ROH, TNA, World Class & American Gladiators News

ROH has been removed from PPV listings in Canada due to low buys. One major national PPV carrier reported just three-dozen buys. TNA has managed to get just a few hundred for some recent PPVs, since WWE and UFC are the only promotions making any headway in the Canadian PPV market.

The rumoured TNA Knockouts spin-off show is nothing but an idea at present and will not be happening anytime soon. TNA is wary of over-exposing the women they have and ruining a good thing by having to water it down with extra workers and TV time.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince Russo is currently scripting about 90% of Impact, with Dutch Mantel’s contributions being mainly the women’s segments.

Chris Masters and Matt Morgan have been contacted by the American Gladiators producers about becoming new members of the team.

Apparently, Scott Hall, Jake Roberts and Ron Simmons are all attending the same rehab facility in Atlanta. Yikes.

Brian Harrison, producer of the Heroes of World Class documentary, is in talks with Kevin Von Erich about making a feature film of the Von Erichs.

Dwayne Johnson’s next and biggest movie to date, Witch Mountain, begins production in Las Vegas next month. He has said he is trying to get Brock Lesnar a cameo role in it.
