It's a sad fact of our histories that we persecute those different than us. We shun, label and deny certain rights to people just because they believe in something we don't. We are lucky, however, to now live in an age where being different is not what it once was. We now live in a time that has proven that if you fight hard enough and make your voice heard loud enough, eventually people will have no choice but to listen.
The word impact is described as having a strong effect on someone or something. And for over a decade, making an impact has become a way of life for the athletes of IMPACT Wrestling.

* According to PWInsider, James Storm and Magnus are not under contract with TNA. Both men asked to be let out of their deals due to the fact that TNA runs less shows than they have in the past, meaning they are making less money. The current plan is to have both men work the TV tapings, while being able to find other work to supplement their TNA work.
* Austin Aries will see his contract expire after Slammiversary so he will be in the same situation as Storm and Magnus. Given the changing landscape of their business, TNA is adjusting their view on how they will promote themselves going forward. TNA is very open to working with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling.
