Ryan Clark


The Miami Herald has a new article online looking at TNA giving WWE some competition in the video game market. The article notes how the new TNA Impact video game now has a release date of September 2008.

TNA Knockout Ms. Payton Banks looks to be done with the company for the time being after splitting off with Robert Roode following their loss at Lockdown. One source said, “She was in over her head.” There’s still the possibility that she could be brought back to TNA, but not at the moment. Banks had been working without a contract as she was on a nightly deal with TNA. She wrestles as “Rain” for some Midwest indy leagues.

Saturday night in Lowell, Massachusetts, there was some sort of incident involving Awesome Kong that led to paramedics & police being called to the scene. Sources describe the issue relating to a “personal problem.” Kong was taken to a local hospital, but released a short while later. Kong managed to make her scheduled appearance at Lockdown. TNA officials was initially concerned and later upset about the incident. Kong was said to be embarrassed and very apologetic to TNA brass the next day.
