After that, TNA will tape a series of television on their 2014 European Tour. The January 30th episode of Impact Wrestling will broadcast live from the Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. Per TNA’s new TV contract with Challenge, the January 30th episode will air on UK television before it airs in the United States – the first time this has happened in TNA history.
Additional television tapings will be held on Friday, January 31st in Manchester, England and on Saturday, February 1st in London, England.
Once TNA returns to the United States, there are no TV tapings on the schedule as of this writing. However, that will obviously change as the company is exploring their options including continued negotiations with Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
