Robbie E Talks The BroMans, Future Goals and More

This week on the v2 wrestling podcast, Adam Davey is joined by TNA star Robbie E. The full audio is available at this link. Below are some highlights.

On the atmosphere backstage in TNA:
"It’s the same, we’re just on a different TV network. Same crew, same show. The roster is better than ever and things are looking up. The great thing about TNA is that we’re always getting better and better. We never take steps back, bro. We take steps forward, we take risks, we’re back in the six sided ring, and we’re always giving you something different that stands out. Speaking for myself, I’m at an all-time high in my career. I love where I’m at and I love where TNA is at."

The Draft


There are two things that I spend more time thinking about than is probably normal. One is reading about and studying how successful companies are run, and the other is making up pretend wrestling matches in my head, so I figured, if I'm going to spend time thinking about this stuff, I might as well turn it into the latest edition of Knockout Shots.

One of my favourite books is "Moneyball" by Michael Lewis, which focuses on the story of Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane's attempts to construct a baseball roster that will not only win games but has the potential to go all the way to the World Series. The only problem is, Beane has to do it on a budget of almost nothing. The act of roster building has always fascinated me in all types of sports, including wrestling, so for this edition of Knockout Shots, I'm combining the art of roster building with my interest in wrestling fantasy warfare.

TNA announced that, beginning this week, Impact Wrestling will air in Canada on the Fight Network on Fridays at 9 p.m. The deal includes Xplosion and TNA's Greatest Matches (press release).

This announcement comes on the heels of TNA's new partnership with Esporte Interativo in Brazil (press release). They will also broadcast on Eurosport in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

In addition, TNA star Khoya teased that the company will tour India in the near future. "Sure, TNA will soon come to India for live events," he said in an interview with Sportskeeda. "I would just like to spur the young fans to follow their dreams with passion and stay focused. If TNA schedules an event in India, I would be the first one to request a match for my audience here."

Twitter Impact


One of my favorite things with Impact Wrestling is live tweeting my thoughts of the show. Most of us enjoy it, especially when we get responses or re-tweets from those on the Impact roster. It’s one of the few benefits of social media in that the performers get the chance to interact with their fan base almost instantaneously. Being a major fan of all wrestling, I tend to have followers who vary on their enthusiasm for the Impact Wrestling product. I want to take a look at several tweets that came across the @IMPACTWRESTLING timeline while watching the show.
