2007 - TNA ran Birmingham, Alabama.  Charles Dudley filed the following live report:

My friend and I had VIP seats which were the front row which entitled you to a meet and greet. I had brought things to get signed but you could buy them as well.
Meet & Greet:
All were available for pics and were willing to sign just about anything. My buddy and I were 2 of the first one's in so I don't know if it changed once time became an issue.
LAX- They were both really cool, Hernandez was hilarious
"Black Machismo" Jay Lethal- Also cool, stays in gimmick the whole time
Eric Young- Hilarious, commented on how he probably got his ass kicked in a DVD that I brought the cover to get signed. Made a comment to kid about Pacman not being there in a sarcastic tone.
Gail Kim- Super Hot and really cool
Wildcat Chris Harris- Cool guy, seemed really down to earth  
Eric Young vs. Jimmy Rave
    - Rave looks really small and has no definition to his body at all. Decent match Eric Young wins. Young was way over with the crowd, doing funny stuff and carrying on, really cool guy.
"Wildcat" Chris Harris vs. Robert Roode
    - Before the match Robert Roode got mad at Ms. Brooks because she wouldn't hold the ropes for him and sent her to the back, which got a lot of boos because she is really hot and she has been doing promotional stuff in the area for the show. Chris Harris won with a roll-up, in what was a pretty decent match.
Gail Kim vs. Jackie Moore vs. Ms. Brooks
    - Gail Kim was the most over here and Ms. Brooks was over too. Jackie had some fans, but man is she looking worse for wear and she is tiny but has huge breasts, they just look freakish. Good women's match, Gail Kim gets the win after some high spots and said that's what its gonna be like at the PPV.
Abyss vs. A.J. Styles
    - AJ was really over because he does WrestleBirmingham appearances a lot. Abyss won with a cool looking Black Hole Slam after some good offense by AJ working on the knee of Abyss. Abyss had a lot of fans and these guys next to us on the front row were heckling him, calling him the gimp from Pulp Fiction all during the match. After the match he was standing right in front of us and told them "F*** your mother, suck my d**k." Pretty hilarious because you wouldn't expect that from Abyss, since he just started talking not to long ago.
During the break Abyss was signing autographs by the merchandise.
"Cowboy" James Storm vs. Rhino
    - Rhino was a "no-show." They did this same thing the last time they were here with Storm getting a win over Chris Harris by forfeit then running down the fans and Chris Harris ran out and they brawled. This time, however, Storm ran down the fans on the mic and Chris Harris came out and they fought for a little bit and then Robert Roode came out and they double teamed Harris. There was a "We Want Showtime" chant here and Storm said "Well I want a million dollars." Harris ended up winning because Storm superkicked Roode and Harris pinned him. Fuzzy booking with blatant interference, but it is TNA.
LAX & Black Machismo vs. Triple X
    - The music messed up here so both came out to just crowd noise. Triple X got some chants and LAX and Lethal were way over. Toward the beginning of the match, the hecklers next to us were getting at Homicide calling him Chavo and making grass cutting jokes and he turned around and told them to suck his d**k, pretty loud and weird because there were kids there and they are supposed to be faces. Funny moment after that though, Hernandez looked at him and was like, "You kind of look like Chavo." Good match typical spots, Homicide hurt his eye and had to flush it out and seemed to be pretty pissed off about it. Hernandez is awesome, funny guy and looked like he was having a ball and Lethal cracks me up with the Savage stuff. LAX and Lethal get the win.
Main Event
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe
    - This match was just OK. I expected it to be way better than it was but it was still really good. No Final Resolution or Genesis match here but still quality stuff. Angle got the win after using the belt and low-blowing Joe. Both guys were over, but Angle over more than Joe.  After the match Joe was helped to the back selling the belt shot.
Then Jeremy Borash announced that you could get into the ring with Kurt Angle and meet him and get an autograph and a 1984 Polaroid pic with the champ for $20. We passed and left.
The crowd was small only being like 30% full maybe. Last time they sold it out but it was also on a Saturday night. I'd be shocked if they came back with such crappy attendance. The hecklers were a plenty and not without incident but a good show. Last time they came it was much better, it seemed very low rent this time, like they didn't know about the show and just threw it together.

2008 - Dos Caras Jr. told the Mexican media that that he definitely planned on staying in EMLL for the rest of the year after meeting with EMLL personnel. Dos said that he isn’t being offered enough money by the WWE to make him jump on a whim so he said that he would wait them out and would continue to work for EMLL for at least the next 3 months. Dos said that after speaking to Paco Alonso directly, his problems with the promotion have subsided and both sides are happy with their current situation but he said that he would still take offers although he is sticking around with EMLL. Dos then denied that he would be appearing on WWE shows next week when they tour Mexico because there is no contract and won’t be until they meet his demands.   He would eventually sign a WWE deal and debut as Alberto Del Rio.

