[TNA News] From TNAwrestling.com: TNA Wrestling is nearing completion of our brand-new 20,000 square foot TNA TV Studio near our headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee!

The studio will also house audio areas, a tape library, conference rooms as well as TNA’s growing Merchandise Department. For those that have been employed with TNA since the beginning in 2002, this new state-of-the-art Television Studio is certainly a major milestone for our company.
