Its you who obviously has no idea what they are talking about. Most of the other shows on Spike pay to be on their channel or have a give and take type of deal. A wrestling promotion is a completely different kettle of fish from every other show. Not every show spans over two hours to increase their viewership average. Every other show on Spike gets far more ad revenue because people simply wont sponsor TNA. They have a shitty local Direct Auto Insurance deal but thats about it. Spike is all about inexpensive programming. Spike has spent 10s of millions of dollars on TNA and they arent even a profitable business. Do you think if TNA was their main priority they'd have bumped them for Bellator? Spike owns a share in Bellator, so its not even a question they are the main priority.
When are people like you going to stop with the 'TNA will be dead' crap? They have TV deals in over 120 nations worldwide (up from 2 years ago), do you know how much money they get from that? Tens of millions. They are going nowhere.
They dont have TV deals in over 120 markets. Thats just a lie. And in the countries they are on, they are on at an ridiculous time in the morning. All those deals internationally are subject to whether they are in business or not. And if they lost Spike they would go under.
This isn't even speculation. In 2014 TNA could die if Spike chose not to renew. Or if WWE and Spike came to terms by offering Smackdown as a lead in to Bellator and they kicked TNA off the air. I'm not saying that will happen, but there is always a strong possibility. Everyone knows it anyway, so why are you getting all defensive.
