  • CMLL announced on their website that they would be signing a working agreement with TNA. This is related to the World X-Cup, and as of now CMLL plans to send Ultimo Guerrero, Averno, Volador Jr. and Rey Bucanero. The plans can change, because CMLL doesn’t want their faces and heels working together, because of the coverage it would get in the magazines in Mexico. TNA has promised to avoid that, but CMLL still is concerned.
  • There could be a snag in the partnership between the two companies, as TNA is very interested in signing “Dark Angel” Sara Stock. Stock is one of the most popular women in CMLL, and the feeling is that if TNA were to sign her that CMLL would stop doing business with them.
  • It looks like Jonny Fairplay’s negotiations with TNA aren’t going well, as he appeared on the Opie and Anthony over the weekend and didn’t have kind words for the company.
  • Gail Kim’s knee injury is just an angle for those who were wondering.
  • Kurt Angle and Petey Williams are both expected to work Slammiversary.
  • Kurt Angle is down to about 200 lbs. these days. He is on major diet, and backstage, he asks people to guess his weight.