2008 - TNA held a Fan Interaction event as part of Bound for Glory weekend in Chicago.  Gregory Davis filed the following live report:

Here's my report of the 2008 TNA Bound for Glory Fan Interaction event from the O'Hare Hyatt in Rosemont.
The event took place in a room in the bottom floor. The doors opened right around 10:00, with the first session beginning at about 11:05.
Ten tables were set up. Four of them (1, 2, 5, & 10) had ropes set up so the long lines wouldn't get out of hand (although it did anyway for Sting).
Three ninety-minute sessions were scheduled. To accommodate as many people as possible, Sting was scheduled for the first session, plus half of the second. After that, Mick Foley came out for the second half of that session, and the third. The Beautiful People also ended up coming out for two full sessions.
Here was the breakdown of sessions.
Session one: Sting, Kurt Angle, Taylor Wilde, Sonjay Dutt & So Cal Val, LAX, the Rock n' Rave Infection and Christy Hemme, Mike Tenay and Don West, Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed, Jay Lethal, and Rhino.
Session two: Sting/Mick Foley, AJ Styles, Beer Money & Jacqueline, Jim Cornette & Traci Brooks, Team 3D & Johnny Devine, Consequences Creed, the Motor City Machine Guns, Roxxi, the Beautiful People, and Christian Cage.
Session three: Mick Foley, Booker T & Sharmell, the Prince Justice Brotherhood, Matt Morgan & Abyss, Samoa Joe, Rhaka Kahn & ODB, Sheik Abdul Bashir, Petey Williams & Earl Hebner, the Beautiful People, and Jeff Jarrett.
There was a merchandise section where fans could buy T-shirts (including several new ones), DVDs,  BFG posters (one of them still had Gail Kim on it), as well as the tickets required to get an 8x10 or Polaroid photo. Tri-Star had a table, giving out free decks of TNA trading cards. Midway Games, the sponsor of this event, setup several TVs, where we could play the TNA Impact video game. During the third session, Consequences Creed played against some fans.
A small stage was set up in the middle, where Jeremy Borash would host the event. Him and Lauren went around interviewing the various stars. Mick Foley also had a brief interview up there.
The basic rule was that you were allowed "three things" per star, which basically meant three autographs, or two autographs and a Polaroid.
The tables were being run by members of TNA.
During the third session, JB and Don West revealed that in honor of Jarrett's return to the ring, many of the TNA employees bought him a high quality guitar with his image laser engraved on it. About 20 guitars were purchased, with a few given to employees, six being sold at the Fanfest, and the rest to be sold online later.
As usual, Dixie Carter was walking about, greeting the fans and whatnot. There was also some local media going around. I saw a film crew for CN100, and a couple guys from ESPN 1000 radio.
Overall, I had a great time, getting about 30 autographs. Obviously I couldn't get everyone, but I was thrilled with what I got, especially Jeff Jarrett.

2009 - TNA ran Mantako, Minnesota.  Buddy Winston filed the following report:

Opening match saw Hernandez over Eric Young. Alright match. EY is getting a bit better with the mic.

Next up, Minnesota native ODB over Madison Rayne. Usual funny stuff, with ODB getting a nice little red mark after a ref spanking.

An X-Division match was next with Daniels, Homicide, and the MotorCity Machine Guns. The later victorious. Very good match with a lot of near falls and so on.

Beer Money Inc. over the British Invasion. Ok...but that's about it.

In the mismatch of the night, Matt Morgan pins Sheik Abdul Bashir. Kind of fun.

In the main event, A.J. Styles pins Samoa Joe. Not what you'd expect from these two. Kind of thinking that they just wanted out of Minnesota.

As for the crowd, very disappointed in the numbers. I thought that Minnesota was a professional wrestling hot bed for fans. Guess I was wrong.  All in all a fairly decent show and all in around 2 hours.  Special kudos for Hernandaz, ODB, Daniels, and Matt Morgan who stuck around to sign more than 3 or 4 autographs after the matches. Class acts those 4, and lets not forget J.B. with the obligitory, "maybe the next time we are in MInnesota, it should be for a PPV". Really J.B.? Mankato? St. Cloud? Rochester? Hey, you ever hear a a couple little towns by the name of Minneapolis and St. Paul ?

2010 - It was publicly revealed that Jersey Shore cast member J-Woww was coming into TNA for an angle with The Shore, Cookie and Robbie E.

2010 - WWE broadcast Raw.  Richard Trionfo filed the following TV report:

We are live from Seattle, Washington and your announcers are Michael ‘Happy Columbus Day’ Cole and Jerry ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ Lawler.

