TNA officially announced today that they are drastically changing their pay-per-view model this year. The company will produce four major live pay-per-views in 2013: Genesis on January 13th, Lockdown on March 10th, Slammiversary on June 9th and Bound For Glory on October 13th.
In addition, TNA will broadcast seven pay-per-view specials titled TNA Wrestling: One Night Only, which will debut in April and will air during the months with no major pay-per-views. The first two specials will feature the X-Division and are titled Joker's Wild Tag Team Tournament and X-travaganza, respectively.
"The Pay-Per-View industry has changed so much in the last decade," TNA President Dixie Carter said. "The traditional pay-per-view wrestling model needed to evolve and we believe this strategy will positively impact not only the Pay-Per-View events but the weekly television programming as well."
The new pay-per-view schedule will not affect Impact Wrestling programming on Spike TV. The company will also continue to produce the Unfinished Business series on a Video on Demand basis.
