According to PWInsider.com, despite WWE's continued claims that TNA is not competition to them, it's being said that when TNA announced it would be taking Impact on the road, WWE began calling a number of mid-sized venues and placing them on hold so TNA cannot book them for events.

It's also being said that if TNA does in fact run shows every Thursday night that WWE is considering running events on the same nights in the same areas, possibly in an attempt to lure fans away from TNA.

I find it weird they'd even react at all. It's not like TNA's currently troubling them in the ratings; hell, this week's RAW drew 4.81 million viewers, and that was without The Rock. Last week's (taped) Impact Wrestling, on the other hand: 1.58 million viewers.

When Raw went off air

Spoiler

I imagine it turns into a "tag" team Elimination Chamber match. Shield gave a good performance at TLC.


This video's apparently doing the rounds at the moment...

Note: After 5:12, it's just trailers/clips from his DVD.

Hogan uses a leg drop as a finisher. How innovative is that?

Rey, for example, one of the most innovated wrestlers of the time, will be remembered for just that. Innovation. More so in his WCW days. But that's it.

Does Triple H have a lot of power that maybe wouldn't have gotten him where he is? May be so. But to say his HIAC matches with Undertaker and Foley were just "good"......Come on.

The match everyone most remembers is when he got screwed. That's it. The rest were all sharpshooters (not saying that's a bad thing)

There is nothing childish about wanting to wipe out any possible "competition".

There is also the submission match with Stone Cold Steve Austin at WrestleMania 13, but yeah, that's pretty much it.

...Speaking of HHH, he and John Cena are both being advertised to appear on TV at the first Smackdown after WrestleMania, in Boston. The word is that will be after a match with Brock Lesnar at Mania.

Austin made that match memorable, not Bret.

What about the famous matches with Bulldog and Owen? He also had really great matches with Mr Perfect too. He was also the one who suggested the ladder match to Vince.

I'm not saying what he said about Triple H is exactly right but i don't think he should be dismissed as someone who had a couple of memorable matches.

Tonight, TNA President Dixie Carter appeared on Bellator Fighting on SpikeTV, and made the following special announcements:

-Carter revealed that TNA just re-signed Jeff Hardy to a new, long-term deal.

-Carter revealed the following dates and locations for Impact road tapings:

March 14th in Chicago, Illinois at Sears Centre Arena
March 28th in Jonesboro, Arkansas at ASU Convocation Center
April 11th in Corpus Christi, Texas at American Bank Center
June 6th in Atlanta, Georgia at Gwinnett Center

Aww, crap. :pinch: I read yesterday WWE.com put up his alumni profile, so I was hoping he was on the way out of TNA.

Dixie Carter's been teasing the signing of another WWE superstar to TNA with a couple of hints...

"The surprise in June will be involving a new talent with the company. His WWE contract expires after Wrestlemania, and we just happened to pick him up," Carter said.

"One last hint. The newest member to the TNA roster, debuting in June, is a guy who will "slither and strike" when the time is right."

So yeah, a lot of people are thinking it's Randy Orton. I bet she's trolling though, and it's Santino Marella. :p

I can't see either of those two going to TNA. Definitely not Orton.

Also, in what world is two years 'a long term deal'?

To my knowledge, the world of F1, and that's only if your name is either "Mark Webber" or "Felipe Massa". :p
