wrong. wwe themselves stated that
"NBC Universal has until February 15, 2014 to make a decision on WWE's final offer. Other bids must be submitted by February 28, 2014 and WWE plans to select their media partners by March 4th, 2014"

Also, this hasn't been mention but TNA Impact Wrestling is the highest rated program on Spike
hasn't been mentioned because its not true. stuff like bar rescue and ink master easily beat out impact and double, sometimes triple impacts 18-49 demo.

if they lost spike and didn't get another us network they would be fucked. i don't care how many tv deals they have outside the us, the real money is made in the us. wwe have more tv deals and premium deals on international broadcasters (not channels running re-runs of decades old gameshows) and the 2/3rd of all their tv money is domestic despite wwe having way more programming available internationally such as superstars, nxt, free ppvs etc.

I was told by multiple sources within Comcast, they have till March but that is neither her nor there. The point is I believe Comcast will pony up the money, cash and peso's to keep everything has it is today. I bet Spike will continue on with TNA

That means TNA has every right to send feeders out to other networks. As it was mention in a earlier post which was incorrect, FOX Broadcasting Group isn't currently negotiating with the WWE. That would breech Comcast / NBC Universal negotiating rights with the WWE. If Comcast / NBC Universal can't reach a new t.v. rights deal with the WWE by March, then the WWE has the right to seek out other networks. Also, this hasn't been mention but TNA Impact Wrestling is the highest rated program on Spike

Check with your "people" in the TV industry again. Impact is not the highest rated program on Spike. Like mentioned above....that honor would belong to Bar Rescue. It averages 2.1 million viewers and quadruples Imapacts highly coveted 18-34 & 18-49 demo which is the most important. John Tafer >> Dixie Carter.

Edit: Also forgot to mention rerun episodes of COPS have drawn higher viewers then TNA.

The majority of TNA's audience is over 49 or under 18.
I was wondering the same thing. Right now if Jarrett is really going for a new promotion it's probably more of a concern for TNA, than a remote possibility of WWE even bother to change networks.

More I hear about how things are going down, more I think TNA could use the negotiations that WWE has with various television groups to insert themselves in it and get decent deals out of it on the rebound.

I still think those three letters T N A are a huge wall into attracting other entertainment entities though.

This makes me worry
Yea but all ECW had was a TV deal, these guys were poor as Hell. TNA has Panda, a Billion dollar Corporation. If they want to keep wrestling going, they'll keep going no matter what.

I agree, those three letters TNA do more damage than good to their image. I say go with Impact Wrestling Federation if they need a 3 letter name.

There's always YouTube. TNA could strike a deal with Google. Hell, ROH was doing OK before the recent TV deal. I believe that TNA could survive online if they play it smart.

With the WWE Network launching in under 2 months I don't think this is an issue as all their shows are moving to the network.
