More On Spike TV Not Wanting TNA Impact Wrestling, What Network TNA Is Heading To

Bleacher Report MMA lead writer Jeremy Botter spoke with Spike TV officials at last night's Bellator 131 event, who confirmed that the network is no longer interested in carrying Impact Wrestling. Botter wrote:

Dave Meltzer, who has been stating for months that Spike TV was not interested in renewing with TNA, reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that officials at Destination America believe that a deal with TNA was completed. As noted earlier, Destination is a channel in the Discovery Network that is available in 52% of the country. Meltzer noted that the number is actually high, because it counts all of the subscribers for a service like DirecTV, even though it is only available on the higher tier packages. The highest rated show in the history of Destination America has only done around 440,000 viewers.

Meltzer also added that with the new deal, ROH is almost definitely likely to have more weekly viewers on Sinclair than TNA on Destination America.
