Conceptually, the WrestleCon annual Impact event is one of the more intriguing of the year. In 2018, it was Impact Wrestling vs Lucha Underground. In 2019, many promotions came together for United We Stand. This year, TNA Wrestling was supposed to return for "No Place Like Home." The execution for the past events never matched my expectations, however I was looking forward to this year's show.
Unfortunately, following the unprecedented global health crisis, we may never get the Fite.TV portion of the TNA concept many of us were looking forward to. Whether it is postponed or cancelled altogether is a question for another day.
What originally was to serve as a preview of sorts for the PPV was the "TNA on AXS" one-hour special. It was supposed to be a teaser of bigger things yet to come. Sadly, it become the show that took us down memory lane.
This column looks at some of the forgotten concepts from TNA's past. I will look at the history of the concept and then break down if it could be recycled for today's product.
In 2008, TNA was in the middle of some of their greater years. With those years came strong ideas and terrible ideas. During a "This is TNA" special, TNA announced the creation of a new match type that would debut at that May's Sacrifice PPV.
It was later revealed that this match would be called the TerrorDome. It was based off of AAA's domed cage match. It would feature a plethora of X Division Talent looking to escape a giant red, domed cage through a hole on the top. This match bred chaos as things never slowed down and bodies fell from the cage continuously. Eventually, due to legalities, the TerrorDome Match was renamed the Steel Asylum.
3/31- Impact has announced that they have signed Kylie Rae to a long-term contract. PWInsider is reporting that the deal was actually signed a few weeks ago.
The Impact Wrestling universe has years of history. As a fan, you watch as the wrestlers climb towards the glory of championship gold while also settling personal feuds along the way.
This editorial is about secondary shoulder programming that could expand the Impact Cinematic Universe. It is based off of concepts that Impact has done within the past two years.
