The Big TNA Release, Tonight’s ROH PPV Taping, RVD/ECW, Foley

Ryan Clark

Marco Beltran sent this in: I went to the Wizard World Convention in Los Angeles (on Saturday) and was surprized when I viewed “Mr. Monday Night,” Rob Van Dam. He was apparently making his usual comic convention appearance, but wearing an “ECW Originals” which I thought was weird for a man trying to distance himself from the WWE for the time being. Later on, I saw his actual booth which was right next to the hardcore legend Mick Foley’s booth and TNA Knockout Christy Hemme, but no one in current WWE circulation. They were all charging the fans for the their time and I, being low on cash, was only satisfied by shaking Mrs. Foley’s Little boy’s hand; the man had grip that sent chills down my spine. Rob Van Dam was literally unreachable for most of the day. Just thought I’d report it since no one wrote about it yet.

Regarding Judas Mesias departure from TNA, he was asking for a contract matching what he was earning in Mexico, but was turned down. Mesias makes approximately $100,000 a year under a full 5-night-a-week, 52-week schedule in Mexico. His feud with Abyss had run its course and they didn’t really have any other plans for him. However, a possible return to the company shouldn’t be ruled out as the company wouldn’t mind using him again if and when a storyline for him comes up.
