LAX resigns with TNA, Kaz reinjured, Midway troubles, WWE hires Robert Zimmerman

xbox.jpegTNA decided to pass along by mobile text that Homicide and Hernandez, LAZ, have signed a new three year deal with TNA Wrestling. Hernandez’s deal with TNA was set to expire next month and now LAX is signed with TNA through 2011.

Kaz has apparently reinjured himself according to Jason Powell. Kaz apparently suffered a biceps injury and is expected to miss some ring time. Kaz has been wrestling as Suicide and apparently there is talk of putting someone else in the Suicide costume until he can return.

If TNA wants another iMPACT! video game, they’re going to need to push Suicide. In the latest of bad news for Midway, today the company laid off 25 percent of its staff and ‘suspended’ all of its 2010/2011 projects. Midway is still committed to a sequel for the TNA video game, but the value of its assets to debts pending is so bad that the company is being threatened with NYSE delisting.

WWE has named Robert Zimmerman as Vice President, Public Relations and Corporate Communications. Zimmerman will be a strategic member of WWE’s management team, and overseas business, consumer, financial and trade press relations and strategy.
Zimmerman brings 17 years of experience having worked for Dan Klores Communications and Edelman Public Relations Worldwide, among others. Zimmerman has headed corporate activities, media affairs and crisis management for such well-known brands and personalities as Michael Eisner and his new media studio, Vuguru; Howard Stern; Sean “Diddy” Combs’ The Wall Street Journal Weekend Edition; Ziff Davis Media; Donatella and Allegra Versace; Bill Hemmer; and Bill O’Reilly. From 1998 to 2004, Zimmerman served as spokesperson for FOX News as Vice President of Media Relations, where he developed and oversaw press strategies that supported corporate initiatives for the company’s cable news channel.

Congratulations, Zimmerman!
