– Hulk Hogan called into The Bob & Tom Show this morning and the first thing he did was cut a huge in-character promo regarding Ric Flair. Hogan said “Naitch” left a rambling message on his answering machine last night being really upset that he didn’t invite him to tonight’s iMPACT!.
Later during the call-in, Hogan said he is not going to make pro wrestling like it was, but rather, better than it used to be. He also put over AJ Styles, calling him the best pound-for-pound wrestler in the world today.
– Thus far, only three matches have been announced for tonight’s live iMPACT! special:
* For The Knockouts Championship: Tara defends against ODB
* For the Knockouts Tag Team Championship: Sarita and Taylor Wilde defend against Awesome Kong and Hamada
* The stars of the X Division will square off in a Steel Asylum Match (according to TNA commercials that aired during Saturday’s UFC special on Spike)
– Mick Foley has a new column up at the following link where he talks about tonight’s live iMPACT! special, the renewal of the “Monday Night War,” and the passing of “Dr. Death” Steve Williams. In a trivia note, his first WWE Championship victory was televised ten years ago today.
