TNA President Dixie Carter used the “multi-year” description in an email sent out to TNA wrestlers and staff yesterday announcing the deal and move to POP TV. Nothing had been said to the performers prior to the announcement, which was likely done to prevent any leaks.

While Carter traveled to Los Angeles Monday to finalize the deal with Pop, the word in certain circles the week before was that the deal had been completed.

The first Impact Wrestling episode on POP TV on Tuesday 1/5/16 will be a live broadcast. It’s not going to be pre-taped material from the India tour. TNA will announce taping details shortly. The company had looked into running the taping in NYC but that is not likely to happen.

After the India tour in December, the company has TV tapings in the UK on 1/29 in Manchester, 1/30 in London and 1/31 in Birmingham. It will be the company’s first taping ever in Birmingham.
