DID YOU ENJOY TNA WRESTLING HALL OF FAME COUNTDOWN TO BOUND FOR GLORY?
PPV every year and such.
I like it. If nothing this gets people talking about the brand for atleast a few months and it gives them the opportunity to stir shit up by bringing back the six sided ring for a specific PPV every year and such.
I know some people will question the decision and go blah blah blah but really what does Impact has to lose? Not like the rebranding will turn off 200K people from watching the show. Any publicity is good publicity for them imo
Really happy they decided to do this
I know there was always a lot of criticism of the name because of the expression it was a play on, but I really liked the TNA name because it was unique and easy to chant, and the logo was always super cool.
I was a TNA guy from early 2005 to about 2014. I never really was invested at all in the Impact name change. I think it was one of the dumbest moves Hogan and Bischoff made. Impact was the weekly program, not the wrestling company name – it made no sense. It would be like renaming WWE to Raw Wrestling. It never felt right, and came across as super generic.
We’re in the fucking new golden era of wrestling
AEW is a thing and has been mostly really good
WWE is actually good again (way too many ads and recaps though)
And now TNA is back! I hope Abyss comes back
I said in a daily thread that TNA >
Impact and got shit on and now this happens. I’m taking full responsibility for this.
I hope this isn’t permanent.
TNA really is a trashy name, and the impact rebrand really stuck.
Tits n Ass wrestling is back.
Seriously I hope this is a one off thing because Impact is a better long term name. Don’t have to ignore the past but don’t have to return to it.
Makes me sad Don West is no longer with us
. Had he been he for sure would have had to pop up for this first episode
I’ve called impact TNA anyway for the longest time so this is a good decision. TNA is needed especially after the downfall and now zombie ring of honor.
I never stopped calling it TNA.
Just for the record, I never stopped calling it TNA.
TNA is very hard to kill
“TNA will launch 2024 with Hard To Kill”. Indeed.
It cannot be killed.
TNA is the cockroach of professional wrestling, and I absolutely love it.
If Christian Cage is not automatically
If Christian Cage is not automatically re-instated as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, I riot.
Tony Khan is gonna be shaking
Tony Khan is gonna be shaking in his boots when Shark Boy enters the impact zone on Wednesday nights
TNA was what was holding back the promotion
I’m old enough to remember when people said the name TNA was what was holding back the promotion
TNA brand with all the good
Smart, enough years have passed the TNA brand with all the good and the bad has nostalgic value. If they improve their production with the already good product they could establish themselves as the definitive nr 3 in the US
Give me back the old belts,
the old tunnel arena, and the cross the line theme, and I will tune into impact for the first time since like 2016. I got to say a big reason why I’m coming back is also because of OSW‘s reviews of the main event mafia arc currently, but yeah I will 100% come back the roster right now is incredible, and they deserve all of the attention in the world. Don West is smiling from heaven.
Generally speaking I’m all in in the “WE ARE SO BACK” Camp,
but it’s also sort of weird to see them going back to TNA branding after trying for the last decade to get a good foothold as Impact and getting back into the swing of things in the last couple of years.
Like… Tell me if I’m wrong, but the post-Covid years must have been some of the most stable (even if not the biggest) years in the companies history, right?
Okay I guess…?
Back to tits’n ass after all these years rebuilding their name and being called impact on every social media channel?
Good news for my brain that can’t process new information,
I’ve been calling it TNA for years. It’s such a better name than Impact
Idk seems kind of bad to me
All that hard work to scrub their image and their going right back as soon as people were moving past it. .
Let’s fucking gooo00o.
That logo fills me with so much nostalgia
TNA for over a decade
ITT ppl celebrating the return of TNA after relentlessly shitting on TNA for over a decade
TNA is just a horrible name for a wrestling company.
It’s such a corny double entendre that was outdated by 2008, let alone 2023.
I like the idea of a rebrand, maybe going with a new acronym would have been better.
TNA can emerge as a bigger
Hopefully this means TNA can emerge as a bigger player in American Wrestling
Either way WE OWN THE NIGHT BOYS
Could this potentially mean the return of the 6-sided ring ?
best ppv to bring TNA.
Hard to Kill is definitely the best ppv to bring TNA.
TNA is just kinda stuck as the name of the company.
Also TNA will do better as the new “ROH”/3rd wrestling company.
Iemprace that you aren’t a competitor to WWE or AEW.
I hate this,
always hated the TNA name and was very happy when they changed to Impact.
I dunno man…
kinda feel like telling someone you like Impact Wrestling sounds much better than telling someone you like TNA Wrestling… tits n ass wrestling?
I really love this,
idk if im a Nostalgia head, but this is just cool. Plus it’s the name everyone knew.
For nostalgic purposes,
I love it. I can still remember 10-year-old me in 2007 randomly switching channels one night, seeing Kurt Angle in the ring with all the championships and being like “holy fuck what is this”
But IMPACT is just objectively a better name for a wrestling company tbh
In a vacuum, the TNA name is terrible and reeks of early 2000s desperate edginess.
But the company has been around long enough that the name only really has nostalgic connotations now to wrestling fans. The Impact Wrestling era, while much smaller, has wiped away a lot of the LOLTNA awfulness from memory, so going back to TNA as a name with the company’s current approach feels fresh and exciting. It’s giving the company its old identity back. I’m all for it.
. Let’s fucking go, dude.
This company knew what they were doing when they named a PPV Hard To Kill
They’re going back to TNA?
Wow. Honestly it has a strong brand name within the world of wrestling and I don’t feel “TNA” is used as slang anymore, so might as well do it. Pretty crazy to see.
I have no idea what’s going on
but I will follow Scott D’Amore to the ends of the earth TNA! TNA! TNA! #CrossTheLine
how was the show tonight?
Rebranding back to TNA is pretty cool especially given the coming production overhaul and just general Nostalgia, seems like a great time to make a move like this.
TNA has finally paid off.
Years of me insisting on calling it
I love this.
TNA has always been the most recognizable name of the company that people have been familiar with for years. Hopefully people will finally stop sleeping on it as it’s been constantly good for the last 3 years or so.
Let’s fuckin gooo
I got so irrationality happy watching this. TNA was part of my childhood in wrestling, and not a small part either
Total Nonstop Action, RECLAIM IT!
TNA is back with the soul of impact!
“We still hear the ‘TNA’ chants wherever we go,”
said IMPACT Wrestling President Scott D’Amore. “Fans have longed for TNA Wrestling, so that’s what we’re bringing back in 2024: TNA Wrestling, we’re back!”
Company officials confirmed that the new year will launch a new-look TNA Wrestling that runs from the entrance ramp to turnbuckles in the ring to larger, more prestigious venues and much, much more. Further details on the TNA Wrestling return will be revealed on Tuesday, October 24, when D’Amore sits down for an exclusive interview with Tom Hannifan that will air live on IMPACT’s Facebook page, starting at 12noon EST. The Q&A will include questions from worldwide pro wrestling media.
TNA WILL NEVER DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE
BABY LETS GO
I JUST CROSSED THE LINE
we’re so back
Cross the line bros
TNA IS BACK BABY!!!
YOU CAN NOT KILL WHAT WON’T DIE
And if Bound for Glory is a sign of things to come, It’s gonna be brilliant
