Warning: The following information contains a spoiler for tonight’s TNA Impact taping
— Former ECW and NWA Champion Raven is backstage in Orlando for tonight’ TNA iMPACT! taping and will appear on tonight’s show. The feeling backstage is that he’s signed a short-term deal with the company.
— Former WWE tag champion Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart is also currently backstage tonight’s taping. Neidhart was the longtime partner of WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart and is the father of WWE Diva Natalya. He’s expected to be used on-camera tonight. For those wondering if this is a result of Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff‘s affiliation and a sign that more early 1990’s wrestlers are headed to TNA (ie. Brutus Beefcake & the Nasty Boys), we’re told that Neidhart was booked for tonight’s show before Hogan and Bischoff signed with the company.
The show that is taped tonight will air next Thursday, 11/12.
