The first iMPACT! taping of the new year will take place on January 3rd, 2006.
As noted here before, there are plans to bring in international talent from Japan and Mexico. PWI also reports that there are plans for TNA to take the independent bookings of their talents in house in 2006.
TNA will continue to air video packages of their stars on episodes of iMPACT!. There are already videos in the works for Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Monty Brown and Ron Killings. This is obviously a great move by TNA as they can get their stars over more with their fans.
TNA is hoping Sting’s name/star power will draw media attention.
