As noted earlier by TNAWrestlingNews.com, Shane Douglas, Billy Kidman, Don Callis and Dick Slater were all backstage at TNA’s Lockdown PPV last night in Orlando, FL. Douglas returned to TNA in his role as a backstage agent, while Callis happened to be in the area on business. Both Kidman and Slater were simply visiting.
Matt Bentley has heat on him for missing a recent TNA/UWF house show. Bentley also hasn’t been used on TV as of late, which could be a punishment.
TNA has altered their PPV schedule name wise. This year’s May PPV will be Sacrifice instead of Hard Justice. Slammiversary will still be in June, and on July 16th the company will hold Victory Road, which was held in November previously.
