TNA officials have confirmed that Spike TV will not be renewing their contract for Impact Wrestling. Word is that the deal expires either the last week in September or the first week in October. TNA has until then to secure a new deal with another network.
Both sides are claiming that they were the ones to not renew but multiple sources have confirmed it was Spike’s decision. TNA says they are still in negotiations with Spike.
For those wondering if TNA’s international TV deals can keep them going, those deals are not lucrative enough and you still can’t tour in the United States without TV. There are lots of people in TNA that have a very small chance of picking up work in Japan, Ring of Honor and WWE.
