'TNA IMPACT Wrestling' - which airs on Challenge TV on Virgin, Freeview and Sky - is to record its first ever international pay-per-view events in the UK in January and February 2014.

The grappling company will film 'TNA One Night Only: British Empire Cup at the Manchester Phones 4U Arena on Friday January 31, followed by 'TNA One Night Only: Joker's Wild 2' at the Birmingham NIA on Sunday February 2.

The two events - part of the 'TNA MAXIMUM IMPACT VI Tour' - are the first PPV shows to be held outside of the US and will be broadcast around the world later in 2014.

It had been previously announced that TNA's weekly TV show 'IMPACT Wrestling' will be broadcast live from Glasgow's new Hydro Arena on Thursday January 30, followed by a TV taping at London's Wembley Arena, London, on Saturday February 1.

TNA President Dixie Carter said: ''Along with the 'TNA IMPACT Wrestling' superstars and staff, I am ecstatic to again experience the unparalleled passion and energy of our fans in the UK.

''For the first time in our company's history we have the pleasure of showcasing the incredible UK fans to the rest of the world through four individual broadcast events planned during the tour.''

The 'British Empire Cup' will see seven TNA superstars and an eighth competitor - the winner of a battle royal featuring British and international stars - compete in a knockout competition to win the tournament, which will then be defended each year on TNA's UK Tours.

A star-studded line-up of wrestlers have been announced for the tour, including former Olympic Gold Medallist Kurt Angle, Bully Ray, Magnus, Bobby Roode, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries and Brooke.

Tickets for the TV tapings are available from Gigsandtours.com, Ticketmaster.co.uk, Facebook.com/tnawrestlinguk
