The Wrestleline Report-Thursday

It appears former WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is set to make his MMA debut for for K-1's offshoot "Heroes" on May 19 in Las Vegas.

Christopher Daniels is set to get a new gimmick here soon, and won't be doing any wrestling until he unveils his new gimmick.

Orlando Jordan was visiting at the last TNA ppv backstage and looking for work. His name has come up in the past, but as of now he isn't being considered seriously.

Brother Ray recently asked Jeff Jarrett if he could turn heel, but that idea was turned down.

Vince Russo is said to be very frustrated with TNA tv right now. He recently said in front of TNA management Jeff Jarret, Dixie Carter and some Spike TV rep's after watching an episode of Impact, that he couldn't tell you one thing he just saw. He's frustrated with how managment expects him to fit so many different things into each episode, as alot of the wrestlers are paid on a per-tv appearance basis.
