As noted earlier here on the site, Ric Flair's current going rate for overseas bookings is $30,000 per appearance, which includes two first class tickets for himself and his agent Elaine Gillespie who accompanies him on all of his appearances. Gillespie is insisting on all money up front. The old standard was for top stars to get half the money in advance as a bond. It should be noted that TNA has sent feelers through Hermie Sadler to Flair, but Flair signed a one-year non-compete clause when he got his release from WWE as it pertained to working for TNA specifically.
The following matches are scheduled for the Monday Night iMPACT! tapings:
- AJ Styles, Christian Cage and Jay Lethal vs. Team 3-D and Booker T
- Winners Go to Monsters Ball: The Motor City Machineguns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) vs. LAX (Hernandez y Homicide)
- X-Division Title Match: Sheik Abdul Bashir © vs. Eric Young vs. Jimmy Rave
- ODB vs. Angelina Love
- Plus, Mick Foley to appear and Jeff Jarrett will address Kurt Angle's comments in the The Sun in the UK.
