    There have been a number of backstage altercations in TNA Wrestling over the past week or two. Here's the latest:

    – There was a massive edit for last week's TNA iMPACT! as Lacey Von Erich fell flat on her face when she ran to the ring to do a run-in during the Knockouts elimination match. The issues with Von Erich don't end there as she suffered a minor hamstring injury while training at the Impact Zone and made it known all night that she was in pain. She then reportedly told a male trainer to go and get her an ice pack and the guy ended up walking in to see a half-dressed Awesome Kong who was obviously not happy. We're told Kong grabbed Von Erich and took her to the trainers room where she proceeded to cut a promo on her in front of Kurt Angle. When Von Erich went to TNA management to complain, they ended up siding with Kong.

    – According to the PWTorch Newsletter, AJ S.tyles went off on Vince Russo and was frustrated over "what he argued was dismal booking of him early in his run as champion." S.tyles feels he's been made to look like a weak champion by Russo.

    Samoa Joe also had some beef with TNA management, but it was not wrestling-related, Samoa Joe complained that TNA blew-off of a commitment to use his friend's catering business at the Bound For Glory PPV in California. Joe complaining about catering .. insert joke here.

    – Chris Sabin suffered a concussion at the TNA Impact TV tapings on Wednesday night in Orlando, FL. Sabin's concussion took place during a tag team match between The Motor City Machineguns and Team 3D when Sabin landed awkwardly. Sabin reportedly told people backstage that he was out cold during the match, but somehow regained his composure and finished the finish. We're told Kevin Nash blew up backstage about the incident and was overhead yelling at Team 3D for not killing the original finish as he felt Sabin's health should have been the first priority. Nash felt that as veterans, Team 3D should have made that call on the fly and that someone in production could have given a cue to the referee to end the match. While it probably won't air, Nash did walk out in front of the Impact Zone and cut a promo about how upset he was that the match continued as Sabin was laying on the ring apron. Sabin was said to be feeling much better after the taping had finished. Nash is being praised by other wrestlers with the company for looking out for the safety of his coworkers.

    We reported several weeks ago that the current creative plan in TNA calls for Tomko to be revealed as AJ Styles' mystery attacker on Impact. ProWrestling.net is now reporting that the idea is to have AJ face Tomko at either the January of February PPV of 2010. Reports are indicating that although Tomko has signed a short term deal with TNA, he IS expected to eventually face Styles on PPV.

    Lisa Marie Varon aka Tara in TNA is in Los Angeles today pitching a reality series about her, as a professional wrestler, moving into Mixed Martial Arts.

    The TNA New Year's Eve marathon on SpikeTV has been titled "New Year's Knockout Eve."

    Kurt Angle hurt his back again at the house shows over the weekend, which is why he didn't wrestle on the Impact tapings this past week.

    Scott and Rick Steiner will be doing a reunion in their home State of Michigan on Sunday 12/13 for PTW in Michigan. The Motor City Machineguns vs. Beer Money, Hernandez and Tyson Dux (who worked a World X Cup for TNA in the past) are also scheduled for the event.

    In advance of the company's debut tour of Australia next year, TNA Xplosion will debut this Thursday in Australia at 8:30 PM on ONE. If anyone would like to do TV reports of the series, please feel free to email me by clicking my name above.

    Pat Kenney, Christy Hemme and Madison Rayne will be among those appearing this weekend in Carteret, NJ at the K&S Wrestlefest. Former TNA wrestlers Johnny Swinger and Sonjay Dutt will be there as well. For details, visit www.kandswrestlefest.com.

    Velvet Sky will be appearing this Saturday 12/12 at 2 PM at Orange County Choppers (same place as the location for the reality series) in Newburgh, NY for a signing appearance.

    On 1/24/10, Lacey Von Erich and Abyss will be signing at the Tri-Star Collector's Show in Houston, Texas.

    Thanks to Paul Jordan and Devin Cutting.

    Jeremy Borash on The Fight Show - 12/18/2009

    The host asked JB to finish the line: "The Nielsen rating for TNA Impact on 1/4/2010 will be...". JB said "an irrelevant fact". JB said because it's a one-night deal. The fact they are doing it is a victory. The number is not going to be something you can measure a "war" by any means. It's a one night special. They're not going to be on Mondays afterwards - they're going back to Thursdays. To him, the victory is not the number but the shot they fire and the attention they can potentially get.

    JB says the trends do not always fit the case. They can have a great and better show, but does that mean more people are going to tune in? probably not. Is that going to be a disappointment? No.

    JB feels they already won because people are already talking about the 1/4/2010 iMPACT!. JB says the war is what the fans want because it is the best time to be a part of the business. He says TNA and the business wants competition.

    Talk moved to Final Resolution and Bobby Lashley's signing with StrikeForce. Talk then transitions to Lou Ferrigno and JB/Foley really travelling to Los Angeles.