John Cena comes to the ring and the fans don’t care that he is with Nexus, but he is alone right now. John says that the fans have no idea how much he needs this right now. He says that he wants to make sure that they haven’t lost faith and they still believe. John says that last week, he heard the WWE Universe chant something that he never heard before. He heard them chant “Never Give Up”. Cena says that he has never given up and he will never give up. Cena wants to set the record straight. He made a risk at Hell in a Cell. He had a chance to eliminate Nexus, but he lost the match. Cena says that he made a deal and if he lost, he would become part of Nexus. We see the arm band. Cena says that means he has to take orders from Wade Barrett and if he doesn’t he will be fired. Cena says that he wouldn’t have the opportunity to go to Smackdown, he would be fired from the WWE. Cena says that he has been here a long time and he has heard the people cheer and boo. He loves coming out because the fans are so excited about what they see. Cena says that this isn’t about money or championships because he loves this. Cena says that he doesn’t know what he would do if he wasn’t in WWE. Cena says that he is between a rock and a hard place. As a result, he might do something that people might not want to see him do.

Miz interrupts and he comes to the ring with his lackey Alex Riley and Michael Cole perks up.

Miz mocks Cena for not wanting to lose the support of the WWE Universe. Miz says that he is going to captain Team Raw against Big Show and Team Smackdown at Bragging Rights. Miz says that he won’t assemble his team by judging them personally. Miz offers Cena a spot on his team. Miz says that he knows that Cena supports Raw and he knows that Cena did not like Big Show turning his back on Raw. He wants Cena to join his team.

Cena says that this is a good idea, but he doesn’t like Miz as captain and he says that it is as good as having Betty White doing a spread in Playboy. Cena suggests that he captain Team Raw.

Tomko was in the restroom upwards of 30 minutes, which caused the police to be called. When they found him in the restroom, he was observed to have had needle marks and fresh blood on his arms, so the belief was that he had been using the painkillers. Tomko was alleged to have flushed whatever he used before police arrived.

Tomko was said to have made off with over 200 pills and of that stash, 178 pills were melted and injected by Tomko, according to the media reports.

According to the police report, Tomko admitted to police that he had a drug problem but denied ever threatening anyone. He admitted to taking the Oxycodone and using it.

Hogan and Sting make their way out to the ring, and Hogan says he's not a good card player, but Aces & Eights backed him into a corner and now Sting is going to get in the ring while Hogan is forced to stand on the side and watch. Sting says he's also pissed off that Hogan can't get in the ring for this, but Bully Ray stepped up to the plate and now they have to run with it. They go back and forth repeating the same thing over and over until Daniels & Kazarian's music hits, and they come out to have a word with Hogan and Sting. Daniels says they're only days away from Bound For Glory, and he wants to know why Hogan picked the most untrustworthy guy in the locker room. They want to know why Hogan didn't pick his favorite tag team, the Tag Team Champions Of The World, and Kazarian tells Thunderlips that they came up with a solution: cancel the tag title match, tell Bully Ray thanks but no thanks, and call on the one man he knows can put an end to the Aces & Eights threat once and for all: Kurt Angle. Bully Ray's music hits, and the man himself comes powerwalking out to the ring to tell Daniels not to ever talk about his brother again. He says Angle would have been a great choice, but this isn't going to be a wrestling match, it's going to be a fight, and if you're getting in a wrestling match, you want the greatest wrestler alive, and that's Kurt Angle, but in a fight, they need the baddest mother trucker around. Bubba says he doesn't need to be Hogan or Sting's friend, he needs to have his back because the common business they have is getting rid of Aces & Eights.

We go to the Aces & Eights clubhouse where the Vice President (who really should be preparing for his debate instead of screwing around at TNA) says that Joseph Park is doing fine (as we see by him greedily wolfing down a tray of Chinese food one of the goons hands him), and that Bully Ray joining up with Sting certainly came as a surprise, but not a surprise they can't overcome.

Zema Ion comes out to the ring and says that being humble got him nowhere, and he became the X Division Champion by breaking necks, and now he doesn't have an opponent for Bound For Glory because he's taken out the entire X Division. Rob Van Dam comes out to the ring and says that the most dangerous thing Ion has ever done is run his mouth within earshot of RVD. RVD doesn't have a match either, and Hulk Hogan said he can wrestle anyone he wants, so it'll be RVD vs Zema Ion at Bound For Glory. Ion shoves RVD, and RVD spinkicks the X Division Title into Ion's face.

Hardy's music hits, but Aries comes out to say that tonight's show isn't going to end with Hardy sitting in the middle of his ring because he has some things to say. He throws away the lines somebody backstage wrote for him, and says he's sick of TNA telling Aries how to think and who he needs to be as the World Champion, and that crap ends right now. Aries has been painted out as being jealous of Hardy, but that's not true: he's not jealous of Hardy's rap sheet, he's not jealous that he's too crippled to play with his little girl, and the only thing he's jealous of is the way the fans go nuts for him. He's been asking for new music and a new entrance for months, but they're too busy making Jeff Hardy videos and he's sick of the way everyone caters to Hardy. He's not a failure, but Hardy is going to see a failure when he looks in the mirror and paints his face.
