Over the last several weeks, John Gaburick and Dixie Carter have been going down their list and signing performers to new contracts. The latest person to close a deal is Rockstar Spud. He is now signed with TNA for at least another year. Spud is rather happy with the role that he has been given in the company. He was initially brought on board as comedy relief, but management kept their promise about turning him into an actual wrestler.

When Dixie Carter announced a new television deal with Destination America, a lot of changes were said to be in place when Impact Wrestling made its debut on the new network. One of the directions that TNA is headed is that their weekly television show will have more of a reality television feel to it. Cameras are going to be rolling from all angles. There are even talks that the wrestlers might break character in backstage interviews from time to time.

When the contract with Destination America had been signed and sealed, Dixie Carter wanted to reboot a lot of things about Impact Wrestling. One of the ideas being discussed was a potential return to the four sided ring. The reason why that topic was on the table was because there are still those within the company that believe that the traditional approach is still the best one. Plus, a lot of the wrestlers dislike it. The idea was eventually rejected.

During a recent interview, Dixie Carter was asked about comments that Vince McMahon recently made about his roster lacking ambition. In a very well thought out public relations response, Carter stated that she cannot comprehend a statement like that. She stated that she is very proud of every single wrestler in TNA. She feels that there is plenty of hunger from the performers. Several WWE stars are said to be upset about what McMahon said about them.
