Eric Young
Prior to his injury, there were plans in place to have MVP winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from Eric Young. Since the company needed a heel champion to be the antagonist against Kurt Angle and his new on screen authority role, the belt went to Bobby Lashley instead. There are talks that TNA could try to figure out how to transfer the belt over to MVP soon.

Eric Young
A lot of fans are quick to point out the similarities between Eric Young winning the heavyweight championship and Daniel Bryan winning the heavyweight championship. However, people backstage in TNA are denying that there is a correlation. Company officials are standing by their stance that the move was done in order to surprise the fans.

Eric Young
Rumors have it that people backstage in WWE are amused by the fact that TNA put their world heavyweight championship around the waist of Eric Young. It is not so much a shot at Young, as many in the industry feel that he is a good worker and a nice person. The ridicule is more about how TNA went about with the story line of crowning him as champion.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Young and Jarrett have a long history together, and they remain on very good terms. Since he is a very good worker and well liked backstage, TNA would much rather he stay with them long term.
April 18, 2014
Eric Young
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.
April 14, 2014
Eric Young
While fans are shocked that Eric Young has captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, there are actually a couple of reasons why management went this route. For starters, they wanted to reward Young for his years of loyalty to the company. Secondly, they want to capitalize a bit on his mainstream success as of late.
April 12, 2014
Eric Young
Since TNA decided to shift Mr Anderson into a program with Sam Shaw, there is now a need to find an opponent for Bully Ray. Since most of the performers on the roster are already involved in a program, one of the ideas being tossed around is to have the former world heavyweight champion joining the program between Eric Young and Joseph Park.
February 24, 2014
Eric Young
Eric Young and Joseph Park, who worked under the mask as Abyss on Impact Wrestling this week, were heavily praised by TNA for their recent performance. Their hardcore match came off really well, both with the live audience and on television. Plus, their overall selling of the story line over the last few weeks have been better than expected.

Eric Young

John Gaburick, the former WWE executive who now has a lead role in TNA, reportedly has some backstage heat with Eric Young during one of the television tapings on the European tour. The two were arguing over the longevity of a spot filmed for Impact Wrestling.

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
Eric Young
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
Kenny King
Since MVP has a badly injured knee, TNA decided to change up the main event of Slammiversary 2014. Eric Young will still be defending the world heavyweight championship in a steel cage at the event, but he's now going to be doing so against two opponents. The winners of the respective matches between Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and Austin Aries will be challenging Young for the belt.
June 13, 2014
MVP
During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, MVP revealed that he was going to try to fight through the knee injury and work Slammiversary 2014. The former United States Heavyweight Champion is scheduled to challenge Eric Young for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at the pay per view. Management is still working on a backup plan in case his knee does not hold up, however.
June 11, 2014
MVP
Slammiversary 2014 takes place later on this month, and the main event might be in jeopardy. Originally, Eric Young was scheduled to defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against MVP, but the challenger suffered some sort of knee injury while working an independent wrestling show in England over the weekend. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but MVP was limping pretty badly.
June 1, 2014
Kenny King
In case you did not catch Impact Wrestling this week, Samoa Joe made his return to TNA. He received a bit of a pop as he came back to save Eric Young and Bully Ray from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley in the final segment of the show. Upon signing with TNA, MVP specifically mentioned Samoa Joe as a performer that he wanted to work against, so that feud could be happening soon.
May 30, 2014
MVP
For those of you that do not watch Impact Wrestling on a regular basis, MVP has done a heel turn. The former United States Heavyweight Champion has also given himself a shot at Eric Young and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary 2014 as well. Management pulled the trigger on the move, as they feel that MVP could be more valuable as an antagonist.

"I think if I shaved my beard I might lose both of my jobs. The beard is one of my things now and has been since 2009. I had a beard when it was considered weird. If I shave now people would not recognize me." - TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eric Young talks about a change he refuses to make because of television
April 29, 2014
Eric Young
In a sign that he still holds some value to the network, Eric Young has been given another television show. This time, it is called No Limits, and it is supposed to be a continuation of his Off the Hook: Extreme Catches show. Young will be going around the country, and trying out various extreme activities, such as learning how to be a lumberjack in the Smoky Mountains.
April 28, 2014
Eric Young
In the main event of TNA Sacrifice 2014, Eric Young was able to defeat Brutus Magnus to retain the world heavyweight championship. Young scored the pin fall victory after delivering two piledrivers and a top rope elbow drop. During the match, Magnus attempted to cheat by using a weapon to win the TNA title back, but the referee caught him.

Eric Young

April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Since he is now the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Eric Young is being given a bit of a gimmick change, as management wants to move him further away from the comedic character that he has portraying over the years. TNA wants fans to believe that Young is a credible champion. His Monster's Ball match against Abyss on Impact Wrestling was to aid that.

