Spike TV planning to air TNA Impact quarterly on Monday nights

Big Mistake

Marrying TNA iMPACT! to Monday nights = Big Mistake

According to Prowrestling.net, Spike TV officials are planning to air TNA iMPACT!!! a little more often on Monday nights — kinda Clash of the Champions-style but a lot suckier — and they might even consider making the move permanent. Ay yi yi…

Spike TV president Kevin Kay told Multichannel News that TNA Impact is planning to air TNA Impact on Monday nights on a quarterly basis. “If it’s successful, I’m not opposed to moving it to Monday nights,” Kay said. “This is the time for this … TNA has a lot of momentum with Hulk Hogan and we have the ability to market and promote it.”

We’ll see if ol’ Kevin “On the Take” Kay changes his mind after the ratings come in from the Jan. 4 head-to-head masacre that’s sure to ensue. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for competition, but low-rent TNA isn’t exactly competition for WWE, and the only momentum Hulk Hogan is going to add is whatever speed his Little Rascal can muster. Everyone on god’s green Earth knows who Hulk Hogan is, but no one cares enough about him to watch three hours worth of shitty wrestling that he’s given an arthritic thumbs-up to. And to think droves of wrestling fans will follow TNA to Monday nights — especially since I guarantee you whatever TNA serves up on Jan. 4 will just be a big stinky shit show — is awfully presumptuous. So make the move if you want, Spike TV, but like Dusty has said recently, you’ll only be committing career suicide. And not the kind you can dress up in an 8-bit costume, either. -Eric

    I’d love to see Kevin Kay come out and explain the rules before one of Russo’s Dollar Store Royal Rumbles. It would probably take longer than the match. – Dusty
