The Reason For The TNA Impact Wrestling Time Change

SpikeTV President Kevin Kay spoke at this week’s conference call about the decision to move Impact Wrestling up to 8PM ET. He said the reason was because there is a bigger available audience at 8PM ET vs. 9PM ET. He also added that TNA wants to avoid competing with the NFL once the season starts.

He did not say if Bellator will begin airing after Impact Wrestling on Thursdays next year once Bellator moves to SpikeTV.
