— Traci Brooks has left the company. Brooks reportedly is just moving onto something else as opposed to quitting or being fired. She left on good terms with the company. A return is possible down the line, but not anytime soon.

— As noted earlier here on the site, X-Division wrestler Tony Nese requested and was granted a release from TNA Wrestling. Nese posted the following to his Twitter about leaving the company: I have recently been approached with an opportunity to step in the ring with The Great Muta, a wrestling legend, and one of All Japan Pro Wrestling’s top wrestlers Kai. This is an opportunity that I feel with help me further my goals and career. This event will be provided via IPPV and unfortunately my TNA contract did not allow me to perform on such events. I requested that an exception would be granted given my lack of appearances but was denied. My next action was to request a release as I think it will be in my best interest. I would like to thank TNA Wrestling for helping me achieve one of my goals as it is very few in this business that are able to say they have. I would also like to thank all the people that support me as this is just a small chapter coming to an end in my career and I have many more exciting opportunities in my future to come.

Bruce Prichard and Al Snow attended last night’s Ohio OVW TV Taping to evaluate talent. King Mo will head there to train as soon as he’s physically cleared to.
