Impact Ratings Continue To Sink, Isis Originally Rejected By TNA



– The February 17 episode of TNA iMPACT! scored a 1.13 cable rating, down from 1.20 the previous week and 1.31 on February 3.

The first hour scored a 1.15 before dropping to a 1.11 in the second.

iMPACT! averaged 1.5 million viewers over the course of two hours, down from 1.7 million viewers last week and 1.9 million viewers on January 27 and February 3. It was tied with the January 6 episode for the fewest average viewers of the year.

– Isis the Amazon, the six foot nine woman who was to have appeared as the protégé of Vickie Guerrero on the third season of WWE’s NXT, wrestled a dark match against Florida independent women’s wrestler Leva Bates prior to Tuesday night’s TNA Impact taping in Orlando, Florida. Company officials were aware of her prior to her involvement with WWE last year, but showed no interest after watching tapes of her wrestling. They reportedly changed their tune on her because she appeared for WWE.

Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer says she has been wrestling on the independent circuit since 2007, but had never heard of her until a few months prior to her appearance on NXT. He described her wrestling ability as beginner level and exuding no charisma.
