The Maximum Impact VI tour in 2014 has just got a whole lot more exciting! TNA Impact Wrestling will be taping two prestigious PPV events during their tour of the UK alongside the regular Impact Wrestling tapings in Glasgow and London!
On 31st January, Manchester Phones 4u Arena will play host to the British Empire Cup, a one-night tournament featuring eight of wrestling’s elite battling it out to win the cup. Seven Impact Wrestling stars will compete as well as one mystery competitor who will have to earn their way into the cup through a gauntlet battle royal. This will feature not only international stars but several familiar British faces too!
Then on 2nd February, TNA brings the Joker’s Wild 2 event to the Birmingham NIA. If you’ve never seen Joker’s Wild before, anything goes with the best of friends and the worst of enemies all forced to team together. A first round of tag team matches leads to a gauntlet battle royal for the victors, and one single winner will walk away with a £100,000 prize.
