TNA Denies Tapings In Orlando During WM33 Weekend
Earlier this morning we reported the following:
PWInsider.com is reporting that they have confirmed that TNA has booked time at Universal Studios to film TNA TV during WrestleMania 33 weekend.
The idea is to do a live episode of Impact Wrestling the Thursday before followed by a matinee taping on Friday and then a double taping on Saturday. The remainder of the schedule has yet to be set but PWInsider.com is saying that additional dates following those tapings will be announced.
TNA will then have enough TV filmed to carry them up to the summer of 2017. TNA is already scheduled to tape at Universal Studios next month, 1/5-1/12, to get all their content for the first quarter of 2017.
In an update on the story PWInsider.com is now reporting that TNA sources have denied to them that they will be taping at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. One of the sources that PWInsider.com talked with did concede that TNA does plan on running a show in Orlando during WrestleMania 33 weekend but no venue had been selected yet and the show is not slated to be taped.
The original source for the story apparently was an employee at Universal Studios but TNA is saying that the story is false. PWInsider.com is apologizing for the initial report.

Model and aspiring MMA fighter Julie Real has posted the following to Instagram announcing that she has signed a WWE developmental deal:
So everyone wonders why I’m always MIA. Well, this is why…I’ve been working towards dreams and proud to say I am now officially signed with WWE! Like what I’ve learned through years of martial arts…each belt only means that you become a student all over again in that bracket. This is just the beginning of my journey and I am so thankful for those who have been there for me. I’d like to give a special shoutout to all the people who have made this possible for me.
