— Plans are in place for TNA Impact to air live on Thursday, March 27. They will tape the 4/3 Impact the next day, which will go head-to-head with a Ring of Honor show. At this point, there are no official plans for live Impact tapings as the 3/27 show is an experiment. However, TNA has contacted indy promoters who run shows on Friday nights that feature TNA talent to pull them off of their shows during the month of April, so live Impacts definitely appear to be something strongly under consideration.
— TNA officials have had talks about bringing back the X Division World Cup. They are looking to work with CMLL and New Japan in putting together the four-wrestler team concept again this year. However, the last time TNA tried the X Division World Cup, they had tons of problems with outside organizations regarding talent and it was considered to be more trouble than it was worth.
— With last week’s announcement of the TNA/Jakks relationship, there won’t be anymore TNA action figure releases from Marvel. TNA’s deal with Jakks doesn’t kick in until 2010, so it will be two years before any TNA toys are release.
