The shows – which will be broadcast on Challenge in the UK, Pop in the U.S. and more than 120 other countries – will be the last for wrestling legend Kurt Angle. TNA President Dixie Carter this week announced the opponents for Kurt’s ‘Farewell Tour’ bouts.

In Manchester, the Olympic Gold Medallist will face Britain’s Drew Galloway, while at London’s SSE Arena Wembley he will relive one of his greatest career rivalries – by taking on Bobby Roode for one final time. On the last night of the Tour, in Birmingham, Kurt will battle Lashley in a rematch of the one of the best bouts to ever take place on UK soil.

Dixie Carter also announced that three top independent talents from the British and Irish wrestling scene will join the Tour – underground hardcore icon Jimmy Havoc, high-flying sensation Will Ospreay and Irish heavyweight Big Damo.

Dixie said: “We wanted to know who the fans in the UK would most like to see on the Tour, so I put it out there on social media and the feedback was fantastic. We narrowed it down to the three names who got the most response and asked the fans to vote for their favourite.

“In the end the winner was… IMPACT WRESTLING. We won because the response was so incredible, and the vote so close, that we are bringing all three on Tour with us.”

TNA are also bringing their most famous matches to the UK for the first time. Manchester will host Monster's Ball, while King of the Mountain will take place in Birmingham. Fans in London will witness TNA's most dangerous night of the year - Lockdown!

In another first, the hugely popular Beer Money tag team of James Storm and Bobby Roode return to the UK for the first time in five years.
