Though many may call it a bad thing that TNA is just signing former WWE developmental talent think of like this TNA may have seen something in the person talent wise that WWE didn't and thereby giving talent another shot. However, this is just about a former WWE talent in it's about a former TNA talent making spot appearance on NXT last night. Now you might say well if it was just spot appearance that means he isn't coming back that's not always true as WWE has actually signed talent who were well job guys to developmental contracts cause they thought they had potential.
This former TNA that made the spot appearance and likely will not be signed is former X-division member and office employee Jesse Sorensen. Yes!! Jesse at one point actually worked in TNA's office after suffering a severe neck injury that many thought end career while under contract with the company. So it was basically like Corey Graves getting job as color commentator after being forced to retire due to the amount of concussions he has had in his career. In all honesty I was never a fan of Jesse and I don't see him getting signed by WWE because I think he is to much of a project with little upside.
The former WWE employee and former developmental talent that debut on Impact last night was former Straight Edge Society member Serna. Serna was one of CM Punk's followers in the Straight Edge Society back in 2009 - 2010 before Serna was let go from the company in either 2010 or 2011. Not long after she got let go from WWE she suffered a serve back injury and actually retired from the ring so her appearance on TNA is extremely surprising as it means she was able to recover to 100%. Also Serna was actually one of the last talents promoted from FCW which the name of WWE developmental before they switch to NXT.
However, due to the fact that WWE has only had 2 different working agreements in the last 30 years (one with ECW & AAA) Vince doesn't seem like his ego would let him go through with a working agreement involving any company due to how rare the working agreements with other companies have been over the years. But, after Triple H takes over things will be different and this agreement proves it.
As of a few days ago New Japan actually announced that they have signed into a working agreement with NXT, and not with the WWE. If this Jushin Liger is another step toward Hunter's vision for the future then I for one can say that I am excited for the future and what time brings for us following the change in power. Jushin Liger for the first time ever in a WWE ring on August 22nd live from the Barclay Center.
For months the WWE Divas division has been extremely weak and terribly repetitive with the same 5 divas working every single and usually seeing the same outcome every week. It was so irritating and frustrating that a lot of fans and even some divas on the main roster began to question how the direction for divas in the suppose "developmental" could be better then the direction on the main roster. That all changed tonight as the Future arrived on Monday Night Raw last night live from Atlanta. When Stephanie McMahon came out and declared a Divas revolution was going to take place and it starts tonight and she proceeded to introduce those who will save the Divas division. Stephanie would introduce Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and NXT Women's Champion "The Boss" Sasha Banks. The roof was blown off the arena tonight when all three of these women made their Raw debuts.
For the first time in quite a very long time a WWE divas segment actually garnered a "This is Awesome" not once but twice from the crowd which is incredible. I will honestly tell you that I had goose bumps up and down my spine just hearing the crowd and sitting there and watching what was happening on my TV screen. Much like the rest of the WWE roster the divas division had become stale due to lack of depth within the division, but now fresh faces have arrived and change is finally here. Just so long as certain members of WWE's management team stay away from the division things will change for the better and the potentials of the divas on the main roster will be realized and not just that of well Nikki Bella.
Tonight we caught a glimpse of the future of the WWE and I have to say if tonight's Divas segment is even half of what the future holds for the WWE then things will be changing for the better soon just you wait. If tonight is Stephanie & Triple H's vision of the future then not only is the future very bright for the WWE, I can also say that I am genuinely extremely excited to see the future of WWE. It's about damn time that the Divas are being given a real chance to hang in the WWE Let the Future Begin!!!
Now though some of you may not be aware a few weeks ago Samoa Joe actually competed in a dark match before Raw against Tyson Kidd. Though I have done numerous posts recently regarding Tyson Kidd I never mention that Kidd actually sustained injury during the match which at first was thought nothing serious, but then well it turned out to be serious. Now Tyson Kidd is on shelf for 12-14 months following neck surgery, and a certain hall of famer wants to blame his opponent. Here a quote from a bleacher report article on this topic:
"This is just emotion talking. Kidd is married to Hart's niece, Natalya, and has long been close to the Hart family. Kidd trained at the famed Hart Family Dungeon, and Bret has appeared on programming alongside him.
Being that close to Kidd, it's understandable that Hart is so emotional about this."
So I guess from the above quote it is fair to say that the Hall of Famer I am speaking of is Bret Hart who is family to Tyson Kidd and in many ways like the article says it is understandable why Hart is blames Joe. But is it really Joe's fault, I honestly don't think so. In my opinion and the opinion of Mr. Ryan Dilbert from the Bleacher Report "The Muscle Buster actually has more built-in safety measures. Joe's arm protects his foe's neck. And he drops his victim more on their back than their head." Therefore in reality it was just a freak accident, and not really anyone's fault just an unfortunate side effect being in the ring.
You know something that is the problem with a lot of people nowadays they always jump to a conclusion in order to blame someone for an issue or bad event that caused them grief instead of just accepting that bad things happen to good people sometimes. This is a bad time for this injury as Tyson was just beginning to hit his strides in the WWE after years of doing very little to nothing of note. Also Joe had just began his "full-time" contract with the company and it would be really bad way to start. However, I don't think anyone in the WWE blames Joe for the injury nor should they and I think that this just another freak accident that happens in the ring. I want to wish Tyson a speedy recovery and I hope Joe has a lot of success as a full time member of the WWE now.
