As we reported yesterday, the massive Typhoon Vongfong is headed for Japan and is expected to make landfall on Monday before hitting Tokyo on Tuesday. TNA’s Bound For Glory PPV is in Tokyo but the TNA crews should be back in the United States before it hits the mainland.

TNA President Dixie Carter expressed concern yesterday on Twitter but later posted a tweet with a photo of James Storm’s face that appears to mock the typhoon. Carter subsequently has been receiving a lot of heat from fans for posting the Tweets.

Dixie deleted the one tweet, at around 7:45pm EST, but we’ve included a capture of both tweets below:
