The new President of TNA Wrestling Billy Corgan is making some interesting changes. On August 13th at the Impact Wrestling taping he introduced a newly created championship belt which will be called the TNA Grand Championship.
The belt will be defended with similar rules to MMA, for example rounds will be implemented and judges will be at ringside watching in case the match goes the distance. A tournament will determine the first champion.
It should be noted that TNA Wrestling retired the King of the Mountain Championship.
You can check the tweet below.
So this is the NEW IMPACT Grand champion belt (replacing the KOTM title-wtf) matches will have mma style rules :/ pic.twitter.com/V1ILoQgAld
