Tune in and countdown with TNA

17 Jan 2014

TNA wrestling fans – tune in to Challenge to watch a new and exclusive wrestling programme, TNA Presents: Countdown to the UK Tour.

Two special episodes will air over the next two weeks, taking fans backstage as the superstars of TNA prepare for one of the highlights of the wrestling year, the TNA MAXIMUM IMPACT Tour, which comes to Phones 4u Arena Manchester on Friday 31 January.

Hosted by Jeremy Borash and Christy Hemme, the first episode will premiere on Challenge at 10am on Saturday 18 January and you can catch the second on Saturday 25 January.

The first episode sees TNA superstars including World Heavyweight Champion Magnus, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Chris Sabin and the TNA Knockouts reliving their favourite memories of wrestling in the UK and Ireland. It also features footage from the recent TNA Christmas Party in London with Magnus, Rockstar Spud, Jeremy Borash and 500 rowdy fans.

The second episode includes exclusive footage of Magnus making his first public appearance in London, the day after he became the first ever British World Heavyweight Champion for a major American wrestling group.

TNA President Dixie Carter said:

“The fans in the UK and Ireland bring an incredible energy and we are delighted to be broadcasting a total of SIX episodes of IMPACT and one Pay-Per-View event on our upcoming tour. For the first time ever an episode of IMPACT will air on Challenge in the UK and Ireland before it airs in the US, a remarkable milestone for our company.

“These two must-see Countdown to the UK Tour shows will heighten the anticipation of our arrival later this month.”

Challenge Director Stephen Ladlow added: “…Packed with thrilling jaw-dropping action, and broadcast on Challenge throughout February, the UK Tour is a must-watch for fans and viewers alike.”

Episode 1 will be repeated on Challenge at 8.30pm on Sunday January 19, just before flagship TNA show IMPACT WRESTLING, and again at 1am on Tuesday 21 January.  Episode 2 will be repeated at 8.30pm on Sunday 26 January and at 1am on Tuesday 28 January.
