Total Nonstop Action, TNA, is a wrestling organization that was founded by Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Jarrett and Bob Ryder in 2002. When Vince McMahon purchased WCW in 2001, TNA hoped to become the first wrestling company to rise up. Alternatives were needed, the WCW buyout had left a huge gap in the market and also, a lot of guys needed work. The Jarretts were hopeful that TNA could fill the void, giving fans a new wrestling product while giving superstars a place to wrestle. It looked like the WWE was not going to be the only place to get some TV time afterall.
Thanks to a partnership with the National Wrestling Alliance, TNA was able to host NWA Championship matches on their weekly PPVs. The NWA was also a recognizable entity within the wrestling landscape, so the partnership benefited both TNA and the National Wrestling Landscape. TNA prospered with the NWA name being associated with the company, and the NWA could attempt to restore some of their past glory by exposing the NWA championship to wrestling audiences once again. The very first NWA-TNA show took place on June 18th 2006, and the main event would feature a unique NWA Heavyweight Championship match. This video looks at the entire show.

    I used to have most of these recorded on VHS, but my wife tossed them when we moved. Interesting time in wrestling . . .There ended up being a lot of stuff in TNA I liked though at times.

    I miss making the drive to Nashville every week. Check out NWA-TNA X Plosion. It was the show they broadcast locally around Tennessee before they went national. I would have archived every single match online but at the time, but there were no video hosting sites except for one that had a limit of about two matches at once. Also around that time, the company's web presence was run by fans. We would all communicate through a public message board. It was one of the coolest things ever that a lot of people missed out on. Hell, we got that thing off the ground though and it took off running. Talk about sick. Ever had a dog leave home and not come back? Well i guess that's what it felt like. #Wot?

    Great vid as usual. Just reading the comments, and do some people realise tna is still in existence? I know it's had name changes, but so has wwe,(WWF, wwwf, capitol sports etc), and it's the best wrestling show on tv at the moment I think. Anyway, sad to see the death of the man shown at the start of this, Bob Ryder, a founder of tna, who was still employed by the impact and the "life and soul" of the company.

    16:54 - early-00s NASCAR fan here: at the time this PPV aired Sterling Marlin was the top driver in NASCAR's top level of racing, then called the Winston Cup - in 2002 he held the series' points lead until around September, then suffered a broken neck in a crash a week or two after falling out of 1st; and while he did recover enough to return for 2003 his career was never the same, and he retired in 2009. Hermie Sadler... well, to be blunt he didn't have much success in NASCAR - in 66 career Cup Series starts over a span of 20 years his _best_ finish was 18th (in a series that ran 43 cars per race at the time), at a race held 2 months prior to this show. In fact over the course of his career he _failed to qualify_ for almost as many events as he actually ran in; 52 to 66.

    I enjoyed it. A good next one to do would be the one about a year later, definitely 2003, where they were still doing weekly ppv's and they actually built a big match up well, Jarrett vs Raven for the world title. I got it via tape trader at the time and remember it being overall the best show they'd run to that point. It's be interesting to see how it compares to the first one.

    Jeff jarret shoulda sat those main events out. they had some far better guys that coulda done better for the company. The money at this point would have been shamrock vs Scott hall. Yeah, Scott wasnt sticking around, that's why you get all you can out of him before wwe or his demons get his attention.

    X¬Division/Cruiserweight type matches used to be a Special thing. Still are, imo, when done right by the right people and not almost EVERYONE on a Roster. I could say the same for Announce Tables, Kendo Sticks, Ladders and Chairs, though.😅 OMG, that was Trevor Murdock??😮 Dude today (on NWA) looks like he aged 40yrs instead of 18.😬 TNA tried to cater to the Attitude Era fans. But they, like AEW today, just became another RAW 2.0. I'm cool w/ you doing more TNA based episodes. There's alot of History there i don't know about because i started watching TNA in 2009.😬
