MMA Fighter to TNA, Ex-WWE Stars Interested In TNA?, Tonight’s Impact, Attendance, BFG

– Matches for tonight’s TNA Impact Wrestling include Velvet Sky vs. Brooke Tessmacher, Matt Morgan vs. Crimson, Zema Ion vs. Austin Aries, Robbie E. vs. Devon plus four-way action with Rob Van Dam vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Mr. Anderson vs. Bobby Roode in the main event.

– Hulk Hogan recently told The New York Post that former WWE stars Chris Masters and John Morrison have been trying to get work with TNA.

– The TNA live event in Ontario, California on May 4th drew 1,000 fans. Ticket sales were helped by local star Tara, who did local media and asked for 60 tickets for friends. She ended up defeating Winter in a short match. The May 6th show in Visalia, CA drew 500 fans.

– As of now, TNA’s June Slammiversary pay-per-view from Arlington, Texas is the last TNA pay-per-view or TV show outside of Orlando until 2013. Because TNA can’t make money on a live gate, even this year’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view will be held at the Impact Zone.

– reports that MMA fighter Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal will be signing with both TNA and Bellator Fighting Championships in the near future. The former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion will likely be performing for both TNA and Bellator MMA. Lawal is currently recovering from knee surgery and a serious battle with staph infection.

Lawal had previously expressed interest in a career with WWE.

    so is tna trying to copy wwe by bringing in mma fighters on the screen? morrison would be a good fit in tna, Masters is not so great so he would be an awesome world champion in tna,

  • The Deadman

    TNA sucks balls

  • philly655

    except in PR i guess huh?

  • Jason

    Yeah like it is so easy to just get a job in this business. TNA much like WWE is not an easy place to get work for.

  • DJK

    I agree with Nick. If Morrison wanted to work for TNA he would already be there.

  • poko

    I don’t know either way, and I’m not going to act like I know. Call me crazy.

    I think either guy could be an asset, but it depends on how they package them. Masters needs a gimmick to make him interesting, and Morrison needs a new gimmick. Morrison is also much more dynamic as a heel. He could have some damn good matches with Aries or Styles, kind of like he did with Punk in ECW.

    Because Hogan said it, I don’t believe it. This is the same guy who allegedly talked about how Brian Knobs sold out MSG.

  • CC

    I could post a TNA email address and pretend its mine as well.

  • Jason

    I have a few times, I posted my TNA email address.

  • SpudimusPrime89

    And you have yet to prove your source, Jason.

  • Jason

    And after B4G is said to be on the Road from a real source via TNA wrestling we will all know it is you and people like you who are on the bad shit.

  • ChrisDV

    Whatever it is, it’s obviously nothing compared to what you’re on, Jason.

  • Jason

    Oh B4G will be on the road this year. WTF are the writers on these dirt sheets smoking?

  • nick

    Hogan just wants to create positive if morrison wanted to get work with tna, he would be in that locker room in minutes. If morrison really was trying to get into tna, he’d be there. tna would be lucky to have him. and that fake jason is so funny!

  • Shawn

    Hulk is such a liar. No chance Morrison wants to, let alone does, sign with TNA. Ridiculous!

  • Jason L

    I must say THAT Jason (who obviously isn’t the TNA mark) is frickin hilarious.

  • Eric Nixon

    Morrison could be a star in TNA. Masters, on the other hand, will just blend in as a smaller Rob Terry.

  • zach

    cant make money on a live gate because they keep going to bad markets. Go to NYC and get 2500+ in the grand ballroom easy

  • gerg357

    omg thats funnny as shittt

    both of these guys are relatively young and have something to offer

  • adam

    I could see masters coming in and working for tna….John morrison on the other hand if he goes back to wrestling i would think he would return to the wwe. Unless tna hires melina as well which would be a HUGE mistake.
