Tyrus Has A Place On The TNA Roster


Disclaimer: Oh boy I think to a lot of people on the site, this write up has been a long time coming and frankly it has been. This write up has essentially been 14 months in the making so let’s get started. In this write up, I will give a little explanation about my writing style to those that have never read my work before as well as talk about the guy in the blog’s headline: EC3’s newest bodyguard Tyrus.

Saturday Night Chat - Oct 18, 2014


Welcome to Saturday Night Chat on TNAMecca!  Although we aren't an open forum where members can start their own threads, our sense of community spirit is what sets us apart from other wrestling sites so we thought it'd be fun to give our members the ability to dictate the discussion for one night a week.  Anything goes in Saturday Night Chat but we do ask that all topics remain TNA-related and stay on topic. You can also discuss any rumors from any source regardless of how ludicrous they might sound.  However, the same etiquette rules that apply to our comments section in general also will apply here, including our policy on spoilers.

Post-IMPACT Discussion for Oct 15, 2014


One of my favorite activities after watching Impact is searching for forums in which fans can talk about the show and share with one another their thoughts.  However, it's getting increasingly harder to find venues where TNA fans can safely express their opinions on Impact without having to deal with the trolling of the anti-TNA crowd or the smarks who insist on taking the fun out of pro wrestling.

For this reason, we felt it was important to make TNAMecca available to our readers and any TNA fans who would like to discuss the show after watching it.  You can now visit TNAMecca immediately following Impact to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every week.  So please feel free to share with us your thoughts on tonight's IMPACT from the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA.  What did you think of the show?  What did you like or dislike?  Let us know.

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Oct 15, 2014


- This week, I think it's important to begin with a hard truth about TNA and their current status. Before I proceed, however, I think I should point out that I genuinely believe that TNA will announce a new TV deal at some point this year, and they will begin anew in 2015 on a new network. With that said, I feel like many TNA fans don't want to accept the fact that the company as we know it might not exist, come this January. I say this simply because I'm sensing that TNA is currently going through a major transition behind the scenes, one in which would ultimately transform several aspects of the company.  I can't say for sure which but I have a feeling the biggest change, other than any potential branding changes, will be the Impact Wrestling roster.  There is reason to believe that much of the roster are currently free agents or soon-to-be before the end of the year.  Being that TNA is currently on hiatus, they will likely opt to not re-sign any of them at least until a TV deal is announced.  Once that happens, I'm sure negotiations with talents will pick up again just in time for the premiere on the new network, presumably on January 7th.  This, however, could backfire on TNA, especially as it relates to talents who might conceivably sign a deal with another network in the meantime. The fact remains that wrestlers who are free agents need to work and they will find it wherever they can. We've already seen Bully Ray tease working for another promotion in recent days, and previously, Kurt Angle spoke on a contract that he was close to signing.  I can only speculate on which wrestlers are currently free agents and which ones will either choose to re-sign with TNA when the time comes or seek employment elsewhere.  I simply do not know.  I do know this, however...there's a strong possibility that the roster could look much different in January.

Pick 'em League: Season 2 Round Up


Last nights historic Bound For Glory from Tokyo, Japan capped off the second season of TNAMecca's Pick 'em League.

Now that the dust has settled from last night, lets look at the breakdown and see how the league picked Bound For Glory.
