Identity of Abyss at Slammiversary, Tessmacher’s Name Change & More

Posted by Matt Boone June 11, 2012 12 Comments

- The man who played Abyss at last night’s TNA Slammiversary pay-per-view was a student named Lance from Team 3D’s wrestling school in Florida.

- TNA has dropped the Brooke from Miss Tessmacher’s name because of the arrival of Brooke Hogan. Word is that Hulk Hogan didn’t want two Brookes in the company. Tessmacher won the Knockouts Title at Slammiversary and her new nickname from here on out will be “Tess.”

- Dixie Carter announcing Sting as the first inductee into TNA’s Hall of Fame was a surprise to everyone in the company with the exception of a very small number of people. Both Sting and Hulk Hogan did not know before Sunday.

- Dixie wrote the following on Twitter after Slammiversary:

“What a beautiful, proud night. Thank you D/FW. Thank you wonderful fans for 10 amazing years!!! Great, great PPV.”

        Let’s get this straight right now, yes Jeff Jarrett deserved to be in the Hall of Fame. He’s had a really good, borderline great career, and he founded TNA. Sting in the other hand has had a great career and is a bigger star in the wrestling business that surpasses Jeff Jarrett on any day of the week. AJ deserves it but he’s still got some mileage left on the tires and inducting him now would be like WWE inducting John Cena or Randy Orton.

        My bet is Sting’s induction leads to a Jeff Jarrett vs Sting match at BFG where the loser retires (Jarrett) and he’s inducted the following year.

      So Tessmacher who has been in TNA for two years now and finally gets the knockout title has to change her name because of Brooke Hogan? Fail!

      But you can have Robbie T., Robbie E., Rob Van Dam, Bobby Roode, Chris Sabin, Christopher Danies, and Christy Hemme. A lot of same and similar names there. But no Brooke. Huh?
