Mick Foley has agreed to contractual terms with TNA, according to Wade Keller of PWTorch.com. Foley will debut with the company once he is contractually able to do so. His WWE contract expires at the end of August.
Jason Powell of prowrestling.net says: TNA just taped three weeks of television, so it could be a few weeks before he debuts on Impact. However, the company has a pay-per-view event on Sept. 14, so that’s at least a possibility, assuming he doesn’t have a non-compete clause in his WWE deal. This is obviously a huge signing for TNA and it will be interesting to see whether the company fully utilizes his in-ring, creative, and color commentator skills.
Ken Kennedy is scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery on Friday, according to PWInsider.com. He had been rehabbing the injury in hopes of avoiding the procedure to repair his torn labrum, but it was determined that he needs it. He is expected to miss between four and six months.
Powell says: Tough break for Kennedy. It’s worth noting that his contract is set to expire this fall. However, WWE has the option of extending his current deal by adding the time he is sidelined to the existing contract.
