Black Reign's release, Matt Morgan a ratings draw

Regarding the cut of Black Reign (Dustin Runnels) last week, it was more of a formality than anything else since he hadn't been used in a over three months and there were no plans to use him on television. However, the door is still open for a possible return should TNA ever need him. Runnels was on a pay-per-appearance deal.

TNA star Matt Morgan, known as "The Beast," on American Gladiators, appears to be a bit of a ratings draw for the NBC program. His appearances on American Gladiators drew the highest quarter hour on both the 7/21 and 7/28 shows. The 7/28 show did a 3.2 on the fast nationals, up from what the show has been doing in recent weeks. This past Monday's show was the season finale. No word yet if the show is going to be picked up for a third season.

Just a couple of little notes right there.

TBH i really wouldn't mind dustin coming back not as black reign and just becoming someones manager or some sort of backstage role beings i have always liked him but his time has just come and passed in the rings so i don't want to see him there.

I don't watch American Gladiators but otehr wrestling fans seem to be tuning in to see matt. like i said before im pretty high on the guy so i hope he can get TNAs ratings to go up too.
