Jim Ross had an instant reaction to the TMZ story of TNA Impact’s cancellation, but has come back with another blog with some additional thoughts.
on Spike TV possibly negotiating hard
In the world of negotiations, Spike may simply be trying to pay a much lower rights fee to TNA than in the past and have made their position clear by saying that we are not renewing the deal at the current numbers…. Why would Spike want to get rid of one of the few shows on their network that garners over 1M viewers per week in prime time? That makes no sense to me but Spike negotiating to keep TNA at a lower dollar does.
on a TNA reboot
Every once in a while many businesses have to hit the reset button and essentially start over with their infrastructure. Simply from what I hear it seems as if that is a timely thing to do for TNA and that process seemingly has already started. ‘Crisis Management’ was practiced daily by my department in WWE back in the day because we were always only a key injury, etc or two away from being in a dilemma.
on WWE Network
Finally WWE has their scheduled financial conference call set for this Thursday which will likely include an update on the WWE Network which continues to be the top priority within WWE. That particular call is greatly anticipated and for WWE’s sake I hope that the number of subscribers to the network are growing significantly.
