As noted before, TNA recently hired a consulting firm to look at their TV viewership patterns and the ratings. Part of the research this company will be doing is interviewing wrestling fans. This is similar to what WCW used to do.

As reported earlier, Lisa Marie Varon (a/k/a Tara) announced her impending departure from TNA Wrestling today in a blog post on her MySpace account. Her contract is set to expire and both sides have been unable to reach an agreement on a contract renewal. In an update on the situation, she specifically noted on her Twitter account that her contract will expire on May 21st.

Speaking of Tara, she suffered back and neck injuries at this past weekend's slate of live events. She was filling in for Daffney and Angelina Love, both of whom missed the show due to injury.

More TNA releases are expected to happen soon.
