We had an above average PPV this past Sunday with the best match being Angle vs. Anderson in a cage. We had without the best overall Impact the next night with RVD beating Jeff Hardy and then beating AJ Styles to win TNA Gold while the WWE had to play role reversal with the Raw crew stuck in Ireland .
Vince Russo has been whining about being burned out and wants to be moved out of creative and into another area of the company .

Heyman’s fresh Eyes on the whole situation will do more to pump up the numbers in the long run then anything else they can do.
JR ‘s extension runs out the 30th of this month and while I still think that it’s a fairly big long shot , JR has no real love for Vince and he knows that it would Chap Vince’s A## if he popped up on a Impact show doing a little commentating .

The travel schedule would be lighter and he knows most of the top people there
