As noted, changes are being made within Impact Wrestling as Don Callis and Scott D’Amore have taken over as the new Creative Executives in the company, and one of the changes is the scrapping of the six-sided ring in favor of the traditional four-sided ring.

Another change taking place is that Impact will be doing away with the concept of judges and rounds for Impact Grand Championship matches. The Grand Title bouts will now be contested under normal pro wrestling rules.
