Dot Net TNA News Exclusive: Spike TV vice president responds to Bubba The Love Sponge's radio show caller that claimed the network may cut TNA Impact

Spike TV vice president of communications David Schwarz reached out to on Wednesday and made the following statement regarding Bubba The Love Sponge's anonymous caller.

"I can assure you the caller was a fake and TNA Impact is not only among the highest rated shows with young men on Spike, but on Thursday nights as well," Schwarz wrote. "This past Thursday, Among Basic Cable Networks between 9p-11p, TNA ranked #3 in M18-49 behind ESPN (NBA Conf Semis CAVALIERS/CELTICS) and TBS (Disturbia, Family Guy). And our relationship with Dixie (Carter) and TNA has never been stronger."

Powell's POV: For those who missed it earlier, Bubba had an anonymous caller on his show who claimed to work for Spike TV. The caller claimed that Spike was considering the idea of cutting TNA Impact, and falsely claimed that Impact is the lowest rated show on the network. I remain highly skeptical of Bubba's caller, and I'm still laughing at Bubba saying, "I just want to trot away quietly."
