– The Sept. 8, 2011 episode of iMPACT! Wrestling did a 1.02 cable rating, with 1,358,000 viewers. That’s down a bit from last week but is not so bad considering it was against the Green Bay Packers-New Orleans Saints NFL opening season game, which did a huge 17.7 cable rating.
– TNA Women’s Knockout Champion Mickie James was asked on her official website if she would ever return to WWE.
“This is a tough question that I often get asked and usually avoid answering. I can’t say that I never will or would go back to the WWE.” James said.
“I honestly never intended on leaving until I retired. However we don’t choose our destiny. We just live it. I am very happy at TNA and am enjoying my time here for as long as it lasts. I’ve had a lot of opportunities to grow inside and out as a performer, artist, and a woman. One really never knows what tomorrow holds. That’s why you make the most of every moment. Good, bad, or indifferent, and own it like only you can.”
She also gave her thoughts on the WWE Hall of Fame, writing: “To be inducted in to the Hall of Fame is a huge honor for any one person in this industry. It not only gives you credibility as the mark you made in the pages of history to the fans, but notoriety for the path you paved for everyone who followed in your footsteps.”
– An X-Division #1 contender match between Kid Kash vs. Jesse Sorensen is set for TNA No Surrender.
