Dixie Carter has told at least some of the talent that a major announcement is coming very soon. There have been claims from people that they are negotiating with someone who will “shock people.” There is also talk that they have a new signing that they expect to bring buzz to the product. There is no word on who those people are. Mick Foley has denied that it’s him. I can’t think of anyone else that it could be except for CM Punk.
TNA talent has been told that the company will be back up and running on January 7th. That date has been reported before. Of course nothing happens if they don’t finalize their TV deal. As noted before, the networks in play are Velocity, CMT, and WGN. There is one other but that has not come out yet.
