TNA Wrestling's flagship show "Impact Wrestling" could soon be without a home -- Spike TV quietly let the league know it's not renewing their TV contract … TMZ has learned.
Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the deal ... tell us Spike execs contacted TNA President Dixie Carter this week to break the news -- and the following day Carter informed members of her inner circle.
TNA's current deal with Spike reportedly runs through October. It's unclear at this point when "Impact Wrestling" will stop airing on Spike.
We're told there's no bad blood, and Spike gave TNA such advance notice so it would have time to shop for a new TV deal.
TNA's show debuted on Spike TV in October 2005 -- and helped the league rise to [HASH]2 on the wrestling scene … behind the WWE.
Yeah i agree, i think it was all to late from a ratings point of view for Spike. Also they were apparently unhappy that Vince Russo was secretly being used as a creative consultant, while at the same time they had told Spike officials that they werent.
Im sure Challenge will continue to support the product in the UK and i would expect another network in the states to pick them up soon enough.
