TNA has added a live PPV on 4/26. TNA cut back to four live PPVs last year (January's Genesis, April's Lockdown, June's Slammiversary and October's Bound for Glory) so the company adding a live PPV in April breaks away from last year's strategy. Whether there will be additional live PPVs added, we can't confirm. They have several One Night Only tapings scheduled over the next few months, so those taped PPVs are continuing for the near future.
We have gotten a lot of email about Vince Russo in the last two weeks. As I noted in my PWInsider Elite audio today, several people have told me they believe he is back in some form for the company, possibly consulting on creative. Last week, I emailed Eric Barnes, who handles Public Relations for TNA, and he denied that Russo was back. The show certainly has a Russo-esque feel to it right now, so we will have to see. He was not at the Huntsville taping.
One source in the company claimed this evening that this past Thursday's Impact was the highest rated episode in two years for the company.
