– Former WCW wrestler Masahiro Chono, 45, said he wants to team up with Kevin Nash at New Japan Pro Wrestling’s annual Tokyo Dome show next month. He also said he wants to join TNA to be a member of the Main Event Mafia. Chono was a member of the “nWo Japan” faction during the group’s glory days.
– TNA changed the name of the “TNA Originals” because officials thought it was a weak name, especially considering that Rhino and Team 3-D are in the group with Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley eventually getting involved. Officials talked about naming the group based on “X” for Xtreme. They tossed around the name “Team Xtacy” as well, but realized it was bad idea. And so they ended up calling the group “TNA Front Line.”
– TNA has launched an all-new website for TNA fans in the United Kingdom promoting next month’s big European tour. You can visit the site at www.uktna.co.uk.
