— TNA has signed Akira Raijin of All Japan Pro Wrestling to a two-year contract. He will be doing indy dates in the United States as well. Although, undercard wrestlers only get paid when they work, and there is no minimum amount of dates. In recent months, TNA has signed the likes of Doug Williams, B-Boy and Cody Deaner, and all three wrestlers still have yet to be used. Also, there aren’t any significant guarantees in their contracts, so there is no rush to use them. Jarrett told Terry Taylor to sign him after seeing him several months ago in a dark match.

— BG James has apparently been phased out as a wrestler in TNA, but still has a role with the company. James is now working as a road agent.

— TNA drew 5,500 fans to the Bound for Glory pay-per-view in Chicago, 4,500 of which were paid. Officials were happy as it was one of the largest paid crowds in company history and the crowd was hot as well.

— Today is Christy Hemme’s birthday. She turns 28 years old.
