In a significant announcement made during Impact Wrestling's Bound for Glory event, it was revealed that the company would undergo a rebranding, returning to its original moniker, TNA Wrestling, starting in January 2024, with the transition officially commencing at the Hard to Kill event.

This decision, aimed at consolidating the company's rich history marked by various name changes, has ignited fervent discussions within the wrestling community. While the decision to revert to an older name has sparked mixed reactions from fans and pundits, one notable voice in support of the move is that of Matt Cardona.

He not only endorsed the announcement but also lauded the company's current direction. Cardona took to X (formerly Twitter) to express his views, stating, "TNA is going to be must-watch pro wrestling," and giving credit to Impact Wrestling for its outstanding television shows and the exceptional talent in its locker room.

Cardona's Impact Wrestling Future

It's worth noting that Cardona himself was part of the Bound for Glory event, participating in the Call Your Shot gauntlet match. Although he isn't currently under an official contract with the company, his post-WWE years have seen him frequently collaborating with Impact Wrestling, providing him with unique insights into the company's inner workings.

Whether Cardona will remain part of the roster when the rebrand takes effect next year remains to be seen. The return to the TNA name signifies a nostalgic revival for many fans who followed the promotion from 2004 to 2017 when it was known as TNA Wrestling before undergoing the rebrand to Impact Wrestling.

The company is wasting no time in promoting the new name, with TNA-branded t-shirts already available for eager fans looking forward to this exciting change. As this news reaches wrestling enthusiasts worldwide, it's clear that the wrestling landscape is in for a transformative period.

The decision to embrace its roots by adopting the TNA name once again has generated considerable buzz and anticipation. Impact Wrestling, now TNA Wrestling, appears poised to make a significant impact in the pro wrestling world, and fans and critics alike are eagerly awaiting what the future holds for this iconic promotion.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development as we approach the rebranding's official launch in January 2024.
