 1980s? How about the promotional wars in Georgia and in San Francisco in the 1970s? Pro wrestling is largely a zero-sum game. There is a finite audience for the sport in the US and competition only serves to divide it in most cases. In the end, there will be a winner and a loser. Tenay also told a bold faced lie when claiming TNA was breating up behind WWE's necks. For a guy who I respect, he came across terrible last night.
Jarrett briefly mentioned the non-descript X-division as a selling point but never really explained what it was. Smith was hilarious when he said that Gayda clearly was not on steroids. I have no idea if she is or isn't but Dave and everybody else expert on the matter have stated that women in wrestling are no stranger to PED usage.

They're trying to put the genie back in the bottle; WWE doesn't want the newsletters and websites to break news, so they're trying to go back to a 1970s, early 1980s, pre-Hogan, pre-Rock 'n' Wrestling time.

Too bad no one's buying it.

I actually don't mind them claiming a fake injury. On TV, by all means, do that. It's just online they already reported his suspension. They totally can't figure out what they want the website to be.

I didn't see Screamin' A's show, so I can't comment on that. I do tend to disagree, though, that pro wrestling is a zero-sum game. Of course competition doesn't necessarily help, but it did in the 90s (WCW killed itself), and Vince really needs a kick in the ass to get him going again.
