Impact Wrestling News: Details on Ric Flair signing, Identity of Mystery Woman, More Shows, & More
- At a press conference to promote the upcoming edition of Impact Wrestling from Madison Square Garden, Hulk Hogan announced that Impact Wrestling had signed "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair to a deal. Details are now coming out regarding the deal. The word is that the deal is for one year and requires that Flair only work T.V. and pay per views but there are incentives built in if he agrees to appear at house shows. Officials had hoped to get Flair signed in time to appear on February 4th but they hit a snag in negotiations and weren't able to get him signed until the show was over so the decision was made to hold off debuting him until Victory Road which conveniently happens to be in Charlotte this year.
- The mystery woman who attacked Jacqueline last week on Impact is former NWA World Women's Champion MsChif. MsChif's name was added to the roster page earlier today, indicating that she has officially signed with the company.
- Eric Bischoff, his business partner Jason Hervey, as well as members of Prokhorov entertainment met with representatives from Spike TV recently about potentially bringing Impact Wrestling programming back to the channel.
- The fate of the Knockouts division is still a big talking point amongst people backstage. It is said that only a very select few are aware of what the final decision is, which will be revealed this week on Impact Wrestling.
- Last week's edition of Impact Wrestling scored a 1.4 rating. Although it's still not what officials are hoping for, it is good news that they were finally able to stop the ratings skid that had been occurring the past three weeks, actually gaining a few viewers from last week's total, despite having the same overall rating.
Preview for 3/4/2010
- Impact Wrestling returns to the Mecca of sports entertainment, Madison Square Garden for a night that promises to be filled with tension.
- Did the New World Order cross the line? As last week's show was concluded, a N.W.O. promo was shown on the video screen, featuring Kevin Nash inside Jeff Jarrett's home. Kevin threatened to cause harm to Jeff's family if Jeff didn't agree to meet him and Eric Bischoff in the middle of the ring this week to discussion a proposition. Tensions are bound to run high when Jeff Jarrett meets Kevin and Eric in the middle of the ring to kick things off.
- Last week, Christopher Daniels tried to get Kazarian to "take out" Mistico because he felt that Mistico was making a mockery of the X Division. Not only did Kazarian not attack Mistico following their match last week but to show that there is no ill-will between the two, he challenged Mistico to an X Division Championship match this week.
- The debut of Jay Lethal and Eric Young's new tag team, The New Mega Powers, didn't quite go the way they hoped. Hoping to start over, this week The New Mega Powers face off against LAX.
- Who is Matt Morgan conspiring with? When pressed for information, the only clues Matt would give is that he and this person would be at Madison Square Garden this week. Who is this person and what are he and Matt Morgan planning?
- Also scheduled for this week...Bobby Lashley finally gets an opportunity to get his hands on "The Pope" when he teams up with The British Invasion to take on Beer Money and "The Pope" in a six man tag team match...A.J. Styles faces off against "Big Sexy" Kevin Nash...The finals of the Television Championship tournament. Raven faces off against Kurt Angle to determine who will become the first ever Impact Wrestling T.V. Champion.
- All this and more, Thursday March 4th live from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York only on FX!
