Major announcement surrounding TNA!

Post by Adam D on Mon 03 Nov 2014, 12:01 pm

Didnt see this coming!!!


Press Release from TNA Impact Wrestling

Message from Dixie Carter:
“This last year has been a particularly challenging year for the wrestling industry and none more so that for Impact Wrestling. It has been widely reported that TNA has been looking for a new television network for 2015, after its long link up with Spike TV has come to an end in 2014. Over the last 6 months, I have personally been looking at ways to make the future of TNA more secure by looking at every single option out there. Many rumours have been circulating about the potential new deal.

“With our current television deal ending in December, I am delighted to announce that as of January 2015, TNA Impact Wrestling will no longer be with Spike or any other US network. Although our international carriers will continue for the foreseeable future, I can reveal that our US and Canadian fans will be able to watch TNA Impact every Wednesday on the soon to be launched TNA Network. This is an exciting time in the history of TNA and this will secure the future of the company that I love.”

“As well as our weekly Impact show, we will also be launching a new 2 hour support show on Saturday evenings called TNA SMASH! which will expand our brand further and allow our talent to truly show what they can do. In addition to this show, there will be an extensive archive for subscribers to view.”

“Full details will follow shortly, including ways to subscribe and platforms supported. For the time being though, I just want to let all TNA fans know that we are still going to be going strong in 2015 and you will be able to continue watching the greatest wrestling show for only $8.99 per month”

Well based on their sales of PPVs and the rip roaring success of the WWE network it's clearly a well thought out decision...

According to PWInsider.com, there is a strong feeling in TNA that Impact Wrestling will remain on SpikeTV. If this indeed turns out to be the case, that means TNA accepted the lower pay offered by Spike.

A SpikeTV source claims TNA and Spike are still in negotiations, a claim backed up by a TNA source who claims negotiations have always been ongoing, and re-signing with SpikeTV has always been a possibility for TNA.

ProWrestling.net and wrestlezone are also carrying the TNA Network story now.

I've still not checked these things so I'm still wondering if this is a work?

The idea reminded me of There's Something About Mary when Ted picks up a hitchhiker who goes on to explain his 8 minute abs concept to compete with the 9 minute abs workout.

Are you sure this wasn't taken from Kayfabe News? This is possibly the worst idea available to them. What about their buyrates makes them think people will pay a regular subscription for the product?

On a positive note, this means that us UK fans (me and Dyrewolf) will be able to see the show before Sunday.

Be interesting to see how they get around their Challenge TV deal to do that...I believe it's 2 weeks for WWE due to their TV deals

Dave Meltzer is now talking about it on the prowrestling torch too.

He is reporting that the $8.99 figure is only being used as a direct potshot at WWE.

They only need 80,000 subscribers at that price to be in profit AND to make going live viable again.

Is #thewalkingdead about the TV show or the state of the TNA roster?

Is #ebola about the deadly virus or is it the equivalent level of enjoyment as watching TNA?

Is #dollyparton about the vacous self promoting bimbo or the country and western singer?

I don't believe this. There's been no announcement on impactwrestling.com until I see it there I won't believe it. Besides TNA Smash is a ridiculous name for a new show, I just can't take it seriously! It sounds like a TNA brand of instant potato.

I was actually quite happy with Sunday evenings. If its moving, late Fridays or Saturdays would still do me. Don't fancy having to stay up on a week night.

At least they're being fairly realistic. They know they can't compete with WWE for viewers/subscribers, but have targeted a relatively modest number to get them in profit.

I'm just happy knowing they've got plans in place... Very Happy
