TNA Impact Wrestling Revamps Pay-Per-View Lineup

Earlier this week I reported on special tapings that would be taking place the day before Genesis this coming weekend. It turns out now that TNA Wrestling will now only have four Pay-Per-Views a year and then on every first Friday of each month that doesn’t have a PPV there will be a 3 hour special event that will be like a PPV and have special themes to some of them. As we know the first One Night Only shows will be Joker’s Wild Tag Team Tournament” and “X-travaganza” There is no word on when these specific shows will air but it should be something to look forward to.

I think this is a great idea because it’s going to make the four big PPV’s have more impact and make it so they have much more meaning. The market for wrestling on pay-per-view was killed a long time ago when WWE, WCW, and ECW ran. There was three PPV’s a month and it just was complete overkill. For awhile I think WWE had like 15 or 16 PPV’s a year. I like the old school way of thinking here of like when you just had Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Summerslam, Survivor Series and then for TV specials you had Saturday Nights Main Event. In my opinion, that’s when WWE is what at it’s peak so maybe this could be the trick that gets TNA to the next level. Here is tentative schedule for 2013

January 13th-Genesis

March 10th- Lockdown
April 5th- One Night Only show (Also Wrestlemania weekend)
May 3rd- One Night Only show
June 9th- Slammiversary 
July 5th- One Night Only show
August 2nd- One Night Only show
September 6th- One Night Only show
October 13th- Bound For Glory
November 1st- One Night Only show
December 6th- One Night Only show
I personally like the direction TNA is going with this. I think it will add more depth to their brand and start giving people a chance to realize there is more then one wrestling company around. I will be curious to see how this all turns out and make sure to keep checking back for more news on the new strategy for TNA.
