A segment aired during the 9/12 TNA Impact Wrestling “No Surrender” special on Spike TV announcing that Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson have both been pulled from TNA television by Bellator a little under two months before they fight on 11/2 in Long Beach, California.
Segment details courtesy of Josh Boutwell’s recap at this link.
“In the back Hogan talks to Manik and he says he doesn’t know what it is but when he puts the Manik mask on he takes it to another level. Manik agrees and says he wants to test himself against Jeff Hardy. Hogan agrees and then Dixie Carter walks in. She says that she got a call from BELLATOR and they’re pulling Rampage and Tito away from TV because they want to protect their fighters. Hogan says after the PPV fight they can feed Tito to Rampage on Impact and Dixie agrees.”
