TNA signs one-legged American war hero


Earlier today, TNA announced the signing of American war hero and single leg amputee, Chris Melendez, to a multi-year contract.

Curtis Axel: The Rock's Trainer


While we can all agree that Curtis Axel is a huge charisma vacuum, here's one thing that can't surely be taken away from him: he got The Rock in "ring shape" in time for The Great One's WM 28 Main Event match (and, later on, Brock Lesnar, too). No wonder the E still thinks highly of him.
