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 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.Fact|date=October 2007

The tournament was won by Sean Waltman and Alex Shelley in 2005, its only year of existence. In addition to winning the trophy cup, the team was entered into a four-way match with a shot at the NWA World Tag Team 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 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. Samoa Joe won the tournament, with A.J. Styles being forced into the turkey suit.Results9TeamBracket
