From talking to people in WWE, there is said to be “pretty much no concern whatsoever” in regards to TNA’s iMPACT! going head-to-head with Monday Night Raw on January 4, 2010. There is such little concern about TNA that WWE is not even looking to move Raw to three hours, though there is talk of lining up a strong guest host for the first two weeks of the new year.
Among those in WWE, the general feeling is that TNA president Dixie Carter is “incredibly naÃ¯ve” and that TNA is in for a massive disappointment come January 5th when the ratings come in.
