Unless things change Tomko will not be around until after the Sacrifice PPV. He has reportedly been suspended from the company due to working the IGF show the day of the Lockdown Fan Fest. Bill Behrens usually books the Japan dates for TNA talent, but Tomko was booking his dates on his own, since he got a deal with New Japan on his own. This is why AJ and Tomko dropped the tag team titles on Impact after the Lockdown PPV. Tomko was announced for Impact as part of the tag team tournament last week.
The angle where Cornette talked about all of the women complaining was a half shoot from management to the women. The plan is for one of the ladies to get their head shaved almost completely bald at the PPV.
Kurt Angle was disappointed with his match at Lockdown with Samoa Joe. Angle did not suffer a concussion or neck injury as was being reported, but did suffer a rib cartilage injury. He then aggravated it by wrestling three nights later against Joe in their rematch.
Internally TNA was disappointed with the Impact rating after Lockdown and Samoa Joe's title win.
The World X-Cup has been pushed back. It was to begin this month, but will now be moved to June and finish up at the July PPV.

OPINION: The Knockouts are the ONLY thing keeping the REST of the TNA crapfest afloat. If it weren't for the ladies, TNA's ratings would sink even LOWER than 1.0. Samoa Joe as the new champ sure didn't help!
