Backstage News on Jarrett, TNA Buying Twitter Followers?, More

– Don’t expect to see Mickie James, Gail Kim, Eric young, Chavo Guerrero and Mr. Anderson on this Thursday’s episode of Impact Wrestling. They are booked the same night for a TNA live event in Salem, Virginia.

– For those who didn’t know, several brands purchase some of their Twitter followers. This gives the impression that they are more popular than they really are and serves as a form of advertising. Someone recently did an audit of TNA’s Twitter followers and found that of their 189,000 followers, only 27,639 of them are real and the rest are fake, in the sense that they went and purchased them.

– TNA is still developing the Aces & 8s storyline but it’s said that odds are less than 50% that Jeff Jarrett will end up being the leader. Jarrett is currently only working big shows for AAA in Mexico. He left his TNA duties to focus on Ring Ka King and the proposed Speed Channel project but since nothing has happened with either of those, it’s probably time for him to return soon.

    Question. How do you buy Twitter followers?
    Hell, if TNA wants to pay me, I will follow them.

    Fuck Jarrett!

    Wanna hear my idea? Well, here it is. Samoa Joe as the leader! Give him the role as the leader, (obviously can’t now because creative have him involved with the rivalry) then give him a run with the world title. That would be the perfect way to build Joe back up as a credible heel for the company, seeing that he is nearly meaningless to the company after you fucked up the possibility of Joe Vs Aries 2 at BFG 2012.

    Sometimes, I wish creative would just let me take over for just one day.. Hmm, I wonder how many DISLIKES I can get for this comment..

    Why the hell would you buy Twitter followers? Did no one tell them that they can just make there own Twitter accounts and follow themselves. I mean what tna dont have some pee on working for them that they can have just makin Twitter accounts so they can follow tna. lol but anyway this whole Twitter/Facebook thing is pathetic. I for one can’t wait till this social networking craze is dead. All it does is make stupid people stupider and united which is a dangerous thing.

    Someone did and audit someone! Really so who is someone? Get some facts and names and get back at me. Was this story really worth posting? I don’t think so.

    I dunno what’s more sad, buying Twitter followers or having that less Twitter followers than Hornswoggle.

    Who cares about buying twitter followers heard on the radio this morning lady gaga has 500000 that are fake. Also cant wait to see jarrett back always entertaining to watch.

    Maybe TNA should focus less on buying twitter followers and more on producing a halfway decent product.
