Matt MorganCTPost.com is featuring a new article on TNA Impact Wrestling star Matt Morgan, which takes a look at Morgan's recent appearance on CMT's "Made," and also discusses his TNA career, including an update on his current injury status. Below are excerpts from the article:

"The intimidating 7-foot-tall, 330-pound frame of professional wrestler and Fairfield native Matt Morgan filled the television screen Wednesday as he prepared an un-athletic Texas police officer to fight in a TNA (Total Non-stop Action) wrestling event as part of a new television series that premiered recently on the CMT cable network.

"It was difficult taking a person who has never played a sport and who is not athletic and trying to form him into, or at least give off the illusion, that he is some sort of athlete," Morgan said regarding trainee Chris Guerra.

"He's very charismatic and witty and he makes fun of himself for being fat, so instead of turning him into a very serious pro wrestler, I thought we'd go the opposite route. We'd go with a comedic character. I showed him enough tools to not get his head taken off, and he'd safely come out of a match.

"His own injury, which is mentioned on the "CMT Made" episode, has sidelined Morgan for more than a month. He has two more weeks of recuperation before he can compete in the ring again." You can read the entire article by clicking on the above link.
