[TNA News] Bully Ray Re-Signs With Company

PWInsider has reported that TNA wrestler Bully Ray has signed a two year deal to remain with the company as both an in-ring performer and as an agent backstage. Since splitting from Devon (who himself left TNA last week), Ray has gotten himself in shape and evolved into not only a capable singles performer, but arguably the best heel TNA has at their disposal and maybe even a future TNA World Heavyweight Champion (YES PLEASE).

As you can tell I’m happy about this news; Ray is one of my favorites on the TNA roster and one of the reasons I tune into IMPACT Wrestling every week; he’s gotten a lot better in the ring and his heel persona is both unique and old school at the same time (and also has shades of his old Dudley Boyz “yell at the crowd” routine from ECW). I’m rooting for him to eventually become World Champion and I think leaving TNA would be an absolute mistake for him career-wise. Here’s hoping he gets that main event run in the next two years.

[TV Recap] Impact Wrestling – 7/26/2012

Note: Unlike Raw, I will not be covering Impact Wrestling on a constant week to week basis due to real-life situations (work, school, etc.). I’ll do my best to keep it as consistent as I can but no promises. I’m also going to rework my recap style through this one as well for the 8000th time since this site opened three days ago.

On tonight’s edition of Impact Wrestling:

  • TNA president Dixie Carter names a new interim GM to replace an injured Hulk Hogan.
  • A new number one contender will be named for Zema Ion‘s X-Division Title and Ion himself will defend the belt.
  • The “Bound for Glory Series” continues with two more matches (James Storm/A.J. Styles and Kurt Angle/Bully Ray)
  • Chavo Guerrero Jr. will make his TNA debut.
  • The Aces and 8’s will undoubtedly make their presence felt once again.
  • Sam Shaw will get another chance to prove himself in the TNA Gut Check.
  • And a whole lot more!
