Rabblecast Ep. 392 - Seth Rollins Exposed, TNA Ratings Increase, NXT News!

You have seen it happen before, when celebrities/performers take intimate photos of themselves or someone they are involved with and somehow those images get "leaked" online. The "future of the WWE", Seth Rollins is the latest victim of this type of scenario. Was his phone hacked? Did someone play a prank? More importantly, how will the WWE respond?

TNA has seen some success with their recent, Lethal Lockdown themed episode on Destination America. The concept, every match takes place inside of a steel cage. Ratings went up for the "number 2" wrestling promotion, but will it last? Also, can Jeff Hardy continue to beat up his body with crazy stunts? His fall from the cage was one of the most talked about moments when TNA originally taped this round of Impact Wrestling shows from the Manhattan Center.

Let's not forget about WWE's development center, NXT and their recent news. Triple H had some very revealing things to say about his vision for NXT and how things will move forward for those training for the opportunity to make it to RAW and Smackdown.
