The Monday Night Wars Officially Returning, WWE Comments

– Entertainment industry publication Variety is reporting that TNA Wrestling is set to announce on Monday that it’s flagship TNA iMPACT show is moving to Monday nights starting March 8th.

Variety.com writes that iMPACT will air head-to-head with WWE RAW for 2 hours, from 9-11 p.m. (Eastern time) and will be live every other week.

“We’ve always wanted to go on Monday nights,” said TNA president Dixie Carter. “That’s where the wrestling viewing audience is accustomed to being.”

Eric Bischoff calls iMPACT moving to Monday nights “a little bit of history repeating itself. Bischoff said, “This is a great opportunity for TNA to step up and get noticed and showcase their product. I’ve said since the moment I started talking to Dixie, in my opinion we should go head-to-head with ‘Monday Night Raw.’ To me, it’s a battlefield — and to win the battle, you have to be on the battlefield.”

When asked to comment on WWE’s new competition on Monday nights, WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman said, “We’re not too concerned. We’re in good shape.”
