Originally published at TNA announces Digital Media Championship match and more for Hard to Kill pre-show

TNA has announced three matches for its Hard to Kill pre-show on January 13th.

Unlike pre-show portions under the IMPACT banner, which were free to stream, TNA notes, “the only way to see the first matches of the new era of TNA Wrestling is to download the app and subscribe.”

Tommy Dreamer will defend his Digital Media Championship on the Countdown Show against Crazzy Steve.

Also scheduled for the pre-show are Rich Swann vs. Steve Maclin, and Eric Young & Frankie Kazarian vs. Brian Myers and Eddie Edwards.

Further pre-show matches are due to be announced.

TNA stated that the pre-show will stream live exclusively on the TNA+ service at 7 pm ET, ahead of the main card at 8 pm ET.

TNA+ was announced on December 8th as a collaboration with Endeavor Streaming.

Although the company is already using the new branding, Hard to Kill is billed as the first event under IMPACT’s return to the TNA Wrestling brand.
