I found this list at Lordsofpain.net and thought it'd be fun to share. Some of the names and ages kinda surprized me. I thought Shane Sewell and BG James were older and Abyss was younger. And Ayako Hamada's name? Wow...he's awesome, but what a name. It's like Lucha meets Pancrase.
The sources of the list aren't listed, and I'm sure its' not complete, but it's still cool to check out.
Anyhow, for the benefit and interest of those who want to know:

I can't believe how much ass Finley still kicks at 51. On the other hand, I can't believe how young Jim Cornette still is, for as long as he's been in the business. He was just a kid during his NWA days. And seeing how young Cena and Orton still are kind of makes you wonder just how long we'll have them at the top of the card. Because they're nowhere -near- done.

Then again I think we all knew who was playing him.
It also lists someone who hasn't appeared on air yet.
I don't know how well a secret it is of whom you're referring to is debuting with TNA (has he even stated anything on his Facebook? I dunno) but I just copied and pasted the article. I don't follow TNA enough to know who's coming, who's going, etc.
Wikipedia's date for Angle seems right. He won his second National championship in '92 and was either a junior or senior. That would make him 21 to 23-ish. 17 years later makes him about 40. If the date is wrong it's only by a little bit and he's still pretty close to Foley in age.
The un-aired TNA wrestler has been mentioned a few times in the TNA threads so it shouldn't be a big surprise for the people that read them. The only surprise would be their new TNA ring name which I don't really like, but I don't think I've liked any of TNA's name choices.

There are several un-aired people here, at least as of now, before tonight's show (to which I have not read the spoilers).
Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Taz. Not confirmed, as far as I know, on his Facebook or anywhere. Heavily rumored, though. Anyone heard anything concrete? This is who I assume Oliver is referring to.
Sarah Stock, now named "Sarita." I assume this is who Quezzy is referring to, in which case I agree with him about the name. She's turned up on the Spanish-language version of "TNA Today." Click Here (youtube.com)
Ayako Hamada is the daughter of Gran Hamada (with whom Oliver might be confusing her, since he called her a "he"?) She's half Japanese, half Mexican, thus the "Lucha meets Pancrase" name.Click Here (en.wikipedia.org)
Andromeda, a transvestite luchador. Click Here (thesun.co.uk)
The Suicide spoiler doesn't necessarily reveal who's playing him now or who will ultimately be "revealed" as Suicide, of course. (Although it's a pretty safe bet, I think.)

You're right about the one I was referring to. I didn't think I knew some of those other names too but I also didn't recognize Jesse Neal even though he's apparently made his debut so I thought I might have just missed the others too.

FWIW, that person is telling people they picked out their new name themselves. I'm sure TNA approved it, but it's not one they're responsible for.
In his column today, Grantland's The Masked Man mentioned an "Orton rule" which snuck into the WP back in July(?) - this was reported back in November by PWInsider (and perhaps nobody else?) but I was totally unaware about it until just now.
