Default Championship Thursday

Back in April, Hulk Hogan announced a new format to IMPACT WRESTLING on Spike TV – “Open Fight Night”. This once-a-month special gave anyone on IMPACT the opportunity to call out anyone on the roster and that person had to fight. Along with “Gut Check”, the episode featured a championship match where Hulk Hogan decided the challenger. Starting Thursday night and happening once a month, “Championship Thursday” will break out into its own episode of IMPACT WRESTLING on Spike TV - Hulk Hogan announced to ImpactWrestling.com today.

On “Championship Thursday”, an IMPACT WRESTLING champion will walk to the ring not knowing whom they will face. During this monthly episode, four challengers will meet with Hulk Hogan and plead their case why they deserve the shot at the champion. One by one, the challengers will be eliminated until bell time when two challengers remain. As the champion stands in the ring ready to defend, Hogan makes the final decision and the title match starts right then!

On Thursday, the World Tag Team Champions – Kazarian and Christopher Daniels -walk to the ring not knowing their foes. Hulk Hogan will sit down with four sets of challengers and hear their case during the broadcast! The challengers will be AJ Styles and a partner of his choosing, Robbie E & Robbie T, Gunner and Kid Kash, and Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez!
Tune into Spike TV on Thursday at 8/7c to see how it unfolds LIVE!
I support this idea but this means Gut Check will be the selling point of OFN, so it's time to bring the best from OVW/indies.

Were titles even defended on the recent OFNs?

It's just too gimmicky and I don't think it matters. OFN was unique along with the inclusion of Gut Check and it made for an interesting point in a month and a great way to showcase talent that would otherwise get ignored when creative have nothing for them. But if you consider the gap between PPVs on average to be four weeks; two of those weeks are gimmicky nonsense. I don't see why this can't be a concept of OFN rather than it's own separate show.

Three days before PPV we're getting free title matches? Nice way to kill your buyrates.

You mean giving tv time and build to divisions we barely get to see on tv these days?

It sounds like they are just moving the Championship Match they used to do on OFN to one show a week. Not a bad idea.

So they're just taking the title match part from Open Fight Night and making it a stand alone episode?

Sounds good I guess. They probably wanted to free up more space to do different things on OFN, IMO.

EDIT: Just thought about how entertaining the backstage segment with Hulk, The Robbies, Gunner, Kash, Chavo, Hernandez, AJ, and (Kurt?) is going to be

I just like the fact that TNA is willing to try new things and implement new ideas. One of the benefits of being the No. 2 wrestling company is that it makes you try harder. My guess is that AJ will choose Kurt Angle, Hogan will give them the title shot, and Daniels-Kaz will lose on purpose via countout. That would set up another match (maybe a cage match?) on Sunday or maybe Bound For Glory.

I like the fact that they're seperating Championship thursday and open fight night. Good move.

I have strong feeling this will be the last year of having 12 ppv's and it will be cut down to 8 or 6 for 2013
