As noted earlier, TMZ is reporting that Spike TV will not be renewing TNA's contract for Impact Wrestling in October when it expires.
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 to F4WOnline 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. Dave Meltzer reported in the most recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Spike TV were not happy with Russo in the past and made it clear that they wanted nothing to do with him.
