— TNA management is viewing Vince Russo’s departure from TNA as “business as usual” and not something that will make a big difference when it comes to the creative team. One of the main factors that likely led to Russo’s departure was Bruce Prichard being brought in and pushing for a slower pace to iMPACT!, concentrating more on a few angles, and not trying to cram so much into one episode. The TNA creative team currently consists of Bruce Prichard, Eric Bischoff, Dave Lagana and Matt Conway. Sources close to both sides say there is no heat between TNA and Russo.

— TNA is set to tape three episodes of Impact Wrestling this week.

— Kurt Angle will be going back to a freshly shaved head and face at this week’s tapings.
