The word backstage is that older wrestlers such as Kevin Nash explained to all who would listen that this is how it was during the WCW/WWE war in the 90s, and that McAllister should have known better. A lot of people on the Internet have taken shots at TNA for showing McAllister on television, but not the Sixshooter.
TNA is an upstart company who is rumored to finally be turning a profit after years of being in the red. They have no obligation to anyone in another company or do they have to oblige by that said company's rules. The WWE has done way worse (imitating other wrestlers from other promotions, showing up at other promotions' headquarters, etc.) in the past to other companies, and it was about time someone took a shot at them. The Sixshooter says it is about time the WWE got off of its high horse.
Speaking of the WWE, they did a valiant job with the Ric Flair retirement. The angle, which was thought of by Stonecold Steve Austin, was done in a tasteful manner and gave life to an aging Flair character. Word backstage is Flair does not want to get into announcing and will be doing promotional work with the company. The Sixshooter has a feeling we have not seen the last of Flair on WWE television. Not with his son, Reid Flair, training for a spot on the roster as we speak.
Look for HHH to end up with the championship belt at "Backlash." There is a reason that the match was made a fatal four-way, and the reason is neither John Cena nor Randy Orton want to lose to HHH. Somehow, the Sixshooter envisions a HHH versus C.M. Punk title match in the near future.
Big Daddy V was reportedly sent home to lose some weight. WWE officials were said to be very worried about his recent health. The Sixshooter wonders why all of the sudden they are worried, considering the guy has been over 400 pounds his entire career. Maybe they should not have pushed the fact that he was so heavy all these years and gotten him in shape.
TNA has started to launch into an era where their title matches will look a little bit stiffer. It kicked off with Samoa Joe versus Kurt Angle, and will get rolling next month with a title shot from Scott Steiner. The idea came from a special TNA aired a couple of months ago about their tour of Japan. In that special, Kurt Angle faced off against Yuji Nagata in a match people raved about. TNA wants to do those types of stiff matches for the time being.
Jim the Anvil Neidhart's daughter has been signed by the WWE. Nattie Neidhart made her debut on "Smackdown" last week. No word yet if Jimmy Hart intends to manage her. Kelly Kelly may be soon donning the cover of "Playboy." Word backstage is that she is mulling an offer from the magazine. Her boyfriend, Andrew Test Martin, was arrested this past weekend on DUI charges, so maybe Kelly Kelly will need the extra cash to keep him out of prison.
