— TNA has announced that the company will be running an iMPACT! Wrestling taping on 11/21 in Baltimore, Maryland at the First Mariner Arena. The taping was officially announced by TNA at the company’s 8/30 live event in Hagerstown this weekend.
— Former WWE and TNA star Lisa Marie Varon (aka Victoria, Tara) recently spoke about her recent departure from TNA and talked about in detail why she has no plans to ever return to the company. For those who may have missed it earlier, Varon said, “TNA has definitely shifted their focus as far as the women’s division. It was really my love of wrestling that kept me going. I didn’t think it was the right fit for me anymore. My contract was up in a month or two. They knew I wasn’t going to re-sign. First, they had the travel guy (Bob Ryder) call me and tell me I was released. Then Dixie called me late that day and said it was a financial thing, and they knew I was ready to jump ship anyway. I think the classy thing to do would have been to give me the opportunity to quit rather than getting released. But at the end of the day, everyone got what they wanted. They say never say never in this business. But I’m comfortable saying I will never return to TNA.”
