ORIGINAL: As previously reported, Dixie Carter posted to Twitter promising a “major announcement” on Thursday’s episode of iMPACT!. The announcement will reportedly be TNA taking iMPACT! on the road this year.
Whether the promotion will still occasionally return to the Impact Zone is unknown as of this writing. The plan is for the company to hold a live episode of iMPACT! and tape the following week’s show right afterward, similar to how WWE did things in the early days of RAW.
The announcement will be a pre-taped video segment from Dixie as nothing aired overseas when iMPACT! was taped last week.
UPDATE: The announcement from TNA President Dixie Carter will be that iMPACT! Wrestling episode tapings will be on the road gong forward. The plan is to broadcast one live episode and tape another episode the same night. iMPACT! will still be taped in Orlando as well.
The first taping will be on Thursday 3/14 in Hoffman Estates, IL at the Sears Centre Arena where TNA has run before. There is also talk of running a pay-per-view there as well.
