Inside Scoop on the Revival of the TNA Brand

Inside Scoop on the Revival of the TNA Brand

During the Bound for Glory pay-per-view, Impact Wrestling declared that it will transition back to its original TNA brand, beginning with the Hard to Kill PPV event scheduled for January.

PWInsider reports the shift was initially planned for Slammiversary but was delayed until Bound for Glory. Insiders indicated the final decision was cemented roughly 2-3 weeks ago.

Multiple reasons influenced this rebranding, according to sources. The first reason is to consolidate the company's varied history, which saw it known by different names, including TNA, Global Force Wrestling, and most recently, Impact Wrestling. Secondly, several of the company's international partners had a preference for the TNA name and were still utilizing it internally. Additionally, earlier this year, a quiet poll among long-time fans revealed a general preference for the TNA moniker.

A wave of TNA nostalgia was felt in 2020 when the company reintroduced the TNA World Title for Moose, with an initial plan to relaunch TNA as an independent TV series and perhaps even its own promotion. These plans were, however, halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The forthcoming TV series will bear the name TNA Impact Wrestling. New championship belts are set to be unveiled in January. TNA has confirmed it will not be reinstating the six-sided ring, citing wrestlers' preference for the four-sided ring due to its lower physical toll.
