TNA Dropping A Character, Who Is Suicide?, Bad Turn Out For TNA, Joe vs. Booker

— TNA has no plans to use Frank Trigg at the moment. However, it’s not due to his match with AJ Styles at No Surrender flopping in front of the live Toronto crowd. Some people in TNA were upset with the Toronto crowd as they believe he did a great job and that they wouldn’t give the match a chance. Trigg isn’t going to be used for the time being because he doesn’t fit into current storyline plans. With him as Kurt Angle’s friend, he doesn’t fit in with the new battle of respect storyline between the older and younger wrestlers. He doesn’t fit well on the older side either since he’s new, and the feeling is that he can only be used as a heel. He may be brought back should something arise.

— According to a fan in attendance, TNA drew approximately 500 fans to last Saturday’s house show at the BankUnited Center, which is the 8,000-seat multi-purpose arena on the campus of the University of Miami. TNA didn’t fare too much better the next day at the Lakeland Civic Center in Lakeland, Florida as the show drew approximately 600 fans in a 10,000 seat venue. Both shows featured Samoa Joe vs. Booker T in the main event.

— The website has been updated with a new graphic as well as a promo video that recently aired on Impact. Text on the page reads: “THE TIME IS DRAWING NEAR…”
