    TNA could have done Suicide vs Homicide on a PPV due to how funny the idea of a match between two wrestlers with such names...

    I've posted several stories about TNA iMPACT and WWE's ECW and each's ratings this television season.

    I noted that because of the greater Household reach of Spike TV vs Sci-Fi, 97 million vs 93 million, that for some weeks now that iMPACT has been averaging a greater HH audience than ECW.

    Dixie Carter in a recent interview noted that Impact was beating ECW, and season to date she was right.

    Regardless, iPMACT's average rating remained lower than ECW's, until last week.

    As of last week iMPACT is not only ahead of ECW in Households delivered season to date, but in average season to date rating iMPACT now beats ECW too, but not by much.

    For the 27 weeks from Jan 5 - July 10, iMPACT's average rating is 1.204 and ECW's is 1.201 with iMPACT delivering approximately 1,167,880 HH to ECW's 1,116,930 HH, a 50,950 HH difference.

    Congratulations to TNA

    ESPN.com is reporting that former WWE star Bobby Lashley has officially signed with TNA Wrestling. In addition to stating that he will be continuing his MMA career, Lashley also said that he would be at this Sunday's "Victory Road" PPV.

    That's right ESPN, the channel that will use wrestling references, then crap on them and sometimes will only report when something bad happens in the world of pro-wrestling.

    This would be so sad if it's true.

    This past Wednesday morning, a caller phoned into The Bubba The Love Sponge Radio Show claiming that he worked for TNA Wrestling and reported that Karen Angle is currently living with Jeff Jarrett. The "employee" went on to say that Karen had moved herself and her children into Jarrett's home, and that upon hearing the news TNA President Dixie Carter became furious, and threatened to by Jarrett's part of the company and drive him out of the promotion. Bubba did not believe the caller, and later attempted to call Kurt Angle for comments on the situation but was unable to get ahold of him.

    For what it's worth, back in March, Kurt Angle appeared on The Howard Stern Show and told Stern that Karen had been having an affair with someone in TNA and would tell him that she was just hanging out with friends.

    Dot Net has confirmed reports that Jeff Jarrett was not at the pay-per-view on Sunday night. The crew was told that Jarrett is simply taking personal time away. However, the word in the TNA locker room is that Jarrett has been removed from television indefinitely.

    Meanwhile, Kurt Angle was grumbling about Jarrett to friends this weekend, and openly stated that Jeff had been pulled from television. Angle made it clear to people that he's not happy with Jarrett, and the widespread belief is that he's making a play for creative control of the company.

    According to sources, former WWE star Elijah Burke has signed with TNA Wrestling and will be debuting in the company soon with a new ring name.

    Burke had a tryout match with TNA back in late May in a match with former WWE developmental wrestler Shawn Spears who spent time briefly on the Smackdown brand.

    Both got rave reviews by TNA officials following their match. Jeremy Borash also hinted recently on his official Twitter page that "Elijah Burke" would not be coming to TNA, seeming to suggest that he would be coming in under a new name. Burke was released by WWE in October 2008 and has recently spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling (a former developmental territory for WWE) where he got his start.

    According to sources, TNA Creative team member Wayne Cowan (former wrestler Dutch Mantel) and TNA Agent Savio Vega have been released by TNA.

    Dutch Mantel was very close to Jeff Jarrett. He had been with TNA since 2003. His departure leaves the creative team without a veteran 'wrestling mind'. This is a big departure for sure.

    Savio Vega was brought in as an agent last year after Scott D'Amore's departure and had been working closely with the Knockouts. He was very close with Jeff Jarrett and Dutch Mantel as well.

    There are many who are questioning Jeff Jarrett's status with the company as well. These are both huge shakeups within TNA.

    If Dixie Carter buys TNA that would be crazy it would change TNA and Pro Wrestling completely most likely

    I agree JandSman.

    :
    The Wrestling Observer is reporting that several people backstage in TNA have recommended that the company offer creative jobs to guys like Paul Heyman and Gabe Sapolsky should Jeff Jarrett not return to the company in a creative role. It's being said, however, that Dixie Carter has informed several people in TNA that she is looking to go in a different direction and wants to hire a booker or several bookers with more of a Hollywood writing background.
    Sound familiar?

    He is officially a member of the roster. His debut will be in a major angle with Kurt Angle.

    PWinsider wrote:
    As we broke last night in the PWInsider.com Elite section, Nigel McGuinness is believed to have signed a two year deal with TNA.

    McGuinness approached the company after World Wrestling Entertainment rescinded their contract offer. WWE sources indicated yesterday that the results of McGuinness' pre-contract screening turned up several injury issues that led to the company backing off on their interest in signing him. McGuinness has torn both biceps while working an extremely physical ****for Ring of Honor as well as suffering (I believe) a pair of concussions during his ROH tenure.

    The actual deal with TNA went down about 5-6 days ago and McGuinness was instructed to keep mum, going as far as to act "wary" towards friends when he was asked when he would debut for WWE.

    As I noted yesterday on my Hotline, TNA President Dixie Carter has been a huge fan of McGuinness for several years. At one point, McGuinness was going to be offered a TNA deal, but had already signed with Ring of Honor. TNA instead signed Doug Williams at the time.

    When McGuinness learned WWE wasn't going to sign him, he contacted TNA, who jumped at the chance to sign him up. Any stories based around the idea that WWE "held up the paperwork" on McGuinness, allowing TNA to jump in and sign him up, are completely without merit.

    McGuiness' new TNA ring name, Desmond Wolf, was created as the company wanted a name they could trademark and copyright for their own purposes. McGuinness himself came up with the name and TNA ran with it. As those of you who have seen spoilers for the next two episodes of Impact know, McGuinness will be in the TNA mix in a MAJOR way starting this Thursday.

    For those who are curious, Ring of Honor wasn't aware McGuinness had signed with TNA until after he was in Orlando at the Impact taping yesterday, so there were no discussions in regard to McGuinness returning to ROH. McGuinness lost to Bryan Danielson in their respective farewells at the 9/26 ROH event in New York City.

    WWE sources indicate Bryan Danielson passed his pre-contract screening and will start shortly with the company. Rumors he was TNA-bound in the last 24 hours were also without merit as Danielson has had zero interest in working for TNA dating back several years.
