Vince Russo is teasing that he will be unfiltered with his thoughts now that he’s fired from his job at TNA. He posted the following on his twitter account today.
TNA Executive Vice President John Gaburick announced today that TNA has signed DJ Z to a new multi-year deal.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall reportedly refused to sign a Birthday card 6 year old Danny Nickerson, who is battling brain cancer & may not have much time to live.
Some of those who signed the card & sent well wishes in the video above included – Bill Goldberg, Ric Flair, Edge, Bret Hart, Angelina Love, Candice Michelle, Christy Hemme, Lita, Sean Waltman, Maria Kanellis, Lisa Marie Varon, Taryn Terrell, Brooke Tessmacher & Zeus.
Goldberg & Hall have had issues with each other in the past & it was reported that the two actually made peace at this same event. Knowing how Goldberg feels about helping children & seeing how he got choked up in the video for Danny, you have to wonder if he made up with Hall before or after he got word that Hall refusing to sign the card.
