Tonight’s Impact Wrestling, Jeff Hardy Praised, More On Flair-HOF

- Matches for tonight’s TNA Impact Wrestling include Tara vs. Velvet Sky vs. Mickie James in a #1 contender’s match, Zema Ion vs. Alex Shelley, ODB & Eric Young vs. Angelina Love & Winter, Matt Morgan vs. Samoa Joe plus Bully Ray & Bobby Roode vs. James Storm & Jeff Hardy in a Tables Match.

– It was reported a few weeks back that Ric Flair and the TNA crew watched the Four Horsemen WWE Hall of Fame vignette on RAW backstage at the Impact Wrestling tapings that night.

Triple H actually called Flair that day to tell him about the Horsemen induction but the TNA tapings were already over by the time the video aired on RAW. Flair was at a bar with some of the TNA crew watching the LSU vs. Alabama game when John Laurinaitis texted him to tell him when it would be airing. Flair was in tears as he watched the video with his co-workers. Flair was telling people how happy he was for the other Horsemen and vowed to be in attendance but noted that he knew he would hear something from TNA management about it.

– People within TNA have been heavily praising Jeff Hardy in the sense that he’s been clear-headed 100% of the time since returning and while he isn’t the same in the ring due to injuries, it’s like he is a different person.
