Earlier today, we reported that TNA was “considering” moving Impact from Tuesday nights to Thursdays mostly due to the changes WWE has made with SmackDown.
However, it didn’t take long for TNA officials to make the decision official because the move is now legitimate and Impact Wrestling will be airing on Thursdays starting July 21st.
TNA Wrestling released the following statement on the change:
“THE SUMMER HEATS UP ON POP AS IMPACT WRESTLING BROADCASTS LIVE TUESDAY, JULY 12 AT 9/8c AND MOVES TO THURSDAY NIGHTS STARTING THURSDAY, JULY 21 AT ITS NEW TIME AT 8/7c TUESDAY, JULY 12 AT 9/8C
A special LIVE edition of IMPACT WRESTLING: Destination X.
On Tuesday, July 12, IMPACT WRESTLING on Pop is LIVE from Universal Studios Florida with Destination X, as the Stars of IMPACT WRESTLING’s signature high-flying, no-limits X-Division take center stage. And, in the Main Event it will be Title vs Title as X Division Champion Eddie Edwards faces TNA World Champion Bobby Lashley inside the six-sided ring. For the first time ever at Destination X, the winner of the Title vs Title match will walk away with the X Division and the TNA World Titles.
THURSDAY, JULY 21 AT 8/7 C
IMPACT WRESTLING on Pop MOVES TO ITS NEW REGULAR TIME SLOT on Thursday nights at 8/7c starting July 21st.
