Ric Flair underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair a torn rotator cuff that's been bothering him for a while. Flair put the surgery off until after TNA's Lockdown pay-per-view so they could finish the storylines.
- As noted before, TNA debuted a new masked Mexican wrestler named Sangriento on Xplosion, defeating Chris Sabin and Jay Lethal in a three-way. The man behind the mask is none other than Amazing Red.
The new masked star was actually an idea from Spike TV officials. They wanted TNA to introduce a character that would counter-act WWE's sin cara. TNA considered various independent wrestlers for the role but decided to use Red. No word yet if he will still wrestle as Amazing Red.
- Jeff Jarrett will be a special guest for the Nashville Sounds at their opener in Nashville today at Greer Stadium. Jarrett will be signing autographs before the game and will speak to students about the importance of reading.
