At the TNA Impact taping last night in Orlando, the LAX entrance and the bleachers behind the Spanish announcing team have been eliminated. Seating behind Mike Tenay and Don West have also been eliminated. These are the beginning of a few changes to the Impact Zone at Universal Studios in preparation for TNA’s jump to HD broadcasting.
The first HD show will be held next Thursday night live at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The company will return to Orlando for TV tapings on October 27 and 28 and all changes are expected to be completed by then. One rumored change is that TNA will be removing the babyface entrance area/ramp.
These production changes to the Impact Zone is something that has needed to be done for years since new changes were implemented in October of 2005 when the company debuted on Spike TV. Hopefully the jump to HD and the face lift to the Impact Zone will freshen things up a bit.
