TNA produced a themed version of Impact titled “Genesis”. The show was expected to be a ratings increase from last week, but that ended up not being the case. Impact drew a 1.1 rating with an average of 1.32 million viewers, which is down from last week’s 1.18 rating with an average of 1.39 million viewers.
The show featured Sting vs Ethan Carter III, Bully Ray vs Mr. Anderson, a Kurt Angle/Dixie Carter promo and the show ending with Sting challenging Magnus to a world title match. Magnus accepted the challenge and they will battle on next week’s show. If Sting wins, he wins the title, if Magnus wins Sting’s contract gets torn up and is out of the company.
