Originally published at IMPACT Wrestling will revert to ‘TNA’ name in 2024

IMPACT Wrestling will revert to its previous Total Nonstop Action (TNA) branding in January 2024.

The transition is to go into effect at Hard To Kill, the company’s first pay-per-view event of 2024. The show takes place on Sunday, January 14th, at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The move came to light on Saturday night as the Bound For Glory pay-per-view came to an end, when a video was aired.

Further details will be revealed on Tuesday, October 24th, when IMPACT Wrestling President Scott D’Amore sits down with Tom Hannifan for an interview that will air live on IMPACT’s Facebook page, starting at 12 noon ET. The company stated that the Q&A will include questions from “worldwide pro wrestling media.”

IMPACT’s corporate owner, Anthem Sports and Entertainment, pushed out a press release late on Saturday night to confirm the switch.

In part, the release states:

TNA will launch 2024 with Hard To Kill on Saturday, January 13, with a second night of action-packed professional wrestling – the “Snake Eyes Extravaganza Show” – at The Palms on Sunday, January 14. The Snake Eyes Extravaganza Show will be taped to air on the company’s flagship weekly TV show, Impact!, airing every Thursday night on AXS TV (8 p.m. EST).

“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!”

Tickets for both Hard To Kill on January 13 and the Snake Eyes Extravaganza Show on January 14 will be on-sale on Friday, November 4, at

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 Wrestling launched in the summer of 2002 and has long been known as the most innovative professional wrestling company in the world. TNA is known for its high-risk, action-packed X Division matches that have run with one simple motto: It’s not about weight limits, it’s about no limits. Stars of the X Division have included Chris Sabin, with a record 10 title reigns; A.J. Styles, the first-ever champion; along with Jay Lethal, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, Petey Williams, Frankie Kazarian and Trey Miguel, among others.

TNA is also the home of the prestigious Knockouts Division, widely regarded as the best women’s division in all professional wrestling. The Knockouts Division features Trinity, Deonna Purrazzo, Mickie James, Jordynne Grace, Gisele Shaw, Masha Slamovich, KiLynn King, Jessicka and Courtney Rush, among others. Legendary past Knockouts include Gail Kim, Awesome Kong, The Beautiful People, Taya Valkyrie, ODB, Tara, Traci Brooks and so many others.

I braved PWInsider’s site to read Mike Johnson’s story on this.

First of all, they are not planning to bring back the six-sided ring. They have already made new TNA-branded title belts for the champions to be introduced in January.

Johnson & company were told the decision was locked in 2-3 weeks ago and was made because they wanted to unite the fragmented history of the company (uh…), a number of their international partners preferred the TNA name and were still using it internally, and the company quietly polled long-term fans and learned many of them also preferred the TNA name.

Looks to me that IMPACT should’ve used the other three letters instead…

TVA would’ve been a much slicker name.
