Spike TV has canceled TNA’s secondary show, Reaction according to various reports.
The show which airs directly after TNA Impact had focused on enhancing storylines with backstage promos and vignettes highlighting feuds.
The final episode of Reaction airs this Thursday.

Thoughts: Many were surprised by this decision considering the fact that Reaction posted a solid rating in its timeslot (11pm). Frankly, I am sad to see the show canceled as it did help massively in developing the Knockouts’ feuds with vignettes and promos etc. I would say that a lot of the success of the Mickie/Tara feud had to do with Reaction. All we saw them do on Impact was brawl; without that context on Reaction, I doubt this feud would’ve been as personal and heated as it did get. They dd a good job in telling a backstory to that feud on Reaction, explaining the bad blood between the duo. The Knockouts are getting more time these days on Impact, so we’ll see if this affects feuds and storylines in the long run. I hope it doesn’t.
