– TNA Wrestling has converted the Impact taping scheduled for December 27, 2013 from the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to a live event. Tickets for the show can still be purchased at this link.
– There was a meeting backstage on Thursday at the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City, Utah to address the upcoming changes and return to Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. While there is no way this move wasn’t met with some disappointment, I also don’t think anyone thought it was the wrong thing to do either. Everyone knows how expensive it was for the company to tape television on the road and the fact of the matter is revenues did not grow at the rate that allowed them to continue.
– With that being said, TNA is expected to hold occasional Impact tapings on the road but are completely backing away from Dixie Carter’s claim 9 months ago that there move to the road was permanent.
– In some good news for TNA, the company announced a new multi-year television contract with French TV channel Ma Chaine Sport (MCS). Click here for more information.
