The History of HardCORE Justice

By

The History of HardCORE Justice

The Sandman appeared at Hardcore Justice 2010.

© 2010 TNA Entertainment, LLC.

The original Hard Justice took place in May of 2005. The following year, the event moved to August where it has been held every year since then. In 2010, the name of the event was changed to Hardcore Justice in honor of the stars of the original ECW. The event that year was an unofficial reunion of that organization.

In 2013, TNA changed their pay-per-view strategy.  As a result, this show is now a special edition of IMPACT WRESTLING.
