Championship tonight debuts on Impact Wrestling


Back in April, Hulk Hogan announced a new format to IMPACT WRESTLING on Spike TV – “Open Fight Night”. This once-a-month special gave anyone on IMPACT the opportunity to call out anyone on the roster and that person had to fight. Along with “Gut Check”, the episode featured a championship match where Hulk Hogan decided the challenger. Starting Thursday night and happening once a month, “Championship Thursday” will break out into its own episode of IMPACT WRESTLING on Spike TV – Hulk Hogan announced to today.

On “Championship Thursday”, an IMPACT WRESTLING champion will walk to the ring not knowing whom they will face. During this monthly episode, four challengers will meet with Hulk Hogan and plead their case why they deserve the shot at the champion. One by one, the challengers will be eliminated until bell time when two challengers remain. As the champion stands in the ring ready to defend, Hogan makes the final decision and the title match starts right then!

On Thursday, the World Tag Team Champions – Kazarian and Christopher Daniels -walk to the ring not knowing their foes. Hulk Hogan will sit down with four sets of challengers and hear their case during the broadcast! The challengers will be AJ Styles and a partner of his choosing, Robbie E & Robbie T, Gunner and Kid Kash, and Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez!

Tune into Spike TV on Thursday at 8/7c to see how it unfolds LIVE!

    Wasn’t this already part of “Open Fight Night”? Same thing with the TV title, now defunct, being defended every week?

    TNA has so much potential, but drop sooooo many things along the way without rhyme or reason that it’s always 2 steps forward, one step back.

    Can someone PLEASE defend TNA without bringing up WWE? I would love a logical and rational answer why they rush gimmicks and angles that never have any real merit. Anybody?

    The best way to answer that is *shoulder shrug*

    @ILMH, I’ve been a pro wrestling fan for almost thirty years and yes I do watch TNA and feel privileged enough to watch every other fed I find interesting on the interweb. TNA is filled with a great mix of wrestlers, but the obvious problems that I see are: 1. run poorly by a corporation with lots of money and no knowledge of the business 2. The management of the writers and producers are a mashed up unit at best thus confusing storylines. 3. Some of these WWE retreads not all of them, ruin potential on air screen time for up and coming wrestlers who aren’t familiar to the masses. My conclusion, without the financial backing to keep this boat afloat this is WCW all over again. Wash, Rinse, Repeat!
