After his stint as the world heavyweight champion ended, many wondered if Austin Aries would be given another main event push by TNA. The answer to that was given on Impact Wrestling last night. Aries was awarded a shot at the title, thanks to a Feast or Fired briefcase. It is being said that management wants to give him a big push, even if he does not end up capturing the championship that Bobby Lashley currently owns.

In just the first month of the year, TNA has managed to create a buzz with the internet wrestling community. There is a ton of speculations about the status of Velvet Sky, who received a Feast or Fired briefcase on Impact Wrestling last night that caused the former Knockouts Champion to lose her job. Many are wondering if this is a legitimate thing or a work, as the company has parted ways with performers using this method before.

In an attempt to keep things from leaking to the internet wrestling community, TNA has opted to film the actual Feast or Fired unveiling behind closed doors at their headquarters. Austin Aries, Magnus, Robbie E, Rockstar Spud and Velvet Sky were the performers that were flown out for the taping. One of these performers will be fired, and it is most likely going to be one of the male performers. The other will receive title shots.

On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Dolph Ziggler was one of the wrestlers who were fired at the end of the show. That has actually caused some confusion within the internet wrestling community, where a good amount of fans are under the impression that he was really fired. This is simply a story line by WWE. To further sell the story, management has pulled him from live events this weekend. Ziggler generally works every weekend.

After losing public battles to CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio, WWE has decided to become a bit stricter with the wording of their contract. Management wants to ensure that the performers are unable to make a living after they leave the company, so there is now reportedly a new clause that prevents them from working in professional wrestling or UFC for an entire year if they are fired from WWE for disciplinary reasons. They also lose royalties as well.
