– After being hospitalized over the Labor Day weekend due to extreme back pains, TNA star Hulk Hogan has left the hospital and is said to be doing better.

Hogan left the hospital in a wheel chair and announced to reporters that were there, including TMZ.com, that he will be getting married very soon to his girlfriend Jennifer McDaniel – as soon as she shaves his legs for him. Hogan told TMZ he’s ready to “move this wedding up, and will be marrying Jennifer right away.”

Hogan is not done with the medical procedures yet – he told TMZ that because he was “too big” for the hospital’s MRI machine, he has to go to another facility for to get looked at. There are reports that Hogan will be planning to wrestle at Bound For Glory this year, whilst i’d love to see that, i certainly wouldn’t like to see Hogan jeopardizing his health as a result.

– There are conflicting reports with regards to Team 3D’s current contract status’. Their contracts did expire recently and they have been absent from TV lately. Many outlets have reported that Brother Ray has stated they have re-signed with TNA on a two year deal, others are contesting this. Either way it is known that Brother Ray has still be functioning in his roles with Creative & Production at TNA in recent weeks.

– As noted earlier here on the website, TNA iMPACT! was pre-empted last night in the US as Spike TV was airing episodes of Gangland during the program’s regular time slot. While Spike nor TNA Wrestling has acknowledged the reason for the preemption, it is said that network officials made the decision to not air iMPACT! this week because they felt it would be hammered in the ratings by the NFL season opener between the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints. TNA Wrestling will instead present the Bound For Glory Kickoff Show on the company’s official website, TNAWrestling.com. Hosted by Jeremy Borash, the webcast will feature a Q & A session with TNA President Dixie Carter where she will answer questions form the fans.

– iMPACT! IS still listed in the schedule on Bravo this week, though no one has been able to confirm what will be airing. Hopefully a “Best of” or The BFG Kick Off show as opposed to a repeat of last weeks show.

– TNA will be running Bound for Glory Kickoff show on TNAWrestling.com. On the show, Jeremy Borash will be with TNA President Dixie Carter as she takes fan questions.

– In the 2011 Unofficial Guide to Disney World, TNA iMPACT! is mentioned in the Universal Studios portion. The book notes that iMPACT! would be “a great idea for a first date.”

– As noted earlier, Jeff Jarrett recently tied the knot with Kurt Angle’s ex-wife, Karen Smedley. The couple were married on August 21 at a small ceremony that few people within TNA Wrestling knew about. People within the organization discovered their marriage after Karen, more than a week later, posted photos from the wedding on her Facebook account. The two have been living together and raising their combined five children (three from Jeff’s first marriage to the late Jill Jarrett; two from Karen’s marriage to Kurt Angle).

– TNA runs today in Canton, Ohio, Saturday in Toledo, Ohio, and Sunday in Windsor, Ontario. Scheduled for those shows are the following matches…

* Mr. Anderson vs. Pope Dinero
* Rhino vs. Matt Morgan
* TNA Tag Team champions The Motor City Machineguns vs. Beer Money
* TNA Knockouts champ Angelina Love vs. Madison Rayne
* Also Appearing: TNA TV champ AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, Kazarian, More
