We are deeply sadden to report that legend Tommy Gilbert passed away early this morning. Tommy is the father of "Hotstuff" Eddie Gilbert and "Dangerous" Doug Gilbert.
Doug posted "My dad Tommy Gilbert left us and is now home in heaven with Eddie. Prayers during this difficult time are appreciated! DGs"
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.

UPROXX.com has published a very badly worded announcement supposedly announcing the retirement from professional wrestling of Kia Stevens, aka Awesome Kong, aka Amazing Kong. This announcement supposedly came from a wrestling promotion in Japan. Now, I do not know how much truth, if any, exists here. There has been no announcement from TNA. There has been no announcement by Stevens. It is my understanding that Kong is still under contract to TNA. In fact, I doubt it is true. We will see what, if anything develops. Here is the badly worded and badly translated announcement published on UPROXX.com:
“First, I sincerely apologize that it cannot compete in the 25-day Korakuen Hall. Began feeling the accident from this fall to their own physical condition, but has worked in demodulation while visits Today to the state fight with even become (USA 21 date) Japan is in the far state. That you go up to the ring in this state, to compete in the fan of everyone and 25 day Korakuen Hall, As well as hitting the rude for all players, it was suggested to retire from wrestling from the doctor. It’s really a pity but not carried out last game along with my respect to players in Japan, Kia Stevens does not rise to anymore of Japan ring. I have decided to retire from just wrestling.
Because I was come continued to active duty so far there was a group called the All Japan Women’s Pro-Wrestling. And thanks to all seniors and friends who gave me lovingly as his sister is a foreigner. Sincerely I am grateful to all professional wrestling officials and fans of everyone in Japan.
And women’s wrestling in Japan, including the SEAdLINNNG I wish you from the bottom of my heart to be more and more development. Kia Stevens will retire from professional wrestling Thank you very much until now.”
