“#August1Warning” Backstage News On Who The Mystery Man Is

There has been a lot of discussion as to who the mystery man behind the “#August1Warning” video is since the clip first appeared on the official TNA YouTube channel. Several TNA stars have commented on the clip, and fans have been guessing who’s behind the video since Friday.

Apparently one of the leading candidates is former TNA X-Division Champion Low Ki. According to one source, however, the former “Senshi” is absolutely not the voice behind the mysterious video clip.

Another top guess is former NWA Champion Adam Pearce. Pearce has been making references to August 1st on his official Twitter account since the video first premiered. While it could be a coincidence that Pearce is simply feeding into, it’s certainly possible he could be the guy as his TNA Gutcheck played out in a way that would leave the door open for an organic return to TNA storylines.

Another top choice is Jeff Jarrett. Apparently the only active TNA wrestler following the “#August1Warning” mystery man is the co-founder of TNA Impact Wrestling himself.

Other guesses, for those interested, include Hardcore Holly and John Morrison.

This Friday, on TNA Impact Wrestling, the guessing will cease, and the man will reveal himself. Until then, TNA promises to reveal a clue if the initial “#August1Warning” video reaches 250,000 views on their official YouTube channel.

    Ha, there’s no way it’s John Morrison. It’s either Pearce or Holly. I wouldn’t rule out Jarrett, though… uh oh, IMMORTAL!

  • Stew-ED!

    Low Ki, now that’s what I’m talking about.

  • Mr. Honesty

    There would absolutely no gain from signing Hardcore Holly

    • Adam-Michael

      or Low Ki… or John Morrison… or anybody…. if Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Mr Kennedy, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, The Dudleyz, ect all being on the show at once couldn’t get even a 2.0 I don’t think it matters who they hire anymore, they will never be successful

      That’s what I said too. That head and those ears are almost unmistakable. If That’s not him, than I’m a purple frog from mars.

  • Dan Kincaid

    What if the Youtube video doesn’t hit 250,000 views?

    • Adam-Michael

      IT WON’T…… lol the sad thing is, they have only just scrapped the 150,000 mark and I doubt it will climb any higher anytime soon…. yet they are already promoting the next clue…. so TNA are already backing out of their original plan, it was just a ploy to get fans to help them get paid by youtube if they get lots of hits on their video as they are that desperate for money lol so sad

      OH MY GOD!!!

      • BitchAssPwnez


  • Andres0082

    If they make the announcement on a podium using a laptop i swear i will riot…

  • Mr D

    Its batista

    • ??Austin??

      Batista is acting now. He would return to WWE before TNA.

  • pwnez

    Lets face it, it’s going to be a letdown once they reveal who it is.

    • Pozessed

      I dunno… They did catch us out when they said a big signing and it was Rampage Jackson. Maybe they could surprise us again? Because they did release a lot of people so they could maybe afford quite a big name.

      • pwnez

        They still have to pay Rampage so I doubt they could afford yet another big name. That’s pretty much why they released so many wrestlers so they can pay Rampage his bloated salary.

        • Forceton Banfodder

          It’s probably Jeff Jarrett to “take” back his company or some such joke.

          • Ninjastar

            hopefully it is, TNA was much more watchable when he was there running it,

        • Ninjastar

          ok how many times you gonna say this??? “They gotta pay Rampage’ thats not the reason why they released so many wrestlers , you don’t know that and you don’t know how much they’re paying him, so shut up about that, ‘Mr. thinks he knows it all’

          • pwnez

            You’re honestly going to sit there and think for one second that TNA isn’t paying Rampage a boat load of money? You know about TNA’s financial problems so how about putting two and two together? Needing to pay Rampage + releasing a bunch of guys TNA never used = money going towards his paycheck.

            Warrior making a Surprised entry this year in the rumble

            Remember making a complete a** of yourself? Trying to delete your comment because everyone attacked you for being stupid? How about you do that again, LOL!

