First reaction - relief! I am honestly just relieved TNA have a home and will continue on for the next few years at least.

Further reflection - this could potentially be a good move for TNA, if Destination America is willing to promote them better (than Spike) and invest in more programming then they might just be the network TNA needs to grow little by little. I do think for TNA any significant growth needs to happen piecemeal to ensure their future. Also if Destination America is one of the fastest growing networks in America then if TNA proves popular on the network it may help the network to expand further and be included in even more cable packages in the future helping grow TNA`s fanbase and ensure solid TV ratings.

I just hope that TNA now book solid shows and produce entertaining wrestling rather than go from one disaster to the next in 2015. This is a fresh start for TNA, I hope they don`t screw it up!

For those that care:

DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS ACQUIRES EXCLUSIVE BROADCAST RIGHTS TO TOP PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING LEAGUE, TNA IMPACT WRESTLING, FOR DESTINATION AMERICA
(Silver Spring, Md.) – Discovery Communications announced today that it has signed a multi-year deal with TNA (Total Nonstop Action) IMPACT WRESTLING to bring the popular league to homes nationwide on Destination America, the only network dedicated to celebrating the people, places and stories of the United States. Destination America officially enters the ring with its first world premiere of IMPACT WRESTLING in January 2015. The series features some of the biggest names in professional wrestling, including Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, Kurt Angle, Bobby Lashley and Gail Kim. The partnership includes the U.S. premieres of additional TNA WRESTLING series and specials and provides Discovery Communications with international broadcasting rights in select regions, to be announced at a later date.
“Our partnership in this uniquely entertaining franchise with TNA IMPACT WRESTLING provides a significant addition to Destination America’s programming strategy,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Destination America, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Fit & Health and Discovery Family Channel. “The enduring, cross-generational enthusiasm of pro wrestling is felt by millions of fans around the country, from coast-to-coast and throughout the heartland. We are delighted to bring this beloved American pastime to the one and only network dedicated to celebrating the unique spirit of the U.S., Destination America.”
“Our knockout partnership with TNA IMPACT WRESTLING continues Destination America’s mission of bringing our viewers the best of all-American entertainment, and going center ring with one of the world’s foremost professional wrestling leagues fits perfectly within our DNA,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “Wrestling has created a fiercely loyal, passionate and widespread fan base, and we look forward to being part of the TNA family.”
“We are very excited about Destination America being the new network for IMPACT WRESTLING and the partnership with Discovery Communications both domestically and across the globe. Their commitment to promote and grow our brand in innovative and compelling ways was instrumental in knowing we had found the right home,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “Together we will create an experience that takes our fans on a new journey that will push the envelope of technology, including where we take our cameras, going deeper into our superstars’ lives and showing the reality of what it takes to create a weekly professional wrestling show, all while showcasing the very best male and female athletes in the world.”

Buff Bagwell was one of my favourites.

TNA could suit him.

You been hacking Dixie's Twitter account again Adam? raspberry

On a serious note, its great to see TNA finally have a new TV deal in the bag. As talkingpoint said, I just hope they get off to a good start. First impressions will be crucial...

I'm looking forward to the BBQ Pitmasters v Mountain Monsters for the tag titles.

Are they on the American equivalent of the Sky channel that has Paul Ross reading horror stories as one of its main shows?

Fresh Network, Fresh Start. This isn't just good news for TNA, this is could for the wrestling business.

This is a great opportunity to cut ties with some of the higher earners and the dead-weight and start fresh promoting the brand that TNA is and not the product Impact Wrestling! If they can recreate their own identity and their own stars then it could be the perfect opportunity to make up for the past couple of years

Looks like ADR might very well be on his way to TNA and Lucha Underground simultaneously

Thats fine with me. I quite like him as GM / Executive Director or whatever the new job title is. Think he makes a good authority figure. It means less ring time, which probably suits him and his feud / power struggle with MVP looks like its got some legs.
