Reason Behind a TNA Name Change, New TNA Knockout Disappoints, More

– TNA newcomer Sarah Stock was a huge disappointment in her debut for the promotion last week. The company brought her in from Mexico with the idea of making her the top female babyface in the promotion and having her work with Awesome Kong in hopes of revitalizing the women’s division.

On April 21, Stock worked a match with Kong prior to the iMPACT taping and many backstage felt the match was terrible. Many felt her offense looked weak as the soft Mexican women’s style of wrestling doesn’t translate well in the United States. She worked a bit better the next night with , but the feeling was that her offense was still weak.

– TNA changing ring name to “Daniels” was simply a marketing decision. He owns the name and TNA prefers owning their performers’ ring names, hence the change. While the announcers and everyone else is supposed to refer to him as “Daniels,” in certain situations such as last week’s episode of iMPACT, people who are his close friends are scripted to call him “Chris.”

– As reported earlier, TNA’s next pay-per-view on the road, , will be taking place on June 21 at the Palace in Auburn Hills in Detroit, Michigan. The Palace in Auburn Hills is one of the largest arenas in the country and can hold an audience of 23,000 for wrestling. No one in the company is delusional to think that if the show draws a mere 5,000, it won’t be a success. While TNA probably won’t even come close to filling the arena to complete capacity, they should be fine nonetheless as The Palace has this big tarp that greatly curtains off portions of the arena. For instance, the WNBA’s Detroit Shock often have their games curtained so the arena doesn’t look too empty on television.
