TNA Newswire November 26

-- TNA announced they have signed a new multi-year TV deal with Nippon TV in Japan, extending their original deal that started in January. G+ will continue airing Impact on Saturday nights, plus TNA PPVs and "One Night Only" events. [ LINK: Announcement HERE ]

-- TNA announced its first house show tour of 2014. Dates include January 3 in Batesville, Arkansas, Jan. 4 in Jonesboro, Ark., and Jan. 5 in Tackson, Tennessee. Top stars advertised are Kurt Angle, Bully Ray, Mr. Anderson, Bobby Roode, James Storm, and Magnus. [ LINK: Details HERE ]

-- The Daily Mail in the U.K. picked up the story of One Direction band member Liam Payne "living out a life-long dream" wrestling Kurt Angle at the "1D Day" event in Los Angeles last weekend. Angle noted that 20-year-old Payne was "more skilled than he had anticipated" in their mock wrestling match. [ LINK: Coverage HERE ]

-- TNA Knockout Brooke Tessmacher said it's "more rewarding" to play a heel on TV and she finally felt validated as a women's wrestler when TNA booked her to win the Knockouts Title last year.

"I think it's just more rewarding to get out there and feel the hate from the crowd that means you're doing your job," Brooke told v2 Wrestling in the U.K. about playing heel. "It's so much more fun to be over the top and annoying and mean, and to play dirty."

As for her KO Title victory, Brooke said, "It was something I never saw coming. I never thought I'd be good enough to hold the title and be looked at as the champion of this company... I'll always remember that, and I remember that feeling of, 'Now I'm finally somebody, now I've made a point that I'm not just some dancing chick.'" [ LINK: Full Interview HERE ]
