Watch IMPACT Wrestling

Impact Wrestling (formerly called TNA iMPACT!) is a television program featuring professional wrestling in connection with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). The program is currently broadcast on the Spike cable TV network in both the United States and Canada. The show is also internationally broadcast in many different other regions and countries.

The general concept features between four and seven wrestling matches that occur over a two hour period. In addition, many other segments and interviews are included between every match. The merchandise and advertisements for the upcoming pay per view events often blend in with the programming, because of the derivative nature of the wrestling business.

Impact Wrestling films at Soundstage 21 in the Universal Studios theme park in Florida, as part of the Universal Orlando Resort. Admission is free, and the shows air live on Thursday evenings at 8pm eastern time. The show's opening theme song is by Dale Oliver and entitled Sinister Rise Above.

Initially, all of the single matches had a 10 minute time limit. Tag teams and the main event had 20 minute limits. If there was a time limit draw, winners were determined by three veteran wrestlers who comprised the NWA Championship Committee.

The show was actually first broadcast on the Fox Sports Net (FSN) from May 2004 to 2005. The Impact! Show was also syndicated through Canada on the RDS network and in Europe on its Fight Network. Later, the UK stations, Bravo and Bravo 2 aired it, as well as Eurosport. After the FSN contract expired, the parties decided not to negotiate a new one.

Following Fox Sports Net, the Impact! show aired on webcasts to save on production costs until October of 2005. It then began to broadcast on Spike TV, where the show was expanded to a two hour time slot in October of 2007. After the show left FSN, the time limits were abandoned, but returned again in late 2009.

The show was re-branded once again in May 2011 to its present state. The color scheme changed from red to white, blue and gray. TNA show tapings occurred at Huntsville, Alabama's Von Braun Center. They were also scheduled to appear in Knoxville, Tennessee's Coliseum and at Macon, Georgia's Coliseum. TNA taped the first international match in January, 2012 at London's Wembley Arena.

The show broadcasts in over 130 countries, as well as 17 different languages. It is one of the most successful and popular professional wrestling shows on television.
