Rockstar Spud Given New "Long-Term" Contract



As can be seen in the video above, Rockstar Spud was given a new long-term contract with TNA. While it does play into storylines with Spud being Dixie's chief of staff, the contract is a legitimate one and Spud will be sticking around for years to come.

Reaction: Spud has been great in his role for the past few months. He has become one of my favorite wrestlers to watch recently (along with EC3) so I am happy to see his deal extended.

The Warrior's Code

You're the fighter, you've got the fire
The spirit of a warrior, the champion's heart
You fight for your life because the fighter never quit.,
You make the most of the hand you're dealt because a quitter never wins
