Raven not at TNA TV tapings, Smiley visits, + Sean Waltman/TNA status
On Wednesday, January 18, 2006 at 4:53 PM EST Raven was not backstage at the TNA iMPACT! tapings last night in Orlando, FL at Universal Studios in order to sell the current storyline that he is "gone" from TNA following the Final Resolution PPV.
Former WCW star Norman Smiley was backstage at the iMPACT! tapings in Orlando. Smiley has attended past TNA events visiting with friends. It doesn't appear that TNA has any plans to bring him in however.
According to reports, there are no plans to use Sean Waltman past the Final Resolution PPV. Based on what is known, TNA hasn't ruled out using him again down the line, but they are cautious about using him long-term giving his track record.
