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.

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.
Wrong, TNA is Spikes best rated regular program (i.e a weekly show) all year long, they also are in over 100 nations (the last figure I saw was over 120) worldwide and get paid for each of them - http://www.impactwrestling.com/news/...cast-Schedules

I'm not getting 'defensive' at all, I just see that all the posts you make in the TNA section are complete fabrications, scaremongering and nonsense. People like you have been at it for years and have yet to be proved remotely right about the 'upcoming demise' of TNA.

TNA is not 'dying' and is not going to 'die' anytime soon. Business is down, that doesn't mean they are going to go bust.
