Impact moving time on Thursdays

On Twitter Wednesday, TNA President Dixie Carter announced that Impact Wrestling would be moving back to 9 PM EST starting on Thursday, May 30th. Just over a year ago, they had moved to an 8 PM start time.

With Bellator MMA's January 2013 debut on Spike TV at 10 PM, Spike had created a four-hour block of mainly live combat sports on Thursday nights. With Bellator only doing scattered summer shows until the fall, this may signal a change in day for Bellator or potentially a later time slot, the latter of which seems unlikely.

More on this later today.
