MCMG/TNA Update, TNA Knockout Suffers Concussion, More

Ryan Clark


The Motor City Machineguns will be taking part in tomorrow’s TNA/Spike TV conference call to help promote Sunday’s TNA PPV.

TNA Knockout Angel Williams a.k.a. ‘Angelina Love’ reportedly suffered a concussion, not to mention a broken finger, in her match at last week’s iMPACT! taping with Amazing Kong. Williams is not the first TNA Knockout to suffer a concussion during a match with Awesome Kong as back in January, Christy Hemme had a medical evaluation, and during the evaluation, she told the doctor that she believed she had suffered a concussion in a match with Kong a few weeks prior. The injury was serious as the doctor wouldn’t clear Christy to come to ringside or bump, and she was forced to miss a set of Impact tapings. The injury altered some storyline plans as it forced TNA to delay the start of Rock ‘n’ Rave Infection gimmick.

Here are the quarter hour ratings for last Thursday’s iMPACT!: 1.08, 1.05, 1.03, 1.02, 1.12, 0.92, 1.14 and 1.02. Apparently, viewers tuned out after the Angelina Love vs. Awesome Kong match. The Knockouts match drew a 1.14 rating, and the heavily hyped Kurt Angle vs. Kevin Nash main event match preceding it plunged the rating down to a 1.02.

The latest issue of Fighting Spirit features an exclusive interview with Velvet Sky. She discusses breaking into wrestling, the success of the TNA Knockouts women’s division, her private life and more.
