Update on TNA Impact Replay on Monday, Tito Ortiz, and December PPV

As reported on yesterday, TNA Impact has been listed for a new Midnight replay on Monday night's starting in October. This is another way for fans to catch the show who may miss it during the "Slammin' Saturday Night" time block. If ratings do well for both shows, it is possible Spike could move up the replay to 11pm ET on Monday, allowing TNA programming to come on just as WWE RAW goes off the air on the USA Network. It should also be noted that Spike has made no official mention of TNA on their website despite playing commercials for its debut the past two weeks.

Although not confirmed, it is expected that former UFC star Tito Ortiz will be returning to TNA in October to help draw UFC viewers to TNA Impact. Ortiz made his first appearance for TNA at the Hard Jusice PPV on May 15th when he was the special guest referee for the Jeff Jarrett vs. AJ Styles match for the NWA World Title. TNA continues to be interested in bringing in other names for October, including Sting and Bret Hart. Sting has not been easy to reach as of late, while Bret Hart may not agree to an appearance so close to his WWE DVD being release.

TNAwrestling.com announced that the name for its PPV in December would be Turning Point. This was the same name the event carried last year. TNA opted for a new name for November's PPV, titled Genesis. TNA does intend on sticking with some of the names they established with their monthly PPV's in the last year.
