In an update on the TNA World X-Cup tournament date, TNA have officially sent word via their mobile service that the special will begin in July.

For those unfamiliar, the concept was used throughout the early years of TNA and involves teams of wrestlers from all over the world battling it out for points and/or knockout positions, with the winning country's team getting a nice big trophy.

Teams in the past have included Team Canada, UK, Mexico and Japan - with standout stars from all countries competing in a variety of singles and tag matches.

I am not entirely sure of how the system and rules will work this time as it has never been consistent, but knowing TNA they'll find a way to make it complicated.

TNA plugged wrestlers from Dragon Gate, New Japan and CMLL will be appearing.
