According to reports, AJ Styles suffered what appears to have been a tendon injury following his match against Samoa Joe at the Sacrifice PPV this past Sunday. Styles is scheduled to appear at the Impact! tapings tonight in Orlando at Universal Studios, but won't be wrestling. TNA is hoping to let Styles rest up and not chance further injury.

There still remains no update regarding Matt Bently's status with TNA. As reported on yesterday, Bently's contract with TNA expired and he did not come to terms with the company when a deal was offered. We do know that both parties are negotiating at the moment, but nothing is being said further right now.

Mike "Bart Gunn" Barton was backstage at the Sacrifice PPV in Orlando this past Sunday as well visiting with friends. Barton had a brief run in TNA back in 2003 when they were still running the weekly Wednesday night PPV events.
