TNA acheived a 1.3 rating with 1.97 million viewers for the Thursday, 4/2/09, airing of iMPACT on Spike TV……a new audience record.

Show featured matches where Scott Steiner defeated AJ Styles after AJ tried to use a chair until stopped by Jeff Jarrett as he would have been DQed by the ref.  Steiner then planted AJ on the chair while the ref was disatracted with Jarrett and pinned him.    Main Event of Sting vs Samoa Joe ended with Joe throwing the ref down for the DQ then hitting the muscle buster on Sting.  Booker T got involved and was laid out too.  Joe carried Sharmell out of the building as the show ended.

Both matches were well set up earlier in the show with an inring with Jeff, AJ & Steiner, and interviews/vignettes with Joe & Sting.
