      Well, youre right. WWE is a billion dollar company. TNA ismply isnt. No one else is.

      On the wrestlers, a lot go to TNA because the schedule is so much lighter. In WWE, they do house shows 3+ times a week, plus TV shows, plus PPV's. TNA has tapings for 3 weeks of shows at a time, an occasional house show, and PPV's. So they go for lighter schedules.

      Also, some hold grudges against MCMahon and the wwe, and would love to help a competitor de-throne them.

      Theres a lot of reasons. Christian went there because the WWE wasnt utilizing him right, Angle went there for the lighter schedule and because he and mcmahon had a falling out.
      So McMahon really is a dick? Not just the character?

        That depends on who you ask. A lot of wrestlers love him, a lot of wrestlers hate him. He will screw over someone though, if he feels its right for business. He always puts business first. not to say thats bad, thats how he became so successful. Angle claims that he needed time off so that he could heal all his lingering injuries, but McMahon wouldnt let him take time off because he was one of the main draws at the time. That is understandable from McMahons perspective, but you can also see why Angle is unhappy there.

          I thought McMahon let him go because he didn't want Angle to kill himself at the rate he's going (and Angle probably will be dead within the next decade).

            Well, I wasnt talking about when he let him go. I assume that parts of both stories about that are right though. Angle should have taken more time off, but its really a cloudy story on both fronts.

              Why will Angle be dead?

                A lot of injuries. Late in his WWE career he had painkiller addictions from never resting and always going out there and trying to make every match a huge match. Theres a lot more to it, but thats part of it.

                    Yea, a LOT of wrestlers were. Angle said they were for his numerous broken necks. But this all happened before there was a wellness program in the WWE.

                        You have to take some of the wrestlers named in the steroid controversaries with grains of salt because many of them were recovering from neck surgeries and its typical to be on steroids for that medical issue.

                                Yeah Cor Von really botched that move and both are lucky to be alright. I was watching that and when I saw that I was like "Holy ****"! Thats not what CM Punk or ECW need right now.
