TNA has revamped the Impact! Zone for tonight’s Genesis pay-per-view
A traditional four-sided ring has been placed alongside a ramp set up all the way from the stage to the ring, similar to how WCW and ECW formerly presented themselves on some pay-per-view events.
Furthermore, there are reports of some fans chanting “We want six sides” live in the building.
– Reaction among wrestlers to the company’s decision to replace the six-sided ring with a traditional ring is said to be mixed. None of the workers were informed of the change before they arrived to the building for tonight’s show, so there was much shock upon arrival.
The decision to get rid of TNA’s former trademark was made by both Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff. At one point, there were plans for Hogan to take part in angle where he would destroy the six-sided ring on iMPACT!, but there was concern it wouldn’t get over with the fans and thus was dropped.
