If the current taping line-up stays in tact, both TNA Wrestling and WWE will both be holding television tapings in Orlando, Florida next Tuesday night. WWE will be taping Smackdown and NXT at the Amway Center, while TNA will be holding tapings for iMPACT! at Universal Studios. In the past, TNA had rescheduled tapings to avoid going head-to-head with WWE on the same night in Orlando. However, considering that the taping is less than one week away, that looks to be unlikely at this point in time.
Speaking of TNA, the company has issued a request to trademark the term “iMPACT! Wrestling,” according to the latest issue of the The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. As we’ve reported previously, this looks to be part of their marketing strategy of starting to use the name of their flagship television program instead of the name of their company.
