Update on WWE & TNA stories

A couple of late updates on the WWE & TNA news stories.

Within WWE, the word has been sent out internally that the Bryan Danielson firing is legitimate the same way any other firing would be done.  All the higher-ups in the company were informed that he was gone before the item that everyone assumes to be a work was put on the web site. It's difficult to believe given the timing that it could possibly be legitimate.  The idea they would work their own employees on a wrestling angle is also hard to fathom given the history of companies that have done that.


The creative team was also told today that he's gone.


The TNA deal has been the subject of a lot of speculation.  Dixie Carter would not tell key people in the company anything other than make cryptic remarks about wanting to make sure everyone is on the same page.
