    FWA Insider #6

    Coming off the heels of an impressive and WC network record breaking night Fight Night received a 2.5 rating this week. Slightly down from the anniversary show but that was to be expected, considering all the new shows that are premiering within the coming weeks ratings like these are strong. Smash's ratings ticked up mostly due to the heavy advertising for the X title tournament from Vincent Blackbird. Sunday Night Smash scored a stellar 1.2 rating.

    Gabrielle was the big talk of the week for various reasons. Whether it was Shannon O' Neal "calling out" the FWA World Champion as selfish and controlling when it came to the female gender's advancement in the fed or Jethro Warren attacking her character and credibility. She's been a hot topic, even for those who have come to defend her like the recently returned Ayla El and surprisingly the increasingly sinister Saddle Sally. Gabrielle certainly doesn't have a lack of admirer and she has a bevy of enemies ready to take her on. The feeling backstage is that this could end up being a landmark title run for both Gabrielle and the FWA as a whole regardless of how long it actually lasts. Beatrixx Black did solid work in her match with Gabrielle and management continues to be satisfied with her ability on the mic and the ring. Saddle Sally's attack on Beatrixx also got good reviews as it furthered the feud with Beatrixx without overshadowing the events of Gabrielle's week. All in all it was an all star performance and already there are whispers that more women should be put in main events on Fight Night. With Jennifer Sky having returned as well it only seems the womens division in the FWA is getting stronger.

    In a shocking turn of events early on in the FWA broadcast it was revealed by G-Rich himself that not only was Wake Walker paid by Robins Thurgood to take out the General Manager but he was also paid a handsome sum by Phillip A. Jackson. The audio of Langdon Trafford and Piers Gallagher's shocked words have already been turned into an audio internet meme and smashed over other shocking moments in pop culture and sports history. Jackson was promptly fired for his actions and now the former world champion will miss out on the Mile High Massacre match. Phillip A. Jackson was reached for comment by the FWA Insider but he has not returned our calls. With G-Rich back in charge everyone seems happy but there is always trouble brewing and we doubt that the Jackson/G-Rich saga is far from over. Robins Thurgood however is done, for now G-Rich will be operating both Smash and Fight Night as GM until further notice. Thurgood will be appearing on Fox Sports 1 on Thursday to talk about his actions and time in the FWA.

    The Kennedy/Carter administration's tag team carousel is generating a lot of buzz as people wonder who will end up taking on the formidable tag team and if a random team will be able to take them down. Chris Kennedy and Brian Carter have been speaking with various media outlets promoting their team's strength and also talking about how they were inspired to start this to create more interest in the tag division. The mission seems to be a success as the IWC is continually discussing potential tag teams they'd like to see together and also #tagteamcarousel was tending in the US on twitter. Future Shock the team that faced them recently for the tag titles will be out of action for a few weeks, the team recently had to leave the road to take care of some personal matters. Expect Future Shock to be back on your TV screens shortly.

    On the flip side while some have praised Vincent Blackbird's wild X title tournament others have criticized it for being too confusing and too much at one time. Vincent Blackbird has defended his tournament and it seems FWA MGMT is behind him as they too feel that while this tournament is a bit uncanny it could lead to a lot of interesting developments in a rapidly evolving X title division. There are so many wrestlers who are already making quite the impression with brass and road agents. Marcus Thane was placed in a match with Stu St. Clair and while his in ring skills still need work nobody can deny that when he turns it on he has great potential.

    Wolf's aired Hall of Fame speech touched many who watched it and reminded them not only of the importance of the wrestler in the annals of FWA history but just how seriously he took his craft. Wolf merchandise has been flying off the shelves and is currently out of stock on FWA.com Right now an old school Adrian Wolf t-shirt from his rookie year is selling on ebay for north of $475, and it's not even signed! Wolf will be on "Live! With Kelly & Michael" Friday morning to reflect on his FWA career and also talk about a possible career in MMA.

    The feud between Jack of Diamonds and Jason Gryphon is heating up and right now the feud according to road agents has "legs." Gryphon and JOD have a great chemistry in the ring and really can't seem to get the better of one another as signaled by their no contest this past Fight Night. Desmond Fox and James "Eyesnane" Hughes really work in a feud due to Fox's bigoted speech and Hughes' no nonsense mannerisms. Expect the FWA to continue to allow these two to meet in the ring one way or another. While these feuds were expected to do well nobody could have predicted that Shannon O' Neal would become such a hot commodity due to her recent comments. That is the main reason the card was shifted and Shannon was added into a tag team match that pits her against Gabrielle and short lived tag partner Saddle Sally. With Stu St. Clair taking a week off for health reasons this was the perfect time to place Shannon more into the foreground.

    Sunday Night Smash continues to draw controversy with activist groups. Some are still calling for Meth-Head Matt to be fired, while others are singing his praises. The disturbing image shown on Sunday Night Smash also had many parents concerned as their children had nightmares. While the superstar behind this bizarre and oddly dark promo campaign has yet to be revealed many are already generating opinions of him. "It was nightmare fuel, plain and simple" said Jessica Caldstone a mother of two who watches the show with her children. "I thought it was great!" said Tex McCann a gas station attendant who still mails in his fan letters to the FWA. And finally look for Ryan Rondo to start showing up more and more on your TV screen as he begins to promote his new film "Nightcrawler." And Andrew Johnson of Aut Pax Aut Bellum fame was announced yesterday as one of the new leads as well as Vince Vaughn for the next season of "True Detective" the jury is still out on that one.

    Michael Garcia will end Saddle Sally's career the next time he doesn't read his name in this.

    Just kidding, Matt! This was a tremendous read!

    Randy Ramon, for one, loves the unpredictability and chaos that is the X-Division Tournament. Let chaos reign supreme!

    Vincent: Problem is, is that my kind of chaos, the kind of chaos my mind can come up with, needs to be controlled and checked or otherwise Anarchy Truly Would Reign Supreme.

    /ooc the above statement is also very true in reality cause if I weren't being, lack of better word/term, "controlled" then the X Division truly would be chaotic and no one would really know what I (myself) would have Vincent do or have happen to the very Division we care about. Trust me, my ideas are truly out of the box, far beyond the line of sanity, insanely out there. Trust me, my ideas can go places where ideas should never ever venture.
