TNA's future on Spike is uncertain, at best
We noted earlier this week that there's a feeling going around the TV industry that Spike TV will not be keeping TNA's Impact Wrestling after this year and that their current negotiations aren't serious.This has reportedly been known by some people close to Spike as far back as May. Spike TV reportedly wants out of the pro wrestling business, meaning they won't be buying their own company or looking to buy TNA, which has been rumored. TNA has apparently been considered a lame-duck product.
The impression is being given now that TNA has a new home to go to but it's not a major network. Spike is still willing to let TNA stay on a short while after the end of this year, possibly week to week, until a new network picks TNA up. There is still no date of cancellation for TNA on Spike but the one point that keeps being brought up is how Spike is willing to work with TNA while they transition to another network.
