TNA Impact Wrestling comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Oct. 18, 2012) from the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida, featuring all the fallout from the Bound for Glory pay-per-view (PPV) that went down this past Sunday night in Phoenix, AZ.
Traditionally, this is the biggest free show of the year. The ratings are usually high and most of the major angles are shot on this particular show.
To that end, all the new champions -- Tara, Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez, Rob Van Dam, and Jeff Hardy -- are scheduled to make appearances, as is Aces and Eights now that they've got the run of the place again.
Thanks to the two-timer Devon, who will also be there.
Plus, TNA is advertising news on the upcoming Turning Point PPV scheduled for Nov. 11, just over three weeks away.
It all goes down tonight starting at 8 p.m. ET on Spike TV so remember to check back right here to follow along with the live blog as it all goes down.
