Konnan’s lawyer in the he racial discrimination lawsuit against TNA is Cary Ichter, who is also the attorney for Michael Benoit.

Jeff Jarrett is wanting more seriousness to the product and more ring time. Finally! Apparently Dutch Mantel wants what Jarrett’s wants.

In March, TNA Impacted averaged a 1.09 cable rating, which included the 3/27 live edition.

TNA will be taping Impact on 4/15 and 4/16, which is Tuesday and Wednesday, instead of the usual Monday and Tuesday taping schedule, since the crew has to come from Boston to Orlando.

Despite a snafu with tickets sales though the company’s web site, the U.K. tour will be TNA’s most successful house show run to date. The 6/13 show Liverpool is already sold out, and TNA added a 6/12 date at the 1,700-seat venue. The 6/14 Conventry show has sold 2,000 tickets and 6/15 in Brentwood has sold 1,600 tickets, at last check.

Speaking of house shows, the 3/19 show in Springfield, MO drew 1,200 fans. The 3/20 Evansville, IN show drew just over 1,000, and the 3/21 show in St. Louis, MO drew 2,300 fans to the Family Arena.
