After eight years, TNA is finally taking their flagship show – IMPACT – on the road. The show has always been taped at the IMPACT Zone in Universal Studios in Orlando with the except of a couple of occasions.
The announcement was made yesterday by TNA President Dixie Carter who also said that the last two shows to be filmed at Universal will be on February 28 and March 7.
“This is a tremendous step forward for TNA. 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,” said Carter. “It’s now time for us to take the IMPACT WRESTLING television cameras to them.”
Taking the show on the road also means that TNA will finally be able to get gate money for their shows, something that they didn’t get whenever the shows taped at Universal, including pay-per-views.
“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.
The first show on the road will be on March 14 in Chicago at the Sears Centre Arena, with tickets on sale on February 8 at SearsCentre.com.
