And something surprising...

Impact Wrestling had 1.6 million viewers and scored a 0.5 rating share in adults 18-49, which represented an increase from last week's edition. Last week's show produced 1.3 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49.

Spike Dudley was there too. I laughed when Mike Tenay botched things up with him; Taz called him by his TNA name (Brother Runt), then Tenay immediately called him Spike. :p

Gotta say, bit of a shocker at the end of this week's show (Taz revealing himself as an Aces & Eights member, that is, not them crashing the party, which was too obvious); maybe we'll see the end of this section of Botchamania...

TNA has announced via Facebook that TNA Champion Jeff Hardy was pulled from the tour of the UK. The company claims it was an injury (and there will be an angle to explain it on the January 24 episode of Impact Wrestling) but it's actually because Hardy can't travel due to his legal problems.

Sting will replace Hardy on the tour. This means that unless Hardy is on the show through pre-taped vignettes or interviews, he will miss four weeks of Impact Wrestling TV. Hardy has been advertised for the tour since tickets went on sale eight months ago.

Here is the official announcement:

TNA IMPACT WRESTLING regrets to inform our fans in the UK and Ireland that Jeff Hardy will not be on the Road To Lockdown Tour, due to an injury sustained on the TNA IMPACT WRESTLING show on January 18.

However we are delighted to announce that ?The Icon' Sting will be replacing Jeff at the TNA live events in Dublin, Glasgow, Nottingham, Manchester and London.

Also appearing on all five shows will be global wrestling superstars including Kurt Angle, Bully Ray, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, James Storm, Magnus, RVD, Tara and Velvet Sky.

The Immortal Hulk Hogan and Brooke Hogan were recently added to the roster for TNA's TV tapings in Manchester and London.

The stars of TNA Wrestling: British Boot Camp ? Marty Scurll, Rockstar Spud and The Blossom Twins ? will also be appearing in Glasgow, Nottingham, Manchester and London.

Naughty Jeff.

He looks pretty badass with that title. I wonder if he will ever get the push he deserves. He and Wade should be holding the raw / smackdown titles.

Why does Otunga 'deserve' a push?

I'll give you Barrett, he's talented.

Well, Otunga does have a fair bit going for him. He's good on the mic, and he seems to have the natural ability to draw heat from the crowd just by appearing on the camera (which I like to call the Vickie Guerrero gift). He's pretty highly regarded in PWI as well; he won three awards in 2010 (Feud of the Year, and Most Hated Wrestler of the Year, both with The Nexus, and Rookie of the Year), and last year, he was #84 in the PWI 500, so that's a pretty big accomplishment. Oh yeah, he's also a former 2-time Tag Team Champion, and a 2-time Slammy Award winner, but those aren't as important.

When they aren't pushing the stupid "weak lawyer that is used to lose fights" he's a good wrestler, he's good on the mic and would be a good heel. There's quite a few that deserve a push that get held back so people like Cena and Orton can be top dogs. Another one I would vote for would be Drew McIntyre and I don't know why but I wouldn't hate the idea of santino holding the title even if it was only for a month lol

How about a day? That's all I'd ask for; Santino as World Heavyweight Champion for just a day. Hell, even a minute would do! :p

Adrian Neville (PAC) vs. Drew McIntyre (Drew Galloway) with Sheamus in the crowd in Real Quality Wrestling (RQW), back in I'm guessing around 2007, as it says it was before Sheamus was signed by WWE, and he went to RQW then.

I never knew Sheamus and Drew McIntyre had a big rivalry across the UK before they both went to WWE. Would love to see that rivalry reignited...

Sounds like you're going to be waiting quite a long time for anything to do with Santino. Unfortunately.

Yeah sucks he got injured. Also, Yoshi Tatsu is awesome.

So, any takers on whether Punk retains at RR or Rock wins it? Since WWE is going back and forth on it, I'm gonna say Punk will retain in some heely fasion, then lose it at EC.

I don't think anyone is holding Otunga back except for Otunga. Obviously Vince likes him. He gets mainstream press. But in the ring, he is below average. Yes, he has mic skills. Yes, he has a good look. Yes, he smashes out Jennifer Hudson. But thats about it.

I know. It'll never happen. Would be a good idea for an April Fool's joke though, the next time a RAW or SmackDown falls on April 1st. Which is actually this year. :p
