Notes From The Observer: Lashley to Get Big Push

July 29, 2009

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Bobby Lashley is the next TNA star to get the enormous “Joe/Sting/Angle” level push.

The goal is to build Lashley up and then really go hard on the Lesnar challenge. He’ll be pushed as both a wrestling and MMA star. He was quiet backstage. The jury was out on him because of the feeling he was pushed to the moon in WWE and really never got out of the Earth’s atmosphere.

The problem with Lashley has been his inability to get over to the level of his push. In the WWE, he was pushed like a top guy, even getting the coveted spot at Wrestlemania with Donald Trump, but never got over much above the midcard level. So far, the fans in TNA have responded to him like he was a legitimate star. But the reaction of the hardcore TNA fans never quite seems to match the reaction of the population at large.

There is talk of using him to do a grandstand challenge of Brock Lesnar. That would be interesting television, especially as both TNA and UFC are on SPIKE.

Exclusive interview with The Sun

Finally, would you ever consider a jump ship to another company?

No, I’d not jump ship, this is the place to be, nowhere comes close and I’m happy here. We don’t really have any competition and if you want to be a top class professional wrestler in the US you have to be working for the WWE.

TNA announcer shakeup?

July 23, 2009

Mike Tenay and Don West, the current play-by-play and color announcers for TNA, are said to be very worried about Taz’s new contract with TNA. Taz, who debuted for TNA at this past weekend’s pay per view, has been brought in as Samoa Joe’s manager, but there have been backstage whispers that it is only a matter of time before either Tenay or West are let go and Taz is moved into that spot.

Taz worked as an announcer in the WWF, most memorably on their Smackdown brand with Michael Cole, following his retirement from performing in the ring.
