TNA President Dixie Carter was very forthcoming about SpikeTV's ratings expectations for Monday's special live Impact broadcast.
"The network will be happy if we hold the number we traditionally get on Thursday night and would consider that a huge success," Carter said during a post-Impact press conference.
But the ratings are not the big story of the night for TNA who went head to head with WWE live on Monday night for the first time.
"The ratings will not be as much of a factor as the fact that we made it here," Carter said. "Our network believed in us enough to put us here.
"Tonight is about the wrestling fan, giving them a choice and raising the bar on every level."
