— Following months of inactivity, Rob Van Dam returned to TNA Wrestling programming on Thursday’s episode of iMPACT! Wrestling. He was added to the Garett Bischoff led team for the Lethal Lockdown match at TNA Lockdown. As noted earlier, RVD is back full time and will be promoted as a top star going forward.
— Hulk Hogan issued a response to Scott Steiner’s multi-day outburst toward him and Eric Bischoff on Twitter. “Big Poppa Pump” believes TNA Wrestling is sinking under their watch and that both have behaved unprofessionally since arriving to the organization.
“If he really believes what he’s saying I feel bad for everyone close to him,” Hogan wrote to a Twitter user after being asked about Steiner’s comments. “His future was much greater than this.”
— Thursday’s episode of iMPACT! Wrestling saw Eric Young and ODB tie the knot inside a Steel Cage. The Knockout addressed the ceremony on Twitter.
“Best thing bout gettin married is the honeymoon,I’m gonna b walkin funny for awhile,” she wrote. “Thanks to all the @IMPACTWRESTLING fans you all rock,I read all my tweets,I will see all your crazy asses in Nashville.”
The wedding was interrupted by Sarita and Rosita, who performed a striptease in a failed attempt to get Young to bail on his bride. ODB threatened Rosita over this and subsequent taunts on Twitter, writing: “really b*tch,u look like a lil girl waitin to hit puberty,c your skinny a*s at lockdown.”
