RUMOR: TNA and Extreme Tiger Agree to Terms on a Deal?

According to a few reliable sources, TNA and Extreme Tiger, formerly of AAA, are rumored to have reached a deal that will bring the luchador's talents to Impact Wrestling.  We can not, however, confirm this nor has there been any official announcement by either party so it is still a rumor.  What we do know is Extreme Tiger appeared at last night's tapings in a match against Zema Ion that was reportedly filmed for Xplosion.  Although we do not typically post spoilers, we're comfortable making an exception in this case.

In an article I wrote last week, I pointed out how important it is that TNA look into recruiting and signing international talents so I'm happy to see the company go this route.  I'm not very familiar with Extreme Tiger's career but I have watched a couple of his matches and he'd be a nice fit for the X Division.  But this sort of signing also presents some challenges simply because international wrestlers often do not connect with US crowds, particularly those who speak little or no English.  It'll be interesting to see how TNA goes about introducing him to the Impact audience but again, I'm glad to see that TNA are making efforts to bring in new talents.  More to come...
