— Christian is said to be somewhat difficult behind the scenes in TNA lately in relation to how heâ<80><99>s being booked. Dixie Carterâ<80><99>s offer to release anyone at the recent backstage meeting is viewed as possibly being aimed at calling Christianâ<80><99>s bluff.

— An ironic note in regards to the Kevin Nash/Samoa Joe heat stemming from Joeâ<80><99>s shoot promo at Turning Point is that Nash is one of the key people who pushed hard for a long time to get TNA to sign Samoa Joe when he was in ROH. Nash was a big fan of Joeâ<80><99>s ROH matches he saw on DVD. Despite his past, Nash has built a stellar reputation backstage in TNA for not being involved in any politics, showing up on time, doing what he is told, and setting an example for younger wrestlers.

— Brother Ray is another veteran who is getting rave reviews backstage despite his checkered locker room reputation. He has also been heavily involved in coming up with ideas for the Team 3D/X Division feud and is said to be willing to bend over backwards to make sure the X Division guys look good to their critics.
