- There has been some controversy this week over the injury status of James Storm. In the midst of the biggest push of his career, Storm suffered a concussion at the October 26th Impact Wrestling taping in Macon, Georgia. The match aired on the November 10th edition of the show on Spike TV. Storm, who admitted the concussion was the third of his career and said the injury was legitimate, went on to work TNA house shows in California and Canada. In interviews this week, Storm said his contact was limited on live events and TNA was protective of his health. Storm suffered from post-concussion syndrome with side effects including lack of balance and sensitivity to light. Storm is currently on the TNA cruise to the Bahamas before he is scheduled to return to the ring Sunday at TNA Final Resolution against Kurt Angle.

- Are you tired of the arguing between Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler on Raw Supershow? The office doesn't seem to be as they've been using the same style between Matt Striker and Josh Mathews on recent episodes of WWE Superstars. Striker plays the heel role that Cole plays while Mathews is the babyface in the new argumentative format.

- Kofi Kingston is currently at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina where he is visiting with troops and doing media for Sunday's Tribute to the Troops taping.

- Three out of the past six episodes of WWE Superstars have been opened by Justin Gabriel matches. He has had the opening bout on 11/3, 11/10 and 12/9.
