– TNA is taping the next 4 episodes of iMPACT! this week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. By Wednesday, we’ll have a full look at how TNA storylines will unfold over the next month leading up to Slammiversary on June 13.
– One of the top matches at Slammiversary will be the annual King of the Mountain match. Qualifying matches for KOTM will begin on Thursday’s iMPACT!, being taped on Monday night in Orlando.
– As noted earlier, TNA will be making budget cuts in the very near future. The company has spent a ton of money this year on new talent (Rob Van Dam, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson, Orlando Jordan, Scott Hall & more), going live on Monday nights and related marketing costs. While many in the company understand that talent will have to be let go to save money, TNA President Dixie Carter is fighting to keep as many people employed. She realizes that these are tough times with the economy, especially in the wrestling business and doesn’t want anyone without the ability to make a living. (Source: F4Wonline.com)
