July 31, 2014
Vince Russo
Through Twitter, Vince Russo revealed that he was completely done with TNA now. He stated that the company had asked him to take a break, but he opted to leave instead. There had been rumors floating around that he was secretly working for the company, and this basically confirms that the rumors were indeed true. The belief among fans is that Russo's involvement played a part in Spike not renewing Impact Wrestling.
July 30, 2014
Dixie Carter
While a lot of fans bashed TNA for paying big bucks to Hulk Hogan over the years, his true value is coming out as Dixie Carter is having some trouble trying to secure a new television deal for Impact Wrestling. Hogan's name value helped open a lot of doors in business for the company, and his absence has made it a bit harder to sell networks on their product.
July 29, 2014
Dixie Carter
Since rumors broke out about Spike TV canceling Impact Wrestling, TNA officials had to react quickly to prevent their performers from panicking. Dixie Carter and her staff sent out emails to the wrestlers to let them know that the rumors were not true. She reiterated to the crew that negotiations were still ongoing with the network, and the show should remain on television.
July 29, 2014
Dixie Carter
In a landscape changing bit of news, it is now being reported by TMZ that Spike TV officials have informed TNA that they will not be renewing their television for Impact Wrestling, which means that Dixie Carter and company are now scrambling to find a new home. People in the industry know that without a national television deal, it is hard for a company to maintain and grow.
July 28, 2014
Dixie Carter
TNA might have finally found a formula that works with these latest episodes of Impact Wrestling. The shows taped in New York City have been drawing in a much better audience than normal. Dixie Carter and her crew are said to be quite pleased that they're coming close to reaching 1.5 million viewers a week now. Something like this may entice management to change up their booking style.
July 26, 2014
Rob Terry
Even though he is now back in TNA, Rob Terry still continues to work for other wrestling promotions. Thanks to the new taping schedule for Impact Wrestling, he is able to work shows in Europe in early August. At these live events, he will be working under his real name as opposed to being under a mask like he is in TNA.
July 25, 2014
Austin Aries
For those that missed Impact Wrestling this week, Austin Aries defeated Seiya Sanada to capture the TNA X Division Championship. Since the match was taped before Sanada had a chance to sign a new contract with TNA, the belief is that his potential departure was one of the reasons behind the title switch. Aries also announced that he would be cashing in the belt to get a shot at the world heavyweight champion at Destination X.
July 11, 2014
Dixie Carter
You can expect to see more of Seiya Sanada on Impact Wrestling over the next few months. The former TNA X Division Champion has decided to sign another contract with Dixie Carter that will ensure that he remains in the United States until at least the end of the year. Sanada also has a deal with the Great Muta, so he will be venturing back overseas for tours with Wrestle-1 as well. The rumored deal has been finalized.
July 7, 2014
Angelina Love
For those that missed Impact Wrestling this week, Gail Kim is the new TNA Knockouts Champion after defeating Angelina Love in a match. Rumors are floating around that the company made the title switch because they want to use the belt to enhance an upcoming program between Gail and the returning Taryn Terrell. Some feel that this will lead to TNA giving the belt to Taryn before the end of the year.
July 4, 2014
Dixie Carter
For a short period of time there, Tommy Dreamer and Dixie Carter worked online wrestling fans into believing that there was real backstage heat between the two. That led many to wonder if Dreamer was still going to be working for TNA. At the recent Impact Wrestling taping, Dreamer continued to work as a backstage agent for the company. The belief is that he will remain in that role for the foreseeable future.
June 29, 2014
Matt Hardy
On the independent wrestling circuit, Matt Hardy requires a $1500 paycheck for each appearance. The promoter also has to pay for his hotel and airfare. Plus, Reby Sky gets an additional $300 for appearing as well. Since TNA really wanted Hardy to help boost interest in the latest series of Impact Wrestling episodes, the company opted to pay him twice his asking price.
June 29, 2014
Kurt Angle
On Impact Wrestling this week, Kurt Angle was revealed as the new Director of Wrestling Operations for TNA. The move was designed to keep the former world heavyweight champion on television and relevant while he recovers from his injuries. Since Angle still has a high name value in the industry, his presence really helps TNA with their marketing efforts.
June 27, 2014
Dixie Carter
Much has been made online by fans about TNA not being able to draw in big crowds for their live events. The recent Impact Wrestling shows in Bethlehem, however, managed to draw in more than 1000 fans each night. Dixie Carter and company are said to be quite pleased with the results and want to return to the area more frequently. However, the company is pretty much booked up until the fall.
June 27, 2014
Ethan Carter
Things did not go exactly as planned for Ethan Carter on Impact Wrestling last night. The TNA star was busted open by an errant shot from a trash can. Carter was taken to a New York City hospital, so that doctors could give him a dozen staples to close the wound. The belief is that he will not be missing any of the upcoming episodes, but he might just be used in segments instead.
June 27, 2014
Bobby Lashley
After being given some time off of television, where his character was serving a story line suspension, Bobby Roode made his much anticipated return to Impact Wrestling this week. The former TNA champion came back to save Eric Young, who had just lost the world title, from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley. Roode received a warm reception from the audience.
June 19, 2014
Bobby Lashley
In a surprising move, Bobby Lashley walks away from Impact Wrestling this week as the next world heavyweight champion in TNA. He was given a title shot against Eric Young, who defended the belt earlier in the night against Kenny King. With the odds stacked against him, Young put on a good effort, but in the end, Lashley proved to be too much. A spear and a pin ended the match.
June 19, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Since the company is hoping to generate some buzz, TNA has announced that Matt Hardy will be making his return to Impact Wrestling to team up with his brother, Jeff Hardy. The duo will forever be remembered as one of the most popular tandems in professional wrestling history, and they still have a good amount of people interested in them.
June 16, 2014
Brutus Magnus
There's a pretty long list of wrestlers who have gotten into acting over the years. You can add Brutus Magnus to that group, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion has been seeking out opportunities in Hollywood as of late. With his look and weekly exposure on Impact Wrestling, he has a bit of an edge over new actors in the industry.
June 12, 2014
Angelina Love
One of the reasons why TNA decided to put Angelina Love and Velvet Sky back together again was because they have been consistently able to draw in strong numbers for Impact Wrestling. This past episode, however, drew really low numbers. While some may be jumping to conclusions, it is being said that TNA officials are simply chalking it up as an anomaly.
June 12, 2014
Edge
Rumors of CM Punk returning soon have heated up again this week, and Alberto Del Rio appears to be the culprit.

