Foley Responds To Skepticism On Changes Being Made To TNA



Mick Foley, who instigated the change of TNA iMPACT! to iMPACT Wrestling on last Thursday’s broadcast, says he is still confused about the matter.

“You know, I’m still wondering in a lot of ways,” Foley said in an interview with Brian Fritz for BetweenTheRopes.com “But I think we wanted the name for the show specifically that made people instantly aware that we were a wrestling show.”

He was asked whether he expects to see more wrestling on iMPACT! Wrestling.

“You know, I hope so. And not just more wrestling, but hopefully better wrestling. I’m not taking a knock at any of the guys. I think, for example, when Ric Flair and I had the big match in October, it took people by surprise and they said, ‘Wow, that’s something we’d expect to see on a pay-per-view.’

“I think there has been a little sense over the years that wrestling was secondary to the other things going on in the show. So I’d like to see an increase in the number of minutes of wrestling, but I’d also like to see an increase in the seriousness of the matches – that more matches are seen as being pay-per-view quality.”

He also responded to skepticism that significant changes won’t be made to the show despite its rebranding.

“I would say that personally, I’m doing my very best to make the show different and to make the show matter, and that hopefully we will see a positive change,” said Foley. We’re going to know one way or another in the next month or so if people are happy with the changes. If they’re not, we’ll try to tweak them again.”
