Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (commonly referred to as TNA) is an American privately held organization dealing primarily in professional wrestling, with major revenue sources also coming from live events, product licensing, and direct product sales. Founded by its former President, Jeff Jarrett, and former CEO, Jerry Jarrett in 2002, it is currently the largest privately held organization dealing primarily in professional wrestling promotion in America, reaching over 1 million viewers in the U.S. and broadcasting its shows to more than 550 countries and counting.
Robert W. Carter was the majority owner of the company after having purchased a controlling interest (71%) through his family's company, Panda Energy International (where he was the head executive), in 2002 from Jerry. However, according to recent reports, Janice Carter, Robert's wife & the mother of Dixie Carter, Robert's daughter & TNA's President, has taken over control of Panda Energy, as Robert has moved onto Panda Energy's new parent company, Panda Power Funds, possibly meaning that Janice has replaced Robert as the company's majority shareholder. Jeff, the company's current Vice President, reportedly remains as minority owner (29%) of the organization. Carter's daughter, Dixie, is President of the company. The company's headquarters are located in Nashville, Tennessee.

The concept of TNA originated shortly after the end of World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Bob Ryder, Jeff Jarrett, and Jerry Jarrett went on a fishing trip and contemplated their futures in the business of wrestling. The only wrestling product on U.S. national television was the WWE. Ryder felt that this situation led many television stations to regard wrestling as bad for business and suggested a company that does not need television, but rather just goes straight to pay-per-view. The Jarretts found the help they needed, and the company put on its first show on June 19, 2002. This night, however, in a dark match just before they went on the air, a 450 lb wrestler named Cheex hit the ropes with so much force that one of them broke. The estimated repair time was 30–60 minutes, which they did not have because the schedule called for them to go live in a few minutes, whether the ring was ready or not. Backstage, the producers shuffled the schedule so that some non-wrestling segments went first to give the ring crew some more time, but they did not have many of them. The ring crew fixed the rope with the help of Ron and Don Harris, and everyone went live hoping for the best.
In May 2004, TNA Wrestling announced that they would be including a television program on Fox Sports, dubbed TNA iMPACT!, at Soundstage 21 in Universal Studios Florida. The transition included the use of a six-sided wrestling ring, the implementation of the "Fox Box" displaying competitors and timekeeping for the match, and a generally more sports-like style than the sports-entertainment style exemplified by the wrestling business .
With the switch to cable television, TNA discontinued their weekly pay-per-view shows in favor of a monthly 3-hour pay-per-view format as previously utilized by WCW and ECW and as currently used by the wrestling business. In November 2004, TNA held the first of these pay-per-views, Victory Road, beginning the pattern of pay-per-view shows that continues to this day.
The television contract with Fox Sports expired in May 2005 and was not renegotiated, leaving TNA without television exposure. This prompted TNA to air iMPACT! via webcasts - originally made available via BitTorrent and eventually via RealPlayer. During this time TNA continued pursuing a profitable television deal for regular broadcasting. On October 1, 2005, TNA iMPACT! began airing on Spike TV, returning the company to national cable-exposure.
In November 2006, TNA began holding select pay-per-views outside of its central filming location, the TNA Impact! Zone, in Orlando. In April 2006, TNA announced a partnership with YouTube whereby TNA supplied YouTube with exclusive video-content in exchange for hosting, leading to the production of internet shows. In January 2007, TNA's mobile-content deal with New Motion, Inc. led to the introduction of TNA Mobile and mobile fan-voting. TNA has also launched "TNA U TV"; podcasts aired through YouTube to help promote the company. On June 21, 2009, TNA launched an online video-vault subscription-service where subscribers could watch past pay-per-views by choosing one of three payment options.
On October 23, 2008, TNA made the transition to HD and since then all programming has been broadcast in high-definition. In addition, TNA introduced a new HD set that included new lighting and several large high-resolution screens. As of 2013[update] it uses this set - albeit altered several times - for all Impact! programming and pay-per-views. On November 7, 2011, TNA announced that it had reached a deal with Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) to become TNA's official training and developmental territory. In December 2011, TNA debuted their new India-based subsidiary promotion Ring Ka King. In March 2013, TNA President Dixie Carter stated that TNA was a profitable company. However, on November 2, 2013, TNA ceased the relationship with OVW.
