- The women who played the drug addict in the AJ Styles and Dixie Carter storyline on Impact last week was a local actress. That had been the plan from the beginning but TNA was disappointed in her performance.
- The angle where Sting was attacked by three mystery men on Impact will likely sit on the back-burner for the time being and could be an angle for Bound For Glory in October. The attack was done as a way to get Sting off TV for a while so people wouldn't wonder why he's not in the Bound For Glory Series. TNA officials have not decided who will be revealed under the masks yet. The general feeling on the segment was that it needed to be strong but came off low-rent.
- Independent women's wrestler Taeler Hendrix will have her Gutcheck evaluation on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling but there was disappointment within the company over her performance last week when she wrestled Tara. Apparently there was also some disappointment over both her look and her work in the ring. There was also heat on agent Al Snow for choosing her as the latest Gutcheck participant.
