If WWE does end up putting ICW on the network, I don't think we'll have to wait long.

 

As excited I am to possibly seeing him back, I hope he left the right way and dropped the belt at the tapings before he left (I don't read spoilers, so I don't know).

 

ICW would have to figure out what to do with Grado, Marty Scrull, Bram, Matt Cross and Ricochet if they end up on the WWE Network.

Must have seen The Hardyz leave and fell through on signing.

 

 

TNA better call some talents and make placement changes because tapings are this week. Bennett is barely involved in anything atm and Allie just won the War with Maria. They aren't messing with the lineups much.

Maria Kanellis has departed TNA, PWInsider.com has confirmed with multiple sources.

 

Maria and Mike’s respective contracts expired in late 2016 and they had been working on per appearance deals over the last set of TNA TV tapings. TNA management had attempted to sign the pair to new contracts and according to one source, had agreed to terms with the company only to later inform TNA they would not be signing. So, the pair are already done and will not be working this week’s TV tapings.

– There’s been a lot of talk about the company having a plan to officially discontinue the TNA name for this new era under Anthem and Jeff Jarrett.

 

– We noted last week that Dutch Mantell (WWE’s Zeb Colter) had returned to TNA to work creative. TNA announced this week to the roster that Dutch is the new head of creative, according to PWInsider. John Gaburick is staying on as a consultant and will be running the Gorilla position at TV tapings, but beyond giving feedback to the new writing team he will not be involved in creative going forward.

 

Jarrett is now overseeing everything as Chief Creative Officer. It’s believed that Jarrett won’t be on TV anytime soon but that could obviously change. Longtime creative team member Matt Conway has left the company as has longtime employee Bill Banks, who also worked for WWE and ECW years back. Banks’ departure is reportedly not related to other company changes as he’s returning home to the Northeast part of the country to start a new chapter in his life, according to PWInsider.

 

– Regarding the departures of Drew Galloway and The Hardy Boys, Jarrett took to Twitter and wrote the following. This was before the news came out about Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett leaving the company.

- TNA officials are still talking about resuming live events later this year. There was a pitch to begin them in June but it looks like it will be closer to the fall now.

 

- It looks like former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio will not be coming into TNA. With John Gaburick no longer working a prominent role in creative, the push to bring Del Rio in is over.

Del Rio was actually scheduled to appear at the recent set of Impact Wrestling tapings but the decision was made to hold his debut off until the March tapings, which begin this week. However, word going around is that the debut will not be happening. TNA had been talking with Del Rio going back to the fall of 2016.

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Bruce Prichard will be making his return to Impact Wrestling this week and not just in a backstage role, hell also be on camera.

 

Sources with direct knowledge tell us Prichard will be be flying to Orlando for the upcoming taping to appear in an on-air role, as well as work in an advisory position behind the scenes.

 

As we previously reported this week saw the Impact Wrestling departures of Broken Matt, Jeff Hardy, Drew Galloway, Mike Bennett, Maria and Jade.

 

Unclear what Bruces on-air role will be at this point, but were told the huge numbers his podcast has been receiving were partly the reason for bringing him back.

Drew Galloway issued the following comments to the Scottish Sun following his departure from Impact Wrestling this week. Galloway explains that he was offered a new deal with TNA, but the timing of the offer was what led him to turning it down:

 

They came to me last week with an offer and it was very very good one, one of the best in the company and a position as top guy but the reality is that because they waited until the last second I had to turn it down.

 

Everything was so last minute. I had to to think about back-up plans and family because it went to the wire. I was surprised I got no heads-up beforehand and when they got in touch last week they wouldnt accept no for an answer and the financial offer was great so it was a very hard decision to make.

 

If all of this was said three weeks ago I would have signed. They wanted to position me as the top guy in the U.K, across Europe and in the US but it was too little too late.

 

When the news came out I was leaving, the internet response was insane.

 

Galloway also talked about making a name for himself around the world, if hed consider a return to WWE versus continuing to travel the world:

 

Opportunities came because WWE built my name and Ive made the most of it. Most people jump for joy when WWE come calling and rightly so. But its the first time in a decade apart from the month after leaving WWE that Im not under a major contract.

 

Ive worked my ass off and knocked it out the park as a free agent so its my time now. It has to be the right offer and in the end, Im not a young kid anymore. WWE was my dream at 21 but these days its all business.

Wow, new TNA management screwed it up. Same reason why The Hardyz didn't sign, it was last minute.

As for myself i would like to see Impact up the star power of the talents that have stayed loyal to them. Robbie E, Jessie Godderz, etc these guys go to bat for TNA and stick with them through thick and then i wanna see some star power increase.

I'm so stoked to see Reno Scum with TNA (not sure what they'll be called there though). Adam Thornstowe (the smaller one, without the mohawk) is legit one of the best wrestlers I've seen here in Nor Cal

From the taping spoilers, it seems like they know they *censored*ed up in the past and are aware what made them *Censored* up.

I'm speaking about the talking segments, haven't seen anything else.

 

 

 

They need to get rid of the 3 round shit for the Grand Championship. Make it a regular mid-card title.

Yeah we're talking about two different things :lol: The promo segments seem great but what I read about one person and their apparent role is another story.
