I assume they will be using what they used for Bound For Glory last year. They always use the same entrance stage for their on-the-road shows, be it Bound For Glory or an Impact on-the-road taping (though Lockdown 2012 was an exception). TNA have been using the same entrance stage since Bound For Glory 2010, except with slight modifications or upgrades. In BFG 2010, they had 3 rising screens showing 3 different videos with a row of bright white lights behind them. That was the first time a TNA entrance stage had any kind of theme to it (because if you remember the intro for iMPACT then had TNA wrestlers in front of a bunch of white lights). When they had the on-the-road Impact tapings in 2011, and they used the same set-up, except instead of bright white lights, they were LED lights that could change color, and it also had some trussing around it to carry the lights. They then changed it a bit for Slammiversary 2012, when the 3 screens were joined together to make one big tron and didn't slide up or down and the row of lights in the middle were pushed back so that the wrestlers could come out through it, and I thought that was a pretty good change-up. Then the biggest upgrade came at Bound For Glory, where they had two big screens instead of just one (I think the second one at the bottom was nothing more than the tron they use in the Impact Zone), but the second one was pretty much a waste because all it did was show a graphic of the deserts of Arizona. If they use the second tron going forward, I believe they will produce a second set of entrance videos for the wrestlers, much like WWE. They also used a new ramp and ramp lighting at BFG 2012, and it looked so much better than the tacky one they use at the Impact Zone, though one change I would make is use the ColorBars that they so randomly fixed all around the Impact Zone set and use it for the ramp instead of the lights that they did use for the ramp at BFG 2012. Also, use a sloping ramp instead of one which leads straight to the ring.

Only thing im stuck between is. If i like the 3 split screens or just 1 big screen rising like in this photo. Anyways this stage set is perfect and all it needs is the name Impact wrestling above those steel on each side of the screen in the air.



Perfect stage set. Like i said just add The Impact wrestling logo above those steel light rows on that hang on each side of the screen in the air. Be the best stage set in wrestling. Better then the so called big boys.



Here is a video of it.Its just perfect to me .Other then missing Impact Wrestling logo on each side.

Great video. I highly recommend that people watch the video you posted. That is how I view Impact being when they finally hit their stride. That's exactly the type of set they need.

They should get some covers for their guardrails. Looks better. Maybe even have a different color for each PPV.

Yeah i mean they have been updating it ever since it debuted. I believe this is what they will use. I find it to be everything they need to have done by now.Except i think for the weekly show. They should have Impact Wrestling logos above those light steel pipes that hang on each side of the screens. That would look amazing.


Other then that its perfect.Such a cool stage set and i think one massive rising screen is better then 3 at different times.It would complicate things to much i think. Hell even just having it hang is fine.

I like how they gradually add new parts to the Dixie Tron, it looks pretty good now!

I wish TNA got their set made from these guys:

http://www.southwestscenic.com

They could probably design a set that would cost less than all the trons and lighting equipment that constitute their current entrance set and make it look 10 times better. A hard set with a theme would look much better than a bunch of large video screens.

I doubt they'll use the riser stage on the road for Impact. It'll be too expensive to hire and too expensive to move around everywhere.

I think that they will just use the stage with the rising screens at PPV's to make them feel bigger and more special, kinda like WWE does with custom stages for various different PPV's.

Definitely agree, it'd look so much better, but if they do that, they're of course copying WWE #sarcasm

If it ends up being to expensive and they dont use that stage.They should use this etrance stage.Not the crap around it.Just talking the steel lights tunnel part. With the name on it.

That was a cool entrance .

Kinda reminds me of a shitty version of the old nitro stage set ha.




Nitro. Those steel WCW logos were by far the best.

I really think they need to invest here. If they're going on the road, the stage and lighting need to look professional and honestly it needs to look impressive.

Visual impact does have a big influence on casuals. When they flip on TNA, they gotta see the stage and lighting and production and think "wow, this looks as good as WWE."

If it's dark and dim, the stage is puny and stupid looking, it won't have the same effect. I hope they understand this and go for the Dixietron with rising screens or SOMETHING of equivalence. It has to look impressive or it won't be considered "good" by a lot of superficial "fans."
