Welcome to the 6th annual TNAsylum Year-End Awards celebrating the best (and worst) TNA had to offer in 2015. Voting opened at the beginning of December and have been collected. Its time to see who won the hearts of fans.
Happy Holidays everybody!
One Winter tradition TNA has had is their annual Feast or Fired Match. In this match, a variety of wrestlers try to climb one of four poles to grab a briefcase. Each briefcase contains something different. Three contain title shots (World Title, Tag Title and X Division Title) while one contain a pink slip. Usually the contents of the cases are revealed later that night. Much like Money in the Bank, the title shots can be used anytime within a year.
* According to InDemand, TNA will be airing a live One Night Only PPV on January 8th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The description reads: “It's a dawn of a new era, where anything can and will happen. For one night only, the stars of Impact Wrestling discover what 2016 has in store.”
One of the biggest disappointments for TNA in 2015 was their approach to Pay Per Views. Lockdown was shortened and moved to free television. Slammiversary was taped in the Impact Zone, spoiled ahead of time and made secondary to a Bell to Bell show days later. Bound For Glory had two weeks build and was used to kickstart a concept taped months before it aired. Let's not even talk about the One Night Only specials as those continue to be outdated by the time they air.
* Lockdown will take place on January 30th in London, England. Plus, TNA announced a Monster's Ball match in Manchester, and a King of the Mountain match in Birmingham. Read the press release here.
* PWInsider reports that Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have finished up with ROH and are heading to TNA. While nothing has been confirmed, Bennett and Kanellis were telling people that they will be starting with TNA in January.
