Dixie Carter announces new Jeff Hardy contract:
TNA President Dixie Carter’s big announcement on Spike TV’s Bellator last night was that she has re-signed Jeff Hardy.
“I just signed him to a long term deal,” said Carter. “He is sticking around Impact Wrestling for a long time.”
The two sides have been negotiating for several months and it’s believed they took the belt off Aries as a bargaining chip. At one point Matt Hardy suggested they may be returning to WWE and last night Jeff was added to the WWE alumni section of WWE.com, but obviously he’s chosen to stay with TNA.
In terms of merchandise, Jeff Hardy is the biggest star TNA have ever had, outselling Sting, Hulk Hogan and Kurt Angle.
When does TNA’s lease expire in Orlando?:
TNA wrestling’s lease on the “Impact Zone” at Universal Studios, Orlando, expires on March 31st. So they don’t have to fork out for a new deal, the company are taping six of the “One Night Only” pay-per-views in March.
Because they’re all themed and don’t tie in with current storylines, it doesn’t necessarily matter when they choose to air them.

* TNA Joker’s Wild Tag Team Special – featuring enemies teaming and a Battle Royal final
