Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Tara/Kim Couture angle is sure to suck
Here are the match videos for the Knockout matches from Sunday's Bound For Glory PPV. The first video has Taylor Wilde & Sarita defending the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles against Velvet Sky & Madison Rayne. The match is OK but way too short. And they spend far too much time on the Lacey Von Erich pre-match foolishness with the refs. The match was suitable for an episode of Impact but not for a PPV. The other video is the three way match with ODB defending the TNA Knockouts Title against Awesome Kong & Tara. The controversial aspect of this match was when Tara fell out of the ring and got into a scuffle with what seemed to be a fan but turned out to be Randy Couture's ex-wife Kim Couture. Those who read my MMA stuff know about her. But for those who don't, I wouldn't even call Kim an MMA fighter. I'd call her an aspiring MMA fighter with delusions of grandeur. Her record is 1-1. Her jaw was broken in her first fight and her opponent ran away in her second fight. She has a fight coming up against Kerry Vera on the Nov. 20 Strikeforce show. I expect Kerry to knock Kim out. Dave Meltzer said that that there has been no buzz in the MMA community about this. If an experienced qualified MMA fighter like Shayna Bazsler wanted to do pro wrestling, that would be one thing. Kim Couture is not a credible fighter so no one cares. This all started a few months ago when Tara mentioned that she turned down a fight with Kim because Tara is still training and isn't ready. Kim opened her big mouth and talked smack about Tara. TNA is trying to sell this as a shoot. But remember we're talking about Vince Russo and he loves this kind of worked shoot crap. Earlier today, Kim told Ariel Helwani of MMA Fanhouse she only went as a fan and didn't intend to get in a fight with Tara. Tara took the blame for the incident on her MySpace. But Dave Meltzer reports that this angle has been in the works for months. Obviously the real culprit is Russo. Shouldn't he have learned his lesson from the Jenna Morasca crap not to bring in someone who doesn't have a clue about the wrestling business for a major angle? I'm not pissed with Kim for doing a pro wrestling angle. Clearly she's an idiot and doesn't know better. But inevitably these kind of worked shoot angles always suck and using an inexperienced person will just make it worse. Welcome to Vince Russo's TNA. Enjoy the videos!
