There is a ton of stuff going on behind the scenes right now within TNA Wrestling. As of this writing, there is no deal between Paul Heyman and TNA. Talks are ongoing with Dixie Carter doing most of the talking with Paul.

Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan were both not at the pay-per-view and both will not be at TV this week. According to a source, Bischoff is at a bike rally and Hogan is recovering from recent back surgery. One source also noted that Hogan wasn't going to be there if the Heyman deal got close as he seems to have some issues with it.

It should also be noted that TNA president Dixie Carter held a company meeting today before the iMPACT! tapings, but it was just to tell everyone to tighten up their ring work. Paul Heyman was not mentioned although he was on the mind of management and talents.

We hope to have more shortly. Stay tuned as things may get quite interesting in the coming weeks. This is backstage wrestling politics to a tee.
