TNA Worried About Spike TV Possibly Dropping Them In Favor Of WWE

Posted by Matt Boone January 8, 2014 9 Comments

According to various sources, there are people within TNA that are concerned about the possibility of WWE striking a deal with Spike TV and other Viacom properties if they don’t secure a new television agreement with Comcast when their current deal expires.

TNA feels that the sooner they can lock a new contract in with Spike, the better off they will be. TNA is pretty much depending on their Spike TV television deal to keep the company alive right now.

Apparently the goal when TNA signed their most recent deal with Spike TV was for the two companies to work to grow Impact Wrestling’s audience to two million viewers. Obviously that never happened, and worse than that, the viewership has actually declined since they signed that deal.

TNA’s current deal with Spike TV expires in the Fall of 2014, however negotiations usually start about six months before the existing contract expires.

      That would definitely suck for TNA and wrestling fans. TNA is a diamond in the rough with great talent on their roster. It would be a shame to see them be snuffed out by the WWE.

        To be fair TNA is the one that’s done the most damage to themselves WWE has had very little to do with TNA being in the shape they’re currently in.

          Very true. I never understood why they brought in Hogan and Bischoff and then tried to take on the WWE. That was pretty dumb. I wish they would have focused on their immense talent and not gone after big names like Flair and Hogan. I miss the six sided ring too, it made TNA unique.
