Backstage News On King Mo’s Training, Early Word On TNA Bound For Glory PPV Buys, More
– King Mo is said to be taking well to his pro wrestling training in OVW and has been working a lot with Al Snow and Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore. He’s also received a lot of advice from Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe. It’s still very early in Mo’s training as last week he was trying to get used to running the ropes. Mo is attending both beginner and advanced classes. Mo has done a few five-minute mini matches and word is that they were impressed with his selling. Mo really wants to work as a heel but that likely won’t be his decision to make.
– Early estimates have TNA’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view doing 20,000 buys, which would be slightly down from 2011 and way down from 2010 but would be TNA’s best show of 2012 so far, beating Lockdown – estimated at around 17,000 buys.
– The TNA live event from St. Louis on October 27th drew 800 fans with 600 of those paid. WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race was in attendance.
