– The recent TNA UK tour was said to be the most grueling tour for them ever but the best in terms of locker room morale. Everyone was happy to be working in front of larger crowds and more receptive crowds. Samoa Joe gave an emotional speech on the bus traveling back to the hotel about how this was his toughest tour but the tour had no prima donnas, no complainers and no whiners, and how proud he was of everyone. The wrestlers were chanting Joe’s name when it was over.
– Regarding the backstage argument between Kurt Angle and John Gaburick on the UK tour, one person described it as not even an argument or Angle blowing up, but Angle just expressing confusion because he thought his booking didn’t make any sense. It was said that on the tour, Angle could barely move and looked like he was hurting bad but as soon as he was in front of fans, he ignored it and put on a good performance.
