– Dutch Mantel and Jeremy Borash booked the Impact taping tonight. A lot of political jockying is going on backstage in TNA right now, with everyone trying to improve their positioning in the ranks. Word is that nobody wants to leave TNA President Dixie Carter alone for too long right now due to fear that someone else will come and get in politically at someone else’s expense.
– TNA ran a video stating that they tried to approach WWE at their Royal Rumble commercial filming at Universal Studios last week but were given legal threats. TNA plans to hold a poll at TNAWrestling.com letting their fans decide whether they should air their footage of the entire incident on Impact. WWE has told TNA that if they air the footage, they will file a lawsuit against them.
– Dale “Kiss Demon” Torberg was backstage at the Impact taping.
