Abyss’ Return, X-Division Getting A Push, New Talent In TNA; More

- The Monster Abyss will be out of action until the February 24th TNA iMPACT in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He’s being kept off TV to sell injuries from Crimson stabbing in the back with Janice.

– A number of European wrestlers recently received tryouts with TNA during the company’s tour last month. TNA was most impressed with Mark Hawkins and he’s seen as the first person TNA would offer a job to if they hire anybody from this round of evaluations.

– Also on the European tour, Knockout Madison Rayne got sick and was unable to work the show in Manchester. Instead of the scheduled Rayne and Tara vs. Mickie James and Angelina Love match, they went with Love vs. Mickie with Tara as referee.

– TNA recently announced that it switched the dates for the Destination X and Victory Road pay-per-view events. The reason for the change is the company wants to build up the X-Division and that will take more than a month or two, when Destination X was previously scheduled for. The X Division pay-per-view is now scheduled for July.
