In a groundbreaking development for the world of professional wrestling, IMPACT Wrestling, soon to revert to its original name TNA Wrestling, has announced a significant partnership with Endeavor Streaming, a subsidiary of Endeavor, the parent company of WWE.

This collaboration marks a new era for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, as it prepares to launch a brand-new streaming service on January 5th 2024.

The Dawn of TNA+

TNA+, powered by Endeavor Streaming, promises to revolutionise how fans engage with wrestling content. The service will offer an enhanced user experience across various platforms, including mobile devices and connected TV apps like Android TV, Fire TV, and Roku.

This partnership leverages TNA’s expertise in wrestling promotion and Endeavor Streaming’s prowess in delivering direct-to-consumer digital services.

TNA Wrestling: Subscription Tiers and Content Offerings

TNA+ will feature two subscription tiers: the ‘Special Attraction’ and the ‘World Championship’ tiers. The former, priced at $9.99 monthly or $95.99 annually, includes access to the full TNA/IMPACT Wrestling library and special PPV programming, excluding the four major annual events.

The latter, at $219.99 per year, encompasses all ‘Special Attraction’ benefits plus the four tentpole PPV events.

A New Chapter for TNA

Scott D’Amore, President of TNA Wrestling, expressed enthusiasm about this venture, highlighting it as a significant step in TNA’s legacy.

The service aims to provide fans with an array of content, including weekly TV shows, pay-per-view events, exclusive original content, and interactive opportunities with the company’s stars.

Endeavor Streaming’s Role

Pete Bellamy, Chief Commercial Officer at Endeavor Streaming, emphasised the passion of wrestling fans and the potential of TNA+ to deepen TNA’s relationship with its global audience.

Endeavor’s experience with major sports organizations will be instrumental in scaling TNA+’s operations and expanding its digital revenue streams.

The Bigger Picture

This partnership comes in the wake of the merger of WWE and UFC into TKO Group Holdings, completed by Endeavor in September.

While Endeavor Streaming had previously taken over the technical operations of the WWE Network in 2019, the Endeavor Streaming relationship does not currently indicate any direct WWE crossover.

Considering that the company was the ONLY genuine competitor to WWE from the mid-2000s till the early 2010s, this is an absolutely surreal partnership.
