Rhino

Dixie Carter always seems to have a little something up her sleeve… and this time it just so happened to be a BIG something. RHINO! The bone-crushing beast known as Rhino, shocked everyone when he came to the aid of the Carters on last Thursday’s episode of Impact Live. Known for his hard hits, Rhino is sure to shakeup that Impact Zone as part of Dixie’s posse. Coming of the heels of Rhino’s scandalous return to TNA, we have put together a list of his top 5 wildest moments with TNA.

 

 

#5 – The War Machine Rhino’s Brawl with the Monster Abyss

Abyss is known as one of TNA’s most feared wrestlers, but to Rhino he’s just another opponent. After a hard fought match, Rhino lays Abyss out using his signature finisher, the Gore.

 

 

#4 –Rhino Gores Samoa Joe and The Alpha Male

Rhino has his weapon and he knows how to use it! He’s a fan of the phrase, “killing two bird with one stone,” in this next wild moment.

 

 

#3 – Rhino Takes Down Sting

Sting is one of the legends of professional wrestling, so when he gets so badly beaten that a paramedic needs to check on him in the ring, you know his aggressor has done some serious damage.

 

 

#2 –  8 Mile Street Fight with Christian Cage

Bound For Glory 2006’s 8 Mile Street Fight had it all… straight jackets, tables, chairs, street signs, ladders, blood. What more could you want? Even though Cage pinned Rhino in the end, it still goes down in our books as one of his wildest moments.

 

 

#1 – Rhino Lashes Out At Vince McMahon

An angry Rhino lashes out at one of the most powerful people in the wrestling business in his #1 wildest moment. We couldn’t agree more. “Long live TNA!”

TheFreakJB623

Since the Menagerie debuted, we have received thousands of questions from fans asking one simple question: WHO IS THE FREAK!?

Of course, when you see the imposing stature of the masked man, it’s not surprising that everyone wants to know what lies beneath the mask. What we know, per Knux, is that the Freak is a physical specimen unlike any other – a strongman who can out-lift anybody in the TNA locker room. Determined to provide you with the answers you seek, IMPACTWrestling.com has set out on a hunt to determine who the Freak might be…

 

 

Rockstar Spud

TheFreakspud1423

Conspicuously never around when the Menagerie take the ring, we can even report that Spud has been spotted in the locker room with a hood on. Upon questioning, he claimed to be practicing for an upcoming audition for “Little Red Riding Hood,” which he says will be his big Broadway breakout. Not so sure we believe him…

 

 

Sanada

TheFreakSanada1422

As has been witnessed on Spin Cycle, Sanada is known to steal the spotlight of his peers. Could it be that the X-Division Champion just hasn’t gotten enough camera time to satisfy his desires? Since moving to the US, we do know that he loves carnivals so we can’t rule him out as a suspect!

 

 

Jeremy Borash

TheFreakJB623

Why is it that the Freak never speaks? Is he simply letting his actions do the talking? OR, could the voice be so recognizable that it would blow his identity? Ok, we know that this has taken a turn for the silly. Maybe JB isn’t the Freak… but, we’ve saved the most likely choice for last!

 

 

Mike Tenay

TheFreaktenay422

Since debuting, The Menagerie has been a favorite of Taz – especially the Freak, as is evident with Taz’s trademark “FREEEEAK” call during their entrance. We all know that Taz is tough to impress, so why would he instantly be a fan of the Menagerie? Two reasons: 1. Rebel and 2. his legendary announce partner Mike Tenay has finally made an in-ring debut! There it is… We solved it. You’re welcome.

And, congrats to Mike Tenay! How old is he again!? MAN LOOKS BUFF!

Feel free to ask us any other questions you may have and we’ll continue to get you the latest, greatest breaking news!

 

Gail Kim is widely considered the BEST female wrestler on the planet today. After a victory against Angelina Love yesterday, she is also your TNA Knockouts Champion for a 4th time! Not only that, but Gail Kim is a professional wrestling fan. She and her sister would often stay up late to watch wrestling when she was growing up. Little did she know then, but she would also become the first woman recruited to join TNA and would play a major role in developing the TNA Knockouts Division.

“After I met with [TNA], I knew it was what I really wanted to do and my passion was reignited. I’ve won the TNA Knockouts Championship four times now. The most meaningful to me was the very first Championship match- it was like all of my dreams had come true in that one night,” Gail says.

In 2007, Gail was victorious in a 10-woman gauntlet match to crown the first-ever Knockouts Champion. After several incredible matches (and title defenses), Gail would go on to be named the TNA Knockout of the Year that same year.

Fast forward to 2011, Gail Kim returned to TNA after time away and quickly found gold again, winning the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship with Madison Rayne. Gail then, immediately, defeated Velvet Sky to capture the TNA Knockouts Championship again – making Gail the second woman in TNA history to be a double champion. During this reign, Gail would go on to become the longest reigning Knockouts Champion of all time with an impressive 210 day reign!

After a series of lauded matches with Taryn Terrell, Gail Kim went on to capture her third Knockouts Championship in 2013. Now, with her hands clutching the title for the fourth time in her career, Gail Kim is once again the Queen of the Knockouts and we expect her to do whatever it takes to keep the title around her waist!

