    So it seems for better or worse… TNA and SpikeTV are going to be partners for a long, long time.

      for worse imo

      I've always wanted them to leave Spike (market-cap is too low), but I'm going to take the glass half-full for a moment.

      We don't know the terms of their Spike deal. That's important. Spike may be offsetting some of the road losses their currently incurring (not likely all of it, but there's a good possibility they're offsetting some). They're also giving TNA additional promotion through the use of Bellator stars. Yes, it works both ways, but that's a good thing.

      Additionally, there's a possibility Spike is helping them negotiate their area fees. Hey, if TNA & Bellator go to the same location, why not try to get a lower rate?

      Finally, if Spike/Bellator can build TNA, it will help them land a better network in the future (or at least a more lucrative Spike deal).

      Until then – we're looking at the low 1s. Crap – there goes my glass-half-full mentality!

        some very good points well made.

        i think with ratings tho the way wrestling is atm with the lack of interest in wrestling. more ratings would mean more ppl are watching wrestling. which i dont see happening. same sort of goes for wwe. tho they could do a lot more for wrestling as a whole but dont.
