- With Eric Bischoff now in charge of TNA creative and David Lagana and Matt Conway working as writers, there’s a feeling that the creative direction won’t change much from what was happening with Bruce Prichard.

- The TNA live event on August 2nd in Tyler, Texas drew 400 fans. The August 3rd show in Thibodaux, LA drew 1,200 fans

- After working on a movie recently, Taryn Terrell missed the most recent set of Impact Wrestling tapings due to personal reasons and at this point, she’s not expected back any time soon. She was actually scheduled to win the Knockouts Title from Mickie James at Bound For Glory.

    The past couple of months have seen stories about TNA paying vendors AND talent late, and (if memory serves) not paying vendors completely. Distributors (DirectTV so far – can others be far behind?) are not carrying all of TNA’s PPV programming because of low sales. Also, they have been cutting Talent in droves. I don’t give them 5 years. If they continue on this path, I think they may very well be gone within 1 year.

    It only worked the first time because it hadn’t been seen in Wrestling before. Just like Jerry Springer, the professional wrestling industry had its flash in the pan.

    How much money does TNA lose per show again? And please, don’t call it a lack of “Star Power”. TNA has spent 10 years taking quite a few big stars and nullifying their “Impact!” to nothing. Even RVD noted his recent return promo’s garnered more interest in him than his entire stint in TNA.

    He was in TNA before, this is garbage, nothing new.

    TNA will go bankrupt, just wait. won’t make it 5 more years but it had a good run. Lasted longer than ECW, which is respectable.

    He still isn’t. Because “TNA Creative” isn’t, and doesn’t. It’s the same product, same story lines and same production values that were put out 20 years ago. Nothing “Creative” about it.

    Remember about a year and a half ago when Bischoff said he would “never work in a creative capacity again” ?
