Tonight, TNA presents Impact as the company begins to go live, on the road. The event takes place in Chicago, Illinois. The show will feature the fallout from Sunday’s 2013 Lockdown pay per view in addition to the television return of AJ Styles. The show will air on Spike TV.
Impact Wrestling is slowly becoming a more main stream show to the general audience. With the WWE always being the focal point how do you feel Impact Wrestling will be in 5 years and be comparable to the top company in professional wrestling?
It continues to grow no doubt worldwide. We are on the road for good and we are taking little steps to improve the overall product. I believe in 5 years if things are done right we could be competing with the monster (WWE). They have amazing programming and Vince McMahon has done wonders for his product. I have been in Impact Wrestling for 7 years and I thought by now we would be up in the ratings. I believe that’s going to take a little more time.
