Two of my friends got turned away from the fed's tryout camp because 1) they lacked necessary mic skills/charisma and 2) they were already in early 30's they are semi established wrestlers in the local territories but I guess too old to break it on tv.
So how did Joe make it? Remember back in the 70's-early 80's, wrestlers how couldn't speak always had "manager". Seeing Joe wrestler and his "lines" on his stomach where his fat hangs is disgusting and embarassing. Why TNA would renew is beyond me.
I let my friend, who wrote a wrestling book, borrow all my GCW/WCW DVD's from the 70's-early 80's. His wife goes, WTF? All these guys are fat and out of shape. We are in a different era and Dixie making these types of choices are going to be the downfall of TNA.
