— In recent weeks that has been talk among TNA officials about parting ways with some of the undercard wrestlers not being used. Since September or so, TNA hasn’t felt the need to use everyone at every set of tapings, so a lot of talents are going unused. There has been talk on this for a while, but discussions have increased lately, reports PWInsider.com. Basically, the reason why TNA hardly ever fires people outright WWE-style is because Jeff Jarrett & Dixie Carter have soft spots and really doesn’t like firing people. So far this year, with the exception of Pat Kenney & Glen Gilberti (although their contracts were up), no one’s been outright fired. Everyone that left either left on their own accord, or their contracts were up, or they were on a pay-per-appearance deal and no longer being used. They have yet to fire someone in the middle of a contract (Karen Angle’s status with TNA still remains unclear).
— It was announced on Thursday’s Impact that Sharmell would be wrestling ODB at next month’s Final Resolution pay-per-view. Also, Awesome Kong will defending her Knockouts title on the card. Her opponent has yet to be determined.
