Was Flair Backstage At iMPACT?, Abyss Storyline, Dreamer

— Ric Flair could be out of the ring for around 4 months with his injury, but can still appear on camera. There’s no word on why he wasn’t used at either of this week’s TNA iMPACT tapings, nor was he backstage.

— Abyss is not expected back to TV until late February or early March. He is out selling the injuries suffered when Crimson attacked him with Janice (the board with nails). Abyss will likely be a part of the local promotion for the Lockdown PPV since he’s from the Cincinnati area.

— Tommy Dreamer is still working for TNA as an agent, but hasn’t been used as a wrestler. He left WWE because he wanted to wrestle more, while they wanted him in a backstage role. Now he’s with a new company and the same thing has happened.

— Kurt Angle has been added to this weekend’s house shows in Penscola, FL and Hattiesburg, MS.
