– TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter announced on her Twitter account this afternoon that iMPACT! will be held live on Thursday, October 7.

“TNA iMPACT! is going LIVE on 10/7. Remember my tweet about how TNA is going to change forever? Stay tuned,” Carter wrote.

As you can see, she did not indicate whether iMPACT! will be live on a permanent basis. She also did not say where the event will be held. iMPACT! television tapings are currently listed to take place Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays throughout the rest of the year.

Regarding her previous remark in regards to TNA ‘changing forever’, Carter wrote on June 11, “It’s 6:30 a.m. Been up for hours. So excited I can’t sleep. TNA’s about to change forever. Can’t wait to share it w/you, my staff, the talent.”

– Regarding former WWE Diva Katie Lea Burchill’s tryout match for TNA Wrestling last week, one observer dubbed her performance as “okay” and “nothing spectacular.” Meanwhile, talk amongst others within the company was more positive. No word yet on whether she will be offered a contract.

– Tonight’s episode of TNA ReACTION will feature a highly regarded segment on one of the company’s rising stars. “Watched a rough cut of this weeks ReAction. An amazing segment with one of TNA’s rising stars,” Eric Bischoff wrote on his Facebook page. “One of the best things I’ve seen in a long time. Check it out Thurs night right after iMPACT!”

– The reunion of “The Beautiful People” last Thursday on iMPACT! scored the program’s highest rated segment with a 1.15. Angelina Love caught wind of the news and thanked the fans for their support on her MySpace page, writing: “HUGE thanks to all the fans that watched TNA Impact last week and made the reuniting of the original Beautiful People the highest rated segment on the show!!!!”

– Since TNA iMPACT! will be pre-empted next week, TNA will be having a “Bound For Glory Kickoff Show” on their website. The webcast will be hosted by Jeremy Borash, & Dixie Carter will be answering questions from the audience. There will also be interviews with wrestlers that will appear on the Bound For Glory show, scheduled for October 10 in Daytona Beach, Florida.
