A vignette aired at the end of the Bound For Glory 2023 PPV, which revealed that IMPACT Wrestling is going back to being called TNA.

TNA Wrestling will return with the Hard To Kill pay-per-view on January 13th 2024.

Fans then raised an important question: Is the iconic 6-sided TNA ring returning as well?

The answer is no.

During an interview with Tom Hannifan, IMPACT Wrestling President Scott D’Amore explained why:

“The 6-sided ring question comes up all the time, I get it, I was in the ring when the 6-sided ring was brought in. I know it has its supporters. The fact is, at the end of the day, almost to a person, the athletes that have performed in the 6-sided ring don’t prefer it.

They say it’s harder on the body, it creates more injury, and more than injury, it creates more wear and tear on the body. Doing it night after night is harder on the body. We’re happy to have conversations about how to make the product look the best, but one of the things, unwaveringly, that we’re not willing to negotiate on or compromise is the athlete’s health and safety.

We’re going to be a 4-sided ring. I know that disappoints a lot of people, but my respectful and honest question to that is, ‘Do you really love the 6-sided ring more than you love ensuring the health and safety of the men and women who get in the ring and put their health on the line? Do you want to make a more dangerous situation for them?’

It’s wrestling, never say never, there could be changes in the future. It’s a simple one for us, athlete safety is number one, so we have four sides. Take that off the table and anything else is possible.

I know the fans have been waiting for a new set, and some have been waiting very patiently and some have been waiting a little less patiently than others, and it all comes from a point of passion. We’re hard at work designing a new look and new feel for TNA to both honor our history but also to be forward thinking and forward moving.”
