Some further details have been revealed about the upcoming tour of China that TNA has planned. Apparently, it is happening a lot sooner than expected. The company is planning on doing three shows during the latter half of May. MVP is being heavily promoted since some will remember him from his days in WWE. Gail Kim is Asian, so that helps with the demographic. Jeff Hardy is advertised for the show, but his availability could be an issue.

In order to help their performers make more money each year, TNA has decided to modify the rule that prevents them from working in other promotions. In the past, special permission was granted for the wrestlers to work on cards promoted by Tommy Dreamer, Jeff Hardy and Matt Hardy. Now, they are free to work internet pay per view events for smaller independent companies. ROH is still not an option for the wrestlers, however.

Since fans are still clinging on to the rumors that TNA has been late in paying performers, Matt Hardy has decided to explain the situation in the hopes that some will be smart enough to understand. He stated that the front office has never been late in paying he and Jeff Hardy. The former US champion even posted a photo of the monthly fee check, per match check, royalty check and another check that was included in the new contract he signed.

There was a lot of concern for Jeff Hardy after he did a very painful spot in a match with James Storm. When asked about changing his style, the former WWE champion stated that he is not planning on doing that. Hardy states that he knows his body better than anyone else, and he knows what he is still capable of. The North Carolina native also stated that if he was not able to perform like normal, then he would not stay with TNA.

While there are some fans out there that are bitter at him for leaving WWE, Jeff Hardy still has a large and loyal group of fans. When TNA announced that he was going to be headlining the latest episode of Impact Wrestling in a steel cage match with James Storm, many of those fans made sure to tune in. Hardy helped the company receive an increase in viewership this week. It further solidifies that name value is still the most important trait in wrestling.

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.
