- Banks added the following regarding TNA's meeting with Spike TV this week: "As most of you read on the internet, TNA and SpikeTV officials met this past week to plan out our debut on the network. Both sides were said to be ecstatic at the new working relationship, and both offices are already working in conjunction on an upcoming media blitz to hype our start on the network. SpikeTV.com and TNAwrestling.com will also be teaming up in the upcoming months to feature several new interactive features for fans on our respective websites."
- TNA has plans to run another "InterAction Fanfest" during the weekend of the Bound for Glory PPV in October. Banks added that Bound for Glory "will become one of our yearly, crown-jewel events."
- A new section will be added on TNA's website that will feature all of the impressive Pay Per View openings David Sahadi has produced for TNA since the Victory Road PPV last November. The section will be updated monthly after each Pay Per View event.
- Current X Division Champion Christopher Daniels will have a new t-shirt that will be available for purchase on ShopTNA.com this weekend.
