There are rumors floating around that the partnership between TNA and Wrestle 1 has come to an end. Much of the speculation stems from the fact that Seiya Sanada was released from his contract before it was set to expire in July. Interesting enough, Sanada has opted to remain in the United States instead of going back to work in Japan. Nothing has been confirmed from either the Great Muta or Dixie Carter at this point in time.

Names like Tatsumi Fujinami and Genichiro Tenryu have been discussed internally, and both are great candidates. One candidate who has been discussed and immediately dismissed is the Great Muta. The company respects his line of work, but they will not induct him while he is working with TNA.

During his latest business trip to the United States, the Great Muta did more than work a match on Impact Wrestling. He also did some scouting as well. The legend from Japan paid a visit to the wrestling school owned by Dory Funk Jr in Florida. Muta was looking for talented performers that might be interested in heading overseas and working for his Wrestle 1 promotion. Funk is a legendary figure in that country, so his students are valuable.