On Impact Wrestling last night, Eric Young shocked the world when he captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Here is a picture of the staff at Animal Planet, the network where Young hosts a fishing show, supporting their favorite wrestler.
April 11, 2014
Brutus Magnus
In an extremely shocking bit of news, Eric Young has defeated Brutus Magnus to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He had earned himself a title shot at the beginning of Impact Wrestling, where Young won a gauntlet match. Instead of waiting for the title shot, he demanded it on the same night. A piledriver sealed the pin fall victory for Young.
April 10, 2014
Eric Young
Since Kurt Angle is now injured and requires surgery, the match against Ethan Carter at TNA Lockdown 2014 has been canceled. However, Carter has now confirmed through Twitter that he will indeed be working the pay per view still. No word on who the replacement opponent may be at this time. An impromptu match with Eric Young is a possibility.
March 7, 2014
Brie Bella
Some crazy rumors are floating around right now about Nikki Bella and Brie Bella competing in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE is extremely unlikely to do this because they do want their female performers in gimmick matches that might cause severe injury, but the rumors have some merit because it was revealed by an insider who has accurately broken the news on a couple of things in the past.
September 29, 2014
Big Show
Considering how far down the ladder he has been dropped, it's easy to understand why there are a lot of rumors about possible backstage heat on Bray Wyatt. Speculations were high over the weekend because Wyatt lost cleanly in a match against Big Show, a performer that is not being pushed. A possible explanation for the loss is that WWE usually allows the baby faces to win at live events, in order to appease the audience.
September 28, 2014
Homicide
When TNA originally brought Homicide back into the mix, it was designed as something temporary. However, the veteran performer did such a good job at getting a reaction from the audience that management had no choice but to keep him around a bit longer. They changed up the stories a bit for him, and he ended up being given an X division title match against Samoa Joe.
September 26, 2014
Steve Austin
Some heavy speculations have arisen this week on the possible return of Steve Austin to WWE. Reports have surfaced that management has informed manufacturers to go heavy on products related to Stone Cold and informed distributors to prepare for a boost in merchandise coming through. No word yet on what Austin will be doing when he comes back, but there is a chance that it could just be a brief appearance.
September 26, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Some major trouble is reportedly brewing behind the scenes in WWE, as a new power struggle has just been revealed. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to take some power away from George Barrios and Michelle Wilson, two high ranking executives within the corporation. HHH and Stephanie are using the early failures of the WWE Network against Barrios and Wilson.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon reportedly has a rule about the cast of Total Divas. None of them are allowed to hold the championship while they are a part of that reality show. No word yet on why McMahon has that rule in place right now, but it is quite peculiar since WWE basically scripts a lot of their segments based on what is happening on Total Divas.
September 25, 2014
AJ Styles
While he has some resentment towards the company for letting him away, the door has not yet been completely closed on AJ Styles making a return to TNA next year. He enjoys working in Japan but would much rather be closer to his family at all times. Once Impact Wrestling secures a new home and the company can afford to hand out big contracts again, Styles could be one of the names brought back.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
The latest episode of Monday Night Raw was a prime example of just how hectic things are backstage in WWE. About an hour and a half before the show was to be aired live to a nationwide audience, Vince McMahon decided to scrap the entire show and write it all over again from scratch. That caused quite a frenzy because the writers were barely given enough time to finish the scripts for the wrestlers.
September 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Reports have surfaced that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to work Hell in a Cell 2014. The WWE champion has caused quite a headache for the front office. Management has to be selective about when they use him because they have to pay him accordingly. The creative department has a dilemma because they know that they cannot keep having Lesnar wrestle John Cena, and there's not a lot of performers on the roster that has enough name value to work with Lesnar.
September 25, 2014
Josh Mathews
Rumors spread rather quickly this week about Josh Mathews joining TNA when pictures of the announcer leaving the company headquarters appeared online. While no official confirmation has been made on the signing, the belief is that a contract has already been reached. While there is still a slight chance that he might be wrestling for the company, the widespread belief is that he is coming in as an announcer.
September 25, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.
September 24, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There is some disarray backstage in WWE right now as to what to do with the main event of Hell in a Cell 2014. Some think that John Cena and Brock Lesnar should have a title rematch in the gigantic steel structure. However, there are enough people who are opposed to the idea that management had to scrap all plans involving Lesnar and Paul Heyman on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
September 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
It appears that WWE might be done with the feud between Miz and Dolph Ziggler, two performers who were largely neglected by the creative department for a good period of time. Management wants to move Ziggler onto another challenge, and the name being tossed around the most is Antonio Cesaro. WWE is still high on Cesaro, even though he has not received a consistent push as of late.
September 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heating up that TNA will be making their long awaited announcement on a new television contract. Dixie Carter has been adamant all along about Impact Wrestling being able to remain on the air, and it looks like her team is about to finalize things. No word yet on which network the deal will be with, but it appears that Spike is not in the picture. WGN and Velocity are two of the rumored networks interested in bringing wrestling on board.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since Night of Champions 2014 took place over the weekend, a lot of fans were expecting Paul Heyman to make an appearance and gloat about how Brock Lesnar is still the WWE champion. However, Heyman was nowhere to be seen on Monday Night Raw. He was backstage at the event last night, but management opted against using him because they could not come up with something for Heyman and Lesnar.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While there is a possibility that WWE does a third straight match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar, there are those backstage that are pushing for Cena to be transitioned into a feud with Seth Rollins instead. That's why the story line of Rollins attempting to cash in at Night of Champions 2014 took place. The belief is that this program will help elevate Rollins into the main event scene.
September 22, 2014
Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Cody Rhodes
On Night of Champions 2014, Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the WWE tag team championship. Rumors are floating around that management felt that the twins had grown stale because they ran out of teams to defend the titles again. Plus, Rhodes has really been getting into his Stardust character, so the front office wants to see if the gimmick can pick up further steam with a championship push.
September 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
By now, everyone knows that Roman Reigns has been hospitalized and is forced to miss Night of Champions 2014. Seth Rollins needs a new opponent. One of the ideas being tossed around is to have Dean Ambrose making a surprise return at the pay per view and continue his feud with Rollins. Ambrose had taken a couple of weeks away from WWE to film a movie, but he finished up this weekend.
September 21, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
