They were on Fox Sports Network (I believe that was the sports station) for a small bit (they had the "sport" look to their show where they had the wrestlers names on the top screen, time limit, etc), and I remember seeing them on another station or two before that. Possible the dreaded "Channel 3".

I feel like TV deals shouldn't be this important in 2014. Why aren't there any wrestling promotions that are completely internet based?

There are.


But you have to remember that Spike TV is losing money with TNA. TNA isn't making any money.

Their PPV's and TV Tapings have HORRIBLE turnouts. Their shows on the road have sometimes 100 or so people there. They cut the majority of their talents pay by huge percentages. Hogan left. Sting left. Rumor has it Angle is trying to get back into WWE and sign with them. Most of TNA's big talent is making their living off of indy promotions.

Plus no other network would pick them up, they see there is nothing to be gained with them.


I predict by the end of 2014 TNA will have folded.

I read in an interview that Angle has considered going back to WWE so he can end his career where he started it, but can't talk to Vince about contract negotiations due to his contract with TNA. So if he quits TNA, theres a chance he wont pass the phyical test to go back to WWE.

AJ Styles just did an interview where he said TNA offered him around two hundred thousand a year. His prior contract was for three hundred and fifty thousand a year.

The only ones I feel bad for are Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode and James Storm. They're the only decent workers who have stuck with them for a long time. I can bet that if the company doesn't fold they won't resign anyway. The rest are all cannon fodder.

It's my understanding the current TV deal isn't over until October. That's 3 months remaining to find someone else. Maybe ESPN 37 or something can show their programming at 3 A.M. as a last resort.

The TV deal ends right before Bound For Glory. Maybe Russo can book Dixie in a "TV Deal on a Pole" match.

I should have worded that differently. I know plenty of promotions do ippvs but I was thinking more along the lines of something that has weekly shows but they do it all through a website or streaming service. To my knowledge there's no promotions doing something like that.
