TNA Wrestling iMPACT Returns To Australia On FuelTV On Saturday, June 11
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling’s “TNA iMPACT!” comes to FUEL TV next month, after Australia’s only dedicated 24-hour action sports channel acquired the broadcast rights to “iMPACT!”
Previously broadcast on Fox 8, “TNA iMPACT!” will premiere on Saturday 11 June at 8.30pm AEST on FUEL TV.
TNA iMPACT! features the most innovative and exciting brand of professional wrestling in the world today, joining Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and “The Icon” Sting with the superstars of tomorrow; Rob Van Dam, Ken Anderson, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and many more. TNA Wrestling also features the lovely and lethal TNA Knockouts, and the no-limits, high-flying X-Division.
Adam Howarth, Fuel TV Australia Channel Manager, said TNA iMPACT! is a welcome addition to the channel’s ever-expanding action sports portfolio.
“We’re absolutely wrapt to be bringing iMPACT! to FUEL TV and building on our TNA wrestling offering for its legion of fans across the country,” said Howarth.
“Since April 2010 we’ve screened the classics series, TNA Epics, and now we’ve secured TNA’s most popular television series which is a massive win for fans. Now they’ll be able to tune into FUEL TV to get their total TNA fix,” he said.
“We’re glad to partner with FUEL to provide Australian wrestling fans with the best professional wrestling in the world today. Bringing “iMPACT!” to FUEL will allow TNA’s Australian fans a one-stop destination for programming,” TNA Executive Vice President Andy Barton said.
“Each episode of TNA iMPACT! will go to air on FUEL TV less than 48 hours after they debut in the U.S., so the turnaround on broadcasts will be fast and Australian fans will be able to keep pace with the series in America.”
Howarth said FUEL TV’s coverage of TNA iMPACT! will supplement FOXTEL and AUSTAR’s coverage of Pay-Per-View TNA events on the Main Event channel.
“If you are a fan of TNA then FOXTEL and AUSTAR are the only place you will be able to see TNA iMPACT! and the Pay-Per-View events.”
