— Gerweck.net is reporting that at least a few WWE wrestlers were backstage at tonight’s live TNA Impact show in Orlando. Among those backstage were ECW Champion Chavo Guerrero and SmackDown star Shannon Moore. Guerrero’s uncle Hector Guerrero is the Spanish announcer for TNA and he was shown on television during tonight’s broadcast alongside colleague Willie Urbina (whose name was mistakenly spelled as Willie “Rubina” when his graphic was shown).
— TNA wrestlers and management invited approximately 700 “VIPs” and so only 200 fans were let into the venue. Anywhere from 700 to 3,000 fans were turned away at the show — which is free by the way. A number of fans had waited 4 to 6 hours for the event. Outside, there was a rather hostile scene as a loud “F— TNA” chant broke out.
— TNA President Dixie Carter spent time greeting fans at tonight’s live Impact taping. She also spoke to fans who had been turned away from the event.
