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. Here are the list of new PPV names and concepts… * TNA X-Travaganza – featuring the stars of the X-Division * TNA Joker’s Wild Tag Team Special – featuring enemies teaming and a Battle Royal final * TNA Hardcore Justice 2 – “hardcore” show * TNA “10 Reunion” – Stars from the early days of TNA facing off inside the Six-Sided ring * TNA Knockouts Knockdown – One night Knockout tournament with the first round being all stipulation matches and the final four in a “test of their stamina” to see who the final victor is * TNA International Incident – One night tournament featuring talent from the United States, India, Mexico, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Japan & the UK with the winner earning a title shot * TNA X-Division World Cup Tournament – four teams of X-Division wrestlers in a one night tournament featuring singles, tag, six man and eight man tag matches * TNA World Cup of Wrestling – Four teams, each captained by a TNA wrestler featuring a Heavyweight wrestler, a tag team and an X-Division wrestler battling in singles, tag and stipulation matches. The finale will be a “two ring, triple chance Battle Royal.” _____________________________________________________________ New Dynamite Kid documentary teaser video: HighSpots.com have released a new teaser video for their upcoming Dynamite Kid documentary “A Matter of Pride”… The film is being premiered in Kid’s hometown of Manchester, England, in March. _____________________________________________________________ Poster for The Call starring David Otunga: Here is the poster for WWE Studios film “The Call” starring Halle Berry and WWE Superstar David Otunga in a supporting role as a police officer… In order to save a young girl’s life, an emergency operator must confront a killer from her past.
