Impact Wrestling has announced via Twitter of their plans to return to Orlando for five days worth of tapings beginning January 10th through January 15th:

Impact Wrestling’s last batch of tapings took place in Ottawa, Canada after the company’s Bound for Glory PPV event, where TNA Hall of Famer Gail Kim wrestled her final match for the company and will transition to a backstage agent role.

It was previously reported that Impact would be Canada based going forward due to the Impact Wrestling’s parent company Anthem Sports & Entertainment being based in Canada.

One Knockouts feud fans can expect to play out when the company returns to Orlando for these tapings is the bad blood between Rosemary and Taya Valkyrie – who were originally set to square-off in a Red Wedding (First Blood) match at Bound for Glory.

The new year may also see the departure of Laurel Van Ness, who has reportedly asked for her release from the company. In addition, the Impact have already teased the debut of a new Knockout in Hania for 2018.

What are your thoughts on Impact’s return to Orlando? What would you like to see happen in these first set of Impact Wrestling tapings for 2018? Will you be attending these shows? Let us know in the comments below!

    I just hope knockouts will have a resurgence.

    • Number One

      Same here! They need to add more KOs!

    • RadicallyRadic

      Bring in new/returning knockouts (KIERA! WHERE YOU AT GIRL?!? Havok? Hendrix?) and utilise the ones who aren’t being used (Ava Storie, Alisha Edwards, Diamante)

    • Jorge Hernandez Moran

      What they need to do is what they were doing in their golden days try to use as many girls as posible and try to atleast have 2 feuds aside from the title pic to build up characters

    I must be the only one who hates the work Knockout!! let them be called Star just like the men and start calling the title Women’s title as the word Knockout DOESN’T appear on it at all!!!

    • RadicallyRadic

      I’m kind of okay with it. At least it’s not as demoralising as ‘Divas’ was.

    • Steven5812

      I’M good with “knockout”…

      …especially if THIS knockout comes back home.

      • Omar Zaal

        Can someone PLEASE upload her to WWE 2k CC?

        This year the game got all her moves.

      • RadicallyRadic

        Does she even still wrestle anymore? I’ve heard literally nothing about her other than being a substitute in the Mae Young Classic.

        • Steven5812

          Word is she’s trying her hand at boxing; and she’s done some MMA – against some Brazilian she-hulk; it’s on Youtube, I think.

  • #FlairfortheGold
  • Jo9834

    Honestly it just doesn’t feel the same without Gail, she was the one consistent in the division. Emma popping up and snatching the division by storm would be amazing.

  • RadicallyRadic

    OH JOY! Back to the ‘Impact Zone’/Universal Hell hole! Can’t wait to see people sit on their hands and genuinely ask uninterested for a majority of these tapings. Non-wrestling fans… jeez.

    In any case, they NEED to bring in new Knockouts. Sure Hania will be debutting soon, but if Laurel really is going away, they HAVE to get new life. Or at least use the girls they have more effectviely (Alisha Edwards, Ava Storie, Diamante). Officially bring in Kiera Hogan! MAYBE get Tenille/Emma (kind of want to see if ROH will pick her up over Impact). Maybe look at bringing people back? I’d be so down for returns from people like Havok and Taeler Hendrix.

    • Malcolm James

      The new leader of OVE hints at Havok coming in to join his team against LAX when Diamante return to the ring

      • RadicallyRadic

        Kind of makes sense since Sami and Havok are an item.

      • Omar Zaal

        Fuck yeah
        Havok would slay in TNA.

    • Omar Zaal

      They need a big name to spice things up. Emma is a great choice.

      • RadicallyRadic

        I wouldn’t be against it. I’d just rather her go to Ring of Honor to maybe give them a MUCH NEEDED kick up the arse for their Womens division.

        • Omar Zaal

          It doesn’t have to be Emma
          They could bring back Tara or Kong
          Or hire Melina

  • Omar Zaal

    I wanna see Kong back
    But then last night I had a dream about Kharma returning to the WWE attacking Sasha Banks, that along with that video WWE released a few days ago Kharma is likely going back to the E.

    • Zeek Jones

      wait what video

      • Omar Zaal

        WWE uploaded a video about 5 superstars they would love to see make a comeback. Kharma was one of them.

  • IconicTrio

    Hania is basically a ready made star but it wouldn’t surprise me to see her hardly ever booked. TNA have wasted so many good talents over the years.
