This upcoming Fall is incredibly important for the world of both two US wrestling mainstream companies, WWE and TNA, as they both are negotiating their new TV deals with respective networks.
For the good and life of pro wrestling on this continent, I hope both TNA and WWE sign new deals, whether it's these networks or some others. Good luck to Dixie and Vince.
Isn't Spike meant to be a worse channel than USA with less people having access to it?
Oh, and the thread title is missing the word 'potentially'. Nothing is sure yet.
It is, but nobody is talking about Raw moving to Spike, but Smackdown. SD gains around two+ million viewers, and reportedly Spike wants that kind of number on their network (and they can more that get that number).
It'd be interesting to see how much Smackdown is worth compared to Impact with their ~1.5 mill average viewership difference. I wonder how much viewership would factor into the deals compared to brand name.
Honestly hope Impact stays on Spike, I don't want another wrestling company to die that's for sure.
Smackdown to Spike would be alright for WWE, I guess, but I wouldn't TNA to lose their TV deal, that would be a big blow to the company. For TNA's sake I hope they renew that deal.
