More On TNA's New World Title Belt, Rhino's TNA Contract, & More
-- As of this past weekend, Rhino has not signed a new deal with TNA and the belief is that his deal is either near the end or he is working on a nightly basis.
-- Jeff Hardy is due back in a North Carolina Superior Court on December 8th for another hearing on his drug charges from September 2009. TNA will tape the last four iMPACT episodes of 2010 from December 6th through the 9th, so Hardy might miss those tapings.
-- SPOILER ALERT: As noted late Monday night here on the website, TNA introduced a new World Championship belt at Monday's iMPACT! tapings from Orlando. During an in-ring segment, Hulk Hogan threw the old belt in the trash and presented Jeff Hardy with the a one. The segment will TONIGHT on SpikeTV at 9EST. Unlike the previous traditional black and gold belt, the new belt has a red strap and some very uniquely-shaped metal plates. So far, most of the feedback online has been negative, with many fans calling it ugly. You can see it at this link.
