New York, NY, October 25, 2011 – TNA’s “IMPACT WRESTLING” on Thursday, October 20 (9:00-11:00pm ET/PT) drew over 2.2 million viewers, making it the highest watched show in its Thursday night timeslot ever and the second-most watched episode in the six years it has aired on Spike TV. The highest being a special Monday night telecast in January 2010 featuring the TNA debut of Hulk Hogan.

The Spike TV telecast ranked #2 in the hard-to-reach demographic of 18-49, placing second behind MTV’s megahit, “Jersey Shore.” The event featured the crowning of a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, James Storm, who defeated his arch nemesis and former Olympic champ, Kurt Angle.

This Thursday, “IMPACT WRESTLING” will feature TNA Heavyweight Champion James Storm in action, the in-ring return of Jeff Hardy as well as TNA Knockout Gail Kim. Also appearing are “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles and many more.

— Eric Bischoff praised Bully Ray on Facebook after watching his performance on this week’s episode of Impact Wrestling.

He wrote, “Watched this weeks version of IMPACT for edit notes at 3 am this morning. IMO Bully Ray is emerging as one or the top talents in the business today. Flawless.”

Ray faces Jeff Hardy on the show that will air Thursday.

— James Storm has responded to an online report stating that some people within TNA Wrestling consider him “too southern” to represent the organization as World Heavyweight Champion.

He tweeted Tuesday, “I think it’s awesome that I’m to “southern”. It makes me….ME. So to the people who don’t like it… Sorry about you damn luck. And a little FYI it’s not to southern, it’s to redneck and the are beer drinking rednecks all over THE WORLD not just the south.”
