TNA beats WWE in the ratings in Germany, TNA expands internationally, tag title update

- TNA beat Raw in the ratings on DMAX in Germany with 220,00 viewers for their debut show. Raw did 200,000 viewers. Raw beat Impact the following week with 170,000 viewers and 120,000 for Impact Wrestling.

- TNA continues to expand internationally with a new deal in Brazil with Esporte Interativo. They will air Impact, Xplosion, and monthly specials. Impact will air at 7pm on Sundays and if there is a monthly special then that would air before Impact at 7pm. TNA Xplosion will air at 7:45pm on Monday nights. The deal for TNA programming puts them on the same station that airs WWE programming.

- Eddie Edwards ended up not having surgery done for his broken heel that he suffered at the last set of pay-per-view tapings. He is expected back in action by May so if the company opts to not do anything with the tag team title at the next set of tapings (3/13 to 3/16 in Orlando) then they should be fine. If the company feels that eight weeks is too long with out the tag team champions then they would have to do something about it within a few days. They have not said anything publicly since their match where they won the titles just aired on the last episode.
