TNA Impact Wrestling

The Pope (aka D’Angelo Dinero)has a special relationship with his fans: He beats his opponent to a pulp and the crowd roars their approval. “Let ’em roar,” says the TNA pro wrestler with a propensity for referencing himself in the third person. “The Pope needs to hear the fans. They’re our energy source.” The crowd goes especially nuts for his signature move — the DDE or D’Angelo Dinero Express — which basically involves taking a flying start before jamming his knees into the back of his opponent. “The fans know when they see that, the Pope is within three seconds of winning,” he boasts. TNA Impact Wrestling pivots on exactly that kind of audience interaction. In fact, the loudest fans get to go backstage to meet superstars like Dinero, Kurt Angle, A.J. Styles, and current TNA world heavyweight champ Bobby Roode. The World Tour slams down at the Akron Civic Theatre tonight at 6. Tickets start at $20 online, by phone, or at the box office; $50 lands you a spot at the pre-show meet-and-greet. See the website for details.
