It seems like with the way they're seating the audience and the different camera angles it looks like the Impact Zone is a lot bigger on TV recently. They're doing a good job making it look like a real arena rather than a TV studio.

Its because they are using the side camrea that moves around more from a higher angle. If they had a proper stage set that had a theme to it and was much less messy.It would as well make the place look much bigger. With the stage being so confusing and just filled with random stuff.It makes the place look cramped. I would way rather have a more simple stage set that maybe is more unie. Theme to it.

Nothing wrong with the stage they have now, it's one of the few things that makes the IZ looks half legit. Take that away then it's just a sound stage with around 1,000 every week.

One thing TNA does need to stop doing, and this is me saying this not just as a TNA fan, but someone who's worked in the media. They have to stop constantly going for the crane cam when it's swooping in down the right revealing the massive gaps between where the floor seats and the standing pit meets to the stands. If they can't rope in the visitors like they used to, then they need to limit that crane shot. Or at least only use it slightly zoomed in, so it doesn't show the huge gaps.

It's like at Lockdown, when the crane shot kept showing the massive empty spaces behind the few rows of floor seats on the hard cam side. Just terrible work by the guys in the truck that they aren't putting a stop to it.

I think that if TNA are going to stay in the Impact Zone it needs a new look. It just looks boring, awful and to big and chunky for a relativity small arena.

It needs to be small, but not to small and simple. The riser screens they've used on the road would be good, but with only two screens instead, and they should move the commentary table to where WWE have theirs.

It might cost alot but TNA really lacks in the production value..

And not only the stage, for example all ring ropes, entrance ramp/ring post decals, the titantron, ring skirts are blue, however the lighting on the crowd is for example yellow which just doesn't look good or match very well. All the lights in the Impact Zone should be the same colour blue, except for above the ring and commentator table
