– Former TNA production manager Randy Ricci has posted a blog looking at Angelina Love’s sudden departure from TNA. Elsewhere in the blog, he makes his feelings known about Love by saying she has “the best butt in the history of pro wrestling.” He then recalls a story of TNA president Dixie Carter privately saying “she needs to cover that up” during one of her first appearances in the company.
“I have an “estranged” wife and 3 daughters. I know very well about “female competition,” Ricci wrote. “Dixie was totally intimidated by Angelina’s “derrier” and just about threw a fit and said “she’s o.k. but, she needs to cover that up”. RIDICULOUS!!!!”
– Last week’s wrestling-fueled edition of iMPACT actually scored a 0.96 cable rating, nabbing the program’s lowest number in nearly a year. The last time iMPACT scored a rating this low was on October 9, 2008 when it drew a 0.95 rating. Compared to the previous’s week show, iMPACT took a 15.5% plunge in the ratings. The show scored a 0.93 rating in the first hour and a 0.99 in the second hour.
It would appear that iMPACT’s rating drop can be attributed to the adults 18-49 demographic as it drew a paltry 0.54. iMPACT scored its highest rating in the final quarter-hour of the show and its lowest rating in the first quarter hour. The show finished with a 1.04 rating for the main event featuring Hernandez vs. Sting.
