— It was reported last month that Christy Hemme had sustained a neck injury while training in the ring with AJ Styles for her Women’s Championship match at the Genesis pay-per-view. As a result, Hemme was unable to compete at Genesis against Awesome Kong. Her injury reportedly require surgery that would have put her out of action for an undetermined length of time. In an update on the situation, the TNA Knockout is already back in action. Hemme wrestled at an indy show this past Saturday in Brampton, Ontario.

In the demos, the show drew 0.75 in Males 18-34 and 0.77 in Males 35-49.
— TNA had been hoping to do the Kevin Nash vs. Samoa Joe match at this Sunday’s Against All Odds pay-per-view, but it doesn’t look like Nash will be be ready on time. The match will more than likely take place at next month’s Destination X pay-per-view.
