There was once a time when WWE wouldn’t dare mention or acknowledge TNA on their own programming, but times have certainly changed.
The company recently licensed footage from Impact Wrestling for the new Hardy Boyz DVD, and this week footage from AJ Styles and Kurt Angle’s TNA days aired on the WWE Network.
A new episode of Table For 3 recently premiered on the WWE Network, and the episode puts Shane McMahon, Kurt Angle and AJ Styles in the spotlight.
Not only does the episode feature footage of Kurt Angle and AJ Styles wrestling in TNA, but WWE also plugged Impact’s Global Wrestling Network.

It’s safe to say that fans never thought they would see WWE promote Impact on their own network, but it looks like this is just another scenario that proves you can never say never in the world of professional wrestling.