Like it or not, Samuel Shaw has been released under Gunner’s “supervision” and returns to IMPACT this week. What are the implications and where will Shaw’s allegiances lie?
 
Recently, Mr. Anderson has done everything in his power to eradicate Samuel Shaw from TNA. From visiting his family home to having him locked up in a psychiatric ward after Sacrifice this past May, where he languished until Gunner’s intervention.
 
Gunner  took the time to visit Shaw in solitary confinement and made it a priority to help him on the long road back to sanity. Even Shaw’s doctors have been impressed with the progress he has made over recent weeks with Gunner’s help.
 
That being said, this is still the same Samuel Shaw who terrorized Christy Hemme. The same man who battled Mr. Anderson in a series of vicious matches and unprovoked attacks.  Has he really been brought back from the edge, or is this simply a shrewd ploy to gain access to those he wronged once again? To continue to terrorize and fixate on the object of his affections and to punish Mr. Anderson for the wrongs (real and imaginary) that have been done to him. And just where does Gunner fit into this picture? Will he be able to keep Shaw on the straight and narrow or will this move come back to haunt him?

What we do know is that Samuel Shaw will be at IMPACT tonight with Gunner! Make sure you tune-in to Spike TV at 9/8c to see what unfolds.

Taryn Tarrell2

Taryn Terrell is your classic girl next door embracing her signature blonde locks and captivating smile. When she isn’t in the wrestling ring fighting for the Knockouts Championship belt  you can find her enjoying the summer and showing off her great style. Get your summer wardrobe ready, because Taryn is opening up about her fashion style this season and everything you need for the perfect summer outfit. Her tips are below:
 

First off, there is nothing better than a pair of daisy dukes to keep cool in the summer! I love pairing cut off denim shorts with cute vintage band tees or tank tops.Taryn Terrell in Daisy Duke cutoff jeans on the stairs

Long summer skirts can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a day time casual look when you are heading to the beach or out for a little shopping, wear flip flops and a tank top. If you want to use the same outfit but dress it up a bit for a daytime party, change out those flip flops for a pair of chunky heels and add gold chandelier earrings.

Golf and tennis attire is always cute during the hot summer months! I love to play 18 holes of golf at the local country club in a cute white skirt and polo top!

Nothing can beat my all-time favorite summer look…the bikini. There’s nothing like a bright colored bikini and matching nails to say summer is here!Taryn Terrell in a Bikini 
Get your summer started off right by incorporating my entire summer fashion favorites into your wardrobe. These effortless looks will have people asking for your style advice!

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." -- Lord Acton

MVP's six month tenure in TNA can be summed up by this famous quote. What started as a breath of fresh air in TNA and someone to counter Dixie Carter's agenda, turned into a self-indulgent nightmare.
When MVP joined TNA as a minority investor and later as the Director of Wrestling Operations, his intentions seemed honorable.

With his background as a wrestler, he was viewed as being a friend to the locker room, understanding what it was like to be in their shoes. He gave an up-and-coming tag team like The Wolves an opportunity to win the Tag Team World Championship and a wrestling journeyman like Eric Young the opportunity of a lifetime to challenge and win the World Heavyweight Championship.

But sadly over time, MVP's real intentions became known. He was not acting in the best interest of the roster or the company -- he wanted to consolidate all the power, including the World Championship, for himself.

But like so many powerful people, MVP fell victim to his own hubris and the TNA Board of Directors forced him to abdicate his reign and replaced him with the Olympic Gold Medalist and NEW Executive Director of TNA, Kurt Angle.

So what happens now? Does MVP fall in line behind Kurt Angle's leadership and try to legitimately earn his way back for a shot at the title? Or like Napolean, will he use his exile to plot his return to power? Now that Lashley is champion, does he even need MVP anymore? One thing is for sure, we will find out tomorrow on Spike TV during #IMPACTLive.

Kurt Angle was named as the Executive Director of TNA Wrestling this past week on Impact Live by the TNA Board of Directors and he’s already making changes.  Effective today – the TNA World TV Title is now inactive. 

What does this mean?  We reached out to Kurt Angle for a comment.

Kurt – “The TV Title was left dormant by the Dixie Carter and MVP administrations for over a year.  Taking over as Executive Director has required me to fix issues they left behind.  Championships are the reward of competition inside the ring between wrestlers striving to be the best.  As of now, the TV Title is inactive.  I’m looking for our roster to step up their level of competition and wrestle on a higher level for the World Heavyweight, X-Division, Knockout and World Tag Team Championships.”

Every summer, the value of X-Division Championship is raised as that champion is given the choice of cashing in that title for a shot at the World Title at Destination X (July 31st on Spike TV).  Kurt’s focus on championship competition starts with this Thursday at 9/8c on Spike TV with Kurt Angle’s Red, White and Blue Throwdown.  Angelina Love will defend the Knockouts Title against Gail Kim.  The Wolves will defend their World Tag Team Titles and World Heavyweight Champion Lashley will defend against former Champion Eric Young.
