TNA Impact! (stylized as iMPACT!, because it's SO FUCKING CLEVER~!) is a show that nobody watches. Trolls on the board like to think it's great.
Timeline of the Failure of Impact (aka THE GOLDEN CARROT FORMULA)Edit
June 2002 - September 2004: weekly PPV's. Failed due to NO BUYS and Russo. Blamed on not having TV.
June 2004 - May 2004: Fox Sports Net. Nobody watched it. Russo's fault. Blamed on not having a better network/timeslot.
October 2005 - April 2006: Moved to Saturday nights at 11 on Spike. The show sucked; was Russo's fault. Blamed on not having star power and a better timeslot.
April 2006 - November 2006: Moved to Thursday night at 11. 19,000 things happened in 60 minutes. Russo's fault. Blamed on not being in primetime.
November 2006 - October 2007: Moved to 9 PM on Thursday. Still the same shit. Russo's still employed. Blamed on not having 2 hours.
October 2007 - March 2010: Expanded to 2 hours. Started broadcasting in HD, so you can see the crap crystal clear. Now twice as hard to follow, due to being a two hour show and cramming more shit into it. Vince Russo still writes the shows. Blamed on not being on Monday nights.
January 4th, 2010: 3 hour Monday show. Debut of that stark ravin' Hulkster, dude, Easy E (not this guy), all of his friends, and a bunch of other shit. Took Russo TWO FUCKING MONTHS to write. I'm sure even this chick could write a better show. Was a "success" until 9:15 PM
March 8, 2010 - whenever the next excuse is, probably tomorrow: Everything's fine. Really~! No problems here! WHAT A SUCCESS. The replay on Thursday night did more viewers than Monday. Russo is still employed. Caused the Mexican to go on an awesome rant.
February 2012 - Russo fired. TNA now considered less awful by wrestling fans who get entertained by jingling keys.
