A very positive week for TNA has now been marred a bit by some potentially negative rumors. Sources are saying that the Harris Brothers informed the production team that their latest checks are going to be a bit late. Management reportedly told the workers that if this arrangement was no longer working for them, then they would not be held back from seeking employment elsewhere.

A former tag team is returning to TNA, but it is not what you think it is. Reports have surfaced that the Harris Brothers are returning to the company. However, they will not be an active part of the roster. Instead, they will be teaming up to take over the production department for the company. Steve Small was the longtime Senior Director of Production, but he has decided to pursue a career with Teach For America, a passion of his.

In a very sad story, it has now been revealed that Brutus Beefcake has sunk so low in life that he has resorted to selling autographed photos of Hulk Hogan that have fake signatures. Hogan took to social media to warn fans that he was not the one that signed those. He also stated that he never gave Beefcake anything to sell. The two of them were once as close as brothers, but some backstage heat has gotten in between them since.

After several attempts at trying to get a contract with WWE, the Briscoes are said to be done with the promotion. They have come to accept that the company simply does not value them at the level that the brothers believe themselves to be. Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe are content with remaining in ROH for the rest of their careers. The former is receiving more backstage power, so the latter should have a good amount of job security.

It looks like the Briscoes are stuck in ROH. The two brothers went to WWE to see if they could get an offer, which they did. Mark Briscoe and Jay Briscoe allowed their current company the opportunity to negotiate. Ring of Honor gave them a higher offer because they desperately needed the two of them to stick around. The two then went back to World Wrestling Entertainment, but the company refused to budge on their original offer.

Apparently, WWE is still really bitter about the Young Bucks rejecting their offer last year. The brothers were asked to go in for a tryout because they had become one of the hottest acts on the independent wrestling circuit and internationally. However, Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson opted to remain free agents. Management is said to be furious because they are not used to performers not wanting to work for them.

A rather interesting omission from the upcoming tag team championship tournament in TNA is Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy. As of right now, the brothers have not been officially announced as entrants. From what we know, both guys are under contract to the promotion for at least another year, so that can be ruled out as a factor for their absence. Management could also be saving their announcement to build up the anticipation from the audience.

Those that watched Smackdown last night saw the return of Mark Henry. However, what might have been missed was a verbal jab at the Young Bucks while he was admonishing Roman Reigns for not showing respect to people. Henry also mentioned the fact that Reigns hasn't been anywhere, which many viewed as an attack on Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson. The brothers have bashed WWE for trying to take away the Bullet Club hand sign.

For quite some time now, rumors about the Briscoes signing with WWE have been floating around. The speculations are flying high once again. Reports have surfaced that the company has renewed their interest in signing Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe to a contract. The former is actually the current ROH Heavyweight Champion, so that would be quite a boost to the roster. Despite their talents, the brothers would still have to go through NXT.
