Word came out late Sunday night that Spike TV is opting not to renew TNA’s contract. The news even made it to the main stream as TMZ has even picked up the story. Even more strange are the stories that Vince Russo being involved with TNA still could have a deciding factor for Spike to sever ties with the organization.
So, what now?
At the moment it looks like TNA and Spike are trying to negotiate something out of this news. Possibly in regards to staying with the cable channel or an extension until TNA can find a new home.
IMPACT was still pulling a decent rating and if Spike doesn’t want wrestling anymore, maybe TNA could look at lesser known channels like ION who use to carry the WWE’s Main Event Sh0w.
If TNA does go under for lack of finding a new home, one could only imagine that it would be a matter of time before the WWE would purchase their library for the WWE Network. This could be a good move if for just filling in the void of explaining Sting’s career after WCW folded.
This is a big blow to the wrestling community and we will have more on this situation as it unfolds.
Paige snaps, we get a new trio, Stephanie gets arrested and the main event to SummerSlam is officially SET!
Fatal Four Way for the WWE Title
John Cena vs. Kane vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns
Mascara De Fuego: Cena. Its fairly obvious that Hunter’s plan “C” is Brock Lesnar. I still think it’s a great idea to put it on Lesnar and it only makes sense against Cena. He gets vengeance for losing his first match back to the fed which was against Cena many moons ago. Not a bad selling point. The match should be good but not great.
Great Puma: Cena. The cat is outta the bag ain’t it? Promotional poster leaks of Cena vs. Lesnar at Summerslam are all over the interwebz. Is the WWE smart enough to use web leaks to sway their audience in a different direction? I’m thinking not. I expect Reigns to get the most shine despite the inevitable LOLCENAWINS outcome. Looking forward to Brock Lesnar destroying Super Cena in August.
Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
Great Puma: Rollins. People love the chase. The WWE loves the chase. If Ambrose wins, this feud dies. Rollins winning by cowardly, heel ways, would push the storyline and just make the crowd adore Dean Ambrose more. I say Ambrose kicks Rollins ass for thirteen to fifteen minutes, and then Rollins wins with a lot of help from his Authority stablemates. And the beat goes on and on and on and on…
Mascara De Fuego: Ambrose. Man, I really hope this is match of the night. Feels right about time to do this match and Ambrose needs a good win after this week’s beat down. I can’t wait to see these two finally working against each other.
Ok, it’s time for the aftermath for Money in the Bank and I am DRUNK! This wont be boring…
Who took the briefcase and who is the NEW World Championship!?
Money in the Bank Ladder Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
United States Champion Sheamus vs. Kane vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Cesaro vs. John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt
Mascara De Fuego: John Cena… I really hate to say it but my gut is telling me this fucker winning this match. Yeah there are rumors that Brock Lesnar will main event SummerSlam against the Champion but I think even if he wasn’t they’d still put the titles on this guy. I would love to see Wyatt or Cesaro take it for a big swerve. Too early to put it on Reigns in my option, I think they need to do the slow burn with him. Anyone else just doesn’t make sense and would be a TERRIBLE swerve.
Great Puma: Cesaro. Cena vs. Brock is the big money match for Summerslam, but Cesaro is the choice that’s going to make fans the most happy here. I realize it’s a full mark pick but somebody has to do it. Let Cena get it back at Battleground before he takes on the Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar. The key here is that Paul Heyman can carry the main event mic duties over the summer until Bryan or Brock get the World Title back.
