The January 14 edition of TNA iMPACT! scored a 1.26 cable rating (rounded up to a 1.3), down from the 3-hour live show’s 1.5 rating but up from the previous Thursday’s 0.7 average (for the 4-hour New Year’s Eve show). TNA officials are VERY happy with the 1.3 for this week.

We need to have a serious talk, He can [do MMA and pro wrestle] but he just needs to be a businessman about it. You can’t stiff us just because you have to train for a fight. You can’t put [Strikeforce] ahead of us; that’s not going to work me. I’m going to fix that real quick. That’s going to happen Sunday. I’m going to see what he’s made of because I’ve been around too long to have someone like him to do business with”
