Impact Rating Spikes For Night Of Reveals, No Plans For Amazon



– The May 12 episode of TNA iMPACT! scored a 1.27 cable rating, up from the previous week’s 1.15 number.

iMPACT! averaged 1.8 million viewers overall, up from 1.6 million the week before. It was also the program’s most watched show since March 17.

– The role of Kurt Angle’s on-air “mistress” went to former WWE Diva Chyna instead of independent wrestler Isis the Amazon due to concern over her wrestling ability and behind-the-scenes reputation.

With the role calling for a wrestling match this Sunday at Sacrifice, TNA Wrestling officials opted for “The Ninth Wonder of The World” over the 6’9″ grappler.

“Isis is way too green still,” said one company source. She worked a dark match prior to the February 15 iMPACT! taping and drew poor reviews for her wrestling ability.

Isis still also has a reputation for having a poor attitude. She garnered major heat amongst the locker room due how she carried herself at the February event.

“I’ve never seen a guy or a girl rub the locker room this much the wrong way,” said a TNA employee following her tryout.

Company officials no longer have plans for Isis the Amazon.
