Backstage TNA Booking, Rhino Storyline, Knockouts Plans
By Steve Carrier | February 13, 2008
- "Bullet" Bob Armstrong and Payton Banks, among other TNA Superstars, are currently working on a pay-per-appearance deal.
- Most of TNA iMPACT's booking is being written by Vince Russo, with Dutch Mantel doing most of the booking for the Knockouts division. Jeff Jarrett is said to be the one who comes up with the feuds and matches, then passes them along to Vince Russo to come up with the angles and storylines. The current list of agents and producers working with TNA includes Disco Inferno, Scott D'amore, Simon Diamond and D'Lo Brown. One of the members of the indy group Phi Delta Slam, who last appeared on the 12/20 iMPACT with Eric Young, is currently working the gorilla position backstage.
- The storyline surrounding Rhino's departure and return is that he suffered the alcohol relapse last year because of James Storm's acting in their feud and he went to get treatment, now he is back.
