Eric Bischoff issued the following statement on his official Facebook page in response to the lower 1.1 cable rating TNA Impact garnered this past Thursday night.

“”How did the Olympics do? Think there were many men 18-49 watching? Seriously, we have known from day one that the way to gain market share and grow ratings is just like I did in 95. The wrestling audience gathers on Monday nights. Have for almost 2 decades. Giving them an option and getting them to sample our product will increase the ratings.”
