Chris Sabin has been catching a lot of heat as of late for things that Alex Shelley has been doing. Sabin is known to go with the flow and do what he is told but Shelley likes to rock the boat and will speak out when he wants. We previously reported that Sabin and Shelley have heat for refusing to do a blade job. Well this is sort of true. Shelley was the one who refused to blade as he has never bladed before and claims he never will. Sabin was willing to do it but when Shelley said no they decided to just have Lethal do it.

TNA iMPACT! going live now seems to be totally dependent on Spike TV and if they give the OK it will most likely happen.
Highspots.com has just released “Girls Custom Wrestling Matches” DVDs on six women including two TNA Knockouts. They have released DVDs on former ECW Vixxen Francine, former WWF Hardcore Champion Bobcat, former WCW valet Daffney, Ring of Honor wrestler Lacey (who once did a rant on her MySpace on WWE Divas and did an angle in ROH just last December in which she cuts a promo on Tammy “Sunny” Sytch for making it hard for fans to take women in wrestling seriously), and current TNA Knockouts Salinas (going by her real name Shelly) & Robert Roode’s manager Ms. Payton Banks (going by her indy wrestling name Rain). The matches are pretty much displays of various wrestling holds as they grapple each other in a ring in an empty building. Highspots advertises all of the DVDs with the following tagline: “UNCENSORED VERSION! May contain adult language and wardrobe malfunctions.”, so it appears to be more about T & A than wrestling. You can see the product pages on the DVDs on Shelly Martinez and Ms. Payton Banks at Highspots.com. The videos were shot late last year.
