A number of wrestlers have been creatively frustrated in recent weeks and it is believed that this was her way of showing who’s in control.
— On Thursday’s iMPACT!, Jay Lethal cut a backstage promo announcing the beginning of the “Black Machismo Invitational,” which will see him compete a different “legend” each week. TNA plans on bringing in stars from the 1980s for Lethal to compete against.
