Are we going to see any big changes in IMPACT Wrestling in upcoming tapings under new management?

We really won't know that until after this week's tapings begin.  I haven't heard of any major changes planned.  I am sure they will try and find new talents to bring in, but whether those will be major names or independent talents, I can't confirm.

Does NJPW tries to raid the talents from other promotions in Japan like AJPW as the same way WWE signs talents from other companies? 

Not really.  In the past, there have been talents who have jumped from one company to the other in Japan, but in recent years, it's been more of a process where talents slowly migrate.

Why was Wrestlekingdom NJPW's biggest show of the the year on Thursday?

The show has always been traditionally held on the fourth of January.   It is usually the end of the New Year's Holiday celebration.

Why has WWE not done the Slammy Awards these past two years? 

WWE dropped the conce last year, noting they were looking at new concepts for the event and this year, opted not to bring it back.  There's been no discussion of it returning at all, to the best of our knowledge.  My guess is it'll pop back up in a few years.

Is it true Sheamus played Darth Vader in Star Wars: Rogue One?

No.
