Origin of the "What's _____ doing in the Impact Zone?" Meme

Just an honest question.

These memes are pretty funny at times, and I assume something of this nature actually happened to launch it into its popularity.

If so, can some one post a video?

It's called TNA stealing WWE's unwanted talent, and having to use a different name because of copyright laws.

I understand that, but my question was if anything like that actually happened.

Not sure when it was first used, but if you start watching the TNA asylum PPV's I am sure you can find it.

It's because TNA has a knack at bringing in recently released WWE talent as soon as they are let go from the company and are given a different name altogether (real or not).

Christian Cage wouldn't surprise me as being a big one.

Lots of people say this meme is nonsense and makes no sense....Knux begs to differ.

I think Christian Cage debuting was the origin

I believe Tenay used it in a sentence
