Officials are indeed trying to get the Ultimate Warrior to come to TNA. If he comes in, he would likely tag team with Sting. Should Warrior end up coming to TNA, it won't be happening at Slammiversary because no deal is done. In a trivia note, WCW's original plan for Warrior was to have him debut at the record setting July 7, 1998 Monday Nitro show at the Georgia Dome, which ended up featuring the memorable Goldberg title win over Hollywood Hogan. WCW's plan was to have Sting & Warrior team up to take on Hogan & The Giant. However, WCW couldn't seal the deal with Warrior in time and the match was called off. Warrior and Sting did team up at one point though. The two wrestled Hulk Hogan & Bret Hart on October 11, 1998 on Monday Nitro.
The Miami Herald has an article on TNA referee Earl Hebner, which you can read at MiamiHerald.com. Hebner said he has no desire to return to World Wrestling Entertainment, but is okay with his son Brian returning. "I would never go back to WWE, but if that's what he wants. The reason I wouldn't go back to WWE is because I wouldn't be happy there. Even though it is more money than TNA pays me, TNA makes me happier. It's not a money factor for me now. It's being happy doing what you're doing and enjoying it."
TNA will be holding a house show at the ALLTEL Arena in North Little Rock, Arkansas on Sunday, July 20. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m on TicketMaster.com.
Side note from Ryan Clark: I apologize for the lack of news over the weekend. I was away for the weekend. We rented a cabin in the beautiful Lake George, NY area and had an absolute blast. For those who have never been to Lake George and are looking for a good vacation spot - this is it. I hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend as well and now it's back to business as usual.