For public relations reasons, Del Rio, who did much of the interview partially in character, stated that he believes that Punk will be back, but he also stated that he does not know when. This caused a lot of fans to believe that Punk would be back in WWE again.
June 27, 2014
Edge

March 19, 2001
Dixie Carter
Rumors are floating around right now that Vince McMahon would be interested in purchasing the TNA library to add to his WWE Network. It could simply just be all speculation right now, as the company has been focused on cutting back their spending because of how much money has been lost over the last several months. Obviously, no negotiations have taken place since Dixie Carter is still trying to find a new television deal for Impact Wrestling.
July 29, 2014
Matt Morgan
"If it's true that Spike TV doesn't renew their deal with TNA, it's a double edged sword, in my opinion. They were and are atrociously bad at advertising the show whatsoever. I never used to see us advertised except maybe an hour before Impact Wrestling started. Not acceptable. The most annoying part when I was still wrestling there was I'd see Bellator constantly advertised, and we were doing better numbers at the time. Hell, even Manswers got better public relations by the network than we did. The bad side of the sword is that it obviously takes a ton of TNA's revenue away that they counted on to pay the wrestlers. For the company's future, I think the further they get the hell away from Spike, the better the company will be. That's just my opinion obviously." - Matt Morgan on the rumors that Spike TV is canceling their television deal with TNA
July 28, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract.

June 26, 2014
Gene Snitsky

May 27, 2014
Bobby Roode
For story line purposes, MVP has suspended Bobby Roode for his actions on the latest episode of Impact Wrestling, where the former world heavyweight champion confronted MVP about a title shot.

Prior to joining the company, MVP specifically listed Bobby Roode as someone that he wanted to work with.
May 14, 2014

Frankie Kazarian
Since the two sides could not come to an agreement on a new contract, Frankie Kazarian finished up his stint with TNA this week by working a pair of taped Impact Wrestling episodes.

May 12, 2014

Randy Orton
"I was out there with Edge and Randy. It was a 2 segment match and at some point during the match Randy rolls out of the ring. I go over to him and check on him and he proceeds to tell me that his shoulder is out and he canít get it back in or move it. So, I tell him to stand up against the ring post, he holds on to his dangling arm, and I shoved his shoulder up against the ring post, heard a click, and it went back in. I told him he was all set and to get back in there and help my dude. His reaction was half hot and half relieved and half still not even clear as to what was going on (I was never good at fractions)." - Lita on helping Randy Orton through an injury
February 14, 2014
Christian
The feeling within the company is that Christian will be leaving WWE after his current contract expires.

Ryback

"And I really wish Edge were still here. It killed me when I was out injured and he ended up having that final match with Alberto Del Rio. He was there while I was with the Nexus and he was just such a joy to be around. He's a good human being and just knew so much. He was always helping. Its guys like that that I wish were around still."

