Former TNA Talent Bubba “The Love Sponge” Admits To Ratings Tampering

TNA
Former TNA personality Todd “Bubba The Love Sponge” Clem was pulled off the air a few week’s ago in Florida after being accused of possible ratings tampering for his radio show. Billboard reported at the time that Nielsen was investigating the claims of ratings tampering in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater market, where Bubba’s show once aired.

Now, Clem has admitted to the tampering. According to the complaint, a mutual friend of Bubba’s arranged a deal with a listener to manipulate ratings in the Tampa area. Clem paid the person 300 per month (with bonuses of up to $400 monthly if certain goals were met) to manipulate the ratings. Bubba gave the person instructions to avoid detection while also not listening to key rivals radio shows.

Clem is now being sued for tampering with the ratings.

Opie and Jimmy of Sirius XM recently spoke the incident and then played the audio of Clem’s press conference of him admitting to tampering. You can listen to them discussing the case here:

    who F’n cares about this guy and what he does, and what does it have to do with wrestling other than the fact he was Hogan’s butt buddy

      It says right in the title, “Former TNA Talent…”

        Yeah, I know what it says and I also know how little he did in wrestling and for how short a time he did it, and I still say who F’n cares? he’s a loser, a liar, and a skank of a human being, actually I find it amazing he isn’t some promoter in wrestling or traffics in human slavery, but yeah I know it says in the title former TNA talent, and once again I say who F’n cares?

          “…what does it have to do with wrestling other than the fact he was Hogan’s butt buddy…”

          He is a former TNA talent, apparently. That answers your question.
