– Regarding the new gear that Samoa Joe was dressed in for Destination X, well, TNA made it for him. Even though Joe came back heavier than he was when he left, the new costume made him look a whole lot worse. The plan with the new look for Joe was not intended to bury him, but the idea was that it would make him look like a bigger star than before.
– TNA has toned down the Don West heel turn per orders from the top of the company. Officials felt they went too far with it and had to get it under control.
– Regarding the TNA World X Cup this year, not much has been talked about it at this point. The event is a major headache each time because it requires TNA working with international groups and there always seems to be communication issues, mistrust, double-crossing and screwups. Last year, there was an agreement to make things become bigger with CMLL hosting the entire tournament which would have then aired on iMPACT. The feeling was that it would have given the Cup a different look. CMLL didn’t use any TNA talents on it’s recent pay-per-view so their relationship with TNA is unknown at this point. TNA’s style is more conducive to the AAA promotion these days but Konnan is there which would hold up any working relationship between the two companies.
