— It has been confirmed that TNA recently suspended Awesome Kong. A decision was made to suspend the TNA Knockout after she refused to appear on the company’s recent UK tour. As noted earlier, Kong and TNA are in the midst of a contractual dispute as she has asked repeatedly for a raise.
Specifics of her suspension remain unclear as it’s possible the suspension will conclude before Sunday’s pay-per-view and the next round of television tapings next week. It is believed that she was suspended for a few weeks.
— Though the official Universal Studios schedule lists Mar. 8-9 as dates for iMPACT! tapings, talent schedules still list Mar. 1-2. Meanwhile, it’s possible that TNA hasn’t updated the talent schedule to reflect a change back to the Mar. 8-9 tapings that are advertised on the Universal Studios website. Whatever the case may be, talent are scheduled to be in Orlando on Mar. 1 unless they hear otherwise.
