3 TNA Releases, TNA Gets Legal Letter, Backstage News

Ryan Clark


Norman Smiley was removed from the TNA website’s roster page this past week. Smiley will still probably be used every now and then, but on a per appearance basis in an enhancement role.

One of the beauty pageant entities sent TNA a legal letter saying that they owned the rights to the name ‘Miss Tennessee’. Due to that, Jacqueline Moore’s name has since been changed to Jackie Moore, ‘The Pride of Tennessee’.

As noted yesterday, The Diamonds in the Rough are no more. Elix Skipper and David Young were released from their TNA contracts last week. Neither had been used in some time. Simon Diamond, who managed the team, will be staying on with the company as an agent. TNA has also released A-1 (Alastair Ralphs), formerly of Team Canada, from his contract.

The Slammiversary 2007 PPV will be held on 6/17. Slammiversary will be the next TNA PPV held outside of Orlando, Florida after Lockdown. forums.wrestlezone.com is reporting that it looks like Nashville at the current time.

TNA will tape iMPACT! this Monday 2/26 at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
