    Does anyone what to take a guess who is getting the ax from TNA next week?

    • Matthew DeAngelo

      I was going to say Angle (as a storyline to cover up his rehab) but TNA flat out said he’s going to rehab (which was dumb on their part), now my guess is Sting is leaving. His contracts up anyway and TNA doesn’t have the money to pay him

      • Louisa Baton

        I think it’s someone from the other side and not the MMA person

        • Matthew DeAngelo

          If it is, it’s Knox. With Gallows gone Ace’s n 8′s has no big guys

  • Matthew DeAngelo

    Refunds just because John Cena missed an event, that’s sad. I’m sure if (let’s say Ryback, I dunno why I picked him LOL), anyway if he missed 2 shows in a row he’d get punished. But not Cena, he’s apparently the golden guy in WWE

  • Ralph Ramos

    I don’t know whose next to be axed, but I do know that Joseph Parks isn’t exactly impressive.

  • Joe Musolf

    Maybe Cena pulled a Benoit and that’s why he missed those two events?
