Ring Rap With Matt: Big TNA Firings, McMahons In Politics, and More!

Matthew HesterSenior Writer ISeptember 16, 2009

Hello, everyone. As always, I would like to thank you for spending some time with me today.


I would like to welcome all of you to another edition of Ring Rap. Where I bring you all the latest going ons in the wrestling world. We have a lot to cover in today’s edition, so sit back relax and enjoy the show.


The Great Khali going on the shelf?


It is being reported that the Great Khali’s knee is in bad shape and will need surgery. They will be playing the angle out where Kane injures it on the metal steps. There is no time frame the “Punjabi Playboy”.


If this were indeed true then this would be a big set back. Whether you like him or not, he has certainly done a good job turning the fans his way. How much this could set his character back? Only time will tell.


The Hulkamaina tour is beefing up.


As most know by know Hulk Hogan will be launching a tour in Australia. It has already been reported that Ric Flair will be joining the tour also. From whets being said, it looks like this tour is really shaping up.


It is said that Umaga, Shannon Moore, Val Venis, and Mr. Kennedy, are on board. In what capacity will they be involved? Know one knows for sure just yet. It is also worth noting that RVD, and X-Pac, may also join.


While the Hogan vs. Flair match up doesn’t do much for me. It does seem like a solid card of wrestlers so far. It should be interesting to see whom else jumps on board.


There are a lot of big names out there that aren’t signed to anyone. Hogan and Flair aside, this could really shape up to be something special. I just hope that they televise some of this on PPV.


TNA releases to more big names.


TNA has recently released BG James and Jim Cornette. This is all stemming over issues they have had with Vince Russo. It seems they weren’t seeing eye-to-eye on how things were ran.


This should come to surprise to anyone, as most would agree that Russo has been nothing but a cancer since leaving the WWE. It is sad that they would choose to let a guy like Cornette go.


Cornette was not only a key guy with production, but he was also a good guy in the locker. He brought a wealth of knowledge and encouragement for the guys on the roster.

I’m sure he will be fine though, whether he decides to stay in the business or not. I am more curious to see what happens to BG James. I’m sure if he wanted to he could travel the Indies.


I am more inclined to believe that he will look for a bigger payday though. Maybe he could join up on the Hulkamanina tour? Or just maybe he could head back to the WWE. I’m sure if he were added to the DX reunion it would beef things up.


Linda McMahon has officially joined the Senate Race


It now is official that Linda McMahon has joined the Senate race. It has been officially announced on the WWE.com web site.


I wish her the best of luck.


Well that is all for me today.


Thank you again for joining me today.


As always, have a great day and God bless.
