– TNA will tape the rest of the July 1st Impact Wrestling episode tonight from Orlando with Ethan Carter III vs. Kurt Angle for the World Heavyweight Title and The Wolves vs. Austin Aries and Bobby Roode for the vacant TNA Tag Team Titles.
– Regarding The Wolves vs. The Dirty Heels, TNA is advertising that match as a 30-minute Iron Man Match.
– Vince Russo revealed in his latest CSR blog that he recently contacted top TNA officials to offer his services free of charge until September. Here’s part of what Russo wrote:
“Feeling the TNA situation, I felt driven to do something about it, rather than to just sit behind my computer and let it die a slow death. So I wrote an e-mail to Dixie, John and Billy Corgan and I offered my services to them—FREE OF CHARGE—in an effort to help them from now until September. I told them that if they weren’t interested that there was no need to reply to my e-mail, that I would know in my heart-of-hearts that I did all I possibly could do on my part to help the situation. The only one who responded to my e-mail was Billy—who I understood wasn’t in a position to do anything.
Now, you can say whatever it is you want about Vince Russo–he put the belt on himself, he put the belt on David Arquette, he put Judy Bagwell on a forklift, he killed WCW, he was nothing without Vince McMahon’s filter . . . yada, yada, yada. I’m cool with all that, as long as you add that he helped bring TNA to over 2 million viewers on Spike TV when he “had the book” less than five years ago. If you’re going to bring up all those others things solely based on “opinion”, then it would only be fair that you brought up the “facts”, or the “numbers”. Unfortunately in wrestling–nobody does that any more. Carter/Gaburick are not interested in my FREE SERVICES, based on one having to admit a mistake, and the other simply doing what execs do in wrestling—protecting their spots. Not accepting the services of the guy who helped creatively bring you to your greatest heights is just simply . . . sad.”
