NWA Total Non-Stop action launches in a PPV-only format… airing every Wednesday night for two hours at $9.95.

The company would continue in this incarnation until June of 2004, when they launched their weekly television show, “Impact!”, originally aired on Fox Sports.  TNA’s weekly programming would move to SPIKE TV, and then Destination America, before eventually landing on the Pop! TV network.

15 years later, the company is still chugging along. They will celebrate at their annual event, “Slammiversary”, on July 2nd.