Initially, TNA's weekly pay-per-view show operated as the company's main source of revenue, in place of monthly pay-per-view events used by other promotions. These shows started on June 19, 2002 and took place mostly at the Asylum in Nashville, Tennessee. After 27 months and 110 PPVs, TNA felt that they had enough of a fanbase to begin holding a weekly television show and monthly three-hour pay-per-views. The last weekly PPV was held on September 8, 2004. TNA Xplosion was launched on November 27, 2002 as TNA's first regular cable show and featured exclusive matches from the TNA Asylum as well as exclusive interviews with TNA Superstars. On November 18, 2004, the show became a recap show of the previous week's Impact! in light of alterations in the taping schedule. However, Xplosion resumed airing exclusive matches (billed as "Xplosion Xclusives") once more on October 7, 2005 in addition to recapping Impact!. The "Xplosion Xclusives" also aired on the now-ceased TNA Global Impact! internet show. Airing of Xplosion in the United States ceased at the end of 2006, although some of the exclusive matches can be seen on TNA Today.
TNA began airing TNA Impact! (officially typeset "TNA iMPACT!") on June 4, 2004 on Fox Sports Net. After TNA's contract with Fox Sports Net was not renewed the following year, TNA was forced to broadcast Impact! from their official website, while seeking a new television outlet. TNA later secured a deal with Spike TV and aired its first episode on October 1, 2005. Impact! expanded to a two-hour format on October 4, 2007. On February 15, 2010, TNA made a new deal with Spike TV, which moved Impact! to Monday nights—directly opposite the Raw (Although the network kept the Thursday-night slot open for repeats of the Monday-night shows). The first episode took place March 8, 2010.
In December 2009, Dixie Carter announced in an interview that TNA Epics, which had recently aired its first season exclusively in the United Kingdom, would be debuting in the United States in January 2010. The second season began on January 14, 2010. TNA Epics showcased matches and events from the history of TNA Wrestling. The show was hosted by Mick Foley, and aired on one Thursday each month on Spike, until April 2010. On April 12, 2010, TNA wrestling aired a pilot episode of their new show TNA Reaction, which is a documentary-style show that presents an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the stars of TNA speaking about taking on their rivals.
Spike TV's decision to keep Thursday nights open for repeats of Impact! proved to be a smart move, for the show floundered in the Monday-night ratings opposite Raw. On May 3, 2010, TNA announced that Impact! would be moved back to Thursday nights, re-branded as "TNA Thursdays". At the same time the company also announced that Spike had picked up Reaction, which would start airing weekly prior to each episode of Impact!, starting June 24. The premiere date for Reaction was later changed to July 15, when it would start airing after Impact! instead of before it. However, in late June Reaction was pulled from Spike's schedule. On August 3, 2010, TNA announced that Reaction would premiere on August 12 and air every Thursday following Impact!. Also in June, TNA revamped Xplosion, still airing on international markets, making it more of an original program instead of a highlight show. On December 27, 2010, Reaction was officially canceled by Spike, with its final episode airing three days later. In the UK, Impact! was broadcast on Bravo which ceased by British Sky Broadcasting on January 1, 2011. A new deal was struck on January 25, 2011 with Sky to start broadcasting Impact! on Challenge.
On May 3, 2011, TNA Impact! was re-branded Impact Wrestling. On May 31, 2012, Impact Wrestling began airing live at a new start time of 8pm EST on Thursday nights. The live schedule would continue throughout 2012. From July 12 onwards, TNA was set to have a three hour block every Thursday, with a new one hour program named Rewind airing before Impact Wrestling at 7pm EST. However, the program was canceled after only one episode, which garnered a 0.2 rating. On July 11, DirecTV, the carrier of Spike, blocked all Viacom stations affecting TNA viewership from DirecTV subscribers. On July 20, DirecTV announced that it had reached an agreement with Viacom and had added back all 17 removed channels, which included SpikeTV.
On January 31, 2013, TNA Wrestling announced that they would tape their weekly show Impact Wrestling in different venues around the United States, with the first live show being held on March 14, 2013 in the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois (a Chicago suburb). However, due to financial problems, TNA decided to go back to Orlando for all future television tapings.
