As noted earlier here on WrestlingINC.com, Steve "Sting" Borden is backstage at today's TNA "iMPACT! taping in Fayetteville, North Carolina. We can now confirm that he will be revealed as a "surprise opponent" for TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy.
The angle will continue to next month's Victory Road pay-per-view on March 13.
It was reported earlier today that Borden had re-signed with the organization. His prior contract expired in December.
Borden last appeared for TNA Wrestling in October.
As noted earlier, New York Jets linebacker will also appear at the TV tapings tonight. He'll appear in an in-ring segment with the returning Hulk Hogan. Ric Flair vs. AJ Styles & the Jarrett's renewing their wedding vows also takes place tonight. The show is loaded due to the network 'sweeps' period right now.
We'll have live spoilers later tonight.
