TNA issued the following press release to promote the Apocalypto edition of Impact Wrestling, which airs on December 15.
What started with “The Final Deletion” and evolved to “Delete or Decay,” and most recently “The Great War,” at Bound for Glory, something special has been happening on IMPACT Wrestling from the Broken Brilliance of Matt Hardy. Now, on December 15, 2016, from Cameron, NC at The Hardy Compound, the world will witness “Total Non-Stop Deletion!” This groundbreaking night will continue to advance the presentation of not just IMPACT on Pop, but professional wrestling as a whole, taking our sport and genre to new levels.
If you thought the past ventures to The Hardy Compound and House Hardy were cataclysmic, you will not want to miss “Total Non-Stop Deletion.”
For the first time ever, the entire broadcast of IMPACT on Pop will be shot on location, and will feature your favorite stars from IMPACT Wrestling. In addition, a spectacle unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, “Apocalypto,” will be unveiled when Matt and Jeff Hardy defend their World Tag Team Titles in a revolutionary match.
This odyssey will take you on an adventure into a new dimension of the most innovative two hours of IMPACT ever. IMPACT Wrestling’s “Total Non-Stop Deletion,” presented by “The Greatest Tag Team In All of Space and Time,” Matt and Jeff Hardy, will air December 15, 2016 from Cameron, NC on Pop at 8PM EST/7PM CST.
Powell’s POV: It’s a bold move for TNA and the Hardys. While I believe it can improve the weekly rating, there’s also the risk of overexposure of the great Broken Matt and Brother Nero characters. That said, they have done a really nice job of finding the right mix thus far and haven’t delivered a clunker yet, so they’ve earned some faith in that regard.
