After completing a tour of the United Kingdom this week that will see them tape television for February, TNA returns to the United States for dates starting February 12th in some familiar surroundings.
Yep, that's right. Impact is returning to the Impact Zone!
Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida will be the location for much of the company's Spring 2015 filiming. Starting with a TV taping on Thursday, February 12th, TNA will be at the theme park for five straight days (the 13 - 16 will see them shoot One Night Only pay-per-view (PPV) specials). Entrance to the wrestling show is free on a first-come, first-served basis for fans who have paid to enter the park.
In March (13 - 16) and April (23-25) TNA will again use the venue to film footage for their Destination America show that airs Friday nights at 9PM.
This could be a mixed bag of news for Dixie Carter's company. Florida is definitely cheaper than the New York and overseas venues they've used extensively lately, and should guarantee a packed house as opposed to the cheaper alternatives they've tried like Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. A packed house full of semi-interested tourists looking to beat the heat in between meeting Optimus Prime and heading to Hogwarts hasn't always been in their best interest either, though.
I just hope that some of their 'reality' segments include Abyss riding The Simpsons roller coaster and Samuel Shaw learning Boris Karloff make-up secrets.

What do you think of the move, Cagesiders? Will you return with TNA to the Impact Zone?
