TNA announced on Twitter today that Impact Wrestling is no longer going to be airing on Thursdays, but will move to Wednesday nights starting August 20 on Spike.
The move is probably to avoid going head to head against WWE’s Smackdown which is expected to move back to Thursdays on SyFy starting in the Fall.
The show has been airing in its Thursday time slot since April 2006, moving from the previous Saturday slot. Impact aired on Mondays live for a two month period in 2010 but direct competition with Monday Night RAW wasn’t the smartest decision and it moved back to Thursdays in May of that year.
Impact will keep its 9PM EST time slot for two hours.
