Flair gone from TNA roster page:
Wrestling legend Ric Flair has now been removed from the TNA Website roster page.
It was reported earlier this week that the WWE Hall of Famer has been telling people that he’s ready for a return to WWE. It’s believed that the company wanted him to show up a few weeks ago when Raw was in his home town, but the ongoing lawsuit between the company and TNA meant it wasn’t wise.
The removal of Flair’s profile suggests things are moving forward.
November 28, 2012, NXT Results:
This week’s UK airing of WWE NXT saw Team Hell No make a special appearance, defeating Johnny Curtis (Fandango) & Michael Michael McGillicutty in the main event.
Also on the show:
Leo Kruger def. Trent Barreta, who was injured backstage (possibly by Kruger) last week and wrestled with taped ribs.
Xavier Woods (former Consequences Creed) def. Memo Montenegro (younger brother of Alberto Del Rio).
Audrey Marie (Mickie James country gimmick) def. Emma (new rookie from Australia).
Jinder Mahal attacked NXT Champion and Shield member Seth Rollins.
NXT star released after run in with law:
NXT rookie Kenneth Cameron has been released from his WWE developmental contract after being charged with battery of a law enforcement officer and disorderly intoxication.
Cameron, who was one half of the much-hyped Ascension tag team was arrested late Thanksgiving Eve in St. Petersburg, Florida, after drunkenly lunging at a cop who was trying to calm him down.
He was taken into custody at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and released on $5,000 bail for the battery charge and $100 for the disorderly intoxication charge.
The 26 year old British wrestler was arrested for DUI in January last year. Although WWE let the first incident slide, this latest arrest has cost him his job.
The Ascension were on the verge of a main roster promotion, so it will be interesting to see if they repackage his partner Conor O’Brian.
Kharma Interview highlights:
Kharma aka Amazing Kong — real name Kia Stevens — breaks her silence on her WWE release for the very first time speaking exclusively to Diva-Dirt.com about her release, her time in WWE, her brief but boundary breaking run there, and much more.
Kharma talks about joining the company, which she describes as her dream job, what it was like breaking the mold for Divas, being given a huge platform for her debut, leaving after just one month, competing in the Royal Rumble match, and her departure.
The former Knockouts Champion also discusses her journey to lose weight, pitching a reality series, her return to wrestling at SHINE 5, the current women’s wrestling scene and whether she’s had talks with TNA about returning.
Here are some highlights…
On being offered a job by WWE in December 2010:
“I did not see it coming. I was actually about 14 days away from announcing my retirement in wrestling. I got a call. I’ll never forget, I was sick with a cold and I got a call from Tommy Dreamer and he asked if he could give my number to John Laurinaitis. And I said, ‘Um, yeah!’ Five minutes later I got a call from John Laurinaitis who spoke with me and offered me a position at WWE. I don’t think I closed my mouth for a good 20 days.”
On her WWE release:
“Sometimes things aren’t moving along as quickly as they need to be, and some things weren’t progressing as quickly as they should have been. I think the release was actually a good idea and very appropriate. WWE, the world knows they don’t just hire anyone. If they hire you, they’re going to invest in you. They’re going to apply any and every resource they have for anything that you’re going through, so having said that, again, the timing just was there. My release was, in my opinion, appropriate.”
On whether she would return to TNA:
“I do appreciate the opportunities I was given by TNA, Dixie Carter and Terry Taylor. I appreciate my time there, it was good… until it wasn’t. [Laughs] No [communication] whatsoever with them. I’m very grateful, they’re the ones that introduced me to the US market, but that time is gone.”