House shows and touring
TNA started running house shows on March 17, 2006. In 2007, TNA Wrestling first toured Europe with APW Wrestling, hosting two shows at Oporto and Lisbon in Portugal. In August 2007, live-events coordinator Craig Jenkins stated that TNA intended to stage eight pay-per-views and 96 house shows outside Orlando, Florida in 2008. In 2008, TNA conducted its first tour of the UK, and it's second European tour, with most shows selling out. 2009 saw the promotion tour Germany for the first time. On July 2, 2010, MCU Park hosted a live Total Nonstop Action Wrestling house show, which also broke the current TNA attendance record and is currently the most attended live TNA house show in the USA, with a capacity crowd of 5,550.
TNA left Universal Studios and took Impact Wrestling on the road; they tape two episodes every other week in various venues and arenas. TNA will be returning to Universal Studios as a home base on November 21, 2013; tape from Soundstage 19, there will still we be “select” tapings on the road from time to time.
Since its origin, TNA has featured a high-flying, high risk style of wrestling known as its X Division. Rather than emphasizing the fact that most wrestlers who perform this style are under 220 lb (100 kg) by calling it a cruiserweight division, TNA decided to emphasize the high risk nature of the moves that these wrestlers perform, removing all restraints on its wrestlers, allowing them to perform almost stunt like wrestling moves. Originally, there was no upper weight limit on the X Division or its title, though in practice, most of the wrestlers in this division have been cruiserweights, with Samoa Joe, billed at 280 lb (130 kg), Kurt Angle, billed at 230 lb (100 kg), and Abyss, billed at 350 lb (160 kg), being notable exceptions. To further emphasize this point, the slogan "It's not about weight limits, it's about no limits" was used to describe the division. Although it was de-emphasized throughout 2007, the X Division is generally regarded as one of the key attractions of TNA and was replicated in several other promotions. In August 2011, the division was given a 225 lb (102 kg) weight limit. This was quietly repealed in March 2012. In March 2013, Dixie Carter announced new rule changes to the X Division with a new weight limit of 230 lbs. and all X Division matches being triple threat matches. However, in August 2013, all X Division matches are to be reverted to single matches.
Bound For Glory
Bound for Glory is a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced every October by the American Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion. The event was created in 2005 to be their premier event of the year.
The Bound For Glory Series is a tournament held every year during the months of June to September. In the tournament, twelve different wrestlers compete against each other to earn points. The final four wrestlers advance to the final four semi-finals where it becomes a tournament. The winner of this 4-man tournament will win the BFG Series and earn a World Title shot at Bound For Glory.
The tournament was created in 2011 and has seen both Bobby Roode and Jeff Hardy as its winners. Both men would go on to win the World Heavyweight Title just months later even though Roode failed to win the championship at Bound For Glory.
Points are earned through different types of victory. Along the way there will be a number of specialty matches that will earn wrestlers more points than usual (Gauntlet Matches, Ladder Matches etc.) The top four wrestlers with the most points at the end of the series will advance to the mini-tournament. It has been traditional that the first place wrestler will get to choose his semi-final opponent from the other three finalists.
TNA Hall of Fame
The TNA Hall of Fame was announced on May 31, 2012. As part of the yearly process, selected inductees will be chosen based on their overall contributions to TNA's history. On June 10 at Slammiversary, Sting was revealed as the first inductee into the Hall of Fame. His formal induction took place at Bound for Glory in October 2012. On June 2, 2013 TNA president Dixie Carter revealed that the newest member of the TNA Hall of Fame is the Olympic Gold medalist Kurt Angle, however, Angle declined the invitation on the October 26th episode of Impact, stating he wasn't ready to join Sting, and that he had a lot more left in him before he could join Sting in the TNA Hall of Fame.
TNA wrestlers are forbidden by contract from working for other companies with televised wrestling shows, but are free to perform non-televised work for any other independent wrestling promotions, domestic or international, as well as televised events held by foreign promotions that TNA is linked to or has a working relationship with such as Ring Ka King, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Noah, and Asistencia Asesoría y Administración. Many TNA wrestlers perform regularly for various promotions on the independent circuit in addition to TNA's weekly shows. However, in 2012, TNA changed policy, preventing its talent from appearing at any independent events that are later released on DVD. The top TNA stars have guaranteed contracts but the majority of TNA wrestlers are paid on a per appearance basis. TNA wrestlers are classified as independent contractors and are not entitled to form workers' unions or employer health coverage.
