MR. DAVE HEBNER: TNA MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT In recent weeks, longtime wrestling official Dave Hebner has been seen watching several TNA matches. The reason for Hebners appearances is still unknown, but TNAwrestling.com has learned Mr. Hebner has been telling associates he is serving as a TNA management consultant. According to several TNA stars, Hebner has been reporting directly to TNA management following each event for a series of closed door meetings. Thus far, Mr. Hebner has avoided contact with TNA stars and staff regarding his arrival in Total Nonstop Action.

DANIELS LOBBYING TO BE ADDED TO X CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH Needless to say, The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels wasnt pleased to hear that The Phenomenal AJ Styles would be receiving the X Championship shot against Samoa Joe at Against All Odds. Based on his opinion AJ cost him his chance at the gold by throwing in the towel at Final Resolution, Daniels has been lobbying Championship Committee member Larry Zbyszko to add him to the Pay-Per-View bout on Sunday, February 12. It remains to be seen if Larry Z will grant Daniels his wish or stand firm on the current Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles bout.
