Former WWE superstar Shawn Daivari has been said to be interested in working for TNA Wrestling.

As noted before, Junior Fatu aka Rikishi is gone from TNA. He was working on a night-by-night basis and was constantly asking for more money. There was some concern about his work in the ring and his attitude (he forgot Robert Roode’s name during an interview by calling him “Rick Rude”), and so they decided not to offer him what he felt he was was worth. Because Fatu was advertised to wrestle in the Fight for the Right tournament at Monday’s Impact taping, TNA actually announced that Fatu would not be there. Though he seemed to get a nice reception from the fans during his short stint in TNA, a number of people in crowd cheered the announcement.

As noted earlier on WrestleZone.com, Tomko is pushing for the January 4 Tokyo Dome show to feature a TNA television taping. TNA wrestlers are already scheduled to appear at the New Japan Pro Wrestling show.
