Moments ago, the unthinkable happened for TNA Knockout Velvet Sky. After helping Robbie E capture a Feast or Fired briefcase, the TNA Superstar repaid Velvet by making her take ownership of the case. Velvet opened the case to learn that she had retrieved the FIRED briefcase. Effective immediately, Velvet Sky has been released from the TNA roster.
IMPACTWrestling.com would like to thank Velvet Sky for everything she has done for us over the years.
ShopTNA has just launched a "Fired Sale," making Velvet Sky's merchandise 50% through Monday!
TNA officials have already taken to Twitter with their thoughts:

Lashley enters the Impact Zone. He demands MVP bring him his title – now! Kenny King answer’s Lashley’s call. He says Lashley couldn’t make it into The BDC because he’s ungrateful. He says The BDC doesn’t need Lashley anymore because – himself, MVP, Low Ki and Samoa Joe are all capable of being World Heavyweight Champion.
Lashley demands his title. Kenny King says to get a referee, that if Lashley wants to fight, he can fight. King asks the rest of The BDC to join him at ringside. MVP (with Lashley’s title), Low Ki and Samoa Joe enter the arena.

Low Ki is brought back into the match. He and Young exchange tags rapidly and begin to isolate Bobby Roode. EY delivers a hard right to Roode’s face, sending Roode to the mat. He slams Roode and taunts the crowd before heading to the top rope.
Roode counters, sending Young crashing down to the mat with superplex! Enough separation is created and Kurt Angle re-enters the match! Angle connects with a few German suplexes to Young and Low Ki. He then drops Low Ki with an Angle Slam! Before he can make the cover, Eric Young makes the save.

Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode make the save and retrieve Lashley’s title as Impact goes off the air.
Tonight, one of the most intimidating matches in TNA history goes down: FEAST or FIRED. 12 Superstars enter this match, 4 leave with briefcases. From those briefcases, 3 Superstars will earn title shots for TNA World Championships and one person will be fired. One person's career in TNA will be finished after tonight - for good.
All week, we've been speaking to the TNA Superstars entering the match and finding out why they would risk it all. One man with retribution on his mind is Gunner. The world watched as Gunner retrieved the World Heavyweight Championship briefcase and then watched as his former friend, James Storm, robbed him of the World Title. We caught up with Gunner this morning to get his final thoughts before tonight's match!
"Feast or Fired... Tonight. 2014 was, perhaps, the biggest year of my career so far. I earned a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship; the biggest prize in this industry. But I was robbed by a jealous cowboy, James Storm. Tonight, I will climb that mountain one more time and that World Title will be mine."
All week long, IMPACTWrestling.com has been reaching out to TNA Superstars to find out why they would risk their careers in this Friday's Feast or Fired Match on IMPACT. When we reached Samuel Shaw for comment, the oft-described Creepy Bastard responded in his own unique way. No words, no quotes, just this. Watch Samuel Shaw compete in Feast or Fired tonight at 9/8c on Destination America - only on Friday Night IMPACT! (Also, judging from this, we'd recommend that Robbie E keeps an eye on Shaw...)
Knockouts Champion Taryn Terrell knows what it takes to compete at the highest level inside the ring. Taryn has now taken her in-ring skills to the big screen and it has become a trending topic this week. Taryn’s cheerleader character gets hit in the face with a basketball by none other than Will Ferrell for a scene in Ferrell’s upcoming “Daddy’s Home” motion picture. Which, according to IMDB, also stars Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini and Hannibal Buress.
The clip in which Ferrell’s character attempts a half-court shot at a New Orleans Pelicans game and instead smashes the ball off of Taryn’s face has been seen everywhere from Vine to Twitter to Instagram to Youtube. Makes one wonder if Taryn will attempt to exact revenge inside an IMPACT Wrestling ring in the near future?
We hope to have more from Taryn later today on IMPACTWrestling.com
This week, IMPACTWrestling.com has been talking to all of your favorite TNA Superstars about this Friday's Feast or Fired Match on Friday Night IMPACT! We caught up with The Wolves, who had the following to say:
This is what the Wolves are all about! It's all or nothing, every time we step foot in the ring. We've fought before and we’ll probably fight again. The Wolves are hungry for competition. But, you see, The Wolves have more to lose then anyone. Wolves move in packs – they rely on each other. Eddie and I are a pack, we hunt as a pack and, if one of us get’s fired, really, it’s like both of us do. Wolves don’t leave the pack.
The Wolves strive to be the best. We want to win every chance we can and, for us, the bigger the risk, the bigger the reward. That’s also the perfect summation of Feast or Fired. I fully support Davey and I know he supports me. Whatever happens, happens. The Wolves will always be united. Whether that’s a TNA World Title shot or someone pulling down the Fired briefcase. Whatever goes down, we will go through it together.
IMPACTWrestling.com caught up with "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived," Austin Aries, this morning to ask a simple question: "why would you risk it all to enter Feast or Fired?" Of course, Austin Aries may be TNA's greatest innovator -- as the creator of Option C -- but, tonight, one TNA Superstar will be FIRED and gone from the company for good. What does Aries think of his chances? Listen below! Then, watch Feast or Fired on this week's edition of Friday Night IMPACT at 9/8c on Destination America!
Sony Six was the most viewed sports television channel in India in 2014, according to the Multi Screen Media-owned broadcaster.
Quoting figures from media research group TAM, Sony Six says that it had an annual viewership of 181.3 million last year, placing it ahead of Star India’s Star Sports 1 on 172.3 million and Star Sports 3 on 169.2 million.
They are followed by the Ten Cricket and Ten Sports channels owned by Zee Entertainment Enterprises, and then Star Sports 2, Star Sports 4 and Doordarshan Sports, the sports channel of the Indian state broadcaster.
Sony Six claims that 40 per cent of its viewership (74.1 million) is aged between 15 and 35 and 45 per cent (82 million) are female, higher than any other Indian sports channel.
Sony Six offered a wide variety of sport last year, including high-profile cricket in the shape of the Indian Premier League, the glamorous Twenty20 competition, and the Indian team’s tour of New Zealand, plus soccer’s Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
Other popular sports included basketball’s NBA, mixed martial arts’ UFC and professional wrestling’s TNA.
Sony Six business head Prasana Krishnan said, "It is a proud moment for us, as 2014 has been a defining year for the channel. We have established ourselves as one of the leading sports broadcasters in the country just within two years of our launch. With an exciting line-up for 2015 we hope to carry forward the momentum and serve a diverse brand of sports programming, which has hitherto not been seen on Indian television."
The channel is kicking off this year with coverage of soccer’s Africa Cup of Nations, tennis’ Australian Open and the debut of Indian wrestler Mahabali Shera in TNA, and will also be showing the Super Bowl live and exclusive in India for the first time, on 1 February.
However, the highlight of its schedules will again be the IPL, the eighth edition of which is set to begin in early April.
