After tonight's episode of Impact, TNA announced three more names for the Hardcore Justice PPV on August 8. Added to the line-up are Axl Rotten, Balls Mahoney, and Johnny Swinger.

Former TNA & ECW wrestler Shane Douglas reportedly turned down an invitation for the PPV. Douglas will be off the PPV line-up "unless something drastic happens over the next week," reports Brian Fritz of Fanhouse.com.

TNA has not officially announced matches for the PPV. On tonight's Impact, TNA set up Tommy Dreamer vs. Raven as one of the featured matches.

The current talent line-up includes: TNA World Hvt. champion Rob Van Dam, Mick Foley, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, Rhino, Stevie Richards, Team 3D, Al Snow, Simon Diamond, Axl Rotten, Balls Mahoney, and Johnny Swinger.
