Re: A new "Impact Zone"
I've said this before and I'll say it again. WCW Saturday night ran before WCW started doing Nitro, and WCW Saturday Night was in its own arena, much like the iMPACT Zone. I'd love for TNA to have a second show that is on the road and to still do weekly shows in the iMPACT Zone. TNA could have the weekly show in the iMPACT Zone on Saturday nights, even, and have their weekly road show on live, on Thursday nights.
Sure, feature talent in main storylines wouldn't be regulars on the Saturday night show due to the inability to physically be in two places at the same time. However, this would be an opportunity for TNA to feature its main talent and main storylines at house shows while doing live tapings on the road with the same talent on Thursday nights.
For example, the main show would tape in major cities and the talent featured on the main show would do house shows in smaller venues between major cities.
I'd love to see this. The way I see it, if TNA can land a Sunday night timeslot on Spike for the Countdown to Bound for Glory, then I see no reason why TNA couldn't land a regular additional hour-long timeslot on Saturday or Sunday nights for shows taped in the iMPACT Zone. I'd watch both.
