Shawn Daivari Returns To TNA + Celebrity Visitor At IMPACT!
-- Former WWE talent Shawn Daivari worked last night's iMPACT! taping in Orlando, Florida, beating independent wrestler Ricky Reyes via Death Valley Driver. He was announced as Shawn Daivari. Over the weekend, Daivari denied reports that he had re-signed with TNA Wrestling. He didn't, however, deny the report of him working this week's iMPACT! tapings.
-- Jalil Patel, an Indian film actor, model and singer who has appeared in numerous Bollywood films, advertisements and music videos, was spotted in the VIP area at last night's iMPACT! taping in Orlando, Florida. He was seated off-camera and had four to five security guards around him at all times. (Thanks to Nick) Patel worked a dark match against Ring of Honor competitor Roderick Strong at the August 10, 2010 iMPACT! taping, which he lost.
-- As noted yesterday here on the website, there has been no determination made regarding if and when Jeff Hardy will return to TNA Wrestling. It was reportedly discussed that Hardy would return as a babyface, but sources say the subject was never broached. Hulk Hogan criticizing him a promo on the March 17 iMPACT! was merely done to explain his absence from Immortal. Hardy's status with the company likely won't be discussed until after his April 20 court hearing in Moore County, North Carolina.
