Notes on Monday’s TNA Tapings, Joe vs. Angle & More

Archive has reported that at Monday’s iMPACT! tapings in Orlando, FL, Jim Cornette will have a “surprise” for the Christian Coalition that “involves a ladder.” Also scheduled for next week’s show are Kurt Angle’s wife and daughter (as Angle takes “Dr. Nash’s” advice to spend more time with his family), Senshi and Daniels vs. Lethal and Dutt, an appearance by Dustin Rhodes, Team 3-D in action and more.

Also from “We’ve received many emails from fans asking if Kurt Angle’s IWGP Championship will be on the line in the “Winner Takes All” bout against Samoa Joe at Hard Justice. The answer is yes. Whoever wins the match will control the TNA World Heavyweight, TNA X Division, TNA Tag Team and IWGP Championships.”

Finally, in his latest column on, Brandon Finch suggests that Rhodes’ problem with Chris Harris may stem from jealosy over the fact that Harris — like Rhodes years ago — is being touted as the next rising star in wrestling.
