TNA announcer Jeremy Borash says he personally would have liked TNA Impact to stay on Monday nights longer, but he understands the move back to Thursday nights to establish “wrestling night” on Spike TV.

“I think it’s definitely a different era. It would have been nice to re-capture the competitive spirit of being on Monday nights, but at the end of the day, it was just more of an inconvenience. Perhaps being back on Thursday nights, we can prosper and thrive,” Borash said in a radio interview on Right After Wrestling.

“At the same time, I would have liked to have stuck it out a little bit longer on Mondays, especially at a point where there were very exciting programs that we did produce,” Borash said. “There are a lot of things about the Monday Night Wars that we could have taken part in and really brought some popularity to the idea of it again.”

For the first time in a long while, a TNA representative addressed publicly why the company hasn’t changed their name from “TNA,” which carries it’s own baggage as an acronym, or “Total Nonstop Action,” which is grammatically-challenged. Borash said they’ve invested enough time in getting people to recognize the company by the acronym that they do not want to change it.

“We have years of promotion invested in it and it’s definitely something, you know – what it is, Total Nonstop Action – they are three easy-to-remember letters,” Borash said. “Whether you like it or you don’t like it, it’s stuck around and it’s definitely made us three easy letters to remember.”
