In the least surprising news you'll hear today, Brooke Hogan's wedding with Bully Ray did big ratings for TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV last Thursday night, scoring the highest quarter hour rating during the show.
Pro wrestling weddings just work, even if the wedding takes place on Impact Wrestling and it involves Brooke Hogan and Bully Ray as an obvious set up for a swerve involving the Aces and 8s, one of the worst booked heel stables in the history of the industry.
Everything went exactly as predicted too, with Tazz defecting from TNA and apparently leaving his announce position to join the group. After he did so, the biker gang hit the ring and destroyed everything and everyone in sight, taking Brooke hostage in the process.
During the melee, her dress came down and her tits were out right there in the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida. And those fans get in free of charge!
Boobs or not, the segment did a 1.34 rating for its timeslot, easily the highest of the show and one of the highest ratings the show has pulled in many months. Overall, the entire episode averaged 1.6 million viewers, and with the final segment doing so well, provided a strong lead in for the Bellator mixed martial arts event that went down immediately after it.
All told, Spike TV executives must be happy.
