A few weeks ago, late on a Sunday night, some breaking news came through the wire that Spike TV would not be renewing their deal with TNA Impact Wrestling, and now we’re beginning to find out why that is.
According to WrestleZone’s Justin LaBar, Spike TV asked for 10% ownership in the company, and this was a proposal that Dixie Carter refused to oblige.
Chair Shot Reality on WZ has been able to confirm the real reason that caused Spike TV not wanting to renew the contract with TNA.
Spike TV wanted to purchased a percentage of TNA Impact Wrestling and move forward as share owners of the business. Dixie Carter would not agree to this deal and it caused the news of the potential end of their working relationship.
This really is no surprise. Spike loves having a wrestling product on their station, dating all the way back to when they had the rights to WWE Monday Night RAW for a few years before they bolted back to USA in 2005.
What’s also not shocking about this report is Dixie Carter once again being her own worst enemy. She, more or less, wants to falunt herself as the owner of a professional wrestling company, even though she has no idea what she’s doing.
Now, though, Carter’s stubbornness could ultimately end up costing her the entire company by the time this is all said and done.
