Spike TV Executives Pleased with Impact Ratings

Posted by Steve Carrier on Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013


Several of Spike TV’s top executives were in attendance at the TNA Impact Wrestling tapings last week. Spike is pleased with the ratings that TNA have been generating lately, as they feel the company’s draw helps Spike’s overall pritime average and it allows them to sell their primetime advertising stock at a much higher rate.

There has been no talk of Spike being unhappy with TNA’s performance in their ratings.

    Spike wants to keep being a low rating network.

    Pleased? Please! I figured out if Eric would take a pay cut they could probably get 4 of the wrestlers back they really need.

    • Iduhloser

      Right? Dixie needs to demote Bischoff(s) and Hogan(s) and get DDP and Jake the Snake to book.

      • Louisa Baton

        I agree with you on DDP as Booker but Jake the Snake might be a little wild lol. I mean I don’t know how his tastes run as far as picking talent. DDP is a motivator which means even if they don’t start off great he can shape them. Jake is getting better as a person and I think that’s enough to focus on for awhile.

        • Iduhloser

          Well, DDP might have to use Jake as an assistant to keep an eye on him (to keep a drink out of his hand).

      That’s where I disagree they are choking they may have AJ BUT then this is you org your WELCOME Yeah but you start the main event mafia. Keep Hogan and Sting and your going with some stupid gimmick that Abyss and Joseph Park are two different people, who is Manik who cares like we don’t know. Aces and 8s like they are tough now they are bulls with that been fixed. Bischoff and Brisco Both are ferry Yes I said it, Knux does he even wrestle? Then you got the Dudleys that the only Tag team and you shouldn’t change your name from The Dudleys to Aces and 8s because that means you suck. No I didn’t forget Mr Anderson because he just sucked WWE/Tna I hail from Green bay and I couldn’t cut it. Then you got the retarded verison 2.0 MeM the org Sting Kurt and Samoa adds Magnus and Rampage That just sad you have to rejoin a group to fight the Aces and 8s Oh and here is the rat in the MEM its Rampage he gonna get Kurt than Samoa. and while Magnus wins the BFG he will lose to bubby. That’s knowing Tna because bubba gonna worm his way back to get his title. OH Jeff Hardy SUCKS anyone thinks he is somewhat good is retarded. And they don’t have enough bad guys Aries is about the only good bad guy but they love him Roode sux get over it. Who is a good villain not Danials or kazarian they are liked. What is this the hug federation now.

      • Rob

        That was some of the worst written material i have ever read, maybe TNA should hire you

        • Rich Francis

          Yeah they will give me a massive contract and release 5 more people just so that. Soon it will be the SOWH SPIKE OLDTIME WRESTLING HUGS which has STING HOGAN ERIC and as a KNOCKOUT DIXIE CARTER

  • Louisa Baton

    Did you guys know that Jason Harvey works for TNA? I do not want another WCW. I’ll give you the skinny quickly. TNA’s problem is their WCW war mentality. People want to see guys fight one on one. That don’t want or need factions and wars they need skills and interests. Focus more on the titles and less on pretending TNA is fighting outside factions.

    • Iduhloser

      Well hell, TNA is WCW all over again. “A fool and their money are soon separated”, Dixie. Bottoms up!
