Note: TNA fans in the Orlando area – see TNA live at Universal Studios this Monday and Tuesday, January 21 and 22 for the “iMPACT!” on SpikeTV tapings. Visit the Live Events area on the website for details on how you can attend.

On Thursday night, TNA Wrestling returns to SpikeTV for two hours of Total Nonstop Action as we count down the days until the February 10 “Against All Odds” Pay-Per-View event from Greenville, South Carolina.

The below is a preview of what to expect on the broadcast:

– The big news going into Thursday’s “iMPACT!” is that TNA management isn’t pleased with the fact that Samoa Joe was disqualified from the three-way main event this past week involving Christian Cage vs. AJ Styles vs. Joe. TNA management feels Joe has a legit beef regarding the bogus disqualification. Not only that, but TNA management feels Jim Cornette should have reversed it on the spot! Rumor has it that if Cornette doesn’t address Joe’s disqualification this Thursday night on “iMPACT!”, there could be major ramifications concerning Cornette’s job status in TNA Wrestling!

– In addition, has learned that New Japan superstar Tiger Mask will return to “iMPACT!” this Thursday night for in-ring action! Tiger Mask last appeared in TNA in May and competed at the “Sacrifice” Pay-Per-View event, thrilling fans with his high-flying arsenal. Tune in this Thursday as Tiger Mask makes his return to the United States on SpikeTV!

– TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle will comment on his longtime rival Brock Lesnar entering the world of mixed martial arts, plus exclusive footage of Lesnar training for the upcoming bout.

– Also this Thursday night, Booker T is scheduled to return to the Impact Zone after what Robert Roode did to his wife Sharmell at the Final Resolution Pay-Per-View. The question is – what hell will Booker unleash on Roode? Tune in this Thursday night to find out!
