Santina Marella will be a guest of The Great Khali on the Kiss Cam.

Hell, why did they have to put that clown in Backlash? The very last thing I want to see at a PPV is a man in a skirt unless that skirt is a kilt.

This is total Bovine Scat, to add insult to the injury they will have Khali attempt to kiss the thing, I am going to be sick, it's just wrong on so many levels (shudder at the thought).

Rey Mysterio will undergo surgery for his torn biceps.

Paul London was supposed to debut with TNA this week as a new tag team with former X Division Champion The Amazing Red, London canceled with the company and is no longer expected to debut for TNA.

No reason was given; needless to say TNA officals are not impressed. I can't say I blame them.

Trevor Murdoch will be on this week’s edition of TNA.

Rumor has it that TNA has their eye on Lance Cade.

Well if they sign him that should make things interesting that's for sure.

Edge vs. Kofi Kingston.

Tyson Kidd and Natalya vs. Finlay and Hornswoggle.



Rumor has it that Taz is headed to TNA as soon as his 90 day no appearance clause expires he will begin working as Samoa Joe’s adviser.

Mmmm...Ok then what ever floats his boat.

Well that’s it for today; stay turned for more rumors, news and gossip.
