Jamie Jones: Bully’s rant too much for TNA


— Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: Bully Ray is certainly living up to his name. The ringleader of TNA’s “Aces & Eights” was caught on camera at a show in Chicago last week hurling anti-gay remarks at several fans.

One of the fans recorded the distasteful diatribe. Ray has apologized and TNA official Dixie Carter denounced his actions.

• A top WWE executive said he believes pay-per-views will eventually be phased out. All but one of the pay-per-views would be shifted to the WWE network. Wrestlemania would remain as the sole pay-per-view.
