More on TNA Spike TV primetime show on 11/3, Kevin Nash notes, + BFG
On Wednesday, October 19, 2005 at 7:36 PM EST As reported on earlier today by Scott Williams, Spike TV has granted TNA a two-hour primetime special on Thursday, November 3rd from 9-11 p.m. Eastern. Spike TV nor TNA have announced a special name for the show yet, but you can expect details to flow out rather quickly in the coming days leading up to the show. This is a huge move by Spike TV this early to grant them a primetime spot and according to reports, Spike officials were said to be very impressed with the numbers TNA has been drawing the last three weeks on the network.
On a related note, Kevin Nash took part in a Spike TV conference call earlier this afternoon to officially announce the primetime show on November 3rd. TNA's Andy Barton also took part in the call as well. Among the things discussed, Nash mentioned that at his age (46) he didn't know much longer he could go and was happy to be apart of TNA as he feels they are at a point where WCW was once at before they blew up as big competition. Nash also addressed trademark issues with many former WWE wrestlers, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and his upcoming NWA World Title Match at Bound for Glory this Sunday. Mike Johnson over at PWInsider.com has a great recap of the conference call here.
The following was issued on TNAwrestling.com regarding the status of Bound for Glory weekend and the activies scheduled:
