TNA Impact - hands-on

Midway leads a wrestling revolution

Oct 16, 2007

Let’s face it, the WWE is essentially the evil empire of wrestling. Mr. McMahon and his genetic superfreaks will always stand atop the heap of sports entertainment destroying all comers like they did WCW and ECW. With an increasingly stale product and THQ’s SmackDown! franchise delivering the same thing year in and out, wrasslin’ fans need a savior. Start bracing for Impact - literally - because Midway is developingTNA Impactfor the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii, based off the relatively young (and more exciting) upstart company for release next spring.

If you didn’t get the memo,Total Nonstop Action(clever acronym) hit the scene about five years ago with weekly pay-per-views before nabbing their own two-hour show on cable and features exciting grapplers like AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels and Samoa Joe. If these names make you feel old, then know favorites like Jeff Jarrett, Kurt Angle, Sting, Kevin Nash, the Dudleys, Steiners, Christian and more have brought increased exposure to the unfortunately titled company (TNA? Really?) Also, with a six-sided ring, the wrestling is that much cooler.
