TNA President Dixie Carter confirmed on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling that the show will go on the road "permanently" starting in March.
"For the past eight years, the most amazing wrestling fans in the world today have traveled from all over the world to come see us at Universal Studios in Orlando," Carter said on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling. "Now, it's time for us to take the cameras to you.
"I'm so excited to announce that the television tapings for Impact are going on the road permanently, and we're going to do that starting March 14th when we go live from Chicago at the Sears Centre Arena. And we couldn't have done any of this without you. So from all of us at TNA, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything and for making Impact Wrestling a global success. And we will see you in your hometown very soon."
Carter added the following on ImpactWrestling.com: "This is a tremendous step forward for TNA... This is a very important next evolution for the company, and I'm excited that the backdrop to the show will feature our great fans in larger arenas around the country and world."
The final two episodes of Impact Wrestling to be filmed from Orlando will be on February 28 and March 7.
"We are so grateful to Universal for being such fantastic partners and look forward to finding other ways to work together in the future," Carter said.
Tickets for the March 14th taping go on sale Friday, February 8th at the Sears Centre Arena box office and at SearsCentre.com. TNA will announce additional television dates in the coming weeks.

In a new interview with Chris Yandek of CYInterview.com, wrestling manager Paul Bearer/Percy Pringle speaks candidly about what he's been up to in his life and provides insight on many wrestling topics:
Percy says he's still under a WWE Legend's contract and keeps his pulse on everything going on in the business:
“People that don’t know, that don’t see me, I am still involved. I’m still under contract with WWE. I’m under a legends contract with WWE and I do things now and then with them like WrestleMania and go do signings, this, that and the other. Plus I work the independent organizations all around the country. I go out to L.A. once a month and do Championship Wrestling from Hollywood. We tape four weeks of TV once a month out there and some months I’m busy every weekend doing wrestling stuff."
When discussing the state of wrestling managers in the business, he says he keeps in touch with WWE's Ricardo Rodriguez and gives him tips:
“I think a hell of a lot of Ricardo Rodriguez who manages Alberto Del Rio. He has become a very good friend of mine and I give him tips all the time and not that he needs them. And when I see things that I like, I let him know that I liked it and he’s very respectful and very, knows the history of our business and he deserves to be where he’s at and other than Ricardo Rodriguez, there really isn’t any managers, you know WWE doesn’t have any managers. … Bobby Heenan and Lou Albano and I could just go on and on and on, you know all the old school managers, there are none.”
Giving his thoughts on Mick Foley being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, he shares a story that includes The Undertaker:
“I love him dearly. I had so much fun managing him when he was Mankind ‘cause we was going against The Undertaker. … We just had so much fun because he wore that mask, you know that covered half of his long hair and that mask and all that and we were just like kids out there all the time and I was the only one that could ever make The Undertaker laugh and he could be laughing and nobody ever knew it and the same with Mick Foley."
He says he knows his day will come when Paul Bearer gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame:
“I know that I will [be in the WWE Hall of Fame]. So that’s all I need to know. Whether it’s next year or whether it’s five years from now, I know the time’s coming."

Before another packed house Edith Poole and Grady Watson started the night off with an explanation as to the suspension of Grandmaster Sexay Brian Christopher. Edith stated she had numerous phone calls asking for an explanation for her actions. She stated her reason was Brian's interference in the match the week before between Superstar Bill Dundee and Jr Mauler. At this time they asked Kross to come out and explained to him that he would have also been suspended if they could have determined who hit the ring first. Grady then told Kross that someone wanted to talk to him and his partner Jr Mauler came out. Jr asked Kross to have faith in him to handle the situation with Dundee on his own. He didn't want to have to worry about him suffering further injury. Kross agreed to his partners wishes and promised to remain in the back. After 24/7 "sealed the deal" with sum brother love Jr assured the crowd that he would take care of the pint sized midget later on in the night.
The Hollywood Clique were quite proud of themselves for their attack oN Brody Hawk the week before leaving him in a pool of blood. With full attention on Brody the Clique got an unexpected surprise when they turned around to find the other half of Pure Destruction Cody Hawk standing behind them. PD cleared the ring and in no uncertain terms Cody let the Clique no they would pay for spilling his brothers blood with a good old fashioned AZZ kickin! (pic 8) The first match of the night was between the Bouncer and J Fuller. Bouncer got the pinfall in this one.
Cassanova Kid w/Bonecrusher faces The Hillbilly w/Hollywood Jimmy Blaylock. Bonecrusher was ordered to the back for this match up due to the fact he did not have a managers license. Cassanova Kid and the Hillbilly battled toe to toe but in aHollywood Jimy fashion he couldnt resist leaving his chair and interferring in the match. The highlight of the night was a big surprise for Holly wood as Bonecrusher came in the front door and clobbered Hollywood with a bag of powder. This made "Pillsburywood" I mean Hollywood livid. With the excitement outside the ring The Hillbilly didnt know what hit him and allowed Kid to get the win. Hollywood challenged Bone crusher to a loser leaves EPW match this Saturday night which he excepted without reluctance. Hollywood declaes he is bringing in someone who has never been to EPW but hatesw Bonecrusher, Cassanova Kid, Edith , Grady, and even Kross. The burning question is" Who can it be?"
The main event turned out to be exactly what Pure Destruction said it would be "An old fashioned AZZ kickin!" From the ringing of the bell PD was in control with the Hollywood Clique being stung by every blow! As Cody Hawk told them at the beginning of the night you will regret causing my brother to lose one drop of blood. The Clique thought they had been hit by a mack truck and that mack truck was named PURE DESTRUCTION ! As Brody Hawk and Neil Taylor battled outside the ring it allowed partner Cody Hawk to get the win over Bryan So Fine.

