At Tuesday’s TNA iMPACT! tapings from Orlando (set to air next Thursday, 5/2), Mick Foley was revealed to be the person from “the network” that has been keeping Hulk Hogan in line.
Foley came out and interrupted a promo by Immortal, informing them that TNA iMPACT! will now be known as “Impact Wrestling” – and the show will be “all about wrestling” – a clear jab at WWE, which has been distancing itself from everything “wrestling” in recent months.
Later in the show, they actually re-shot the entire segment, with Mick Foley saying that the show is no longer “TNA” – but “Impact Wrestling”.
This led to some confusion as to whether it was the company name that was changing – or just the name of the television show.
In response to the confusion – Hulk Hogan tweeted the following on Wednesday, which appears to indicate that the “TNA” name is no more:
“No TNA. only IMPACT. HH”
TNA recently registered a trademark for the name “Impact Wrestling” and took over several domain names related to the trademarked name, including “ImpactWrestling.com.”

Thoughts??

I knew it would be Foley. When he said “all about wrestling” I wonder how much segments and promo's they'll be cutting short or just scrapping them all together. Hopefully it's not just a name change for more ratings. As for the last surprise at that taping that you didn't mention, I'll give the devils their due, did not expect "her."

You know the "all about wrestling" was a straight shot at WWE

I know, but what I was saying that maybe they were saying that if their writers couldn't make decent storylines, they shouldn't at all and just make Impact Wrestling more like ROH.

To be fair, Impact Wrestling is a crap name.

It just sounds pathetic to me man, at least TNA has a bit of a different style going on, I just don't like it. People aren't creative enough anymore.

Next, it'll be called Shaking Hitting Impact Wrestling, don't do the anagram.

it's better to be called impact wrestling than tna wrestling just because it's not focused on the total nonstop action anymore

Excellent point Kevin, but it's not had much Impact recently either.

We can hope man.

But for me, business-wise, this is not a good move if true. Changing a name of a growing band can spell disaster, many will wonder where TNA has gone, and more to the point it's almost as if they have to build from the ground up again.

And the obvious stab at WWE is idiotic too, because it's concentrating too much fire on them.

They should just ignore WWE and get on with making a great product, it's all I'm saying.

If all they did was change the name then is anything really going to change? Impact Wrestling will be just as bad as TNA if Russo and the current writing team is still there.

That's just my idea man, I think it would have been better to change the name when TNA was known massively around the world.
