Spike, a television broadcasting channel that sports programs that range from drama’s all the way to wrestling revealed earlier on this year that they will be dropping “TNA Impact Wrestling” when their new year season begins. This means that no longer will you be able to watch your favorite old wrestlers in the ring which isn’t a bad thing as these wrestlers are far out of their prime. Luckily for fans of the Television Program there is a chance that WGN America will be taking on the television as their own but these are only rumors for right now.
The reasoning for this rumor is because spokesmen at WGN American have been making small hints towards the station purchasing the TV Show. This wouldn’t surprise many as the network is dropped Chicago Sports based programming in their new January Season. This is because the WGN America is moving as a basic cable network. They want to offer programs that just don’t cater towards their previous unique group of viewers but now they want to cater towards the mass group of people. Offering TNA Impact Wrestling could allow for them to do just that as wrestling has something for everyone to enjoy.
It was only announced early on in September that TNA Impact Wrestling would be getting dropped by Spike TV. Since that announcement the program has been running around trying to find a new broadcast channel to take on their program. It has proven to be difficult so far but could end up being something a blessing in disguise in the future.
