'Global Impact 2' Premiere Thursday, October 8 at 11:00 PM, ET/PT

'Super iMPACT!' Premieres Thursday, October 15 Starting At 9:00 PM, ET/PT

NEW YORK, Oct. 6 -- Spike TV goes to the mat with Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling with two special programming events in October.

On Thursday, October 8 at 11:00 PM, ET/PT, immediately following the regular weekly telecast of TNA "iMPACT!," Spike will present "Global Impact 2," a one-hour special featuring an international showdown between TNA Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling from the world-famous Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan.

"Global Impact 2" matchups include "Main Event Mafia vs. New Japan Main Event" featuring Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash, Mashahiro Chono and Riki Choshu vs. Giant Bernard, Takashi Iizuka, Tomohiro Ishii and Karl Anderson; "IWGP Tag Team Championship Match" with Team 3D going up against Togi Makabe and Toru Yano and "IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Title Match" featuring the Motor City Machineguns vs. Yujiro and Tetsuya Naito.

The following week, on Thursday, October 15, Spike will present a three-hour (9:00 PM - Midnight, ET/PT) super-sized installment of "iMPACT!" as the superstars of TNA make their final preparations before TNA's "Bound For Glory" pay-per-view event taking place that weekend.

The main event on Spike that evening will feature two of the biggest stars in TNA, as "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles wrestles for the first time since becoming TNA World Champion in a Grudge Match against the leader of the Main Event Mafia, Kurt Angle. Also, "The Boss" Bobby Lashley takes on "The War Machine" Rhino in a Stretcher Match. "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan takes on Booker T. from the Main Event Mafia. "Super iMPACT!" will also give wrestling fans a behind-the-scenes look at some of the biggest stars in TNA as a preview of the AJ-Sting, Mick Foley-Abyss, Lashley-Samoa Joe and Matt Morgan-Kurt Angle matches at "Bound For Glory." Viewers will see the warriors away from the ring, training, with family, with unprecedented access.

"Cross The Line" to TNA Wrestling. TNA Wrestling is the most innovative experience in professional wrestling today. Join TNA World Heavyweight Champion "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, "The Boss" Bobby Lashley, Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle, "The Icon" Sting, Mick Foley, the lovely and lethal TNA Knockouts and the no-limits X-Division inside the six-sided ring of "TNA iMPACT!" every Thursday night (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) only on Spike TV.
