Dixie Carter says new TV deal to be announced “soon”


Responding to a fan tweet, TNA President Dixie Carter said that TNA will be announcing a new television deal “soon.”

Spike TV has agreed to keep airing Impact until the end of December 2014 as the two parties keep negotiating over a possible new deal, or so both companies say. A few months ago TMZ broke the story that Spike has pulled the plug on TNA and would not be renewing their deal, a story which both TNA and Spike refuted.

Originally the TNA contract with Spike expired in October however Spike agreed for a short extension through the end of 2014.

It’s not known if TNA will still be on Spike come 2015 or a new company will be airing Impact. If Spike has agreed to stay onboard with TNA it is most likely that Viacom will pay TNA much less per week for the shows.

Meanwhile, former TNA Superstar and locker room leader Bully Ray fired a tweet directed at TNA management without actually mentioning them. “When Generals do not properly communicate with their soldiers, consider the war lost and the soldiers dead,” Ray wrote.

TNA management has kept the roster in the dark about the future of the company and they have not made any live events since August. Bound For Glory was the last show on pay-per-view TNA produced as Impact tapings were taped months in advance. The next TNA live events announced are the shows in the UK in January.
