Jesse Neal’s High Point In TNA + A New TNA TV Deal
– Jesse Neal recently spoke with the Do Your Job Wrestling Hour about his time with TNA and more. Check out the highlights:
On his high point with TNA: “The biggest one that actually didn’t get follow through with and actually happen they teamed me, Bubba, Devon, and Rhyno together as The Wrecking Crew and we had so much planned and it was going to be so much planned but of course storylines change with the weather…what we had planned would really be a high point”
On what WWE is missing: “A lot of the guys look the same. There’s nothing that set ls you apart. Yeah I’m putting myself over but what if you saw a guy like me? You have the military background, you have a different look..”
On working Indys: “Of course everybody wants to see John Cena or Randy Orton or Sheamus..if you’re a true fan and you have an Indy show nearby go out and support it because that is the future of the wrestling business.”
– TNA has announced via press release that they’ve signed a long-term contract with All Sports Network which will bring the promotion’s show to TV across Southeast Asia. The deal will make Impact the only wrestling programming being broadcast in Hong Kong and will also make the show available in Cambodia, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, The Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam exclusively on ASN.
Impact will air at 11:30 PM on Fridays in Hong Kong, with PPVs airing Mondays at 8:00 PM (which will be live due to time difference) with three repeats throughout the week.
Dixie Carter commented, saying, “Everyone involved with TNA Impact Wrestling is delighted to be returning to screens in South-East Asia. Partnering with such a prestigious network as ASN is another huge milestone, as we celebrate 10 years of success. I get lots of Tweets and emails from our fans in Hong Kong, and all around South-East Asia, so I’m delighted they can now watch TNA every week exclusively on ASN Ringside – starting with our 10th anniversary event.”
