TNA Live! in NW Iowa

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

The superstars of television's Total Nonstop Action (TNA) will bring TNA Live! to the Clay County Regional Events Center on Saturday, March 28. Tickets go on sale today.

TNA is billed as an extreme and more physical form of professional wrestling, with the catch phrase "Cross the Line."

The company was founded by longtime wrestler Jeff Jarrett in 2002, who hatched the idea after pondering his future during a fishing trip. Nashville-based TNA stands as the sole nationally-televised challenger to Vince McMahon's WWE empire, and differs from other wrestling companies in that it uses a hexagon-shaped ring. Jarrett remains vice president of the company and recently returned to the roster as an active performer.
