TNA President Dixie Carter confirmed on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling that the show will go on the road "permanently" starting in March.
"For the past eight years, the most amazing wrestling fans in the world today have traveled from all over the world to come see us at Universal Studios in Orlando," Carter said on tonight's episode of Impact Wrestling. "Now, it's time for us to take the cameras to you.
"I'm so excited to announce that the television tapings for Impact are going on the road permanently, and we're going to do that starting March 14th when we go live from Chicago at the Sears Centre Arena. And we couldn't have done any of this without you. So from all of us at TNA, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything and for making Impact Wrestling a global success. And we will see you in your hometown very soon."
Carter added the following on ImpactWrestling.com: "This is a tremendous step forward for TNA... This is a very important next evolution for the company, and I'm excited that the backdrop to the show will feature our great fans in larger arenas around the country and world."
The final two episodes of Impact Wrestling to be filmed from Orlando will be on February 28 and March 7.
"We are so grateful to Universal for being such fantastic partners and look forward to finding other ways to work together in the future," Carter said.
