    D’Angelo ‘The Pope’ Dinero recently suffered a labral tear in his shoulder. Though he appeared at last week’s television tapings to take part in a segment promoting the Top 10 Contender’s Rankings, he told friends he’s a month or two away from being healthy enough to return to the ring.

Needless to say, expect a few—as Foley’s wrestling persona Cactus Jack would say—bang-bangs of explosions in this high-octane adventure.” Riches worked with Foley to turn the novel Tietam Brown into a screenplay.
  • The next set of TNA iMPACT! tapings will take place on June 14 and 15 in the Impact Zone.
  • TNA has announced that the Victory Road pay-per-view event will take place on July 11. Meanwhile, Hard Justice will be held on Aug. 8. Both shows will take place at the Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida.
