As some of you may have seen on Impact Wrestling, Taryn Terrell did a heel turn and introduced a new stable called the Dollhouse (with Mia Yim and Marti Belle). The trio attacked Awesome Kong to help Taryn retain the belt. That has led many to wonder what Kong would do next. There are rumors floating around that TNA is considering a face turn for her. She would debut a kinder and gentler version of her character.

It appears that TNA had a well written plan all along for Rockstar Spud. They purposely made him an annoying character when he first made his debut in the company. The goal was to make fans have strong feelings towards him, even if some of it was negative. In professional wrestling, no heat is the worst heat. The creative department was then deftly able to slowly convert his character into a lovable underdog that could be a serious threat in the ring.

This was before she made her professional wrestling debut in WWE. Management were aware of the existence of the pictures, but it was considered a non issue at the time. TNA is also aware of them, and they do not view it as something that will cause a negative reaction towards Brooke.

For whatever reasons, the former world heavyweight champion declined the offer.

Now that Impact Wrestling has made its debut on Destination America, all eyes are on the ratings to see how they would compare with the numbers that TNA was drawing on Spike TV. Total viewers drawn in for the episode were approximately 368,000, which is a lot less than on the previous network. However, those numbers were good enough to make professional the wrestling the most watched show on the network. That is a positive start for Dixie Carter.
