TNA is going on the road starting in March!
I'm sorry, but this really needs its own thread. This news has gotten lost in the announcement thread, too many people replying to the first post.
According to The Wrestling Observer, TNA President Dixie Carter's scheduled announcement will be that TNA will be taking Impact Wrestling on the road in 2013. Not much else is known at this point. Whether TNA will be abandoning the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando Florida or if they will still hold occasional Impact tapings there. When Impact goes on the road, TNA will air a live episode of Impact and then tape the following week's show right afterwards. This is a similar format to the early days of WWE Monday Night RAW.
TNA President Dixie Carter's announcement will be that many of the Impact Wrestling episodes will be on the road going forward. The plan we have heard is to broadcast one live episode and tape another episode the same night.
They will still tape in Impact in Orlando as well.
The first taping will be Thursday 3/14 in Hoffman Estates, IL at the Sears Centre Arena, a venue they have run before. There's been talk of doing a PPV there for some time.
I've waited for this since that dual broadcast of Nitro in 2001.
