- Spike TV has canceled Impact Wrestling recap program TNA Rewind, F4WOnline.com confirmed Wednesday.
Last Thursday's premiere episode, the first hour of what was tapped to be a weekly three-hour block of TNA Wrestling programming, drew an anemic 0.2 cable rating. This rating is approximately one-third of what the network typically garners in the 7:00 p.m. Thursday time slot.
The program will continue to air online via ImpactWrestling.com.
- According to Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer, TNA Wrestling officials are hopeful that their efforts toward improving the product will result in better business numbers by this fall, whether it's increased pay-per-view buys or attendance.
Meltzer adds, "I think everyone realizes that the people who gave up on TNA are not going to come back quickly, and word-of-mouth, even today when you've got social media, can't turn things around. They realize they have a lot to do to rebuild fan trust in the product."
- Mickie James, who has not appeared for TNA Wrestling since losing to TNA Women's Knockout Champion Miss Tessmacher on the June 21 episode of Impact Wrestling, competed at an independent wrestling event last Friday. She put over Rachel Summerlyn for 2CW.
