– It was reported earlier today that TNA Knockout Angelina Love went to Japan over the weekend to team up with Tomohiko Hashimoto in a match with Yutaka Yoshie and Mike DiBiase. The original source of the story has since removed the tidbit from his website as it’s completely false. Also, Yutaka Yoshie is a male wrestler, so a female & male vs. two males match is obviously a bit too far-fetched. Additionally, Ms. Love herself said that she’s currently at home nursing a sprained ankle.
– As reported earlier, Shelly “Salinas” Martinez is parting ways with TNA because she asked for a pay raise to turn down a film role. TNA didn’t give in and Martinez handed in her noticed as a result. Her contract was expiring soon and she was uncertain over her future. The idea of breaking up LAX for Hernandez to go as a single has resurfaced as of late. Martinez saw that as a bad thing for her, so that also played a part in her decision to leave.
– TNA is doing a ton of local advertising in Chicago to promote next month’s Bound For Glory pay-per-view in hopes of boosting ticket sales for the show. TNA bought ads on billboards, taxi cabs, and trains throughout the Chicago area.
