Ryan Clark

As reported earlier, TNA will be holding TV tapings for Impact this Monday and Tuesday in Orlando. These will be the final tapings before the Sacrifice PPV on May 11. Announced for next week’s iMPACT! will be more Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament matches featuring LAX vs. Kaz & Eric Young and AJ Styles & Tomko vs. The Rock N’ Rave Infection. The company will also reveal plans for its newest gimmick match. TNA hinted at a new “structure” on its website and in Jim Cornette’s promo last night.

As announced on iMPACT! last night, Samoa Joe will defend the TNA title against Kurt Angle and Scott Steiner at the 5/11 Sacrifice PPV.

One of the upcoming UK house shows will be taped for a second Global Impact special, reports Dave Meltzer.

Apparently, even Crystal Louthan doesn’t know her status with TNA. Yesterday, I reported that the backstage announcer had recently opened up an official website. Reader TheUnconventionals Fansite e-mailed her on the website and asked her if she was still a member of the TNA roster. Crystal replied with the following: I hope so! I am off for this month, I look forward to coming back! Please email the TNA website and let them know you miss me and keep checking my website for new updates! Thanks for watching!!!! Crystal

The new announcer, Lauren Brooke, a model from the Orlando area, was brought in at the request of Spike TV officials.
