Storyline Update On Dixie Carter’s Meeting, Latest Update On TNA & Hammerstein
– We noted before that TNA announced Dixie Carter was holding a storyline “sensitive talent meeting” at TNA headquarters today. It turned out that talent was Bully Ray. Footage from their meeting will air on tonight’s Impact Wrestling episode.
– We noted before via Prowrestling.net that TNA was spending $300,000 for building rental and production work on three Impact Wrestling tapings this summer at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. PWInsider now reports that sources at the Manhattan Center complex (which has Hammerstein and the Grand Ballroom) confirm that TNA has had discussions with them about running the venue this summer but no official dates are on the books yet. TNA staffers had a site survey several months back to get a look at the venue. TNA has also been looking into partnering with different casinos for tapings this summer.
