TNA Final Resolution 2011 PPV Poster

© 2011 TNA Entertainment, LLC.

Final Resolution began in 2005 as the traditional January PPV event for TNA. In 2008, the company changed around their PPV calendar and made this their final PPV event of the calendar year. That resulted in two Final Resolution events taking place in 2008. In 2013, the company changed their pay-per-view strategy and as a result the event is now a special edition of IMPACT WRESTLING.
