– Laredo Kid and Garza Jr. are working this week’s Impact Wrestling tapings as representatives of the CRASH lucha libre promotion. They will bring something nice to the table for sure.

– There has been talk of some incarnation of LAX being used this week.

– The word backstage is Bruce Prichard will be a heel manager. We are told he’ll be involved with one of the top stars of the company.

– ODB and Rachel Ellering are at the tapings.

– Alberto El Patron is in full-time for TNA and will be receiving a massive push tonight when he debuts at tonight’s Impact Wrestling taping. Patron came to terms within the last few days. Initially, he had been in discussions with the company while John Gaburick was in charge of creative with those talks going back to last fall. When the Jeff Jarrett regime took over, those talks halted. We are told that TNA, perhaps after the losses of Drew Galloway and The Hardys, reached back out to Alberto and came to terms on a deal to debut him at this week’s tapings.
