As previously reported, if Spike TV and TNA fail to reach a new TV
agreement, iMPACT! Wrestling probably wouldn’t be pulled immediately after the
deal expires. Spike would keep working with TNA on a temporary basis as they
find a home for the show. Even if TNA and Spike don’t re-sign, TNA won’t “go out
of business” as they have overseas contracts to fulfill and have to shoot
footage to fulfill their obligations.

TNA has been working with United Talent Agency to find a new
approach to live events. Changes could be made soon in how the events are
presented and planned.

As noted earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted this tidbit in his latest
blog
:


“I’m told from optimistic sources that should know that
the prospects are good for Impact Wrestling to remain on cable TV after this
current Spike Contract ends. I still think that there’s a shot that Spike
retains their wrestling product but time will tell soon enough. Though this is
purely speculation, I can’t see how Impact can make it over the long haul simply
providing content to international entities. For the sake of all involved in
Impact, I hope that things work out for them in a positive manner. I like their
roster whose strength is definitely bell to bell physicality.”
