– Peculiarly, the left side of Tara’s top was blurred throughout the conclusion of her match with Angelina Love on this past Thursday’s iMPACT! broadcast. It seems strange because the blurring commenced once the match came back from a commercial break and carried on towards its conclusion. Furthermore, it would not appear to be a case of an insignia issue as the top she wore simply read “Poison” with no logo beared. Also note, she’s worn the ring outfit before on television.

It’s been speculated that Tara suffered a wardrobe malfunction at some point during the match and that TNA’s production staff decided to digitize her top through the conclusion of the match as a precautionary measure.

Tara’s apparent wardrobe malfunction comes on the heels of last month’s live iMPACT! special where ODB pulled her trunks a bit too far south while attempting a roll-up. The TNA Women’s Knockout Champion’s buttocks was blurred during the episode’s subsequent Thursday replay.

Likewise, Tara’s Thursday opponent, Angelina Love, suffered a wardrobe malfunction of her own roughly two years ago as her breast momentarily came exposed during a taped television broadcast while backing towards the ramp at the conclusion of a match which she had just interfered in. In that case, TNA’s production crew missed digitizing her.

— As reported earlier, Thursday’s episode of iMPACT! drew a final 1.2 cable rating with 1.6 million viewers — a drop from the previous week’s record high 1.4 rating. The Wrestling Observer is reporting that there was a lot of unhappiness within the company when Thursday’s rating was released.

— TNA will be holding live events in Virginia this coming Thursday and Friday (Charlottesville and Norfolk) before heading off to Orlando for Sunday’s Against All Odds pay-per-view. Fans that purchase a $35 seat ticket will receive a free TNA DVD.

    I really don’t see whats the big deal with a “wardrobe malfunction” This is nothing new in wrestling and its to be expected from time to time. Sure its nudity that may not match the rating they are to uphold however it is accidental nudity and more importantly it is not meant in a sexual nature of any kind.

    In fact I believe if anything the censorship is more hurtful than anything because it gives a message that perfectly normal body parts are bad or shameful. We should aim to be a more respectful and mature society and instead of acting immature and/or offended at the very sight of a unclothed person we should realize that a naked body is nothing special.

    There’s no such thing as a quick fix. They may not be doing well in the ratings now, but they can be in a few months if they start doing things right, but that depends on the people behind the scenes doing what’s best for TNA not for themselves.

    So it seems even TNA management recognize they are not doing as good as some fan boys here propose. Maybe they’ll start saying that TNA is doing better than WWE overseas (sigh)… Sarcasm on: “specially with the billions of viewers they have in Asia, Latin America and Europe besides de UK” Saracasm off.

    The person in the front row’s t-shirt was blurred during the same match. I’m sure it wasn’t a malfunction, just copyright crap.
