TNA Misses #August1Warning/YouTube Goal, New Jack Incident, Benoit Film

-TNA Impact Wrestling recently promised to reveal a “clue” as to who the “#August1Warning” mystery-man was upon reaching 250,000 views on the initial video released on their official YouTube channel. As of 12:00pm E.T. on Thursday, the first “#August1Warning” video on TNA’s YouTube channel has reached 219,083 views. Whether or not TNA planned on releasing a new video everyday leading up to Impact Wrestling tonight on Spike TV when they first launched the online angle is unknown. One would assume the company changed plans as the online angle picked up momentum, as it would be unrealistic to expect to reach 250,000 views on a video with three additional follow-up videos being released, devaluing the significance of the original.

-ECW original New Jack had a scare when he passed out at a club recently in Atlantic City while drinking alcohol. His blood pressure was said to be alarmingly high. As a result, New Jack ended up in a local emergency room. New Jack claimed he had stopped taking his required medication, which is a bad idea he claims he won’t be repeating.

-According to the latest reports, the Chris Benoit “Crossface” biopic is expected to begin filming in 2014. Producers of the movie are currently speaking with actors regarding specific roles, however official casting won’t be in the serious stages for another couple of months.
