— TNA Wrestling is grooming Samoa Joe for a run with the TNA World Championship. A title run for Joe has been planned for over two years but the decision has pushed back time-after-time because the company did not want to do it too soon. Everyone in TNA understands that timing is everything and feel like that Joe doesnâ<80><99>t have to win the next time he gets a title shot but he needs to prevail in the program in the end. Some have speculated that the time TNA may choose to give Samoa Joe the title could be against Kurt Angle at Lockdown in April.

— While there doesnâ<80><99>t appear to be any immediate interest, friends of Chris Masters have told him not to go to TNA Wrestling. The feeling is that with his size and his young age of 25, it is pretty much inevitable that WWE will take him back so it is in his best interests not to get tied down. Masters was told that TNA is great for superstars that are already a big name commodity because you are pretty much guaranteed a good spot but itâ<80><99>s not really the place for a young guy.

— TNA has not yet sold 1,000 tickets for next monthâ<80><99>s Against All Odds pay-per-view at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville, South Carolina.
