Miss Tessmacher’s Name Change, Identity of Abyss at Slammiversary, TNA HOF News, Dixie

– The man who played Abyss at last night’s TNA Slammiversary pay-per-view was a student named Lance from Team 3D’s wrestling school in Florida.

– TNA has dropped the Brooke from Miss Tessmacher’s name because of the arrival of Brooke Hogan. Word is that Hulk Hogan didn’t want two Brookes in the company. Tessmacher won the Knockouts Title at Slammiversary and her new nickname from here on out will be “Tess.”

– Dixie Carter announcing Sting as the first inductee into TNA’s Hall of Fame was a surprise to everyone in the company with the exception of a very small number of people. Both Sting and Hulk Hogan did not know before Sunday.

– Dixie wrote the following on Twitter after Slammiversary:

“What a beautiful, proud night. Thank you D/FW. Thank you wonderful fans for 10 amazing years!!! Great, great PPV.”

    It was – When WWE bought WCW, Shane Helms was forced to change his ring name to Gregory, to avoid confusion with Shane McMahon.

    This was despite having Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho & Christian on the roster. Wasn’t a problem when they added Chris Masters to that either.

    “Word is that Hulk Hogan didn’t want two Brookes in the company.” That sounds like Vince’s thought process right there.

    Also they never did show Abyss’s face, I wonder how they’ll work that out in the future.

    The crowd was good, you could see how active they were, but I got the feeling that TNA doesn’t have the audio set-up to probably capture the crowd noise for a place that size. Still, that audience made TNA look big-time, if only for one night.
