Impact Wrestling is an American professional wrestling promotion. It was founded in Nashville, Tennessee in 2002 by Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Jarrett. Impact wrestling operates with the help of its parent company, Anthem Wrestling Exhibitions, LLC which is a subsidiary of Anthem Sports & Entertainment. It is headquartered at 3201 Dickerson Pike, Nashville, Tennessee, United States.
After the World Championship Wrestling (WCW) came to an end in 2001, the concept of TNA Wrestling was born. After the end of WCW, the World Wrestling Federation or the WWF became the only wrestling production being nationally televised in the United States. Vince Russo who joined Jeff and Jerry Jarrett in 2002, coined the name "Total Nonstop Action".
Initially, TNA broadcasted weekly pay-per-view shows which served as the company's main source of revenue. At that time other promotions were holding monthly pay-per-view events. Most of these shows were held at the Tennessee State Fairground Sports Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. It was nicknamed the "TNA Asylum".
Since it was founded, it underwent a lot of renaming. It was initially known as National Wrestling Alliance: Total Nonstop Action Wrestling or NWA: TNA Wrestling, when it used to be a part of the NWA. In 2004 it was renamed as TNA Wrestling. In 2017 TNA Wrestling was renamed Impact Wrestling.
The Impact Wrestling roster is made up of wrestlers, on-air personnel such as the ring announcers, commentators and backstage interviewers. Not to forget the referees and the backstage staff. The Impact Wrestling Championships which are currently active are: Impact World Championship, Impact X Division Championship, Impact World Tag team Championship and the Impact Knockouts Championship.
The role of the Impact Wrestling Manager, is a part of an authority figure. The general manager actually serves as a public booker, arranging matches for their managed wrestlers. Oftentimes the general manager is either a former manager or superstar themselves. Some of the current famous on-screen Impact Wrestling General Managers are Gama Singh, the general manager of the Desi Hit Squad and John E. Bravo, the manager of Taya Valkyrie. There have been several other Impact Wrestling General Managers in the past.
IMPACT Wrestling just like it's other counterparts have their own prestigious Championship titles which form the centre of most of its storylines. The list of Impact Wrestling Championships includes IMPACT World Championship, IMPACT X Division Championship, IMPACT World Tag Team Championship and IMPACT Knockouts Championship. Since IMPACT Wrestling used the trade name NWA-Total Nonstop Action (from 2002-2004) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (from 2004-2017), the TNA Wrestling Current Champions and IMPACT Wrestling Champions are the same.
During the TNA Wrestling Era in 2002, Impact Wrestling used to hold weekly pay-per-views. It held a total of 114 pay-per-views before it switched to the monthly pay-per-view concept in 2004. The monthly pay-per-view events continued till January 2013. In 2013 they switched to a schedule with four events per year. The major and most heavily promoted events by Impact Wrestling are Bound for Glory, Slammiversary and Lockdown.
Impact Wrestling has held a countless number of pay-per-views under countless names. Some of them are: Victory Road, Turning Point, Final Resolution, Destination X, Against all odds, the list is very long.
