To make Bound For Glory even more of a special event, TNA has decided to bring in a third commentator to join Elijah Burke and Josh Mathews. The two of them teased the mystery announcer through social media. No credible leaks on the identity have surfaced, but there is a ton of speculation as usual. The third man might only be used on pay per view and not on Impact Wrestling.

In a rather interesting development, reports have surfaced that TNA has informed their performers that they are going to be taping some content in India later on this year. The belief is that Dixie Carter might even do an episode of Impact Wrestling in that country. This comes as an interesting move because it has long been rumored that Destination America wants them to only tape episodes in the United States.

In case you missed Impact Wrestling this week, Ethan Carter fired Jeff Hardy because he refused to obey his command. That has led to speculation within the internet wrestling community that he could be leaving TNA. That is not the case at this moment. The segment was being done to generate interest, which it has, and to set up a big match between Hardy and Carter later on. Hardy is still under contract to Total Nonstop Action.

In a move that doesn't come as a shock to many, Kenny King has apparently left TNA. No details have been revealed, but he showed up at the ROH pay per view this week. His previous contract allowed him to work Impact Wrestling episodes and on independent wrestling shows that are not being televised. Showing up in Ring of Honor is a sign that he is no longer working for Total Nonstop Action.

While nothing has been officially confirmed, there is speculation circulating that TNA has signed a contract extension with Destination America. It is said to be a short term deal, so that the two sides can continue negotiations without having to take Impact Wrestling off the air. The belief is that the network wants a more favorable deal with Dixie Carter because advertisers simply are not biting.

Since their television contract is expiring soon, TNA is shopping Impact Wrestling to various networks. They are trying to gauge interest in their weekly wrestling show. That does not mean that they are completely done with Destination America. Dixie Carter is still negotiating a new deal with the network. However, it is just a smart move to see what other offers are on the table.

In case you missed Impact Wrestling this week, Gail Kim is once again the Knockouts Champion. She defeated Brooke Tessmacher, Awesome Kong and LeiD Tapa to capture the belt. The belief is that TNA is rewarding her for her years of loyalty and hard work. Since she is closer to the end of her career than the beginning, the natural assumption is that this might be her final reign ever as champion. Gail is now on her fifth run.

Throughout most of this year, the internet wrestling community was under the assumption that Destination America was going to be canceling Impact Wrestling in September. The month is already here, and no announcement has been made by the network. Dixie Carter revealed during a recent interview that TNA is under contract until the end of the years. Negotiations for 2016 are ongoing, she said.

Apparently, there may be some backstage heat between Devon and TNA. While responding to a fan through social media, he asked the person to not use the word impact, which of course is a reference to Impact Wrestling, because it brings up a lot of bad dreams. The angst could be due to the fact that management opted to not bring him back when his contract expired.
