Contrast that with what Kurt Angle said in Fighting Spirit and Powerslam last month. Oh wait that was negative so it doesn't count.

Just ask Sting, Hogan and AJ Styles.

That's no true at all. I doubt you've ever read an actual dirtsheet.

Not as easy as you are stating. The ad rates for Wrestling are really low compared to most other programming.

Of course wrestlers want another viable promotion to give them an employment option.

Of course they'd be concerned about whether Spike will renew the show, given that it's the backbone of TNA.

As to Russo, who has led a wrestling company to legitimate success in the last 15 years?

For common sense people here are having a hard time dealing with it.

Creative do seem to be all over the place. There doesn't seem to be a strong creative hand at the helm of this company.

Best case scenario-- WWE moves to AMC (or is bought by AMC), TNA keeps their Thursday night spot on Spike, and USA brings in TNA to fill their Monday night slot.

i was already asking where was the TNA low morale thread of the week. Just a reminder, we haven't seen yet a TNA will be sold/closed really really soon thread in a few days.

They drew less than 1,5K for fucking LOCKDOWN. 'Nuff said.

And LEL at Samoa Joe, that fat useless fatass.

Of course morale is low,this company is in the crapper right now.

Hopefully they can pull a WCW 2001 & get very entertaining because the formula they are going with right now really blows.

usa isn't happening in a million years. smackdown isn't on usa and that averages about 2.5-3 times what impact averages a week. if usa loses raw they will air re-runs of ncis their top rated show after raw. the only reason raw is on usa is because its viewership makes the network number 1 and without it they drop to 4th or 5th some weeks.

even if by some miracle they ended up on usa that network averages about 2-2.5 million in prime time (spike averages about 900k-1 million) so doing under or just above the prime time average is a means of cancellation...just ask tough enough which averaged 2.5 million viewers in 2011 and got dropped after one season.

wrestlezone reported yesterday that jarretts new promotion are a possibility on spike

Quote:

According to a source close to Jeff Jarrett, WrestleZone can confirm his new project will indeed be the launch of a new wrestling promotion.

We were told the promotion is likely to launch on TV sometime in January 2015, and there are several possibilities as to which network will carry the company.

As of now, SpikeTV, CMT and TBS are leading candidates, as TBS is looking to get back into the wrestling business, and Jarrett has CMT connections.

SpikeTV seems to be the long shot in the group, as Jarrett's promotion would only air on Spike if TNA is gone by January.

Yes, I don't know what everyone's talking about. TNA is drawing big crowds every weekend, live gates are enormous, and everyone's getting fatass bonuses. Why would the morale be down?
