I am hoping t reuse the metal strip that attached the original wall to the skin.
And yet, just by putting on one of the brackets that are purpose made to support modern TVs (I'm assuming you are talking about a flat screen TV?) you will strengthen that part of the wall.
Of course, here's another reason to post a few clear, detailed closeups of the area you are concerned about, so that we may have a better idea of what it is you are describing.
The slashes could be shown clearly using the macro mode on your camera. This is usually accessed by finding a button associated with a symbol that looks like a little flower. It gives great detail on closeups.
Here's just a wild idea
of how to hide marks on that particular wall: cover it with a sheet of either aluminum or brushed stainless steel, glued on. It would look good, hide the "slashes" and also buttress the wall to some degree, depending on the material you used, of course.
I get the idea that you have a TT with a centre bath, and if this is the case, I would suggest that removing one of those walls may be more complicated than you might want to tackle as a beginner project...
