Source: PWInsider EliteThere are people within TNA that are worried about the potential of WWE moving to Spike TV and other Viacom networks if they don't lock in a new deal with Comcast. The feeling is that the sooner TNA locks a new contract in with Spike, the better off they will be. TNA pretty much depends on their TV deal to keep things going.
When TNA signed their last deal with Spike, the goal between the two companies was to grow Impact Wrestling's weekly audience to 2 million viewers and obviously that has not happened. TNA's viewership is down compared to when they locked in that deal.
TNA's current deal with Spike runs through this fall, but they usually start negotiations about six months in advance.
