TNA Wrestling Turning A Shoot Into A Work


TNA Wrestling Turning A Shoot Into A Work
Written by Richard Gray on Sep 26, 2008 - 10:24:08 AM

TNA Wrestling is turning Kurt Angle's recent shoot comments to The Sun into a work. Below was included in the official Impact preview for this week:

According to multiple sources, Jeff Jarrett is angry over the recent comments made by Kurt Angle about TNA in the UK Sun Newspaper! Rumor has it that Jarrett - as the founder of TNA - will publicly address these controversial comments on Thursday's broadcast on Spike. The question is, with Angle and Jarrett set to battle at Bound For Glory, could all hell break loose between the two TNA superstars on Thursday night?

SmackDown vs. Raw 09 News, Shelly Martinez Auction Pulled, Recently Released WWE Stars

- WNW reader Hamish sent this in... IGN.com has unveiled the long anticipated "mystery mode" that's been hinted at for months since they noted that the "Road to Wrestlemania" was created and the "GM mode" was removed. Here's a link with Greg from IGN.com doing a hands on explanation at this link. On a side note, people on IGN's boards have been speculating on what the Mystery Mode would be and many of them correctly guessed that it would be a season mode without cut-scenes or voice-overs and now that it has been confirmed that's what it is, there's been a mostly huge negative reaction to it.

- WNW reader Brett Burdick sent this in... Hey guys, in case anyone hasn't reported it yet, the Win a Date auction for Shelly Martinez on Ebay has been taken down. Seemed pretty ridiculous it had reached as high as $12,000 at one point with a week to go anyway.

- WNW live events correspondent Devin Cutting reporting... Sean Waltman (aka X-Pac), King V (aka Big Daddy V) and Rob Conway will be appearing at the National Wrestling Alliance event in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 3rd, 2008... Shannon Moore, Rene Dupree, Tammy Sytch (aka Sunny), Steve Corino and Joe E. Legend (aka Just Joe) will be appearing at the World Stars Of Wrestling events in Badajoz, Spain on September 27th, 2008 and Grandola, Portugal on September 28th, 2008.

R-Truth's Stats, CM Punk's Direction, Hardy, Contracts

Does WWE acknowledge other world titles because I was looking at R-Truth's stats on their site and it made no mention of his world title runs in TNA?

WWE does not make mention of TNA title runs. The way that it is looked at in WWE is that TNA does not exist. WWE is hesitant to ever promote the competition which is why I find the Industry News section on the official WWE website rather hilarious.

There have been times when the WWE has done something that really made me scratch my head. But later I realize why it was done. Looking at CM Punk's "path" this last half year, I really wonder. He wins MITB after Hardy is suspended, he goes on a streak of losing clean to a lot of heels, he wins the title out of nowhere, drops it two months later in a match that he wasn't a part of, and is now expected to get a tag team partner and feud with the 2nd Generation Superstars. HUH? What are your thoughts?

I think that it shows that WWE had a lack of confidence in CM Punk as champion. Personally I thought that Punk was a good champion with his crowd reactions remaining strong and the ratings remaining steady. However, it looks to me like WWE wanted to get the World Championship involved in the Jericho vs. Michaels feud because it's been so good. As for Punk's path and how much that it has changed, that just goes to change how frequently things change within WWE creative. Rather than being upset about Punk's run, I am glad that he got pushed for as long as he did. I do not think that he is going to be buried and hopefully he can help further develop Rhodes and DiBiase.

Do you see Jeff Hardy possibly winning the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XXV?

It's a possibility and I think that if Jeff Hardy were to get a WWE Championship run that WrestleMania XXV would be the most likely event where it would happen. I do not see WWE doing a title change at a non-big four pay-per-view, especially to another babyface.

Hey Richard, my question is when a superstar first signs a developmental contract or any other type of contract what is in a contract itself?

This is a broad question but I will try to explain it the best that I can. Most WWE superstars sign their first contract as a developmental deal. Most developmental deals include downside guarantees (money that you are guaranteed) for an amount of $25,000 a year. The deals include several types of bonuses such as title bonuses, TV bonuses, etc. WWE contracts stipulate that although the worker is an independent contractor they must remain exclusive to them. That, of course, prevents talent under a WWE contract from working with another company. So basically no matter what type of contract a WWE worker is under it includes a downside guarantee, an exclusivity stipulation, and several different bonuses. Most contracts written for main event talent include non-compete clauses which prevents talent from working elsewhere for a specified amount of days after the agreement comes to an end.
