As PWMania.com reported earlier, TNA Dixie Carter tweeted this afternoon that a “major announcement will be made on Thursday’s episode of Impact wrestling that will “change everything for our wrestlers, company & YOU our audience!”
According to f4wonline.com, the announcement will be that TNA will be taking Impact Wrestling on the road in 2013. It’s unknown at this point whether TNA will be giving up the Impact Zone or if they will still hold occasional Impact tapings there. When Impact goes on the road, TNA will air a live episode of Impact and then tape the following week’s show right afterwards. This is a similar format to the early days of WWE Monday Night RAW.
Thursday’s Impact episode was taped last week in Manchester, England and there were no reports of an announcement made for the live crowd, so the announcement will be edited into the show.
