TNA President Dixie Carter announced that Jesse Sorensen will be out of action for up to a year. She wrote on Twitter:
“@TNASorenson met w/doctors this wk & is out for up to a yr. We’re blessed he will be back at all. He’s staying positive. No comment on Zima.”

– Coming out of last night’s TNA Impact Wrestling, Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Hardy has been added to the Victory Road pay-per-view. Victory Road takes place on March 18th from Orlando.


Vince Russo was scheduled to participate in an interview with PWInsider.com next Monday to discuss his departure from TNA Wrestling. The former WCW World Heavyweight Champion, however, decided against doing the interview and issued the following statement to the website regarding his TNA departure:

Despite the continuing rumors, speculation, and hearsay surrounding my departure from TNA Wrestling, in an effort to set the record straight, I was not fired, terminated, released, or let go from the company–it was my decision to walk away, and from there the separation was mutual, amicable and professional.

It simply makes good business sense that where someone of my talent and ability was not going to be used to their capability or capacity, that a parting of the ways was inevitable.

In closing, I’d like to thank my fellow writer and friend, Matt Conway, for giving me purpose, my friend and brother, Jeff Jarrett, for hiring me, Dixie Carter and the entire Carter family, for keeping me employed, but, more importantly, every man and woman in the locker room for giving me the opportunity, and ability, to work in the professional wrestling business for the past twenty years. Without their blood, sweat and tears . . . I would have not been able to support my family and make a living. My greatest loss by far is leaving them behind.

“I wake up in pain pretty much everyday,” he says. “In my right leg, my ACL is gone, I have a broken bone in my neck, there’s one ligament left in my shoulder, these are all injuries that I accumulated and they’re never going to get better. It’s not like they’re going to miraculously grow back.”
