ORIGINAL: There has been a lot of talk of TNA moving iMPACT! Wrestling back to Thursday nights. The talks come as WWE prepares to move SmackDown to Tuesday nights starting July 19. It’s believed that iMPACT! Wrestling will take a hit in the ratings as a result. At this time nothing is official.
The show started airing on Spike TV in 2005 on Saturday nights, before it moved to Thursdays in April 2006. It moved to Mondays in 2010 and Wednesdays in 2014, before switching to Friday nights on Destination America in 2015. It returned to Wednesdays in June of last year before going to Tuesday nights for POP TV. It’s not going back to Thursday nights in July.
