Much of the internet wrestling community is curious as to the booking style that Billy Corgan is going to be bringing to TNA. He more than likely has his favorites in mind, and they will be receiving a nice push. That could potentially move several of the upper tier guys down the ladder a bit.

It is being said that her next appearance could be at Hell in a Cell, as the pay per view is in Los Angeles. The world famous fighter really does want to get in the ring and try it out.

It appears that Bobby Lashley and Kurt Angle have come through for TNA. Their world heavyweight championship match was heavily promoted, and it increased viewership for that episode of Impact Wrestling by a very impressive margin of 20 percent. Executives at Destination America should be quite pleased with that, especially since they were the ones that pushed the front office to make Angle the centerpiece attraction again.
