1. This is 2011 and nobody uses TV Guides anymore.

2. My DVR Guide calls it "TNA iMPACT! Wrestling" so no.

My mom uses the TV Guide but mostly for the articles.

Dish Network currently has it listed as "TNA Wrestling".

Knowing TNA, they probably forgot to actually notify Spike or anyone else relevant to making the change outside of their own onscreen graphics. (And I might be overly generous to assume they'll bother to change their own graphics.)

I believe the definition of TV Guide has transitioned to "guide that is on TV" at this point. You'd think Spike would want to de-emphasize wrestling to get more casual viewers (read: perverts). It's not like they're a paragon of class anyway.

I wonder if this is Spike's clever way to transition TNA out of the wrestling slot and pick up a new, even cheaper fed?

The info for Smackdown on my provider still appears as featuring John Bradshaw Leyfield.

This would be an awesome promotion to raise viewership for the company:

"I Was Tricked Into Watching TNA!"

(People voluntarily watching TNA doesn't seem to be working.)

As does Tivo.

So the question is, what is the point. :\

They've also apparently registered (or acquired) impactwrestling.com (according to Google, the domain was used for a bulletin board unrelated to TNA back in 2010). Why would they go through all of that when it's just a change to the television program?

Thanks for sparing the meth lab jokes, unlike SOME wrestling boards. You've gotta think it can't get any lower for Jeff, and hopefully he'll be able to take as long as he needs once his 60 days are up to get himself together.
