As soon as word spread that Mickie James was making a big announcement on Impact Wrestling later on this week, rumors started to spread that the popular Knockout was going to be announcing her retirement. That is definitely a possibility as she is now a mother. However, TNA could be pulling a swerve by having her announce something entirely different. It could end up being something as simple as Mickie signing a new contract.

Another step forward has been taken by Jeff Jarrett and GFW. An announcement has been officially made about an upcoming tour this summer. The promotion will hold shows at various minor league sports stadiums across the country. Jarrett has already secured several dates for Global Force Wrestling, and he is still negotiating more shows as well. The company is expected to announce some recognizable names for their roster soon.

If you ever hear Tommy Dreamer saying that he is going to do something, then you should believe wholeheartedly that he is going to put his best efforts into making it happen. The legendary ECW star has taken a huge step forward for House of Hardcore. An official announcement has been made that the promotion will start airing shows on Fight Network. The deal is for eight episodes with an option to extend that even further in the future.

After finding a degree of success in the United States, Tommy Dreamer is taking his House of Hardcore international. The announcement has been made that the next show will take place in Toronto. That is a pretty bold move for the promotion. Since they have been consistently packing the house, the smart bet would be that they do just fine in Canada. A really great showing could lead to even more shows being held in the country.

Since there has been no announcement, a lot of fans are under the assumption that Jeff Jarrett is not working on his roster. That is simply not the case. It has now been revealed that GFW has reached out to several of the top independent wrestlers to negotiate deals with them. Some have already signed, but Global Force Wrestling is not ready to make the announcement just yet. They want to build a deeper pool of talent first.

Tommy Dreamer has been teasing a major surprise for his next House of Hardcore show. Some details have been leaked, and it sounds like it is something huge. The ECW legend has been working on securing a very surprising venue. Some have already started speculating that it will be a bigger arena than the ones that he has already used. There are also talks that the date of the show will be quite a shock as well. Announcement is coming on Monday.

With fans eagerly awaiting every new announcement, Jeff Jarrett has revealed that he has been in negotiations with three different television networks in regards to airing a weekly show for GFW. The former world heavyweight champion is already planning on taping shows in June, so that means that a deal will more than likely be closed by then. Jarrett did not reveal the names of the network, which is customary in the business.

In a sign that the company might be more popular overseas than in the United States, TNA is reportedly about to announce that they are going to be doing major tours in China, India and Australia. Word going around is that the deals are finalized for the first two countries, but the front office is just waiting to complete the contracts for the third one before making the big announcement. Dixie Carter is taking a pretty bold step here.

After the shock of her retirement announcement wore down a bit, the internet wrestling community then began to speculate about the reason why AJ Lee was leaving her dream job in WWE so soon. One of the more discussed reasons was that the diminutive diva is pregnant. That appears to be unlikely, as the front office would never allow her to work at Wrestlemania and the following Monday Night Raw in that condition.

Even though it was something that has been discussed over the past year, AJ Lee has surprisingly decided to retire from WWE. The announcement comes shortly after she worked her final Wrestlemania match. Some have stated that she had lost a lot of passion for the business due to several things. Others are stating that she is retiring because it would help resolve some of the relationship issues she is having with CM Punk.
