From 411wrestling.com,

The following notes are from Bob Ryder's Notes from Backstage column on NWATNA.com.

-NWA: TNA will be filming additional footage tonight that will air on the next two TNA PPVs. Next week, the TNA show will be an "Special X" that will feature only X Division matches. Then, on Sept. 18th (TNA will not air on Sept. 11th), the show will feature a "TNA Termination" match to determine the tag team champions.

-TNA will air on Viewers Choice Canada tonight, next week, Sept. 18th, and 25th.

-The card for tonight:
*The Truth vs. Monty Brown for the NWA World Title
*AJ Styles vs. Jerry Lynn 2 out of 3 Falls Match (Falls will be Fall Count Anywhere, No DQ, Iron Man)
*Low Ki vs. SAT for the X Title
*Chris Harris & James Storm vs. Brian Lee & Ron Harris
*Jimmy Yang vs. Sonny Siaki
*Jeff Jarrett meets Bob Armstrong's "Surprise"

-April Hunter, Slyk Wagner, and the Backseat Boys will all be involved tonight.

-TNA has starting a "fan of the week" promotion where the fan with the most enthusiasm at the live show gets to go backstage, meet the talent, and gets free ringside seats to the next TNA show.

-TNA has signed a deal with marketing firm Stanley Shenker & Associates.

-TNA has also signed a deal with Matthew Ody who will handle international distribution for TNA. Ody has worked with NBC in the past.

-National Sports Satelite will start to send TNA shows to bars and restaurants soon.

-Ed Ferrara quit TNA so he can pursue stuff in the video editing industry, not because of conflicts with Vince Russo.

All good news from 1bob

I''m a litte surprised at Wagner and Hunter getting shots on TNA, as I though that they were "not ready for prime time." Slyk is nothing special, but I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing April at an indy show last year, and she's learned a LOT about the business since her short WCW stint. She's actually a pretty decent women's wrestler now, on par with Ivory or Victoria, I'd say.

An entire X-Division show?

As long as Russo takes the week off for that one, that week looks like a must buy.

I think the X division show is just going to be a show that shows all the past x division matches. I don't think they are showing new matches.

Either Way's fine with me, tonight's the first show I'm ordering, it's ALL new to me, except the Low-Ki, Lynn, Styles, Psicosis match, I DL'ed that off Hotline

But it said they're filming aditional footage for the next 2 shows. So it probably won't ALL be old

The X-Division only show will feature 'a mixture of never before seen behind the scenes interviews and highlights of some of the great "X" matches we've seen in recent weeks' according to Bob Ryder.

So basically we'll have NWATNA going 'dark' for two weeks in early September with no original programming being offered (outside of some interviews on the X show).
