Former TNA Wrestler Returning to the Company

Posted by Steve Carrier on Thursday, September 12th, 2013


Elijah Burke, aka The Pope D’Angelo, made an appearance at last night’s OVW television tapings. Burke wrestled and defeated Flash Flanagan to win the OVW TV title.

Angelo first worked with TNA back in May ’09. He later announced that his contract expired earlier this year in January. As of this writing there is no word yet on whether this means the Pope’s return to TNA is imminent.

    Don’t title your post saying he’s coming back if you say in the story there’s no word if he’s coming back…

    • Shawn S. Lealos

      OVW is TNA’s training territory. He won the TV title there. That means he has already come back to the company, just not to the main brand.

      • Mike Arienti

        Not entirely accurate. There have been plenty of non-WWE and non-TNA talent who have wrestled in OVW while not under contract to the main brand.

    Why come back to a company that’s going under?
