With no Ultimate Fighter on tonight before TNA, tonight’s rating for iMPACT! will be very interesting without a strong lead-in. The belief right now is that TNA would be happy with a 0.9 rating, but anything below a 0.8 would be considered a huge disappointment.

X Division Champion Samoa Joe appeared on the Mancow radio show earlier today. Jim Jesus, Manco’s sidekick on the program, told Joe that it was only a matter of time before he would go to WWE. Joe said that remains to be seen and that he isn’t a Vince McMahon type of wrestler. Mancow responded with, “You mean you’re a hetrosexual?” When a caller came on the show, who appeared to be gay, he said Joe’s body was disgusting and Joe responded with, “I’m me.” Another woman caller said she was a big fan and Joe plugged ROH’s Chicago show.
