The Wrestleline Report-Tuesday

Christian Cage's TNA contract is a two year deal

The Slammiversary ppv will be the first time a ppv has been back at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium since WCW's Superbrawl Revenge 2001 ppv.

Bill Banks confirmed in his online column that TNA replica belts will be available later in the year.

The new TNA belts were designed by David Millican and Rico Mann.

TNA Impact last week averaged a 1.01 rating.

Jay Hassman, who used to work with TNA, has been charged with grand larceny and falsification of business records. He claimed that the first weekly TNA ppv did 80,000 buys, but in all actuallity, it did about 25,000 buys, the second doing 15,000, and the third doing 10,000.

Reasons for some recent WWE releases:

WWE felt Ariel (Shelly Martinez) didn't have the right look

Spirit Squad member Mitch has back problems

Management felt Scotty 2 Hotty's ring work wasn't getting any better, plus he's also injured again and expected to be out most of the summer.

And I thought this was mind blowing-the feeling backstage was that Angel Williams wasn't pretty enough to be a WWE Diva...somebody backstage needs some new glasses.

Updated One Night Stand PPV Card:

1. ECW World Heavyweight Championship - Street Fight Match: Vince McMahon vs. Bobby Lashley
2. WWE Championship - Falls Count Anywhere Match: John Cena vs. The Great Khali
3. World Heavyweight Championship - Steel Cage Match: Edge vs. Batista
4. World Tag Team Title - Ladder Match: Jeff & Matt Hardy vs. The World's Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas & Sheldon Benjiman)
