Total Nonstop Action Wrestling has held a variety of professional wrestling tournaments competed for by wrestlers that are a part of their roster.

TNA Hard 10 Tournament

The TNA Hard 10 Tournament was a hardcore tournament for a trophy that would proclaim the winner the most hardcore wrestler in TNA. It featured eight wrestlers competing in matches where a point-scoring system was used to determine the winner. The system was that 1 point was awarded for a direct hit with an object and 5 points for putting your opponent through a table, with 10 points needed to win. The only tournament was held in 2003, which was won by The Sandman. The tournament was promptly abandoned by TNA in light of fans complaining about the point system.

Fight for the Right Tournament

The Fight for the Right Tournament was a tournament to determine the number one contender for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship and later for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Paparazzi Championship Series

The Paparazzi Championship Series was a tournament that began at Turning Point 2006 and involved five X Division competitors competing in a variety of matches where points are awarded for victories. These matches included limbo, Texas hold 'em, musical chairs, and a push-up contest, among others. The tournament was created to give the wrestlers airtime while also continuing the Paparazzi Productions storyline surrounding Austin Starr, Alex Shelley and Kevin Nash. Throughout the competitions, Nash kept bringing up Bob Backlund, which led up to Backlund being a guest judge at Final Resolution 2007 during the finals of the competition. Shelley defeated Starr in the finals to win a bowling trophy presented by Nash at Final Resolution 2007. The other three participants in the tournament were Sonjay Dutt, Jay Lethal and Senshi. Nash viciously needled the other three (especially Dutt) throughout the challenge, but kept the actual competition fair and even, always inviting the losers of each contest to "feel free to kiss the winner".

TNA Turkey Bowl

The TNA Turkey Bowl was a tournament held in 2007 and 2008 that aired on the Thanksgiving night episode of TNA Impact! The tournament consisted of three preliminary three way matches. Each match featured a member of the Heavyweight Division, The X Division, and The Tag Team Division with the winner of the match going on to the finals. The winner of the finals, also a three way match, won $25,000. The wrestler who lost in the finals was forced to put on a turkey suit. In the 2007 tourny, Samoa Joe won the tournament, with A.J. Styles being forced into the turkey suit. In the 2008 tournament, Rhino won the tournament, with Alex Shelley being forced into the turkey suit.

Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament

The Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament was a professional wrestling single-elimination tournament held by the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion during the months of April and May 2008 for the vacant TNA World Tag Team Championship. It took place on TNA's television program TNA Impact! and at their Sacrifice PPV event on May 11, 2008. It was announced on the April 24, 2008 episode of Impact! by Management Director Jim Cornette. It involved twelve teams overall.

Background

On the April 17, 2008 episode Impact!, then-champions A.J. Styles and Tomko defended the title in a Three Way match against the teams of Kaz and Eric Young and The Latin American Xchange (Hernandez and Homicide; LAX). Young left during the encounter, but later returned as his "Super Eric" superhero character to pin Styles and win the championship for his team. Due to this finish, Styles and Tomko were scripted to argue that Young and Super Eric were two different people. Super Eric and Young refused to admit they were one in the same in the storyline, which caused Cornette to strip Kaz and Young of the championship. Cornette then set up the Deuces Wild Tag Team Tournament on the April 24, 2008 episode of Impact!, announcing two stages with the first involving eight teams competing in qualifying matches to gain entry into the tournament. The second stage of the tournament involved eight wrestlers known as the Egotistical Eight chosen by Cornette. The Egotistical Eight made up four randomly chosen teams that would compete against the four teams which qualified at Sacrifice for the vacant TNA World Tag Team Championship.

