TNA Wrestling Maximum Impact Tour 2011 in Lyon


After receiving several federations, for the first time Lyon hosted the second wrestling federation in the USA, the TNA.

The day started well. Fans were delighted to learn that thanks to the DVD release of Bound for Glory, three stars of the federations were signing autograph at Virgin Megastore in Lyon, including some important ones: Kurt Angle, Mickie James, Rob Van Dam.  Well for a first time, TNA didn’t do things by halves.
If I would like to take this opportunity to announce that we got an exclusive interview with Mickie James, let us talk about the show on January 21, 2011, at the Halle Tony Garnier.


Aside from Aj-styles, Samoa Joe, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bishop, Lyon’s residents could see the main TNA Stars. Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett, Matt and Jeff Hardy and Mr. R. Anderson. Nothing but great names, in fact!. Added to that the presence of Jeremy Borash and Earl Hebner, female wrestlers Madison Rayne, Angelina Love and Tara; we are pleasantly surprised with the roster for a house show. We won’t talk about the incident of the ropes falling apart which was resolved quickly, the Lyon’s residents were able to attend a good TNA show, a federation yet little known in France, which deserves more attention. In conclusion, we all could find the voice of TNA in France, Celian Varini, and yes, let’s trust him trust to promote this federation.


TNA has shown a good show as we would like to see more often in France, all that remains for us to do is to hope for a come back next year in Lyon, as you know, we like to cover events like this one.
