As noted earlier, former TNA World Tag Team Champion Tomko is rumored to be revealed as the mystery person who attacked TNA World Champion AJ Styles in a pre-taped segment that aired on Thursday night’s TNA iMPACT!. It isn’t believed Tomko has signed a long-term deal with TNA but that very well could change shortly. WWE was also said to be interested him. The reports that he had a huge ‘ego’ came from one person and was posted on another website. That is one mans opinion as others said he was just fine and seemed happy to be back with the company.
Last night’s 10/22 TNA iMPACT! did a 1.1 cable rating. This is up from last week’s 0.94 rating and the 1.0 rating from two weeks ago.
