Shortly after debuting the new iMPACT Wrestling” brand it appears TNA Wrestling is set to debut a second brand soon called “All Wheels Wrestling”. A press release was issued earlier today stating the following:

It is recommended to arrive one hour prior to doors open. Video cameras and audio recording equipment is not allowed. Show may cancel and schedules and/or audience requirements may alter at any time.
A quick check of the whois for AllWheelsWrestling.com (which is not yet live) reveals the following:

The domain was registered in February as you can see above so this has been in the works for awhile contrary to some reports. Is this a completely different brand with new wrestlers, and storylines? Will this be a spinoff focusing on the X-Division? Maybe it’s a branding move to attract a channel such as SPEED? Lots of questions, very little answers. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
