-- As of now, Awesome Kong is not expected to appear at the iMPACT! tapings on Monday and Tuesday. There are unresolved issues on her side, and TNA also has her on the suspended list.
-- Ken Anderson has made it to Orlando and will work the PPV tonight as scheduled.
-- TNA has approved Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley to work the 5/8 ROH show in New York City. TNA had previously stopped allowing their wrestlers to work ROH shows. Note from Ryan Clark: The ROH staff and the security team at the Manhattan Center are some of the rudest people I've met in my life. ROH's head of security Zach Yeager is a complete asshole. I was so enraged last night (and still am today) that I am thinking of stopping all our coverage and promotion of ROH unless Zach himself or someone from ROH emails me so we can get the situation resolved. That's highly unlikely though.
