Impact vs Raw For DirecTV Users, Lashley on “Inside MMA”

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Patrick Noack for sending this in: It will be easy to choose for customers of DirecTV.  On Saturday nights Universal HD replays Monday night Raw and ECW back to back several times over meaning that TNA fans can watch impact live on mondays and then on Saturday still be able to catch up on WWE programming.

Thanks to Bryan W. for sending this in: I was watching “Inside MMA” on HDNet channel yesterday and they had Bobby Lashley, Mike Swick and Randy Couture as guests.  Several references were made to him being a former pro wrestler with WWE and no mention of TNA at all.  A question was posed to everyone on who would win a fight between Lashley and Brock Lesnar, everyone picked Lashley but joked that they had to because he was sitting right there and was bigger then all of them so they were afraid he might beat them up.  He also blew off some comments made by his last opponent that were derogatory towards him as a former pro-wrestler and also some racial comments, although they did not play the comments or repeat exactly what was said.  He defended himself and referenced Lesnar by saying that he had many years as a wrestler and an athlete prior to getting in to “sports entertainment” and that Lesnar has already proved his critics wrong because he is the heavyweight champ and Bobby is in the process of continuing to prove his critics wrong.  When asked who he wants to fight next, he mentioned both Fedor Emelianenko and Alistair Overeem.
