Update on the Future of TNA

Right now, TNA does not have any scheduled domestic events for the rest of 2015. At the most recent TV tapings, Dixie Carter told the talent that she guarantees TNA will be on television January 7, 2015, which is the first Wednesday after their contract with Spike TV ends. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that a lot of people close to the situation believe that TNA will be around in 2015 but that no one knows at what level the promotion will continue to run (either a “bare bones” company, at the level of RoH, or at their current level). TNA has also told it’s talent that they can accept independent dates without contacting the office first. Also, TNA took the belts off of people that they were unsure would actually be there with the company in 2015, making sure their champions are those under long-term deals. As far as Impact on Spike is concerned, its expected that the last Impact will air on 11/26 and that the rest of the shows will be “Best Of” or other compilation shows. TNA has been talking with both the Velocity Network and WGN and its believed that they are also talking with CMT. The 4th network has been reported as not being a cable station
