TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Nov 28, 2015


Welcome to TNAMecca Presents CHAT!  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 during the weekends via CHAT. Anything goes in CHAT but we do ask that most topics remain TNA-related. You can also discuss any rumors from any source whose reports are permitted here. However, the same etiquette rules that apply to our comments section in general also will apply here, including our policy on spoilers.

Impact Live Discussion for Nov 25, 2015


Many wrestling fans enjoy participating in fun discussions during Impact every week, whether it's on social media or wrestling sites. However, it's getting increasingly harder to find places 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 share their opinions with other fans during the show.  You can now visit TNAMecca to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every Wednesday afternoon at 12PM EST. We feel that Wednesday nights will be a must-watch night of television and we're confident that TNAMecca will be the place to be for real wrestling fans. So make sure you join us every Wednesday afternoon at 12PM EST for our live Impact discussion.

TNA Randomania - Nov 24, 2015


It's been several days since the announcement of the TV deal with Pop and now that the excitement has settled down a bit, I wanted to take a moment to discuss the biggest pro of this deal, and that's Pop's reach nationally compared to Destination America's. Pop reaches 80+ million households and by March of 2016, the network will be available in approximately 85 million homes. DestAm's reach is approximately 57 million households - a difference of approximately 25 million homes. But it's important to note that the difference is much bigger, and I'll tell you why. Pop is part of your basic cable package so you either have the channel or you don't. 80+ million homes have and can access Pop.  DestAm, however, may be available in 57 million homes but it is accessible to many of whom who must opt to upgrade their cable package for an additional fee per month. Now the question becomes how many homes had access to Destination America, and although we're not privy to that sort of information, someone who works in the cable industry estimated that that number could be as low as 30 million. So essentially, you have a situation where Impact's reach could conceivably improve by 50 million homes on January 5th. That's a lot of viewers.

TNA to Air Impact Wrestling on Pop in 2016!


Immediately following last night's Impact, TNA's social media accounts, including those of Dixie Carter and John Gaburick, went dark. TNA's official site went dark moments later, however, a countdown clock began and set for early this morning. What could this countdown mean and what was the significance of the blackout on Twitter and Facebook? Well, we can now report that TNA has agreed to a deal with Pop to air Impact in 2016 with the premiere airing live on Tuesday, January 5th. Click here to read the full press release by Pop.

Welcome to the Off-Season


It's been a while since you've heard from me.  I won't make any apologies for my absence because some of it was out of my control (without boring you with unnecessary details).  Some of it, however, was within my control and, like I mentioned recently in the comments section, I simply have not been inspired enough by TNA to write a column.  We are in the middle of a long, drawn-out World Title Series that was taped back in July of this year.  When you have 5 months of programming in the can that has been slowly released week after week, emanating from the same old Impact Zone, it does naturally cause some apathy from the loyal fan base.  There is no way to sugarcoat it.  I'm not going to bullshit you because that is not my style.  We are now in the pro-wrestling version of an off-season for Impact Wrestling.  Yes, there are new episodes being shown on a weekly basis.  Yes, in some ways this big tourney is innovative and showcases good to above average wrestling matches.  That being said, you can't honestly tell me that TNA is in a great spot right now.  The future is promising for days ahead when the India and U.K. shows are filmed, but right now this is a low-point that I have not personally witnessed as a TNA fan.  Some of you will bristle as you read those words but welcome to reality.  You can't just make up some fictitious parallel universe about the current affairs of TNA that would paint the picture that everything is rainbows, sunshine and puppy dogs.  Like I said, there are much better times to come but for the first time in a long time, watching Impact has slid down on my priority list of entertainment options.

TNAMecca Exclusive: Q&A with TJ Perkins


Recently, TNA fans began to protest TNA's decision to force TJ Perkins to put the Manik mask back on after unmasking him on a recent episode of Impact. I reached out to TJ in the hopes that he could answer some questions about the #TJPMovement and how it came about, and I'm happy to report that he accepted. Below is our exchange:

The Other Side of the Squared Circle - Oct 28, 2015

Ding Ding! Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to another edition of The Other Side of the Squared Circle, where we love wrestling more then the Meccanites despise Grado. I hope everyone has had a safe and enjoyable Halloween, and the little ones haven't driven you insane due to the sugar rush they are experiencing. If this edition is not up precisely on time, I do apologize since my internet had temporarily been down and just recently got restored.
