It’s official…the TNA name is dead, former WWE star makes his Impact Wrestling debut

UPDATE: The main event ended up with a Dusty finish. It appeared that Alberto won the title after ref bumps and after Alberto hit Lashley with the title belt. Bruce Prichard came out to argue about the finish of the match with other officials while Alberto walked out with the belt. So next week’s show will go off the air with Alberto thinking that he won the title but questions remain as to who is the real champion.

ORIGINAL: At Thursday night’s Impact Wrestling tapings, Bruce Prichard cut a promo in the ring and announced that the “TNA” name is dead. This is something that had been talked about for the last couple of weeks but it became “official” at the tapings. There were no signs of the “TNA” name at the tapings.

Prichard buried the old management and talked about making Impact great again. They want to “Make Impact Great Again” slogan as they continue to distance themselves from the old regime. He then introduced Bobby Lashley as the face of the company. He was interrupted by the debuting Alberto El Patron (Alberto Del Rio).

Alberto wants to challenge for the Impact Championship but EC3 came out demands a match because he feels that he has been carrying the company for the last few years. However, EC3’s concerns are ignored and Prichard books Alberto vs. Lashley for the title for later on in the show.

We will have more spoilers up shortly.
