t.n. a news and history .

-sad to see a wrestling company i have watched from the beginning no longer  going to be on british television and looks like going the same fate as wcw and  only wwe to watch ,i shall miss it .We know that many TNA fans will be disappointed to hear this, but we wanted to let you all know that as of January 2017, Challenge will no longer be the home of TNA in the UK. TNA has been a huge and important part of Challenge’s story over the years and we will treasure some great moments like the British Bootcamp and UK tours. We have been proud to bring UK viewers coverage of TNA and have huge respect for the company and its fans. TNA is packed with great talent and we know they will continue to do great things – we wish them all the best.                                                                        The history of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling dates back to the early 2002 when it was founded by Jeff and Jerry Jarrett in May 2002 as NWA:Total Nonstop Action (NWA-TNA). It underwent name a name change from NWA-TNA due to a working relationship with the National Wrestling Alliance to Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in 2007 when TNA and the NWA ending their working relationship.
TNA is the second largest professional wrestling company in the United States.[1] It has promoted some of the most successful wrestlers and storylines, and featured some of the most iconic and significant matches and moments in the history of the professional wrestling. TNA currently airs several programs such as Impact Wrestling and TNA Xplosion in more than 20 countries, hosting pay-per-view events yearly including Bound for Glory the company's biggest event of the year.The concept of TNA originated shortly after World Championship Wrestling (WCW) ended in 2001. Bob Ryder, Jeff Jarrett, and Jerry Jarrett went on a fishing trip and contemplated their futures in the sport of wrestling.[2] Only one wrestling product remained on U.S. national television: theWorld Wrestling Federation (WWF). Ryder felt[2] that this situation led many television stations to regard wrestling as bad for business; he suggested a company not reliant on television, but rather one going straight to pay-per-view.
The Jarretts found the financial backing they needed, and the company put on its first show on June 19, 2002. That night, however, in a dark match just before they went on the air, a 450 lb wrestler named Cheex hit the ropes with so much force that one of them broke. The estimated repair time was 30–60 minutes, which they did not have because the schedule called for them to go live in a few minutes, whether the ring was ready or not. Backstage, the producers shuffled the schedule so that some non-wrestling segments went first to give the ring crew some more time, but they did not have many of them. The ring crew fixed the rope with the help of Ron and Don Harris, and everyone went live hoping for the best.[2]
Initially, TNA's weekly pay-per-view show operated as the company's main source of revenue, in place of monthly pay-per-view events used by other promotions. These shows started on June 19, 2002, and took place mostly at the Tennessee State Fairground Sports Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, nicknamed the TNA Asylum. After 27 months and 111 PPVs, TNA began[3] holding a weekly television show and monthly three-hour pay-per-views. The last weekly PPV took place on September 8, 2004. TNA Xplosion launched on November 27, 2002 as TNA's first regular cable show and featured exclusive matches from the TNA Asylum as well as exclusive interviews with TNA Wrestlers. On November 18, 2004, the show became a recap show of the previous week's Impact! in light of alterations in the taping schedule. Xplosion resumed airing exclusive matches (billed as "Xplosion Xclusives") once more on October 7, 2005 in addition to recapping Impact!. The "Xplosion Xclusives" also aired on the now-ceased TNA Global Impact! internet show. Airing of Xplosion in the United States ceased at the end of 2006, although some of the exclusive matches can be seen on TNA Today.read more -wiki link
