If not, I will make a business decision." Keep in mind that Angle previously wrote that he has three years remaining on his contract and claimed he was making as much in TNA as he was in WWE. TNA really should find a way to take control of Kurt's Twitter page from 10 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.

-WWE wrestler Tensai (a/k/a Matt Bloom) spoke with The Score's Arda Ocal at the SummerSlam Axxess event and was asked whether the fans chanting "Albert" bothers him. "No, not at all. I actually love that. People ask me all the time, 'Does that bother you?' It doesn't bother me at all." You can view the video at

-Late "The Real World: Hollywood" reality show star Joey Kovar was honored by the Poww Entertainment promotion over the weekend. The reality star had a sting with the promotion and had hoped to make it to TNA. You can read more on the tribute at
