The next series of Impact Wrestling episodes being taped in May should be interesting ones. There are talks that Elijah Burke could be making his return to TNA during that point in time. He even teased it publicly on social media. Burke left the company more than two years ago and has remained active on the independent wrestling circuit. Despite being one of the best talkers in the business, WWE showed no interest in bringing him back on board.

Davey Richards is not the only professional wrestler saving lives. While he doesn't do it routinely like the TNA star, Vampiro has done the same thing this week.

The paramedics arrived, and the old man survived. The man legally known as Ian Hodgkinson was heavily praised.

Based on a vague exchange between the two on social media, a lot of fans are under the belief that Samoa Joe and CM Punk are going to be working a wrestling match against one another in the near future. They are no longer with TNA and WWE respectively. However, the odds of that happening are quite slim.

Despite persistent rumors within the internet wrestling community about it being true, nude photos of the extremely sexy Angelina Love have yet to surface online.

When word broke out that Bobby Lashley had suffered some sort of injury, the specifics were not immediately revealed. Fans only knew that it was bad enough for him to be forced to cancel a fight with Bellator but not bad enough that he would miss time from TNA events. Reports have now surfaced that the injury involves his hands. While doing MMA training, it would swell up considerably whenever he attempted to grapple or punch.
