It was announced to the live crowd prior to Friday night’s TNA iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings that Alberto El Patron had vacated the TNA World Championship because he “didn’t want to win the title from Lashley in the manner that he did”. As reported on Thursday night, El Patron defeated Lashley to win the title following two ref bumps. Earl Hebner ran out following the match and told TNA officials what happened.
Homicide was backstage at the TNA iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings on Friday night. The TNA Tag-Team Championship belts were also backstage at Friday night’s TV tapings. That’s interesting to note as The Hardy Boys had the championship belts when their contracts expired earlier this week. Matt Hardy’s wife, Reby Sky, had threatened to keep the titles due to the way TNA treated Matt and Jeff during contract negotiations. The Hardys either agreed to return the belts or new ones were made.
Karen Jarrett, Magnus and Chris Masters were backstage at Thursday night’s TNA iMPACT! Wrestling TV tapings but were not used. Karen Jarrett is expected to be featured in an on-air role in the coming weeks.
It is now confirmed that Matt Morgan will be returning to TNA iMPACT! Wrestling in the next several weeks. Morgan is scheduled for the TV tapings this weekend in Orlando, FL. He was not at Thursday or Friday night’s TV tapings.
