TNA cancels two Impact tapings due to Hurricane Matthew

Impact Wrestling

TNA canceled today’s and tomorrow’s Impact tapings in Orlando, Florida due to Hurricane Matthew. The Category 4 hurricane is expected to reach Florida late tonight or early tomorrow and the state is bracing for a direct hit, with the Governor warning residents to evacuate.

Tapings were scheduled to go on till Saturday but due to the cancelation, TNA added another day of tapings on Sunday to make up for the lost days. On Saturday, TNA will tape starting at 6PM EST while on Sunday, there will be two shows, one starting at 1PM EST and one starting at 6PM EST.

TNA really had no say in the cancelation of tapings as Universal Studios Orlando will be closing the theme parks and CityWalk at 5PM today and everything will be closed tomorrow. Since the studio lot where TNA tapes is part of Universal, if the park is closed there is no way to hold shows.
