Big Backstage Update On TNA & Spike TV, & More News

TNA will be taping two weeks worth of iMPACT! for Spike TV this coming Monday night in Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios. These will be the final tapings before the Against All Odds PPV on February 11. The next set of tapings are scheduled on Monday, February 12.

Speaking of that date, Spike TV currently has a three-hour block of "UFC Unleashed" scheduled for Monday, February 12. This date is relevant because WWE Monday Night Raw will be preempted that night on the USA Network due to the Westminster Dog Show and will instead air on Thursday that week. There has been talk of having TNA hold a primetime special that night to capture the Monday night wrestling audience. Whether or not they will come to an agreement remains to be seen, but that date is quickly approaching.

Speaking of Spike TV and TNA, there have been a number of negotiations between both parties in the recent weeks about both expanding their relationship.
