– Several TNA stars worked the New Japan event this past Sunday. Beer Money defeated Masahiro Chono & AKIRA, Kurt Angle defeated Giant Bernard and Team 3D defended their IWGP Tag Titles against Toru Yano & Togi Makabe. Angle will be challenging IWGP Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi on Japan on March April 5th, the day of WrestleMania.
– TNA is expected to be signing new Knockouts soon.
– Satanico el Exotico is scheduled for the TNA iMPACT tapings next week.
– Jakks will begin working on TNA’s action figure line next month in preparation for their January 2010 release.
– Despite Midway Games filing for bankruptcy and owing TNA several thousand dollars, they have began work on TNA’s next video game as late as a few weeks ago. It’s believed they are trying to get the game done and out as soon as possible so it can be credited to Midway’s assets.
– Word going around Puerto Rico is that TNA has purchased a stake in IWA Puerto Rico, but it may just be an angle they are doing down there. LAX won the IWA Tag Team Titles last week and Samoa Joe also worked for the promotion last week. Speaking of Puerto Rico, TNA has a live event scheduled there on 3/20.