      • Adam-Michael

        they would of caught us… if it wasn’t leaked weeks in advance already… we wasn’t really caught out we was more pissed off that they would waste money on a guy with no wrestling background and he has no had a match and probably never will. fire your wrestlers to pay a famous guy who has not put a single extra eye on the product, GENIUS!

    • Michael Carter

      They released this video on TNA’s youtube. Didn’t even air on impact. How can this be a letdown? It’s an internet promo for a debuting/returning wrestler, probably Adam Pearce.

      • pwnez

        Yeah and? TNA wrestlers are still commenting on the video so why does it matter if it aired on impact or not?

        • Michael Carter

          Because it’s a web-based promo that didn’t even make television. They gave this angle no tv time and a 6 day build. How could that possibly be a letdown? Am I saying it will be good? No. But letdown? Please.

          I get what you are trying to get across, you just had a horrible way of saying it. Either you haven’t followed TNA in the past couple of weeks and assumed they were hyping this angle, or you are expecting way too much out of this simple web video. Which is it?

          • pwnez

            Simple, if fans are expecting a surprise and they end up being disappointed that is considered a letdown. It has nothing to do with being on television or not.

            I don’t get how it’s a horrible way of saying it. I’m not expecting anything whatsoever, it’s TNA we’re talking about. What i’m saying is that fans are going to make a big deal out of it just to find out that it was a waste of time.

          • Michael Carter

            Exactly what I thought. You’re making way too big of a deal out of this nothing little angle.

          • pwnez

            “I’m not expecting anything whatsoever, it’s TNA we’re talking about.”

            Learn to read, dude.

          • bitchgettold

            no its big because they said in one video he would beat batista and chris Jericho so only someone that’s good will be there so if its like someone like sharkboy let down it is a trending topic and it dnt need to be on t.v

      • Adam-Michael

        it’s going to be that sucky that they never even bothered to advertise it on their own show…. just about sums it up really….

    • Juan Diego Gomez Sanchez Perez

      No way! It’s going to be either Marty Jannetty or the Berzerker coming out of retirement!

  • Nullspace

    It’s going to be Vince, he finally bought them out.

  • Tookie

    TNA has got people buzzing about this mystery man thing so they have definitely accomplished their goal. As for who it is, I’ll watch Thursday and find out. Watch the show and let everything play out before you pass judgement.

  • Roger Penland

    My faith in TNA faltered just before Aces & Eights debut.
    I’ve only watched ANYTHING TNA related since that time, (Sabin finally winning the TNA World Championship, and I think, well, actually only that since Aces & 8’s debut.)
    they’ll have to fix all of the money problems, and shock me by signing a huge name. until that time, I’ll just follow “the dirtsheets” for TNA news.

  • Forceton Banfodder

    Does anyone really care? Seriously?

  • bri

    its low ki I don’t care what this site says.

  • Wrestling Prince

    Oh God Please Let It Be John Morrison

  • NoNonsense

    This is pure rubbish its just another poor attempt by TNA to utilize Twitter & social media as a whole, Genuinely could not care less who it is the way TNA is working these days it would likely end up being a returning for the umpteenth time Matt Morgan or a recently released DOC.

  • TheWrestingGuy

    just slow the audio from the vid down in a video editor you soon know who it is ;)

  • Oliver_Twisted

    This Friday, on TNA Impact Wrestling, the guessing will cease, and the man will reveal himself.

    Umm yeah, Friday is August 2nd. TNA is on Thursdays.

  • Drmgiver

    Why has no one but me mentioned the most OBVIOUS. Alex Shelley.

    • Forceton Banfodder

      Because he’s currently signed with NJPW?

  • Alex Minshull

    I’m sorry but its obviously Roy Jones Jr think about it doesn’t work for impact (check!) doesn’t work for spike tv (check!) has a problem that needs to be solved (Rampage Jackson – rumours of these 2 competing in a boxing match thus if true will do most of their promoting on impact & will give newly signed jackson some work considering is on high wage thus needs to be utilised gives him legit rival till ready for Angle too, so check!)

  • DigitalWWE
