On behalf of everyone at TNAMecca, I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday. We wish you all a wonderful day with family and friends or simply doing what you love best. Due to there being no Post-Impact Discussion this week, we've decided to make available a special Thanksgiving thread for you to continue to discuss TNA or any other topic you'd like through the holiday and until Saturday Night Chat comes to you at 4:00 PM EST on Saturday. In addition, if you watched TNA's special Thanksgiving Throwdown, please feel free to share your thoughts on the show here.

Welcome everyone to episode five of Fans Talk TNA, which has been brought to you by TNAMecca and the Fans Talk Wrestling Podcast. Fans Talk TNA is a short, 15-minute conversation about what happened this week in TNA as well as what we can look forward to. Consider it your Impact Wrestling weekly pre-show available on demand every Wednesday.
TNA announced that the company will be taping the premiere episodes of Impact, to air on Destination America in January, at the Manhattan Center in New York City on January 7th through the 9th. This is another one of those much-anticipated announcements that TNA fans were waiting for. It's great to finally see that the company's back on track with their TV taping schedule. Click here to read the full press release.
Earlier this week, we asked our readers to come up with the categories for our first annual Best of TNA awards, and to all those who took the time do so, we thank you. It is now time to make your official nominations for each category. We have created a survey where you can make one nomination for each category. We ask that you carefully process each category and nominate whom you feel is the wrestler or character who's most deserving of your nomination. In addition, while completing the survey, we suggest you have the Impact Wrestling roster open for reference purposes. Once we've collected your nominations, the top three nominations in each category will then be placed in a poll to determine the winners via your votes. The deadline to complete your survey has now passed. We'd like to think all of those who have made their nominations.
- It's been quite a week for TNA fans and before I proceed with this week's Randomania, I would like to give kudos to the fans who visited TNAMecca on Wednesday and joined in on all the fun. It was a special day, made even more special by the fact that we got to enjoy the experience together. So...TNA finally announced a TV deal with Discovery's Destination America last Wednesday and I think for the most part fans were happy. I say 'for the most part' simply because there are some fans whose cable or satellite providers do not carry Destination America or they will have to upgrade to a higher tier package for an additional fee per month. I will not begrudge any fan who isn't willing to spend the money to upgrade but I hope they will because it will help TNA in the long run. I would encourage all TNA fans who have the option to upgrade, however, to at least look at their monthly budget and see if there's somewhere they can cut in order to fit in the extra $10 or $20 per month it will take to get Destination America. For those who are still uncertain whether or not they get Destination America, click here and simply enter your zip code and cable/satellite provider.

Disclaimer: Life would have been so much easier for TNA fans if this column and its content could've been written a month earlier as TNA's TV Deal announcement went right down to the wire with the final episode on Spike TV as they say. TNA fans endured a lot of crap from the people spewing "THE END IS NEAR FOR TNA FINALLY" (Now it's LOL TNA Lives but on a crappy network nobody watches so you should watch that Lucha Underground show, it is amazing) to our own doubts creeping into our heads that there is no TV deal coming but now that issue is all behind us and it is time to look to the future. A future for TNA that has not been this clear in three years in my humble opinion so let's get to it.

Welcome to Saturday Night Chat on TNAMecca! Although we aren't an open forum where members can start their own threads, our sense of community spirit is what sets us apart from other wrestling sites so we thought it'd be fun to give our members the ability to dictate the discussion for one night a week. Anything goes in Saturday Night Chat but we do ask that all topics remain TNA-related and stay on topic. You can also discuss any rumors from any source regardless of how ludicrous they might sound. However, the same etiquette rules that apply to our comments section in general also will apply here, including our policy on spoilers.

Dixie Carter announced yesterday that TNA has officially signed a new multi-year deal with Destination America, which is part of the Discovery family of networks. It's the announcement we've been waiting for for months so it was long overdue for so many anxious TNA fans. I think this is great news because TNA joins a company in Discovery that will open new doors for them in a way that SpikeTV couldn't.

One of my favorite activities after watching Impact is searching for forums in which fans can talk about the show and share with one another their thoughts. However, it's getting increasingly harder to find venues where TNA fans can safely express their opinions on Impact without having to deal with the trolling of the anti-TNA crowd or the smarks who insist on taking the fun out of pro wrestling.
For this reason, we felt it was important to make TNAMecca available to our readers and any TNA fans who would like to discuss the show after watching it. You can now visit TNAMecca immediately following Impact to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every week. So please feel free to share with us your thoughts on tonight's IMPACT from the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA. What did you think of the show? What did you like or dislike? Let us know.
