PEORIA, Ill. -- Peoria was once again thrust into the national spotlight Thursday night when the TNA Impact Wrestling crew rolled into town.

The live show, that airs on Spike TV, features wrestling icons Jeff Hardy, Sting and Hulk Hogan among others.

Hogan says the Impact show is how wrestling used to be back when he was the champ. He also had a special message for our viewers.

"Hulk Hogan, the greatest wrestler of all time brother, and right here, at the Peoria Civic Center, you need to check out Impact Wrestling, because it's going to get crazy, and Hulkamania is going to run wild tonight, brother."
