Hulk Hogan made a “big announcement” at Tuesday’s iMPACT! Wrestling taping in Orlando, Florida (airing this Thursday on SPIKE TV). As Eric Bischoff promised last week on Twitter, the program will feature all-new elements.
iMPACT! Wrestling will hold “Open Fight Night” once per month as a wrestler not affiliated with TNA Wrestling will have the opportunity to earn a roster spot by competing in a match. Based on the non-affiliated wrestler’s performance, three judges (including Hogan) will decide whether he or she receives a contract.
During “Open Fight Night,” any TNA wrestler can challenge any wrestler on the roster, including champions. Those challenged must be ready to fight.
The Television Championship currently held by Devon will be defended every week on iMPACT! Wrestling.
