Like I said earlier, Lashley will probably follow the same line that Lesnar did. Put him in undercard MMA fights to get experience before putting him in the UFC, and yes, he will generate good revenue.

Lashley has basiclly said that if he was asked to go back to the WWE, he would say yes.

Now i heard, that in a interview a couple of months back.

I cant see him working for WWE again, he has said he wants a lighter schedule and with the prospect of a UFC career in front of him why would he go back? UFC would be crazy not to cash in on a Lashley/Lesnar fight, they just want Lashley to get a couple of fights under his belt.
WWE would not grant a light schedule to a guy who no doubt had potential but ultimately failed to become the top drawing babyface they wanted him to be despite receiving a massive push.

the main reason why Lashley didn't draw as well as he could is because he has the same background as LEsnar and everyone knew that, same big figure, same style, so basically the fans look at what he does, and tell me except for the finisher (which the F-5 was much better), what have we not seen from Lashley that would separate him from Lesnar? Lashley kinda had that cockiness in him, but Lesnar was a volcano waiting to erupt. Everytime Lesnar got in the ring, you knew something big would happen. Thats how Lesnar got over with the fans.

What would Lashley bring to TNA in all fairness? The answer is very little. They already have a big, tall muscleman in Matt Morgan who's far more capable on the mic then Lashley ever has been, and he'd be one of these stars that wouldn't get too far before being knocked back into the midcard followed by a swift release.

He was good in WWE because he had this aura to him on Smackdown and ECW. On RAW he was put out of his element in a roster which was so full of names he looked like a spare part. He got one month with Cena and while still looking dominant, failed to find himself there a month later.

Now see him try to that with Kurt/Sting/AJ....I can't say his odds would be favourable.

I think Lashley would fit in TNA a lot better than he would in the WWE. I know TNA has a monster face in Abyss, but i think Lashley has more to offer right now than Abyss. Sad considering I did love Abyss when he was with Mitchell, but Abyss' character has gone completely out of whack with the therapy and all that. On top of that, Lashley would draw more than Abyss would, and to top it, hes a natural wrestler. But I know Lashley would stay in MMA, and btw Lashley/Ken shamrock match coming up i think on the 22rd of march.

I saw alot of potential in Lashley but his downfall was his lousy mic skills.
WWE should have booked him as a heel like Lesnar was originally, with a manager to act as his mouth piece.
Anyway he most likely wont be in TNA anytime soon unless Shamrock completely destroys him but i think that is unlikely.

Quote source: PWInsider.com

-- It looks like TNA fans won't be seeing Cute Kip and Jacqueline on their television screens anymore — or at least much.

Following TNA president Dixie Carter's decision to remove them from television this past week, the two veterans have apparently been phased out as performers altogether — quite like BG James this past summer. However, they will likely be retained on the company payroll in the role of backstage agents offering guidance to the women of the Knockouts division.

Both wrestlers are 45 years old.

* TNA get slagged off for having old people on screen and not pushing younger people as much as they should, yet those same people will be upset with one or both of those people being phased out.

* It will probably not even get brought up on screen why Kip or Jacqueline is even missing from Impact for.

* Backstage they could both come in useful, but will be on less money just being trainers or road agents.

Dixie could have atleast given The Beautiful People a rub. Kip tells them he's tired of there shit, and *rips off shirt* SUCK IT! They then low blow him. tie him in the ropes and attack him, then the Gov. and the other run down for the save. It atleast gives them and the fans a reason for him being gone.

Jaq. was a great worker, and will be a great aganet, and probably was a agent in an unofficial way for a while.
