Former WWE and impact Wrestling talent Victoria [Tara in TNA], noted on twitter which company forgot to renew her contract. There was speculation that WWE had forgot to renew her contract, but it turns out to be TNA [at that time]/ Impact Wrestling.
See her tweet below:
Newly crowned Global Force Wrestling Champion, Alberto El Patron spoke to Justin Barraso of Extra Mustard’s Sports Illustrated and addressed multiple topics.
Here are the highlights:
Signing with Impact Wrestling & competing against guys like Bobby Lashley:
“I am so happy to work with Impact Wrestling. I have nothing but respect for them, unlike another company, who I don’t watch, I don’t follow and I don’t even look at their tweets. I have some real beef with some of the people in that company.”
“It’s rare to find someone with Bobby’s size and athleticism. He’s a fantastic performer and he is such a huge guy. He has a great psychology in the ring, the chemistry was there the moment the bell ring rang and it was a great experience working with him. I am very happy to work with Impact and talent like Bobby”
“I am excited to be with Impact Wrestling because I get to work with talents like EC3 again. I had the opportunity to be with him in FCW when we were in developmental in that other company. We worked together once when they were trying to make him a part of the main roster in WWE, then he went to Impact Wrestling and made a name for himself. He’s a good guy with a lot of talent and he’s fantastic on the microphone. The entire office went crazy for our promos and then it was easy in the ring. I’m happy to see the young talent is taking the torch to continue doing good stuff in the business.”
“I will stay in Impact as long as the fans want me there. They were so happy to have me there and treated me with a lot of respect. The office, talent, and staff are treated with respect by everyone, regardless of your position in the business.”
Alberto El Patron’s plans moving forward:
“I’m planning on retiring in two years. I’m still good to go and I don’t have any major injuries, but I always promised myself I would leave on top. I started wrestling when I was eight years old with the amateur wrestling team in Mexico. I love the business with all my heart, but my body is getting tired. It’s all the travel, I’m going to do my last two years with Impact Wrestling. I’ll continue to do some indie shows here and there and I have a lot of projects outside the business. I am going to continue running Combate Americas, the MMA company that I work for and I am going to start a soap opera in Mexico in two months. We also have a reality show produced by Combate Americas that was sold to Amazon. People should be able to see that in three more months.”
“I opened a restaurant and bar in San Antonio in November. We are the place to go on Fridays and Saturdays, God is blessing me, I’m getting married pretty soon. We changed the date twice, but we’re getting married in the last week of July, so I am keeping very busy outside the business.”
How WWE is hurting the wrestling business:
“It’s horrible for the business, but you cannot blame that company. That company is doing what a company is supposed to do, monopolize, get the best talent from everywhere, and try to destroy the competition. They’re smart, you cannot blame them. The problem is with the talent, just going there to be there with the promise of being on TV, but not even charging good money for your work, is not good business. We as wrestlers need to remember that this is a business. We started because we love the business and we stay in it because we have a lot of passion for it, but you have to be rewarded for your work. I was there and saw some of the main guys, new top heels and new top babyfaces, get paid nothing for their matches. The new talent joining NXT is taking pay cuts to work there, sometimes even 80 percent less, you need to be rewarded for your work in a business.”

WWE superstar Nikki Bella spoke with E! News to promote the new season for Total Bellas. During the interview she spoke about her sister Brie Bella and how she had such a difficult time giving birth.
Here’s what she had to say:
“She tried to go natural and it was like eight or 10 hours into it had to get an epidural and then in the end had to get a C-section. Her abs were too tight, go figure, Leave it to the WWE Superstar, abs too tight.”
“I mean, it’s definitely a struggle for women in the beginning and it should be. I saw what they put their bodies through and oh my gosh, I give all the moms in the world so much credit. That is not easy, labor. I think it takes minimum a week to heal from that.”
WWE talent Kane who is now in the political running for Mayor of Knox County, Tennessee was a recent guest on Edge and Christians Podcast of Awesomeness. Kane would talk on several subjects, but when Seth Rollins came up, he had this to say:
“I am a huge Seth Rollins fan. Anyone that has ever been in the ring with Seth… he really is the second-coming of Shawn Michaels, he is that good.”
