The future of the Marvel’s TNA action figure line may be decided this weekend at Toy Fair. Marvel has shown interest in the WWE line which their contract with Jakks expiring in 2009.

Samoa Joe’s current TNA contract will expire in June of this year. Joe signed a 3 year deal with TNA in 2005. He was offered an extension in 2007 but rejected the deal. It should be interesting to see if Joe stays with TNA or looks “elsewhere” for a job. There is talk that Joe will get the TNA World Title soon but we will have to wait and see on that.

As noted earlier, Jay Lethal’s major push is scheduled to continue. His merchandise has been a top seller and TNA is working on releasing more Black Machismo merchandise in the near future.

Salinas and Christy Hemme are no longer being advertised for the New York house shows.

As noted earlier, ODB vs. Awesome Kong in a street fight will take place at tonight’s iMPACT! tapings in Orlando, FL.
