Update on Abyss’ TV Status, Mickie Knuckles Angry Over Injury Video

Nick Paglino


As most have noticed, Abyss has been kept off TNA television following his brief return a while back. Prowrestling.net is reporting that officials have decided to keep him off TV due to his planned feud with Scott Steiner falling through following Steiner’s injury. TNA also feels that Abyss is better used as an “attraction” rather than someone who is constantly on TV. Management felt that prior to Abyss’ time off he was being over exposed.

TNA Knockout Mickie “Moose” Knuckles was reportedly furious when she received word that video footage of her ankle injury had been posted on YouTube. The video drew over 70,000 views before it was pulled from the internet. Terry Taylor has been in frequent contact with Knuckles, and has told her that her spot on the TNA roster will be waiting for her when she comes back from her injury, no matter how long it takes. The wife of IWA-MS promoter Ian Rotten posted the following on the IWA-MS message board:

We definitely want the clip pulled but not much we can do about it right now since we are at the hospital. Mickie was livid when she found out that someone would post that clip and that someone would even be making videos at the show.

In an update that should make our fans a little happier and we know it will make Mickie breath a lot easier when she gets out of surgery…

Ian has spoken with Terry Taylor and TNA has told him that Mickie’s spot will be waiting for her in three months, six months however long it takes to come back from this. Terry Taylor has told Ian that Jeff Jarrett and Dixie Carter both have called him today asking if he has any news on how Mickie was doing. So that is definitely great news.

Mickie has been back in surgery for a little over an hour now as I type this. We haven’t gotten any updates but we will get on here and post something as soon as we do.

We would like to thank everyone for their kind words as it has eased Ian and myself’s minds as we sit in the waiting room here at the hospital. We know that it is those positive thoughts that will help Mickie pull through this and come back stronger than ever.

Again, I will post an update when we get it as they said it would take 1 – 2 hours for the surgery and she should be getting towards the end depending on how long prep time ran after they took her from us and into the surgery room.
