Wednesday's TNA Impact Wrestling premiere on Destination America drew 263,000 viewers for a 0.46 cable rating. This was the most watched show on Destination America for the week, beating Killing Bigfoot, which drew 250,000 viewers.

The last first-run episode of Impact on Spike TV in November drew 980,000 viewers
Insane bump from Hardy that probably should have killed him:

If all those drugs haven't killed that dbag yet, a bump isn't gonna kill him.

TNA Unhappy About Impact Viewership Being Reported, Destination America to Issue Press Release.

There were people upset backstage at Friday night's tapings about that number being reported online. A top TNA executive stated to PWInsider at the tapings that the 263,000 number is wrong and that's just the demographics number.

Destination America will reportedly be issuing a press release on the ratings as soon as Monday.

Yeah. It was breaking news on the Network. They interviewed a couple of people with their thoughts. A really nice touch.

Really? Didn't he pretty much hate Hogan most of the time. Hogan said they made up at some doctor office but I tend not to believe anything he says. I would think Lanny Poffo would be a better choice.

Wait, is Cena threatening to steal the CM Punk bit?

Spoiler:
I thought Savage and Hogan were never able to fully reconcile? Seems like an odd choice.
I would have thought his Brother would do it but I also remember he too was at odds with Vince/WWE

In any case, glad to hear he's being inducted.

Michael Cole during the Ascension segment: "So now you're catering to Twitter, Book?"

Oh, the irony.

Re: The January 2015 Pro Wrestling Thread - WWE's Royal Rumble; Return of TNA

It'll be a HOF first if Savage is headlining this years HOF class. I don't think a deceased wrestler has ever headlined.

Unless you count Andre going in as the inaugural WWF HOF inductee.

Then again maybe Sting or Taker will end up going in.

Furthermore I could potentially shed some tears if Savage ending up being inducted with Miss Elizabeth going in too.

I guess Lanny was on the Network yesterday. My guess is that Lanny is giving the speech after Hogan inducts Macho.

Wasn't it Bret Hart?
