Jeff Jarrett should be making his long-awaited return to the ring by next January. The Sun is reporting that Jarrett is scheduled to wrestled on TNA’s next tour England in January. The TNA part-owner Jarrett was backstage for the companyâ<80><99>s recent events in England, but did not wrestle on the shows. Jarrett last wrestled at the 2007 TNA Sacrifice pay-per-view event. Here are the venues and dates for TNA’s tour of England next January: Tuesday, January 20 â<80>” Manchester â<80>” Manchester Evening News Arena, Wednesday, January 21 â<80>” Birmingham â<80>” National Indoor Arena, Thursday, January 22 â<80>” Glasgow â<80>” Braehead Arena, and Saturday, January 24 â<80>” London â<80>” Wembley Arena. Tickets go on sale Friday June 27 2008 at 9 AM at all venue box offices, online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.gigsandtours.com.
As noted earlier, TNA iMPACT! defeated ECW in the ratings last week — their first victory over the program since January. iMPACT! drew a 1.03 cable rating to ECW’s 0.99. Anyway, TNA and Spike TV officials were so ecstatic over the news they held a private celebration. Although, it should be noted that last week’s ECW went up against the deciding game of the NBA Finals whereas TNA went up against reruns.
Confirming some online reports floating around, TNA has signed Ontario indy wrestler Cody Deaner, 26, to contract. As of late there has been talk on how to use him for television.
