TNA Wrestling is back and the company is wasting no time in improving its global reach by signing a huge new deal for Africa.

A press release issued by the company has touted a new deal that brings TNA programming to StarTimes which will make IMPACT and PPVs available to over 45 million viewers in Africa:

TORONTO (January 15, 2024) TNA Wrestling (formerly IMPACT Wrestling)—a subsidiary of Anthem Sports & Entertainment and a division of Anthem Sports Group— announced today a partnership with global entertainment platform StarTimes, bringing exclusive TNA content to more than 30 countries throughout Africa in January 2024.

The agreement further extends TNA’s reach, making the world-class wrestling organization’s flagship weekly series TNA IMPACT! widely available to over 45 million users in locations such as Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa and the Ivory Coast, among many others. As part of the deal, StarTimes viewers will also be able to enjoy exclusive TNA+ specials and hard-hitting Pay-Per-View events, including landmark spectacles such as Bound For Glory.

Since its inception in 2002, TNA has established itself as one of the largest professional wrestling organizations in the world, and the premier destination for wrestling fans. Fueled by blockbuster stories, marquee matchups and larger-than-life personas, TNA’s roster puts the spotlight on some of the industry’s brightest stars, boasting international talent that includes Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Eric Young, Eddie Edwards, Moose, Josh Alexander, Jordynne Grace, Gisele Shaw, Frankie Kazarian and more.

“Africa has long-boasted a passionate wrestling audience, who have warmly embraced our programming and our athletes,” said TNA Wrestling President Scott D’Amore. “We are proud to partner with StarTimes to bring exclusive TNA content to subscribers throughout the continent, and we hope they will enjoy the exciting plans we have in store for what promises to be one of our biggest years yet!”

Nic Nemeth Makes Huge TNA Debut

Hard To Kill was the first show under the TNA banner again and it ended with a huge bang. Moose defeated Alex Shelley to win the TNA World Championship in the main event but there was more to come. Former WWE star Nic Nemeth shocked the crowd by taking out Moose and he has now been added to TNA’s roster.

The former Dolph Ziggler had also made waves at Wrestle Kingdom for New Japan Pro Wrestling where he was involved in a wild brawl with the new IWGP Global Champion David Finlay.
