— Advances for TNA’s upcoming tour of the UK in January 2009 have been described as strong. While there are no direct numbers released at this time, they will be the biggest gates and crowds in company history. Whether or not the company has plans for another “Global Impact” special remains to be seen, but you would think it would be crazy if they didn’t take advantage of the huge crowds overseas for a better presentation.

— Nothing much new on the /TNA front except for the fact that their contracts with the company are up soon and many feel they will likely re-sign. It doesn’t appear they have any interest at this time returning to WWE if the option was open. Also an interesting report making the rounds stating that Brother Ray made a comment recently saying no one wants to watch “normal” wrestling matches anymore. Some have interpreted those comments by Ray as a shoot as the word making the rounds was that demanded to be booked in stipulation matches more often as some felt they were trying to find easy ways of getting pops and having to do less work in the ring. That was at least just the perception by some within TNA.

— The latest edition of TNA U features an exclusive never-before-seen match between and Johnny Devine.

— TNA is doing very well financially, and not only are they profiting, but they have begun to pay back Panda Energy for the millions of dollars they invested in the company during its first 5-years.

— Last week there was more internal animosity towards the creative team than ever before. There were complaints about too many stipulation and weapons matches for no reason, and also complaints about too many super hero segments with the Prince Justice League. Most feel that even with all of the internal complaining nothing will change. There are lots of complaints that Joe is being booked as a whining complainer instead of the strong face champion that he was.

— There are some in management were that feel the only reason the talent was so mad at creative was because they did a three-day house show run before the two days of TV.

— The booking team is using a style of booking recently where everything is built around constant swerves. Many feel that it has been fun and entertaining, but will cause people to lose emotional attachment with the product.
