– For those that keep asking, Taz will be available to start appearing on TNA programming in early July.
– When TNA ran a live event in Amarillo, Texas a few weeks back, and WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk appeared, a lot of the crew went to the Big Texan Steak House afterward where Jay Lethal did a spot on imitation of Ric Flair for Terry Funk. Lethal did an old promo word-for-word that Flair cut on Funk back in the day and Funk was said to be in hysterics at how good Lethal was impersonating Flair.
– There is a lot of talk these days in TNA regarding Sting and his retirement, which there has been every year since he came back. The Bound For Glory pay-per-view is being targeted as an idea of where he may have his last match. Dixie Carter kept Sting around a year ago by offering him a good deal and internally, there is a belief that when it comes down to it this year, the same thing will happen. It was noted that with the new TV tapings schedule, not having to do overseas tours or house shows, a pay of more than $500,000 per year, a guaranteed top spot and likely time off once a year for storylines, it would be hard for Sting to turn it down. Sting’s son Garrett will be playing college football this fall at Azusa Pacific, a school in Southern California and Sting’s limited wrestling schedule would mean he won’t miss his son’s Saturday games. Sting has said before that he is ready to take some time off to spend with his kids while they’re at this age.
