Dixie Carter is in Los Angeles this week and the belief is that she is there for TV negotiations as the company looks to find a new home when their run on Destination America ends.
As first reported last week by Jason Powell’s prowrestling.net, WGN has come up as a potential new home for TNA. TNA had talks with WGN last year before they finally settled with Destination America. For those asking, there is nothing to the Spike TV rumors. We emailed a rep at Spike TV and they tell us that there is no interest in bringing back TNA Wrestling. Spike TV rebranded their network this year and they are moving forward with their new direction for programming. Furthermore, Spike TV’s top priority right now is Bellator.
The other network that has come up in recent days is the POP TV network. POP TV currently airs Paragon Pro Wrestling on Saturday mornings. The belief is that Carter is in Los Angeles for meetings with them since their headquarters are in the Los Angeles area.
TNA’s deal in India would pay them a substantial amount of money so if they needed to buy their way onto POP TV (Paragon Pro Wrestling pays for their Saturday morning timeslot) then that would be an option and their India TV deal would keep them afloat. We were told that they are close to coming to terms with one network.
