– Ed “Brutus Beefcake” Leslie was backstage at the TNA iMPACT tapings on January 20th. Leslie is a longtime friend of Hulk Hogan.
– It was reported before that the reason TNA used a six-sided ring on the recent UK tour was because they had already shipped it before doing away with the ring. Technically that’s not correct as the company has had a six-sided ring in storage in the UK since their first tour of the country.
– Hulk Hogan has been complaining to friends about frustrations from working in TNA because he feels pressure to give pushes to people he doesn’t want to push. Word is that Dixie Carter doesn’t want the TNA originals to be buried but there are wrestlers from the old crew that Hogan sees nothing in and wants to get rid of. Hogan was apparently high on Tomko as he made a remark about how at least Tomko looks like a wrestler.
