As Jeremy Borash announced on last night's iMPACT!, a mobile text update was sent to subscribers talking about a new tag team from Japan coming to TNA. The update said the New Japan Pro Wrestling promotion would be sending one of their tag teams to TNA shortly with the "TNA contract" up for grabs at an event this Sunday. New Japan Wrestling's holding an event this Sunday featuring a match pitting Yujiro & Tetsuya Naito vs. Ryusuke Taguchi & Prince Devitt vs. Jado & Gedo vs. Milano Collection AT & Taichi Ishikari. The winner of the match will be working some TNA dates. A few other TNA wrestlers are scheduled to appear the event including IWGP Tag Team Champions Team 3D, Kurt Angle and TNA Tag Team Champions Beer Money, Inc.
For anyone wondering, news from a few weeks ago of a female investing in TNA is indeed a storyline. Karen Angle's name has been thrown out on TV lately, but she appears to be a red herring.
Midway Games, publisher of TNA's first video game, TNA iMPACT!, has filed for bankruptcy as we noted yesterday here on the website. Midway Games still has plans to release a sequel to the TNA video game later this year.
TNAWrestling.com has put up post-show footage from last night's edition of iMPACT!. Sting reacts to Kurt Angle's challenge and Jeremy Borash gets exclusive comments from Kevin Nash as well as Scott Steiner.
