Backstage Reason For Impact Wrestling Moving To Wednesday Nights

0

As noted previously, TNA and Spike TV announced today that Impact Wrestling will move to Wednesday nights beginning with next week’s show.

The decision for the move was reportedly made within the past few days and one of the key reasons behind the switch was all of the competition that TNA faces on Thursday nights, with NFL games on CBS and the rumored move of WWE SmackDown to Thursday nights on SyFy.

The first edition of TNA Impact Wrestling on Wednesday will air next week, August 20th on Spike TV.