Here's a link to an interview with TNA's Dixie carter:
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Ok guys, let me first say I'm happy to join the Wrestling News Center family. I will post a "Keeping It Reel" column periodically just with opinions and etc. But first I will continue my awards for this past year.
Female Wrestler Of The Year: All the ladies of Magnificent Ladies Of Wrestling.
First off it is a cop out to give this award to several ladies, but it is just the truth. While most promotions just put two random girls that more often than not can't work, MLoW steadily uses some of the best girls from all over the world. Now some groups do use girls that know how to work, but most of the time it is girls that work for MLoW. I have seen first hand girls wrestling 10-15 matches in one day like it was nothing. And they actually wrestle!!!! Go figure. Girls like Melanie Cruise, Barbie Hayden, Nikki Lane, Lil Bit, and Million Dollar Baby have become mainstays for this unique promotion.
Tag Team Of The Year: The Asylum
Most people can't argue my pick. The Asylum aren't the best wrestling team, but they are the best actual "team". Most call Pappy and Psycho hardcore wrestlers. I disagree. I have seen them "work" and they are actually good. Most of the time they are involved in hardcore matches cause they are great at it and it fits their gimmick. Genetic Perfection are better wrestlers. NRG are better all around. But no team is booked more as a team and really work the tag team gimmick better than the Asylum. They have brought credibility back to tag team wrestling. If you name one true team in the Mid South, it would be Psycho and Pappy.
Best Technical Tag Team: Genetic Perfection
Alan Steel and Michael Barry are probably the best technicians in the ring. They can tell a story and have continued to make many teams look like a million dollars.
Best All Around Team: NRG
Anton Leveigh and Ricky Andrews have been "stealing the show" all over the Mid South. This may be the team to upend the Asylum as the best. Both can really go. Whether it is hardcore, high flying, or regular tags, NRG can do it all.
So that is it for this time. I thank you all for the kind words regarding the awards so far. Keep them coming. Next up are the big ones for wrestlers and matches. Let me know any subjects you would like me to talk about on the first Keeping It Reel column.
Until next time... Keep It Reel.
I am saddened beyond words to hear of the death of my friend, Dwight Burcham.
Dwight was known in wrestling as Death Wish. He was a great person to be around. I went on numerous road trips to wrestling events with him, and we had great time. Truly a first class individual. He had a real sense of humor and unique ability to make us laugh.
You will be missed, Dwight. Rest in peace, and thanks for the memories. More importantly, thanks for your friendship.
The photo above is my granddaughter, Harley. I have been blessed way more than I ever could have imagined!
The opinions expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect the opinion of Wrestling News Center, the Webmaster, or anyone else connected with this site.
First of all, and most important, happy birthday to... me! Yes, my friends, I am another year older, 60 years old to be exact! OMG, where did the time go?!
Oh well, on to other matters....
I was able to go see the EPW show in Booneville, MS, Saturday night, and what a show it was! The arena was packed out. As usual, Hollywood was up to no good, but Bonecrusher managed to humiliate Hollywood in the end. Hollywood was so mad he later challenged Bonecrusher to a loser leaves town match for next week. Hollywood said he is bringing in a wrestling legend who has never wrestled in Booneville before, and he will face Cassanova Kid, who will be managed by Bonecrusher. If Hollywood's wrestler loses, Hollywood must leave EPW. However, Bonecrusher could also be the one leaving EPW if Kid loses. Hollywood also announced that the special guest referee for the match will be none other than former WWE star and wrestling legend Downtown Bruno.
Hollywood had the following to say on Facebook"
"Bone Crusher is GONE from EPW after next week...I'm bringing somebody who hates EPW, They hate Bone Crusher, They Hate Edith Poole..They hate Grady Watson...They Hate Cassanova Kidd..I called him tonight and told him how I was treated by EPW ...he's pissed off just like me...He's never been to EPW and he's been arrested for slapping fans....next week...I'm bringing a bad ass to ePW and Bonecrusher will have to leave EPW after my man destroys his son."
Who will be leaving EPW, Hollywood or Bonecrusher? This Saturday night at EPW promises to be a wild and crazy night - wish I could be there.
I must compliment the EPW crew on the work that has been done to the EPW building. It looks great!
OK, this is a wrestling column, so now that I have talked about wrestling.... to change the subject, as a public service, I want to pass on several short management lessons to all my readers. I will include one lesson in this column, and one in the next four columns. Here is the first lesson:
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg... The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.' Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek. Further up, you will find glory.'
The moral of this story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
And now I leave you with my philosophy on getting old:
I CAN'T QUIT NOW!
I once thought I was invincible,
that nothing could ever stop me.
I once thought I was king of the world,
and nobody could ever top me.
I once thought I was immortal,
that I would live forever.
I thought I had it all figured out,
I was bright, and smart, and clever.
And now I find those thoughts of mine
are growing rather cold.
No matter how hard I resist, my friends,
I'm really getting old.
No longer am I invincible,
I'm smarter than that now.
I will never be king of the world,
I figured that out somehow.
Immortality has eluded me,
there's nothing I can do.
All the things I had figured out,
I mostly figured wrong, too.
When I look back upon my youth,
the mistakes of my past,
It's hard for me to understand
how I made it this far, this fast.
But I'm not finished yet, my friend,
I have more races to run.
No, I can't quit running now,
'cause I'm still havin' fun!
