With all the talk of low mid card guys and the women wanting to leave tna, I guess this makes sense.

He just seems like a moaning and speculative prick to be honest. I made it a quarter through the article before fucking it off.

The article basically says wrestling has a tendancy to treat wrestlers like shit and that there is no union and they have to pay their own way. I never got to the part where he begins talking about the new revelation that bears shit in the woods.

Mind you, I did read the part where he gave TNA shit for not paying for the injuries Konnan has accumulated over the past 20 years. Also, he seemed to start every sentence with "MELTZER SAYS..." or similar. And his name is possibly Steve Bruce.

Konnan came to TNA with a degenerative hip. He was a broken down mess in WCW. Konnan's shoot interview has the best quote when he says "I had to go drug dealing to pay my bills" and when Jim Cornette defends him by saying its hard to save money in wrestling Konnan says "No, I still have my fortune, but why should I have to spend that?" He's a fucking mentalist! Just dip into your bank account you nutter!

The guy's been collating information on this for years now, and he's got some really interesting stuff to say. His article last year on the TNA Knockouts was interesting, their struggles to get any decent pay. But everything is spun as a conspiracy, which undermines his arguments. The Knockouts is a difficult one, as it's a women' segment in general that gets the rating, rather than any specific lady. The audience likes a bit of tit and ass to fap to, basically. TNA knows this, and is pretty happy to keep a turnover of beautiful ass going rather than raise pay. The rest of it... well, it's the business. Some promoter needs to step up and change the way things are done, but it's really for the leading WWE to do that, rather than the smaller fed.

True, but EY can buy a second-hand Micra whereas Flair can't afford a skateboard.

Alright then, Triple H can pork the bosses daughter while Chris Masters can only put the masterlock on his old fella and fantasise about it.

It's still not fair.

They've done this article at least 12 times now. The best one was when they spent half the article calling TNA sexist pigs, and finished it by saying that it wasn't sexism and the undercard males were treated exactly the same. Here's the topic for that one http://ukff.com/inde...pic=122338&st=0



I'd imagine my heroic deconstruction of that "article" will hold true for this one as well. I'm not reading it.



What's their problem with TNA anyway?.

Saying that, poor Brian Kendrick is having such a rough time he's had to go on the Price Is Right to make a few quid.
