TOP OF TNA – TNA Taking Impact LIVE; Releases Anthony Nese
On the same day in which TNA announced it came to terms on the release of young X star Anthony Nese, it announced it will trial a live recording format for Impact on May 31, 2012, the same day in which the show moves to 8 PM EST. According to TNA president – and friend of IN THE ROOM – Dixie Carter, the move will be a temporary one over the Summer as TNA evaluates how it is received. Regarding Nese (who only days earlier made headlines when he asked a question of Bobby Fish on The Fish Tank on www.thebradyhicks.com, the young star mentioned in a statement – also confirmed by his friend “The Greek God” Papadon last night on The Papadon Show LIVE right here on the site – that he was booked to perform at a Pro Wrestling Syndicate show in Rahway, New Jersey, June 1st, in a tag team match against The Great Muta. Nese, when made aware the show had been changed to an iPPV, went to TNA officials and asked for an exception to be made to allow him to continue to fulfill his booking (his contract, like others in TNA, forbids talent from performing on another company’s PPV or distributed DVDs). After being told they would not allow him to wrestle this dream match – and still refusing to book him more – Nese requested his release.

TBH.COM NEWS – The Fish Tank, The Papadon Show Feature Very Special Guests
Both The Fish Tank (Mondays LIVE 10:30 PM EST) and The Papadon Show (Thursdays LIVE 9:30 PM EST) took interaction with fans to a whole new level this week. Bobby Fish was shocked to receive an e-mail question of now-former TNA star Tony Nese, who asked “Why am I so much better than you?” A few nights later, Papadon was caught off guard on his own show when he received a caller from “Adam in South Philly,” who turned out to be none other than rising independent wrestling star Adam Cole!
