Reports now are suggesting that the talks between TNA and Lesnar have to do with Lesnar possibly debuting later this year when TNA is expected to expand Impact on Spike TV to two hours following a new deal with Spike TV. This reported expansion with Spike TV is expected to take place in early October if negotiations are completed.
Kurt Angle is said to be the one who initially got the two sides talking as he reportedly had a long conversation with Lesnar about coming to TNA while the two were in Japan working for Antonio Inoki (which is where Angle defeated Lesnar for the “fake” IWGP Title). This same report is also stating that Lesnar quietly traveled to Nashville for an initial meeting several weeks ago. We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
