» Booker T, Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner will not be wrestling at Slammiversary. The idea is that because they all lost to Samoa Joe on television, none of them will be able to wrestle at the pay-per-view event. However, they are expected to appear at the event.
» Sarah Stock was backstage at last week's set of iMPACT! tapings, but not used. However, vignettes were filmed to build for her eventual debut in the company, although her debut is being delayed as a result of the sudden emergence of Lisa Marie Varon. The top female babyface spot in TNA was originally pegged for Stock, but it now belongs to Victoria/Tara.
» TNA is going with the name "Tara" for former WWE Diva Victoria (Lisa Marie Varon). The new deal in TNA is to use new names so they own all names and merchandising rights. The idea here is that unless you have a huge name that is already your own name such as Kurt Angle, you will be given a new name most of the time.
