Two nights ago, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling presented its Turning Point pay per view. Tonight, it is giving us their next two weeks of television. How will the company build on the pay per view and the Six Sides of Hell match between Triple X and America’s Most Wanted?
Before the tapings began, Raven came out on the Stage of Heelish Impact with a steady cameraman for something and then went back down the Chute of Heelish Impact.
Out next was Jimmy Hart to welcome the people in attendance to Impact, and then he was followed out by Jeremy Borash. Borash introduced the two announce teams, and making his return to the pre-show introduction was ‘The Franchise’ Shane Douglas.
