The Grapevine (1/4/16): Mirakuru




Good morning everyone, and welcome to the Grapevine! This is our daily post rounding up all the interesting rumors from the wild, wild world of pro wrestling that you may have missed over the weekend.

We might have some news on a big pair debuting for TNA soon:



  • TNA has been releasing video packages for what could be Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis. The "Miracle" vignettes, short videos with a message stating that everyone needs a miracle, is for something happening on Impact Wrestling's Pop TV debut this week. The Bennetts are said to have already signed with the company, getting big pushes on their debut. There was some speculation that he could be called "Miracle" Mike Bennett or something along those lines. (Source: F4WOnline)


We say: We're open-minded sa business, but these vignettes seem terribly produced, and whatever the character will be seems beyond the grasp of intuition upon seeing these videos. As of right now, it seems like it's trying to be Bo Dallas-adjace. Let's hope we're wrong.


  • There is a negative backstage reaction toward an angle Dana Brooke did for Breaking Ground. She's been out with an undisclosed injury, which is why she hasn't been wrestling at any of the recent NXT events. The reaction had to do with taping a worked angle for a show that generally sticks to reality. (Source: WON)

We say: While reality television has generally used some sort of scripting to guide their narrative, we're pretty impressed with people's devotion to Breaking Ground being kept a shoot show. Anyway, we hope Dana Brooke gets well from whatever it is soon.

What do you think? What, in your opinion, is TNA's "miracle"? Do you like Breaking Ground? Let us know what you think in the comments!
