News On Samoa Joe, Promoter Cuts Promo On TNA & Other Silliness

Bill Behrens


South Carolina promotion CWA (Champions With Attitude) had a show last night with Samoa Joe promoted, but as Bob Ryder has noted at 1wrestling.com, promoter Roger Gleaton canceled Joe well over a week ago. He had not bought flights nor paid the fee for Joe to TNA, yet even after canceling him he continued promoting him. Why wouldn’t he?

Gleaton even showed up late to his own show claiming to his crew that he had been at the airport for 90 minutes waiting for Joe and that Joe had “no showed”. Gleaton then “strutted” to the ring and cut a promo saying Joe no showed and saying that TNA was stealing CWA’s ideas. He noted that TNA executives Jeff Jarrett and Terry Taylor had been to CWA which is true as I booked both and negotiated their fees.

Adding to the silliness There is a CWA Tag Team called the American Made Gangsters, former ECW & WWE development talent Chilly Willy and a partner who cut and posted several minimally viewed(3 videos starting at 200 views, to 90 to less….remember “less is more”) “shoot” interviews on You Tube claiming, among other silliness, that TNA stole the Main Event Mafia idea from them. Yes two black guys calling themselves “Gangsters”, are suggesting TNA is stealing a gimmick from them rather than the usual suspects, the NWO. Oh and that’s right New Jack and Mustafa were Gangstas not Gangsters, so clearly different. I’m sure New Jack would agree. He’s understanding like that.

And even better booked to appear in CWA next is Dave Foley, yes Dave. Mick better watch his ass is all I’m sayin.

Bless their little hearts……..
