TNA Planning A Top Star's Retirement, Scott Steiner Injured, PPVs Out Of Orlando

source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— TNA is planning for the possibility of Sting retiring when his current contract expires at the end of the year. Company officials want to give him a proper sendoff after watching what WWE did for Ric Flair. Although, Sting has not indicated whether he plans to retire from professional wrestling at the end of the year. At Slammiversary, the plan for Sting is to give an interview pondering his future in wrestling.

— Scott Steiner was too injured to wrestle at the last set of Impact tapings. He suffered some sort of injury during his title match at Sacrifice. TNA had plans for him nab a singles win at one of the tapings, but he was too hurt to wrestle. The injury isn’t serious as he should be back in the ring soon, perhaps as early as tonight’s Impact taping.

— Based on some of the crowd’s reactions at Sacrifice a few weeks ago, it was largely conceded that TNA needs to move the pay-per-views out of Orlando. Some feel that the crowd has seen so much that they need to take them on the road, but others say that that the Orlando fans still react when the product is good, not to mention that it’s much more cost-effective.
