Hendricks trained for six weeks and made his wrestling debut at an independent event in a match with The Motor City Machine Guns to face Petey Williams, N8 Mattson, & Tyson Dux at the end of January. Several other TNA wrestlers will be featured on the show which will air on Saturday.
– There are still plans for Samoa Joe to have a run with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship later this year. It is likely that Samoe Joe will face Kurt Angle for the title next month at Lockdown, however, nothing is known regarding the outcome.
– To follow-up on an earlier item, the reason why Tomko is finished with New Japan Pro Wrestling is because they were not going to renew his contract because they are struggling financially, reports Dave Metlzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Tomko was said to be disappointed because he really enjoyed working in Japan for the company. According to Meltzer the only person that New Japan Pro Wrestling has a commitment too as a top foreigner is Tomko’s tag team partner Giant Bernard (A-Train from WWE).
