Spike TV Cancels TNA Impact Wrestling - #MMBTNA

TMZ reports that Spike TV has let TNA officials know that they will not be renewing their TV contract in October. No word yet on when Impact will stop airing.

Multiple sources with knowledge of the deal told TMZ that Spike TV executives contacted Dixie Carter this week to break the news. Dixie told members of her inner circle the following day.

TMZ reports there's no bad blood and Spike gave TNA such advance notice so it would have time to shop for a new TV deal. Spike and TNA did not return TMZ's request for comment.

There were reports that Dixie Carter gave the impression to staff last week that they were leaving Spike on their own, due to a lack of promotion. However, other sources have confirmed that Spike told Dixie they weren't renewing the deal.

The decision came just a few days after Spike officials found out that Vince Russo is still working for TNA.
