ROH PPVs Pulled From Canada, Former WWE Star Retiring, The Bussey Bunch

source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— Ring of Honor pay-per-views were recently pulled from airing in Canada because buys were practically non-existant. One of the major cable carriers only had three dozen (36) PPV buys for a recent show. In comparison, TNA has had as low as a few hundred PPV buys for their most recent shows. WWE and UFC are pretty much the only companies to do any PPV business in Canada these days. Furthermore, one person posted a new thread on this news on the official Ring of Honor message board, and was swiftly banned. The thread was deleted as well.

— David Heath a.k.a. Gangrel, 38, has been telling people that he’s retiring this year. He made his wrestling debut in 1988. He’s now working in the adult entertainment business as a movie director.

— After the two-hour premiere of the “The Bussey Bunch” garnered a 0.26 cable rating, TLC canceled the show scheduled for January 29 without letting anyone know and axed the series all together. They said since 70% of TLC’s audience is female, a wrestling reality show didn’t fit on their station.
