TNA News: Blood Tests Given, New Diva, PPV Locations, More


- TNA had all their contracted talent take blood tests last week at the Impact taping.

The decision to do these tests was made internally due to the high amount of blood loss in TNA matches.

- The leading candidate for the first TNA PPV outside of Orlando, FL is Detroit, Michigan, followed by Las Vegas and Atlanta. TNA wants to begin running some PPVs outside of Florida as a way to not only freshen up the look of the shows, but also so they can charge for tickets.

The first PPV outside of Orlando will likely be the October Bound for Glory show.
