– TNA sold about 300 of the Main Event packages for the Lockdown fanfest in St. Louis. That package sold for $299 and got you in to meet Sting, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Bobby Heenan, Dory Funk Jr. and Baron Von Raschke.
– It’s not looking good for Orlando Jordan’s boyfriend and valet being brought back as characters with him in TNA as they still haven’t been used on TV. Heat was on the male, Cameron, after the hotel bar incident. There has been talk of the female valet, Santana G, being used as a wrestler in the Knockouts division.
– Out of the WWE releases last week, the top two names that TNA are most interested in is Shelton Benjamin and Mickie James. It’s said that they don’t have interest in Jimmy Wang Yang because he left there on bad terms year ago after no-showing a pay-per-view to return to WWE but some say that it was so many years ago he may have a chance now. As noted before, TNA also has interest in Charlie Haas.
It should be noted that with both Shelton, Haas and Mickie, they wrestled in WWE using their real names and wouldn’t have to change their names or gimmick if they signed with TNA.
