Waltman & Gunn’s Backstage Attitudes In TNA, & More

Tim Brown

Thanks to the PWTorch newsletter for the following:

— Sean Waltman was backstage at this Tuesday’s Impact tapings, but he was not used for the show. Waltman got an injury to a nerve near his hip joint during a match in Mexico recently. It was so bad that he literally had to be carried up two flights of stairs by Billy Gunn after the match. He was in a wheelchair for a while, and couldn’t walk on his own at all. He still made it to TNA Against All Odds, and despite the tremendous pain he managed to perform.

— Apparently WWE let the ‘New Age Outlaw’ trademark expire, so Gunn is in the clear to wrestle under that name in TNA.

— Waltman and Gunn were both said to be excited about wrestling in TNA, and want to be there. Gunn is also said to be excited about the chance to make something of his career after several derailments in WWE. One source describes him as “Hungry to succeed”. We should expect to be seeing the best of Billy Gunn in the near future.
