Default Challenge UK Dropping TNA

http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/7699...tling#/slide/1

So TNA is down to Sony Six, POP TV and the Fight Network. And loses the only market where they could ever reliably sell tickets.

TNA at this point has become the beloved family dog that's lost the use of its legs and has gone blind and deaf yet everybody refuses to take to the vet to put it out of its misery

Challenge isn't that big of a TV station in the UK, in all truth. But TNA might have been the only thing on it that they were churning out new episodes of. I guess that TNA just seems like too much of a risk right now because I always thought it did decent numbers for them. Maybe Challenge are dropping TNA before the inevitable liquidation comes and they have already put money into it? Who knows. Either way, it seems as though it is a bigger loss to TNA than it is to Challenge right now.

TNA sound as though they have something else lined up though. If it was one of the terrestrial channels in the UK, they might teach a whole new audience. We shall wait and see.

If they could get on BBC 3 (which is an online only channel now) it might surprisingly do well but I doubt it ebcause A. BBC are run by old conservative guys and 2. I doubt TNA has the competence to go for something like that. They'd probably end up on Moviemix or some crap

There's perhaps more to this.... World Of Sport is returning to TV soon on ITV for a special... there seems to suddenly be some appetite for wrestling on the biggest channels. BBC have done a lot of documentaries in recent years, covering ICW, Finn Balor's last days in Japan and NXT at Download... ITV being a commercial station have that lead in to the X-Factor etc... Wrestling would be a perfect Saturday tea-time/early evening show, much as Gladiators once was... provided they don't dumb it down like they tried a few years ago with Celebrity Wrestling...

It's only a special at this stage, but if it does well then it's not beyond the realms that there will be a return to some form of televised regular wrestling, probably not live... but it's not inconceivable.

Challenge might be freeing up funds to be involved in making that show... ITV probably won't throw tonnes of money at it, maybe enough for one "big name" but much as now The Fight Network are part of running TNA, Challenge could easily invest a bit into the infrastructure of the new World Of Sport venture...or whichever fed is actually running the shows... but they can't do that if they're throwing funds at TNA, who may well be gone anyway, leaving them with no product.

Wrestling on TV in the UK is gonna be British again in one way or another, if ITV don't want the whole show/season, Challenge will easily take it and do well from it.

I love the explanation for this from TNA. They are blaming the spoilers getting out. Im sorry but when you Tape so much TV at a time which is WEEKS IN ADVANCE what do you think is going to happen? This is 2016 going into 2017 and there's a thing called the Internet. I know there has to be more to it but i just laughed out loud when i read that.

When Challenge notices your 2016 production values are pissed all over by Bullseye....AND your compute graphics make Mr Chips on the Catchphrase re-reuns look cutting edge, then you can see why TNA got shit-canned by Challenge.

Although Gold could always use the old episodes of TNA as a kind of mad-cap replacement for Noels House Party (from TNA's random appearance/disappearance period)

Ha... It's good but it's not right lol...

I think they have a legit shot at being on the ground floor of bringing proper UK wrestling back... tainting themselves with a sinking ship any longer than they have to will reduce credibility... TNA is now a millstone for them rather than a help. At worst case, if they did their own show... they already have good relationships with a lot of TNA talent... who will be looking for UK work outside of TNA. Give TNA that money or give it direct to talents like Magnus to get the ball rolling? Seems a no brainer to me.

Yeah, I mean, what can be said here that hasn't been said a thousand times already? Another revenue stream for a cash-strapped company struggling to pay their debts and their own wrestlers goes under and we're supposed to find a silver lining? There isn't one. This isn't good. Nothing is going good right now for TNA. Nothing.

I think the Brit fans are seeing a silver lining because they think Challenge will take the money they were paying TNA and launch a UK promotion. I don't think Challenge was paying TNA enough to support a promotion, but I dunno.
