ORIGINAL: TNA iMPACT! will be taped for the first time in North Carolina next month. The two locations being discussed are Fayetteville NC, and Charlotte, NC. There has been talk for a while about taking iMPACT! out of Orlando to test how the product would do in front of a fresh audience.
There has only been one episode of iMPACT! taped outside of Orlando, and that was the live special from the Hard Rock Café. That show featured Mick Foley and the debut of the Main Event Mafia.
The move to North Carolina would be a test to see how the tapings do outside of Orlando, but they would also still tape in the Impact Zone, since they lease the building from Universal Studios.
UPDATE: Dixie Carter posted the following on her Twitter... Excited to announce that TNA is taking 'iMPACT!' on the road to Fayetteville, NC on 2/24. More details soon at www.tnawrestling.com
Also, they have canceled the show scheduled for Thursday, February 24 at the Bill Ellis Convention Center in Wilson, North Carolina. Refunds will be available at point of sale.
