      //->> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITOR
      Colin Vassallo -[editor@...]-

      Wow what a shitty day to be a Manchester United fan. Can't seem to catch a
      break for the past three games. Ugly way to get eliminated, but it's part of
      the game I guess.

      //->> NEWS FROM THE WRESTLING-ONLINE NEWSWIRE
      Web version at -[http://www.wrestling-online.com/news%5d-


      > iMPACT! RATING
      - The live edition of TNA iMPACT! did a 0.85 rating with around 1,195,000
      viewers, up from last week's disastrous 0.6 rating. The show did 0.91 in the
      first unopposed hour and 0.79 in the second hour head to head against RAW.
      (Ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research and put online by PWInsider.com)


      > iMPACT! MOVES PERMANENTLY TO 8PM FROM THIS MONDAY
      - TNA President Dixie Carter announced on her Twitter that iMPACT! is now
      being moved permanently to 8PM, moving one hour earlier to avoid direct head
      to head competition against Monday Night RAW. The move, which was on a test
      run this week, will become official come next Monday and only the second
      hour will now go against RAW's first hour giving TNA a bit of a breather
      having the first hour unopposed. Spike is also adding the iMPACT! replay on
      Thursdays at 9PM.


      > KAREN ANGLE AND JEFF JARRETT GET ENGAGED
      - In an update on her Facebook dated yesterday, former TNA Knockout Karen
      Angle announced that she is now engaged with TNA co-founder Jeff Jarrett.
      The two have been going out since last year when she separated from her
      husband and former TNA and WWE champion Kurt Angle. The "secret"
      relationship was blown during the Bubba "The Love Sponge" radio show mid
      last year when a TNA employee called in anonymously and spilled the beans
      forcing TNA President Dixie Carter to send Jarrett home to avoid further
      conflicts in the locker room. Eventually Jeff and Kurt settled their
      personal differences. Kurt and Karen's divorce was finalized on October 26,
      2008.


      > HEMME, KENDRICK SIGN NEW LONG TERM DEALS
      - Christy Hemme and Brian Kendrick signed new long term deals with TNA
      Wrestling as announced by TNA President Dixie Carter today. Hemme joined TNA
      in 2006 after she was released from her WWE contract but stopped wrestling
      for the company at the end of last year. In December she transitioned to her
      new role as a backstage interviewer on iMPACT! Meanwhile Kendrick made his
      TNA debut on January of this year at the Genesis pay-per-view, losing to
      Amazing Red in his first match. He was released from his WWE contract in
      July of last year.


      > RAW RATING
      - RAW this past Monday pulled a 3.2 rating with 4,598,000 viewers off hours
      3.33 and 3.0. That is down from last week's 3.7 but it faced some stiff
      competition from Dancing With The Stars and the NCAA game. (Ratings compiled
      by Nielsen Media Research and put online by PWInsider.com)


      > WWE EUROPEAN TOUR KICKS OFF TODAY
      - Both RAW and Smackdown rosters have started a long European tour that is
      surely going to generate millions of dollars of revenue for the company in
      both ticket and merchandise sales. In total WWE Superstars and Divas will be
      visiting eight different countries including Austria, Germany, Ireland,
      Scotland, England, France, Switzerland and Turkey and performing for a total
      of twenty two shows. The tour will wrap up on Sunday, April 18 with the
      Smackdown brand in Turkey. Next week's RAW, Smackdown and NXT will be taped
      in London, England.
