Impact WrestlingAlthough TNA will be taping the rest of this year's Impact Wrestling shows in Orlando, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Kevin Kay, the President of SpikeTV, recently had the following to say about Impact touring in 2012:

"It was a mutual [Spike & TNA] decision. Dixie and Eric came in and pushed for it. I always wanted to do it. It's great to have a home, but you don't get the level of excitement as you do on the road. It adds a another level. We're continuing discussions. We haven't seen a (ratings) bump, but you can't judge ratings week-to-week, some weeks things happen like competition, even though TNA holds up well against sports. As we can afford to continue it or increase it, it's a financial decision. It adds a lot of excitement and vibrancy to the show."
