With the debut of Impact, TNA Wrestling also introduced fans to their signature six-sided ring.

TNA tapes its first-ever episodes of Impact from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

It was the company’s first national broadcast TV deal, as TNA had been a weekly, PPV-only promotion up to that point. Prior to the Fox Sports deal, fans had to pay $9.99 a week for their two-hour show.

The debut of Impact also introduced TNA’s six-sided ring to the mainstream American wrestling audience. An additional set of rules which would apply for matches on Impact, featuring a 10-minute time limit for a standard match and 30 minutes for title bouts. There were NO draws… three judges at ringside would render a decision.
