— Former WWE performer Chris “Tatanka” Chavis will be appearing on tomorrow night’s edition of iMPACT! as “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal’s next opponent in the “Legends” Open Invitational Challenge. The “Bull Buffalo” released the following statement on his official website, www.NativeTatanka.com, regarding TNA:
I’m very thankful for the latest development in my wrestling career. TNA contacted me personally last week to appear at The TNA Impact Zone for television tapings. My opponent this past Tuesday on December 8th was the highly talented Jay Lethal known as “Black Machismo”. The storyline behind Jay Lethal is he portrays Randy “Macho Man” Savage to the tee and he has challenged the Legends of Professional Wrestling in an Invitational Match on TNA Impact viewed on SPIKE TV every Thursday at 9 PM. My match will be aired 1-week from now on Thursday, December 17th. At this point all I can say is don’t miss it because it was an excellent match with the talented Jay Lethal known as “Black Machismo” of TNA! I will be making official announcements at www.NativeTatanka.com in the upcoming weeks!
“Pilamia Yelo” Thanks!
God bless you,
The Native American Tatanka

“The great divide will happen when Eric (Bischoff) wants certain people in the office or better marketing plans and Dixie Carter doesn’t deliver,” predicted one observer.
