WNC first reported this story here around 1:00 this morning. The Highway Patrol has confirmed that is was Corey Maclin who was killed in the one car roll over crash in Panola County that happened around 11 PM Tuesday night. Corey Maclin was a big part of Memphis Wrestling and also a former local sports anchor in the Memphis area. I was told this morning that Corey was working on bringing another wrestling show to TV in the Memphis area. Our thoughts and Prayers go out to his friends and family.

Dixie Carter stated Taeler Hendrix was “heavy for TV”
In a recent interview with The Greg DeMarco Show, Taeler Hendrix addressed her TNA release, the latest feedback from Dixie Carter, her thoughts on some current Knockouts, the mood in OVW, her upcoming return to Shine Wrestling, her most recent cancer scare and much more.
The Greg DeMarco Show with former TNA Knockout Taeler Hendrix
Hosts: Greg DeMarco, Patrick O’Dowd, Su Yung & Chad Perry
Airs: Sunday nights at 10 PM on Wrestling Smash Radio and on delay Monday’s and Tuesday’s via the Real Fans Sports Network (TuneIn.com channel RFSN)
On her release from TNA:
It was kind of a whirlwind ... a long time in the making … I was super-duper unhappy ... the All-American Dream ... BAM! Hit in the face! It’s not happening girl, wake up! I got papers in the mail to re-sign for another year in developmental at OVW for TNA … Before I could tell them that I wouldn’t re-sign, I got the call the day before my contract expired to tell me I was released. ... Maybe they can use that spot for someone they actually know what they want to do with. ... I’m not offended—I’m a lot happier.
On if the mood in OVW has changed since the recent releases:
Yes, actually. Now that I’m not signed anymore, I think I’m enjoying it more—from an OVW standpoint. ... It’s home… There’s wrestling every single week, you can’t get more work than that. ... I am loving my character right now, she’s awesome. ... She’s like that girl we all hated in high school. ... A lot of people who were released, they’re gone.
On Dixie Carter:
I do have my qualms. Don’t tell me on my birthday that I’m “heavy” to be on TV. ... I’m a size 3, that’s not fat at all! ... I’m a role model for young girls, there’s nothing plastic about me. ... (On her size a year prior) I was too skinny! ... I got really skinny just to get on television. ... Someone said I looked like a skeleton, and then I started looking at my pictures and I was like “Oh my God, I really do!”... I’m taller than [most female wrestlers] but I’m not bigger than them.
On her latest cancer scare:
On top of that, my cancer stuff came back. ... I had no choice to gain weight, and I’m really happy that I did. ... What I’m battling right now is cervical cancer—and when I say battling I mean I’m trying to not get it. ... I wasn’t setting a good example. … I felt like I was a hypocrite. ... I would rather be healthy and stay cancer free.
On Velvet Sky:
She has found a way to stick it out ... and she was released at one point. ... Velvet Sky is money. ... And if I have someone who makes me money, I’m going to keep them around. ... She’s not the best wrestler in the world, but neither am I. ... She makes money. ... Velvet Sky has some of the most loyal fans in the world. ... She has a great personality, in ring and out. ... And you know what? She’s gotten much better. ... I’m a fan—she can keep letting the pigeons loose. ... That girl’s a hot commodity.
In addition, Taeler also discusses the internet’s reaction to her release, her upcoming bookings for Shine Wrestling, how she keeps finding family in wrestling, her goals outside of the wrestling business and much more.
This 45+ minute interview, plus Su Yung sharing the details of her Dragon Gate USA debut as Anthony Nese’s secretary, thoughts on TNA’s release of Jesse Sorensen, Daniel Bryan’s Raw push, the Dolph Ziggler-Big E Langston feud, John Cena’s mounting world title reigns and more can be found at this link:

Here are three tweets from Taeler Hendrix on twitter claining she was misquoted:
"Stop accosting @tnadixie She is running TNA. If you listened to me instead of reading drama dirt sheets you'll see I didn't say she said it"
"Be classy fans! Don't be trashy. Stop, think, and take time before you jump the gun. @TNADixie has a hard job. She does what she sees fit."
"Be classy! That's how I was raised. Know me enough to know I wouldn't go on an interview & mention names. Start fresh for its a new day fans"

IWA presents "Back to School Bash!" This Friday, August 2 at 8pm. 3035 Directors Row inside the Directors Plaza II Suite E Memphis, Tn. Admission for Adults $8. Kids and Teens in school get in Free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Japanese wrestling legend The Great Muta, is in talks with a "famous promotion" to trade talent with his brand new Wrestle-1 promotion in Tokyo. He recently left his position at All-Japan Pro Wrestling, taking many of the roster with him to start Wrestle-1, which launched on July 10th.
Muta (real name: Keiji Mutoh) did an interview with Tokyo Sports, which TNAInsider has translated to roughly mean, "...a famous promotion overseas asked me to partner. I will be going there to talk."
It is not likely Mutoh will be meeting with WWE, as the promotion is very small at this point, and likely not on Vince McMahon or Triple H's radar. Ring of Honor has a long-standing relationship with several talents from New Japan Pro Wrestling.
The most likely outcome is that Mutoh is in talks with Dixie Carter and TNA to trade talent. TNA Wrestling has partnerships all over the world, including AAA in Mexico where many of their talents go to perform. There were actually talks between TNA and the former All-Japan President in 2007 that did not come to fruition. If a deal could be reached, the agreement could be great for TNA, who has had noticeable struggles with budget cuts and scheduling performers for live shows recently, as they might be able to exchange talent with the budding promotion without signing expensive contracts.
