8am Saturday. Even last year when they did a matinee card and an evening card it was still 10 or 11am GMT it started. Still, if it's free to stream this year there'll probably be a free playback afterwards too.

Watching impact live from Glasgow, the hydro is PACKED. Interesting watching a show from a venue i've been in and also watching it live at a reasonable time.

Looks like the very top tier is curtained off but its rammed otherwise, I've also been in the Hydro and it really does look big time for TNA.

Yeah I think the top tier is curtained off but of the two times i've been there for alter bridge and black Sabbath I think the crowd tonight is between those 2, taking into accoun t less people on the floor, which is pretty impressive for TNA compared to the american crowds.

Damn I was at Alter Bridge too, but yeah, its gonna be a harsh reality when the diet of UK tapings runs out and they return to shows at a tiny soundstage. Pretty decent show so far though.

Luckily, not 8am on saturday.

About 6pm on a saturday, which is way more reasonable