Qualification matches and Egotistical Eight

The Egotistical Eight were announced on the May 1, 2008 episode of Impact! as Awesome Kong, B.G. James, Booker T, Kip James, Matt Morgan, James Storm, Robert Roode, and Sting. The first two qualification matches took place on the April 24, 2008 episode of Impact!. Team 3D (Brother Devon and Brother Ray) defeat the team of Black Reign and Rellik in the first, while in the second the pairing of Christian Cage and Rhino defeated The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) to advance. The final two took place on the May 1, 2008 episode of Impact!. In the first, LAX defeated the team of Kaz and Young. The team of A.J. Styles and Super Eric defeated The Rock 'n Rave Infection (Jimmy Rave and Lance Hoyt) in the second to qualify for the tournament. Two Egotistical Eight teams were determined by lottery drawing on the May 8, 2008 episode of Impact!. Sting drew Storm's name in the drawing, connecting the two together for the tournament. Meanwhile, Morgan drew Kip's name, joining the two as a team. Later in the episode, Sting and Storm fought in No Disqualification match, which Sting won. Kip and Morgan also fought in an encounter, with Morgan coming out the victor.

Sacrifice

Booker T teaming with Roode and Kong teaming with B.G. were the final two teams for the tournament, determined at Sacrifice. The first Quarterfinal match pitted Team 3D against the team of Sting and Storm. Team 3D were the victors after Sting turned on Storm by forcing him through a table. The second Quarterfinal match was between the team of Booker T and Roode and the team of Cage and Rhino, which the later won after Rhino tackled Roode. LAX defeated the team of Kip and Morgan in the third Quarterfinal match after Morgan accidentally hit Kip with a bicycle kick. B.G. and Kong fought the team of Styles and Super Eric in the fourth and final Quarterfinal match. During the bout, Styles accidentally tripped while attempting to jumping off the ropes causing him to fall face-first to the mat below. Afterwards, B.G. lifted up Styles to perform a suplex, which Styles countered into a small package pin for the win.

Team 3D, the team of Cage and Rhino, LAX, and the team of Styles and Super Eric all advanced to the Semifinals. Team 3D were pitted against the team of Cage and Rhino in the first bout, while LAX were pitted against the team of Styles and Super Eric in the second. Team 3D defeated Cage and Rhino after Ray bashed Rhino with a kendo stick. LAX advanced to the Finals after their manager Hector Guerrero reversed a small package pin attempt by Styles on Homicide into LAX's favor while the referee was distracted by Salinas. LAX went on to defeat Team 3D in the Finals to win the vacant TNA World Tag Team Championship when Homicide pinned Devon following a splash from the top of a padded turnbuckle.

Aftermath

After Sacrifice, LAX defended the TNA World Tag Team Championship against Team 3D in a rematch at TNA's Slammiversary PPV event on June 8. The match was set up on the May 15, 2008 episode of Impact!, when Team 3D attacked Guerrero, blaming him for their loss at the event. At Slammiversary, LAX defeated Team 3D to retain the championship.

Bound for Glory Series (2012)

On the June 14, 2012, episode of Impact Wrestling, TNA started the second Bound for Glory Series to determine the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at October's Bound for Glory. Just like the previous year, the tournament included twelve men, who would be facing each other in matches on pay-per-view, television and at untelevised house show events and would be given points based on their performance, with a submission victory giving a wrestler 10 points, a pinfall victory 7, a countout victory 5, a disqualification victory 3 and a draw 2 points, while a disqualification loss will cost a wrestler 10 points. An opening gauntlet match on the June 14 episode of Impact Wrestling gave out 20 points to the winner. Similarly, two four-way matches and a three-way match contested between the participants at Hardcore Justice gave 20 points to the three winners. Originally, all matches in the tournament had a ten minute time limit, but on June 28 the limit was raised to fifteen minutes. However, on the August 16 episode of Impact Wrestling, the time limit was ignored without explanation for a match between A.J. Styles and Christopher Daniels, which lasted 16 minutes and 50 seconds. Unlike the previous year, in the 2012 tournament wrestlers faced each other only once in singles matches (not counting special multi-wrestler matches). As Mr. Anderson challenged for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship instead of taking part in the opening gauntlet match, he finished the tournament with one match less than the other competitors. The round-robin portion of the tournament concluded on September 6, while the finals took place on September 9 at No Surrender.
