- Last night's Impact taping was apparently a disaster live in that hundreds and hundreds of people were turned away at the door. You'd think that with 80,000 people coming into the city for wrestling someone would have thought, hey, maybe we should move the show to a bigger building. You'd think a lot of things about TNA. Tonight's show, head-to-head with ROH, features Sting vs. James Storm in the main event.

- Yes, that was Highlander Robbie at Impact last night. No, WWE was not happy. All of the talent has been told they are NOT to gallivant with any TNA performers over the weekend.

- Big MMA stories of the day include the announcement that Fedor Emelianenko is now once again a free agent, having severed ties with the M-1 promotion, and that Tim Sylvia should announce either today or tomorrow that he will no longer be fighting for UFC.

- Nick Diaz is also off Saturday's EliteXC show. His list of medications submitted to the CSAC included marijuana, and in order for the commission to OK that they have to have a consultation with his doctor, and there wasn't enough time to schedule such a thing. Diaz is threatening legal action, saying even if they'd tested him for the fight he'd have been clean. Jae Suk Lim, who was supposed to face Diaz, will now be facing Drew Fickett, who was supposed to be facing Jake Shields. We'll run down the entire card tomorrow.

- If you didn't see it, the Lance Storm Figure Four Daily is up right now for members. It's a 45-minute show FANTASY BOOKING WRESTLEMANIA~! and discussing Lance's memories of Ric Flair. Fun show. It's the third of four straight Figure Four Dailies, as Wednesday we were joined by Larry Barnes and Larry Sweeney and Thursday by Buddy Wayne. We should have a few audios from Orlando up in the next few days as well. It's WrestleMania weekend and TONS of stuff is happening, so there's never been a better time to sign up!

- Leonard Garcia of WEC was also arrested this week due to allegedly participating in a major Texas cocaine ring. Whoops. Well, he was a flyweight.

- Frank Shamrock will be on Jimmy Kimmell tonight hyping up his EliteXC fight with Cung Le tomorrow.

- Sid Vicious (yes) returns to wrestling for the NWA on April 18th in Rhode Island. He says this is the start of his big comeback. I believe he's 48.

- Mayweather on ESPN radio said he'd be wearing boxing gloves in his match with Big Show, and that tons of dudes would be around ringside.

- Smackdown tonight has MVP vs. Chris Jericho in a US Champion vs. IC Champion match.

- Irv Muchnick with the latest on Benoit

- Hogan wackiness

- National story on Ultimate Fighting expanding to include KIDS

- Fascinating interview with Shawn
