The Wrestleline Report-Friday

Terry Taylor who is the current director of talent relations for TNA will be conducting a training seminar in Lafayette, Indiana on Saturday September 15th from 12-3. The cost of this seminar will be $50 and you will need to RSVP to as this seminar will be for the first 25 that sign up.

ECW on Tuesday night scored a 1.5 cable rating.

UFC has signed a deal with HBO and already controversey is stirring about this. Many people have criticized UFC for pushing their brand, and not MMA as a whole. Honestly, I think that's just how business works-you're not going to see Home Depot putting over how great Lowe's is-so why should UFC put over other MMA companies? Duh?