    The show can be downloaded at this link.

    Panda Energy President Bob Carter and a lot of SpikeTV executives were in the house last night at the Impact Zone. Nick Hogan was not in attendance at the event.

    TNA Tag Team champs The British Invasion vs. Hernandez and Matt Morgan is set for the TNA Genesis PPV.

    TNA stars Traci Brooks and Frankie Kazarian (Suicide) are slated to get married this week, so our best to the happy couple.

    Scott Steiner was backstage at Impact last night, but wasn't used. He'll be on tonight's show.

    Visiting backstage were Dory and Marti Funk as well as former WCW star Dale Torborg (The Demon). Torborg now works for MyContent.com, which handled the live post-show press conference.

    There was talk of an angle for tonight's taping that would see the company's signature six-sided ring destroyed and replaced going forward with a traditional four sided ring.

    The main event of the TNA Genesis PPV is scheduled to be AJ S.tyles vs. Kurt Angle for the TNA championship, which will be explained at tonight's taping.

    Angelina Love is in Orlando and will make her return to TNA tonight.

    -PWisinder

    And

    From start to finish the crowd in the Impact Zone was OFF THE WALL. There were tons of fans waiting to get in and from what we were told on the inside a lot of people were pushed into the Hard Rock Live at City Walk. It was hosted by TNA's Hype Man and to make up for the fans not being able to get in they brought in wrestlers periodically to say hi (from what's been going on around here today most of the people who did not get in were "Bubba the Love Sponges Army" and there is a clear line being drawn between them and the TNA Faithful)

    TNA VIPs were allowed access to the Impact Zone first, which they rightfully should have been being that they were here for TNA before Hulk Hogan.

    A lot of fans were not happy with TNAs decision to do a disqualification as I'm sure it was apparent on TV. I am waiting to see what they do with Jeff Hardy before I pass judgment on his return, I would pray that they don't use him to bury the X Division.

    Apparently, and we in the Impact Zone had NO IDEA that they showed Sting on TV last night til we went home and watched.

    The roof went off the Impact Zone when Hogan made his was in for the first time.

    Brooke Hogan was sitting directly across from the pit with her boyfriend taking pictures of the crowd and really having a good time with the fans being very cordial signing autographs and taking pictures. Nick Hogan wasn't there.

    AJ vs. Angle was WAY over and the crowd went back and forth the whole match.

    The sheet that Bischoff ripped up and threw into the crowd was indeed the actual script for the night with the events written actually happening.

    I am attending Impact tonight so it will be interesting to see how everything pans out with the TNAtion vs. the Bubba Army.

    Beer Money, Inc. — James Storm and Robert Roode — have been expressing their frustration to people backstage after they received word that TNA creative director Vince Russo said he didn't see them as top stars. Actually, Russo said that they were expendable, but the Pro Wrestling Torch notes that he may have been trying to send the outspoken Storm a message.

    Storm was said to be very upset with the team's limited role on the January 4th Impact. In one scene, they were shown shaking hands with Ric Flair upon his arrival to the Impact Zone. Later that night, they were shown selling a beat down from an unidentified assailant.

    It should be noted that there is no noticeable friction between the duo and Russo as observers say they get along fine backstage.

    According to PWTorch.com, TNA newcomer Orlando Jordan had a reputation for developing a big head and exhibiting some unusual behavior during the final months of his tenure in World Wrestling Entertainment four years ago. Jordan was fired from the company on May 26, 2006 because he had been traveling with someone not authorized by the company. Before his untimely release from the organization, there were creative plans for Jordan to be repackaged with a bisexual gimmick in a storyline that would have involved former TNA performer Stephanie Finochio (a/k/a Trinity) and a friend of his with no prior background in the wrestling industry. While bisexuality is considered taboo in some wrestling circles, it was passed for Jordan since it is his life****in the real world. It should be noted that the storyline was Jordan's idea because creative team had no plans for him at the time.

    Shortly after his departure from the organization, Jordan became embroiled in a bit of controversy online as he had uploaded photos of himself embracing two young males on his MySpace account. Furthermore, Jordan also uploaded nude photographs of himself to an account on the photo sharing website Photobucket.com. The images were discovered because Jordan also stored wrestling photos of himself on the account for his MySpace page. That said, there were said to be no issues with Jordan backstage at the live Monday Night iMPACT! on Jan. 4.

    BG James was back working as an agent this past week at television as he was filling in for Scott D'Amore. The word backstage is that D'Amore was unable to attend this week's tapings due to shoulder surgery. James was called in as a replacement, though he only worked Monday. D'Amore is the primary agent in charge of the Knockouts division.

    Kevin Nash is said to be unhappy with "The Band" nickname TNA bestowed upon him, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman. They used the old Blue Brothers movie joke about putting "the band back together" several years ago in World Championship Wrestling, but Nash now feels it's ridiculously dated.
