    Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin (collectively known as the Motor City Machine Guns) are set to become free agents in March of 2009.

    Right now, the duo is basically in the dog house with TNA management. Despite their massive popularity, the Motor City Machine Guns have not been pushed.

    It'll be easy to determine what TNA plans to do with the two based on how much of a push they receive in the upcoming months.

    If the high flying tag team were to become free agents, it's safe to assume that WWE would be interested in signing them. The tag team division in WWE isn't a priority, but it would be foolish for WWE to pass up on signing two talented performers like Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin.


    sonjay dutt Expiring Contract
    Sonjay Dutt's contract with TNA is set to expire in March. Pretty sure he'll sign another deal with TNA instead of jumping to WWE.

    source: the wrestling observer

    The Peterborough Examiner has a story on hometown wrestler Robert Roode. Roode jokingly said that unlike some wrestling gimmicks, the Beer Money team is the opposite of how they are in real life. Roode said James Storm is the one always looking at money and finances and he's the one who just wants to drink beer. "That's the great thing about professional wrestling -- you can pretend to be someone you're not and have fun with it," Roode said. As reported earlier, a number of TNA contracts are coming up next March - ten in all - and Robert Roode's is one of them. "My contract comes up in the spring of 2009 so it will be interesting to see what happens," Roode said. "I'm really happy with TNA, it's a great wrestling company and I'm proud to be a part of it. Hopefully I can be around a lot longer." As Bill Behrens reported on the Voice of Wrestling two weeks ago, several talents, including Robert Roode, have been eyed by WWE officials for possible contract offers when their deals are up this March.

    I can see MCMG going back to ROH and the indies and seeing both Sonjay and Roode staying.

    LAX Walks Out of TNA iMPACT! Tapings

    At the TNA iMPACT! tapings, LAX quietly filmed their segment and then walked out of the building immediately afterwards. Homicide and Hernandez are both upset with TNA's plan to split them up and turn them into singles wrestlers. Will this cause Hernandez to leave for WWE in December?

    Somehow, I don't think Sabin and Shelly will go anywhere by March. I think they should leave TNA when their contracts expire. They deserve better than what TNA has given them.

    And it sucks about LAX. I like them as a tag team. But now, it looks like TNA will break up yet another tag team.

    The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE has had internal discussions about the possible return of former champion Kurt Angle. There has been discussion in the direction of Angle returning and working the limited schedule like Shawn Michaels works, as it is unrealistic to expect Angle to work a full-time road schedule. There has been talks about scenarios for him to return to the company when his TNA contract expires in September.

    Wow.

    More news:

    The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE creative has begun brainstorming return scenarios in the event that Kurt Angle decides to return to the company when his TNA contract expires next September. It should be noted that these meetings are simply preliminary, and that no concrete decisions have been made by Kurt Angle in any way. WWE officials were surprised when Angle recently did a shoot interview speaking highly of WWE and even Triple H, which gave them the feeling that he may be more willing to return to the company than people had originally thought.

    If Angle does return to WWE, we would most likely see him work a lighter schedule similar to what Shawn Michaels works, where he would appear on TV tapings, PPV's and the occasional house show. It should be noted that although WWE would most likely bring Kurt back into the company if he wanted to return, there are those backstage who feel bringing him back would be a mistake as his departure to TNA two years ago was marred by controversy and his physical condition was a serious concern.

    Jason Powell of Prowrestling.net is reporting that Kurt Angle has been telling people close to him that he is very seriously contemplating a return to WWE. He is reportedly frustrated with the creative direction that both he and TNA are following, and appears to have little faith in Jeff Jarrett's lead. Angle's current contract is set to expire next fall, and at this point he would ditch his job with TNA and return to WWE if he could. Angle has spoken out about his concerns, most notably in the interview he did in the UK which sparked the TV feud between him and Jeff Jarrett.

    Should Angle decide that he ultimately wants to return to WWE, it appears they would welcome him back despite anything negative he has said about working there in the past. Vince McMahon has a long standing forgive and forget policy when it's good for business, and in the case of Kurt Angle there would be no hesitation on WWE's part to bring him back into the company. He would most likely work a reduced schedule akin to The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels, which would alleviate the issues he had with WWE prior to his TNA debut.

    Conspicuous by his absence at last night's Destination X pay-per-view was Kip James as he was not in the corner of The Beautiful People. According to a TNA source, there is some concern that the company will not be renewing his contract as he's said to be on the bubble. His biggest supporter in the company is longtime friend BG James, who works as an agent backstage.

    Jacqueline also didn't work last night's Destination X pay-per-view as she was not in the corner of Beer Money, Inc. for their match against Team 3D. However, the former WWE Women's Champion did appear at some house show events over the weekend. Her status with the company remains unclear, although we haven't heard anything about the company letting her go. However, several people within the company have questioned her spot with the company considering that a number of wrestler contracts were not renewed. On the other hand, she's known Jeff Jarrett for years, which should help her cause for employment.

    Don't let Jackie go. Please.

    In reality, Foley never was much of a WWE loyal guy like HBK, Triple H and Undertaker. I'm sure someday he'll be on the WWE Hall Of Fame when he either retires, dies or TNA folds.

    He's not overrated. He's just not a good wrestler. He's a bump magnet.

    I spoke to a source in TNA today who has provided more details on the news of Sheik Abdul Bashir, aka Shawn Daivari, leaving TNA Wrestling.

    According to the source, Daivari did in fact ask for his release from TNA, as other reports are suggesting, as he has been frustrated with the direction of his character for quite some time now. It appears that when Jeff Jarrett took his hiatus from TNA and was pushed out of his creative position in the company, things started to go downhill for Daivari.

    At the time, The World Elite was intended to be a big faction up against The Main Event Mafia, however the group's push was halted when Jarrett was sent home by Dixie Carter. Daivari has apparently been rattling the TNA cage, so to speak, for quite some time now, and has expressed his frustration to Vince Russo and TNA higher ups on a number of occasions.

    As far as last night's PPV was concerned, the planned finish for the feast or fired match was as we reported several days ago, and that was to have Cody Deaner draw the pink slip and be fired from TNA. However, Daivari personally asked for the match finish to be changed so that he would be the one to draw the pink slip, and it would be a way for TNA to write his character off TV as he had wanted to leave the company.

    At this point it's being said that Daivari's options are Japan and Mexico as potential places to end up working. From what we know, he also left the WWE on good terms, so he could always end up back there if there's interest on their end.
