Wrestlingdotcom.com has learned the following as it relates to new talent debuting at the TNA Wrestling at the Hard Justice Pay-Per View and IMPACT.
It appears Elijah Burke will make his TNA debut at the PPV. There was a brief video that aired during Thursday’s Impact that noted “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero will debut on that show. Burke has used the name “Black Pope” dating back to his WWE days. Burke posted the following message on his Twitter page after the vignette aired. “I wonder who in the Black Pope that could be…My team of highly paid lawyers are looking into this ASAP. PHS: Pope has spoken.”
Also it looks as if new talent will hit the Knockouts Division as Jeremy Borash stated on his Twitter account that Ayako Hamada will be starting in TNA after the Hard Justice pay-per-view. “Expect the Knockouts Division to get more physical with the arrival of “Hamada” from Japan. She will be starting after the Hard Justice PPV,” Borash wrote. “Watched a DVD of her matches against Kong in Japan. They were so physically brutal, I needed to be stretchered out of my own living room.”
