Zema Ion Addresses Recent Life Struggles, TNA Stars Predict “Breaking Bad” Finale, Meet ODB

– In June, inactive TNA Wrestling star Zema Ion’s fundraising campaign following an emergency appendectomy was futile as it failed to raise the needed $30,000 he was hoping to raise—it only raised $6,648, which he did not receive. Ion recently appeared on The Pain Clinic (listen here) and revealed that he became depressed after being informed he may have cancer, not to mention that he owes thousands of dollars in medical bills. He dubbed the ordeal “a really dark time,” but says he’s feeling better these days.

– In the latest edition of the “Impact Wrestling Podcast” hosted by Jeremy Borash and Christy Hemme, Breaking Bad fans Bad Influence, Mike Tenay, Taz, Jeff Hardy and Gunner offer their predictions on tomorrow night’s season finale on AMC.


– According to, TNA Women’s Champion ODB will participate in an autograph signing at Wrestling Universe 34-29 Francis Lewis Blvd. Flushing, New York, on Sunday, October 6 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

    Ok well thanks for clearing that up. I guess its a benefit in an emergency situation, but the US operates in the same way in an emergency in that you get treatment, but it isn’t free lol. Guess I gotta move up north now lol.

    Transplants are a bit of a special case, since you actually need an available donor organ. A friend of mine was on the list for a donor liver. (I should add that his original was failing due to a medical condition and not alcohol.) but when a donor organ came free, they had an ambulance at his house in an hour, and 8 hours later he was in a hospital 150 miles away, put to sleep, and was having his transplant. So transplants are a bit of a special case, but when they are in a position to operate, they move quickly.

    When you are waiting in A&E, don’t feel jealous for those taken straight in for treatment. Feel sorry for them. It means they are sicker than you are. Waiting just means you aren’t expected to die straight away.

    Really? Because I’ve heard of people waiting for transplants (that they need to live) for months and months.

  • Try getting educated about something before speaking on it. You don’t have to “wait 6 months” for emergency procedures. That’s only for elective (non-neccisary/non life-threatening) stuff.

    Yea its can cost over a thousand dollars just for a few stitches so 30,000 for a surgery is defiantly some bs but sadly not even a little surprising.

  • ddfindl

    Yeah if you wait for it for 6 months

    Must suck for Americans not having universal healthcare.

    $30,000 for an emergency appendectomy? Jesus christ. Glad we get them done for free here.
