Junior Fatu Not Through With TNA?, Alexa Jade Update, TNA Star Turns 44

source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

- As it turns out, it is not 100% certain that we haven't seen the last of Junior Fatu in a TNA ring. Fatu, who was working without a contract, is saying that he missed the Impact tapings two weeks ago because he had a prior commitment. There seems be some miscommunication between both parties because if they knew in advance, they could have changed the tournament around. At the Impact taping, it was Jeff Jarrett's call to simply say that he was not in the building -- he didn't want them to say anything negative about Fatu on television. Also, there have been some problems regarding travel because he has residences in both Las Vegas, NV and Pensacola, FL. At times they get his trans from Pensacola but they then have to change it.

-- Alexa Jade, who wrestled Gail Kim on Impact on Thursday night, got good reviews from management for her work in the match. It remains to be seen if she gets offered a TNA contract.

-- Kip James turns 44 years old today.
