- Tonight’s TNA Impact Wrestling will feature the return of Fight Night with James Storm vs. Bobby Roode being teased. Tonight’s show will also feature a Gut check segment and Hulk Hogan’s response to threats from Aces & 8s.
– The TNA live event on September 15th in Bethlehem, PA drew 750 fans. The venue was a casino so a lot of the tickets were comped. The live event on September 16th in Wilkes-Barre, PA drew 550 fans.
– We’ve noted how TNA is considering putting the World Heavyweight Title on Jeff Hardy because they want to keep him happy as his contract is expiring in a few months. Another reason for having him main event Bound For Glory is because the pay-per-view will be shown in movie theaters nationwide and the feeling is that more people may know Jeff Hardy’s name when they go to the theater.
There’s also a feeling that merchandise may go up, ticket sales may go up, ratings may go up and pay-per-view buys may go up with a babyface Jeff Hardy established as the main event face of the promotion.
