Mike Johnson of is reporting today that stories first noted by Wade Keller of The Pro Wrestling Torch in regards to a backstage incident between Samoa Joe and TNA creative team member Scott D'Amore at TNA's last set of TV tapings last Monday were quote "a bit exaggerated." The initial confrontation between Joe and D'Amore took place because of the planned finish that was set for the Joe vs. Rhino match that will air this Thursday night on Spike TV. All parties were eventually able to reach a compromise when it came to shoot TV that night. However, reports by Keller that Joe has started to feel slightly jaded are not exaggerated as this was yet another example of TNA's management and writing team being focused on other things, something Joe reportedly isn't very fond of lately.
