* PerkyGoth: Jeff Hardy and Daffney both wears corpse paint (and Jeff's fans are known as "Creatures of the Night"), but they're otherwise fun-loving and full of spirit, with Daffney deliriously screaming and laughing during her own matches and those of her friends.

* Dialing up the vulgarity in Wrestling/VinceRusso's attempt to attract more mature audiences than WWE. This was especially true during TNA's weekly pay per view period. The Fox Sports Net deal saw a family friend presentation emerge on the television program with the pay per views being not quite as over the top as before but still more hardcore than WWE's offerings. TNA dropped the family appeal after leaving Fox Sports Net but never went quite as far as the weekly pay per view raunchiness again.

In late June 2017, the company announced its acquisition of Global Force Wrestling, the company started by Jeff Jarrett after he left TNA, which they had done some crossovers with previously. Originally, the plan was for the combined company to adopt the GFW name for the promotion while keeping the ''Impact'' name for the TV series. However, following a series of backstage incidents, Jarrett would be placed on a "leave of absence" in September 2017, and the merger, which had never been fully completed at a legal level, was called off in October 2017, leaving the company with little more than some ugly title belts with GFW logos covered up by "Impact Wrestling" stickers, and the use of neon green as an accent color. By the beginning of 2018, Anthem would hire Don Callis (formerly known as the Jackal in the WWF and Cyrus the Virus in ECW) and Scott D'Amore, both of whom had worked for the company in the past, as the new co-Executive Vice Presidents in charge of day-to-day operations.

* Their on-and-off use of a six-sided ring. The company started in with a four-sided ring during their weekly PPV era, then began using the six-sided one when Impact premiered on Fox Sports Net in June 2004. The six sides stayed with the show when it moved to Spike, until the four-sided ring returned for the start of the Wrestling/HulkHogan era in January 2010. A (loaded) fan poll brought back the six sides in June 2014, but it was dropped in January 2018 at the first tapings of the year. On one hand, it was said to be give the company an distinct identity. On the other hand it was considered a cheesy gimmick and the wrestlers disliked it because geometry makes the ring inherently stiffer and it's not what they have trained in. Naturally, liberal amounts of TheyChangedItNowItSucks were have been allied with each change.
* Dialing up the edginess, in reaction to the WWE's LighterAndSofter approach post-Wrestling/AttitudeEra.

After the end of the Wrestling/MondayNightWars in 2001, there were no more companies that could compete with Wrestling/{{WWE}} on a national scale and the number of independent promotions grew dramatically. One of these was NWA: Total Nonstop Action, an affiliate of the Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance founded by Wrestling/JeffJarrett and his father Jerry in 2002.

''Impact Wrestling'' moved to Pop (formerly TVGN) in 2016. This was the final television deal for TNA as we knew it, while [[Music/TheSmashingPumpkins Billy Corgan]] took over the role as president from previous owner Dixie Carter with the intent to rebrand the company entirely. In reality, the latter turned out to be a move by Carter and co. to give Corgan power without actually giving him power and avoid selling him the company. As a result, Corgan ''sued his own company'', which would turn out to be the first in a long line of DisasterDominoes for TNA. While Corgan lost the case, this resulted in Carter selling majority ownership to Anthem Sports and Entertainment -- a Canadian media company who owned TNA's local broadcaster Fight Network. They formally announced ownership of the company on January 3, 2017. (Corgan eventually settled with Anthem, and would later [[http://www.denofgeek.com/us/culture/wrestling/264371/billy-corgan-reportedly-buys-nwa-the-national-wrestling-alliance purchase the]] Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance in May 2017.)

As of March 2017, the Total Nonstop Action name has been all but dropped. Outside of lingering uses of the TNA acronym, ''Impact Wrestling'' has become the name of the company. In an ironic twist of fate, [[http://www.prowrestlingsheet.com/impact-wrestling-uk-tv-deal/ the UK version of Spike TV will begin airing]] ''Impact'' starting April 21, 2017, with ''Xplosion'' moving exclusively to Creator/ChannelFive's VOD platform.

In late June 2017, the company completed its acquisition of Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling and adopted that name.

Anthem finally announced that [[https://www.f4wonline.com/tna-news/jeff-jarrett-officially-gone-impact-wrestling-245066 they had terminated the agreement with Jarrett and GFW]] on October 23, 2017.
