We noted last week how Bill Goldberg told Channel Guide Magazine that TNA recently contacted him with an offer to come in. The former World Heavyweight Champion isnt the only big name that TNA officials have reached out to over the last few weeks, according to PWInsider. We dont know for sure which stars they have contacted but TNA has been trying to sign a top star for a while now. They recently tried to sign The Young Bucks, who went with ROH, and Alberto Del Rio, who signed with WWE and won the United States Title.

– The WON reports that Jeff Hardy is likely out of the ring until late next year. Hardy needs another surgery on his knee and is expected to be out most of the year as a result. The timetable for his return won’t be certain until after the surgery.

Hardy has told friends that he will have to tone his style down as a result. His deal with TNA expires in the next few months, the same time as Matt Hardy’s does.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Michael Bennett & Maria Kanellis are getting guaranteed deals with TNA. As reported over the weekend, the two finished up with ROH at Final Battle and the TV tapings and told people they were headed to TNA.


The couples deals will allow them to work TNAs schedule as well as indie bookings. They are making significantly more money than they made with ROH, with the exception of the Young Bucks. It is believed that the deal will prevent them from returning to NJPW.

According to F4W and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, former Ring of Honor tag team champion Michael Bennett and his wife Maria Kanellis signed deals with TNA Wrestling.


The newsletter said that the deal is likely a big one, and guaranteed in nature. Bennett, Maria, and his tag team partner Taven finished up their Ring of Honor commitments last month after dropping the tag team titles to War Machine at ROH Final Battle. The two performed at the TV tapings the next day, their final ROH date.


There have been rumors that TNA have wanted to sure up their roster ahead of their Pop TV debut. The Observer states that TNA is interested in both re-signing those that are facing expiration on their current deals, as well as pursuing outside free agents to help freshen up the brand. The company re-signed several talents last year prior and shortly following their debut on Destination America.


TNA has been airing vignettes on their Youtube for "The Miracle" which could possibly be hinting towards Bennett's debut with the company. The vignettes point to TNA's debut with Pop next Tuesday.
