Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com looking at Spike TV not renewing Impact Wrestling. He wondered if TNA would be able to secure a new deal that will keep them in business with such a short turnaround.

"One would assume/hope TNA finds a new cable home and they move their fan base with them," Ross wrote. "If not, Viacom's Spike Network is in the same position TBS was in when Jim Crockett Promotions found themselves in financial duress. TBS bought out JCP and WCW aired on TBS & TNT for years. The question is does Viacom want to own a pro wrestling franchise to go with their newly acquired MMA franchise Bellator?

"It will be interesting to see how all the involved parties spin this matter come Monday morning. If WWE's scheduled financial, conference call doesn't go well later this week especially as it relates to the number if subscribers currently paying for the WWE Network this will be one of the most news worthy and potentially negative weeks the business has experienced in years. Hopefully the week will end better than it's started."
