    TNA TAKES THURSDAY NIGHT “IMPACT WRESTLING” ON THE ROAD
    Chicago tapped for televised live show to air on Spike TV

    Nashville, Tenn. (Jan. 31, 2012) – TNA’s Impact Wrestling today announced that it will begin filming all Impact Wrestling programming on the road as part of their 2013 television programming strategy. Impact Wrestling airs every Thursday on Spike TV (8/7 CT), and is regularly one of the network’s top-rated shows. The first live televised show will be March 14 from the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago.

    For the past 8 years, Impact Wrestling has been filmed on the largest soundstage at Universal Studios Orlando. The final two shows to be filmed from the "Impact Zone" at Universal will be February 28 and March 7.

    “This is a tremendous step forward for TNA,” stated TNA President Dixie Carter. “Fans from around the world have been coming to us at Universal for more than 8 years to be a part of the Impact Wrestling audience. It's now time for us to take the Impact Wrestling television cameras to them. This is a very important next evolution for the company, and I'm excited that the backdrop to the show will feature our great fans in larger arenas around the country and world.

    “We are so grateful to Universal for being such fantastic partners and look forward to finding other ways to work together in the future," Carter added.

    “Taking Impact Wrestling on the road to the fans is yet another example of Dixie and her incredible team expanding their horizons to deliver the most exciting and action-packed wrestling product on the market,” said Spike TV President Kevin Kay.

    Kicking off the start to Impact Wrestling on the road will be the triumphant return to Chicago and the Sears Centre Arena on March 14. Chicago’s Sears Centre Arena was home to “Bound For Glory 2008” setting, at the time, the highest TNA attendance record.

    Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 8 at the Sears Centre Arena box office and at www.SearsCentre.com. (Doors will open on Thursday, March 14 at 6 p.m. and bell time at 7 p.m.)

    TNA’s will announce additional Thursday night Impact Wrestling television tour dates in the coming weeks.
    Can't wait.

    Cool. When Dixie said "television tapings", i assumed it was going to be how theyve done Impacts on the road in the past....taping two episodes in the same arena on a Monday or Tuesday. But since the 14th is a Thursday, these are going to be live?! Or might they still tape shows on the road too? Im just confused since she used the word "taping"

    So after doing a little searching it sounds like they are going to tape the following weeks episode immediately after the live show? Better than nothing, and absolutely better than both being taped!...although i do always worry about the quality/energy of the second show when they do that.

    Good thing to get out of the Impact zone, its the only way they can truly grow since they'll hit new markets with their show. Hopefully they can end this Aces and Eight crap though. Its really becoming NWO 2.0 and a 1000% worse.

    Im assuming they'll hit markets like NYC, Toronto, and Philly.

    I know what you mean, but if its just every other episode taped i can deal with that. This would be the logical next step because they cant really justify going live on the road every week, since theres basically no difference for them in ratings live vs taped. If this works out, then maybe they can do it every week

    I agree with this. The impact zone is great and all but it was really starting to hamper the tna product

    Im very happy for them. They just need to fix a few wrestlers entrances and blast the damn entrance music so you know whos comin out

    Tna is on there way. I hope being on the road brings tna more success so it can compete with the wwe. That way it would force the wwe to really put there thinking cap on


    First Sim League Title!

    I love that TNA is going on the road full-time now. This is the next step you realize yes orlando is free taping but the people who are there either have to pay for plane tickets or are just tourist... Now the REAL FANS can go see the shows for just the price of a ticket and gas. Love it and can't wait for it to be in the tri-state are. Even though I bet my left nut it will prob never be in MSG since they ahve an awesome relantionship with WWE/F. WCW was never even in MSG right

    I can't stop laughing at the thought of you making up your mind and deciding that Mbellz being your choice.

    This is going to be a piece of cake.

    I believe you are correct with WCW never went to MSG, I know for them the Georgia Dome in Atlanta was their version of it and as for TNA this is good and I do hope they hit up in or around here because I'd consider giving them a visit though they never would hit up Toyota Center like WWE would it probably would be a smaller venue and the same would be true likely for the other big cities they can get in to


    Chris Bosh signing for the max will do this to Rockets fans
