FORMER WORLD CHAMPIONS RAVEN AND SHANE DOUGLAS RETURN TO THE ‘iMPACT ZONE’ AND A BRAND NEW KNOCKOUT CROSSES THE LINE TO TNA WRESTLING TONIGHT AT 9PM ET/PT ON SPIKE
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 28 /PRNewswire/ — Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling’s “TNA iMPACT” will host three former world champions and crown a new leader of the Main Event Mafia this Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Spike.
Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion Raven and former World Champion Shane Douglas will both appear live in the “iMPACT Zone,” returning to TNA Wrestling tonight as the road to the Slammiversary 2009″ pay-per-view event unfolds. Former Women’s World Champion Lisa Marie, formerly Victoria, will shake up the TNA Knockouts division in her TNA Wrestling debut.
Raven is a multiple time TNA Champion and five-year veteran of TNA, having arrived shortly after the very beginning of TNA Wrestling. Douglas served as a jack-of-all-trades on “iMPACT,” both as a manager, wrestler and interviewer. Lisa Marie is a two-time Womens Champion.
TNA legend “The Icon” Sting will also take control of the Main Event Mafia, having pinned Kurt Angle in a four-way main event at TNA’s “Sacrifice” pay-per-view to become the new “Godfather” of the MEM. TNA World Heavyweight Champion and Executive Shareholder Mick Foley retained his title at “Sacrifice,” but will continue his bitter feud with TNA Founder Jeff Jarrett.
TNA will hold two qualifying matches for its five-man “King of the Mountain” ladder match at “Slammiversary.” Also on hand for “iMPACT” will be 22-time World Tag Team Champions Team 3D, who will award the winners of the Team 3D Tag Team Invitational, Beer Money, Inc.
