Backstage Update on SpikeTV Not Renewing TNA Wrestling; Was Vince Russo’s TNA Involvement an Issue?

Nick Paglino

tna wrestlingAccording to F4WOnline.com, Dixie Carter seemed to give the impression to TNA Wrestling employees sometime last week that the company would be leaving SpikeTV on its own accord due to lack of promotion. However, other sources have claimed that’s not the case, and confirmed reports of SpikeTV telling TNA it would not be renewing its TV deal.

The decision reportedly came a few days after SpikeTV found out that Vince Russo was still working for TNA Wrestling in a consultant capacity, and apparently Spike has had issues with Russo in the past and made it clear to TNA they wanted nothing to do with him.