- Ryback on the retirement of Edge

January 12, 2014
Edge

"We are thinking of making you guys the new 'Midnight Express. I just went, 'Oh, no. Anything new, whatever it is, it's not going to work.' That (idea) was doomed for failure right away. What are you going to say? That's brutal… a horrible idea, and I know Sean (Morley) felt the same way. We were like, this is not good, but we'll make it work and be a kick-ass tag team no matter what they call us; we'll do good with this."

January 5, 2014
Edge

"Then finally when I signed my deal deal, my very first deal, they also paid all of my college fees as a bonus. I think I owed like 40 grand, which they didn't have to do, I always felt was very, very cool of JR to do. He was like we're going to take care of your college, by the way. I was like oh, because that had been hanging over my head while I had been trying to just get somewhere and make it. I was like oh, man. I got this 40 grand that's over my head and I'm making 50 bucks on this show. Cool, now I'm making 210, but that's not going to chip away at 40 grand. So they took care of that when I signed my deal."

January 2, 2014
Cody Rhodes

"In the past I've had many partners and I'm trying eventually to get to that elusive 12-championship reign that Hall of Famer Edge had. That statistic alone makes me feel really good about my tag and singles career that I'm able to do this and who knows how long it's gonna last with my brother Goldust and where it's gonna end up, but it certainly is a wonderful spotlight for him and I. We've had a lot of luck with the matches we've been putting on as of late. And that's a credit to those guys too, the Usos like you mentioned, to be the fundamental cornerstone match of a pay-per-view like Survivor Series, to have the elimination match. I feel strongly that we can go in and steal the show away from these other matches, these other great matches."

November 24, 2013
Edge

"And then Edge I will always respect. He showed me psychology, how to work in the ring, helped with my promos, and how to work with the cameras.Visit Wrestling Inc. He took me under his wing and made me feel like I was his partner. He really built my confidence and made me believe that whatever I did out there would be great. He really believed in me and I think that's why we got to stay together for so long."

July 29, 2014
Heath Slater
When Heath Slater and Titus ONeil teamed up on an episode of Smackdown earlier this month, many fans assumed that WWE had just thrown two guys together for the sake of the match.

This should move them closer to the long rumored match at Summerslam 2014. The belief is that this also gives the company an opportunity to showcase Daniel Bryan and capitalize on the fame that he recently picked up by detaining a burglar.

Goldberg
It looks like the longstanding real life backstage heat between Goldberg and Scott Hall has now ended. The disdain between the two sides started when both were working in WCW. Goldberg has publicly stated that Hall was unprofessional and careless in the ring. The two of them were spotted together at a wrestling convention in Arizona recently, and they appeared to be cordial with one another.

John Cena
WWE ran a live event on Friday in Dallas, and they initially drew in fans by advertising that John Cena would be working the show. However, the heavyweight champion picked up a part in a movie and was forced to miss the event, which prompted management to offer full refund to fans in attendance. It is being said that only a small amount of people bothered to leave the building.

Colt Cabana
Got some bad news if you're a fan of the Colt Cabana podcast. The former WWE star revealed that his web server has been hacked by malicious bots. He is having trouble finding help to resolve the issue, which started a couple of days ago. Cabana recently landed a pretty big guest when legendary commentator Jim Ross agreed to do an interview for his show.

Batista
News coming out of Comic Con is that a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy has already been set. For WWE fans, that means that Batista will need more time off to work on the film. No word yet on whether or not he plans to remain in the professional wrestling industry since his movie career is moving forward, however. Depending on the success of the first film, Batista could land other roles in Hollywood, which would entice him to leave WWE.

Tensai
With his in ring career fully behind him now, Tensai has been slowly gaining power backstage in WWE. He impressed management with his ability to function as a color commentator. Now, he has convinced them to let him have a bigger part in the company by training the developmental wrestlers. WWE likes the fact that Tensai has worked overseas and is familiar with a lot of different styles of wrestling.

Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon has another big headache to deal with, as his company is being hit with a class action lawsuit. The claim is that WWE purposely misled investors about their ability to secure a much better television deal with the network than the contract that they eventually signed. The promise of a bigger television deal was reportedly the reason why a lot of investors sank money into WWE, causing their stocks to soar to record levels.

Brie Bella
While he is already revered by WWE fans, Daniel Bryan has now become a real life hero. The former world heavyweight champion and Brie Bella were coming home when they noticed that their front door was open. Upon realizing that they were being burglarized, Bryan immediately pursued one of the thieves and put him into a rear naked choke before police officers arrived on the scene to arrest him.

Ric Flair
In an attempt to get as much out of his name value as possible, WWE has been utilizing Ric Flair during live events as a special guest referee. The hope is that his appearance will help convince some fans to attend the show. As of right now, he has been booked on a couple of shows throughout the summer in this particular role. No word yet on what WWE plans on doing with him on television, though.
