TNA Wrestling issued a statement on the rumors of the cancellation of their television contract with Discovery Communications, denying the reports and threatening legal action.
“It has come to our attention that several internet news sources have falsely attributed statements to TNA, its executives and broadcasting partner,” the statement reads. “These false statements constitute defamation and if necessary we will seek all legal remedies available to us.”
Last year the company also denied the rumors that Spike TV were not renewing their deal and went flat out against TMZ who reported the original story. Eventually the TMZ story proved to be correct as the highest officials within TNA knew that Spike were ending their association with the company.
