    Lisa “Tara” Varon is expected back.

    From what we’re told, she was leaving when her contract expired and they did the retirement stipulation in her match. Then, actually before the match took place, she and Dixie Carter either cut a new deal or at least were close on it. But since they had the stipulation out there, they had her lose, leave as scheduled, and are trying to come up with an angle to explain why she can come back.
    IMHO, they need someone else in that division with the huge void Awesome Kong left open. (No pun intended.)

    They are very serious right now about pushing Jay Lethal to near the top.

    Regarding Desmond Wolfe, he’s right now out of favor, which is why at least for right now he isn’t going to be in Fortune because of the loss on TV to Lethal. Basically the decision came down to Kazarian over him for the No. 4 spot, said to be because Kazarian is easier for management to work with and the decision makers see Kazarian as a bigger potential star.

    I don’t share that view but it’s clear right now you’ve got people who only see “television face” and Kazarian is a good looking guy, but simplifying who can be a star based on television face or body as opposed to how they actually get over is taking a very simplistic and unbelievably shallow view of what makes for an effective wrestler. Not sure who came up with the name Fortune, but it was not creative. It was one of the members of the group itself. Creative came up with The Flair Four and F-4, but the group didn’t like either name and someone in the group said Fortune.

    We don’t have details at press time, but it has been confirmed TNA fired Ed Ferrara last week, who was Vince Russo’s booking assistant. It was the hiring of Ferrara that led to the firing of Jim Cornette several months back, because Vince Russo wanted Ferrara in and because of a confrontation years back when Cornette spit on Ferrara in an argument, Ferrara wasn’t going to come in with Cornette in the company.

    Kevin Sullivan, 60, did talk with Dixie Carter when Carter was in New Jersey several weeks back expressing interest in getting back in. Sullivan has spoken with people he knows in the company as well and is said to have booked out an entire year.

    Kevin Sullivan might be good for the company. At least he has a plan.

    TNA this week did a 1.1 with an 0.72 in males 18-to-49, an 0.51 in males 18-34, and 1.4 million viewers. They're slowly rebuilding what they lost in the move to Monday. Quarters were 0.96, 1.04, 1.14, 1.11, 1.16, 1.12, 1.08 and 1.09, which is fairly steady.

    From the WWE side, we’ve been told there have been people pitching for the return of the Dudley Boyz, leading to a DVD release. That’s only something pitched, not something the bigwigs have made a call on.

    There have been people in high places in WWE who in the past have spoken negatively about bringing Bubba back and there’s no indication they’ve changed their minds. Everyone loves Devon, but that’s always been the deal. Bubba is the one who speaks up for both of them and Devon is the nice guy to everyone. They were not booked on the next PPV, but were scheduled to be part of the Lethal Lockdown match at Bound for Glory. Sources within the company still expect them to re-sign.
