-With Thursday’s edition of TNA Impact Wrestling being a taped show, there are no new live shows for TNA until next week’s “Hardcore Justice” Impact Wrestling taping in Norfolk, Virginia.

Confirmed for the “Hardcore Justice” show is a rematch for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship between Chris Sabin and Bully Ray. The two will compete in a Steel Cage match. Also on the show, as announced on Impact Wrestling last Thursday night, is a five-on-five match with five members of the Aces & 8’s challenging five members of the Main Event Mafia, where the person who takes the pin must leave TNA for good.

With Kurt Angle currently in rehab, it will be interesting to see what TNA plans to do with the aforementioned five-on-five match. Certainly the original plans would have featured Angle, so we’ll see what TNA comes up with as far as the creative change in plans.

You can view a trailer for the next Impact Wrestling on Spike TV below:
