TNA Hard Justice PPV Date, Backstage WWE NXT News

Eric Bischoff has noted on his Twitter page that TNA’s Hard Justice PPV will take place on August 8th. The venue for the PPV has not yet been announced, however it is likely that the show will take place in Orlando.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that people "who know better in WWE creative" knew not to comment on the illogical nature of last week’s NXT episode and how it played out on Raw the following week. Last week’s NXT episode promised that the rookie who won the show’s challenge would face a pro on Raw, but it turned out that two NXT rookie’s who did not win the competition actually received higher profile matches than the winner did. This was seen by most backstage as very odd, but creative team members knew better than to call anyone out on it.
