TNA “Open Fight Night” Details

Impact Wrestling Open Fight Night

Hulk Hogan made a “major announcement” on this week’s Impact Wrestling regarding some unique format changes to TNA’s flagship show.

Impact Wrestling will hold “Open Fight Night” once per month,where anyone on the roster can challenge anyone to fight.

The monthly Open Fight Night shows will also feature one of TNA’s champions defending their titles – as well as a new Gut Check segment – where a wrestler not affiliated with TNA gets a chance to earn a contract with Impact Wrestling. Based on the non-affiliated wrestler’s performance, three judges (including Hogan) will decide whether he or she receives a contract.

      Oh TNA…

      While I agree with Hogan that Impact needs to be taken live, I find it funny that Dixie Carter et al. cite ‘cost’ as an obstacle in taking the show on the road.

      Seriosuly? You can give Hogan, Sting, Flair etc. a crap-tonne of cash (even though their presence does nothing for ratings), but you say it’s ‘expensive’ to improve the show’s format?

      Also, I agree with Scott Steiner’s latest tirade; the ‘open fight night’ thing is just another silly gimmick that will only devalue the championships (seriously, an outsider can challenge for the WORLD TITLE if they want to?). This thing reeks of the hugely successful (sarcasm!) ‘Top 10 Rankings’ that were rigged from the start.

      Oh, and one more thing…if RVD ends Bobby Roode’s title reign at Sacrifice…I swear to god…

        Yeah, still not fixed yet.. As you can see – we’re working on it!

    • Kandi Roth

       Brock’s contract did not get signed. Why is that?

      • Th_Mssngr

        It did get signed. He signed it, and then Cena signed it when he came out.

    • B-ri

      edge can cut a promo like noones business i also noticed how lesnar was fumbling through his last night i thought that was a bad move seeing as how lesnar is over with the fans and cena isnt i dont know where there taking this storyline but they need to be decisive 

    • Wrestlehead

      With all due respect to those who run 24wrestling, I’m not sure exactly what people were working on all this time.  This is the exact same problem that existed before the comments section was shut down, whereby the same thread shows for all stories.

      • http://www.sescoops.com/ Mr 561

        We’re still trying to fix the problem .. We made the comments “live” again to see if the changes worked – which they didn’t .. Still working on it.

    • RUFFNECK

      TNA NEEDS TO GET RID OF HULK, ERIC, RIC, THAT WOULD SOLVE 90% OF TNA ISSUES. ALSO BRING BACK THE 6 SIDED RING, FOCUS MORE ON THE X-DIVISION, BRING IN NEW KNOCKOUTS NEW STARS. BRING BACK QUEEN OF THE CAGE, SIX SIDES OF STEEL, KING OF THE MOUNTAIN. MAKE AJ STYLES THE FACE OF THE COMPANY. CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE ROPES. DONT USE BLUE, RED, WHITE, USE PURPLE, GREEN, BLACK,A COLOR THAT WWE IS NOT USING AT ALL.MAKE A NEW 2 HOUR WEEKLY SHOW, HAVE ONE LIVE AND THE OTHER TAPED. ONE ON TUESDAY AND THE OTHER ON THUSDAY. IGOT MORE I WILL END MY RANT FOR NOW
