— As noted in a column on News-JournalOnline.com last week, Kevin Nash’s contract with TNA runs out on October 10, which of course is today. Merchandise issues are the main thing holding back the new deal.
— Christian Cage’s contract with TNA is coming up next month and the feeling is that he won’t be telling anyone what he’s going to do until he makes the final call. With the exception of the likes of Scott D’Amore, Jeff Jarrett and Dixie Carter, who he negotiated with when he joined TNA three years ago, he told nobody about his move to the company. After giving his notice and obvious rumors started up, he denied he was going to TNA to everyone in WWE as well as his friends.
— New Japan Pro Wrestling star Hiroshi Tanahashi said he would be appearing at the next Impact tapings. Within TNA, this hasn’t been talked about much, but they have talking about him coming in for an appearance. However, they don’t appear to have specific plans for him. He’ll likely come in and do match, perhaps for TNA Xplosion, more for Japanese wrestling magazines and television. He faced AJ Styles at the 2006 Final Resolution pay-per-view, appeared at Xplosion taping a few days later, and left.
