Another Sunday that means another edition of the So Far Back Sunday series, in this series we look back in time at events of the past much like other people do on Throwback Thursday. Some of you maybe looking at this post title and thinking about the decision I made a few weeks ago to remove TNA from the site. Well this is not their welcoming back party and I will address the TNA situation a later date as I don't want to bring them back to site just yet. This is just a one of deal and mostly for the purpose to give you guys an update for those who maybe curious.
This is not for the purpose to rag on TNA or poke fun at them, because their is one thing people may not understand if TNA goes out of business that is bad for me and anyone else who writes about wrestling. The reason being that it is one less company for us to deliver content on and makes it harder for us to survive as a site doing what we love to do. So for anyone who thinks internet wrestling writers want TNA to go out of business you are EXTREMELY WRONG!!!!!!!!
For the last two years the problems seem to be never ending with TNA Wrestling. Right now at the end of the year, TNA wrestling will be removed from the Spike TV line-up for the first time in 9 years which in my book is the end of an era. A couple of weeks back TNA held their last TV Tapings for Impact on Spike TV and two weeks they held Bound for Glory from Japan. I am like many who look at TNA having all these problems and them possibly going under as a very bad thing for the health of the wrestling industry, especially with Jeff Jarrett is struggling to find a TV deal for GFW in the US.
As of this writing the newest problem TNA faces is they only have enough taped shows to carry them through the middle of November because they didn't and aren't holding another taping this year. So what does that? That means that TNA there is a good chance that TNA will not hold "real" episodes of Impact for the last six weeks of the year. Right now it seems likely to imagine that TNA would hold shows over the course of the six weeks which highlight some of the feuds in TNA while they were on Spike. Whether all six weeks will be filled with recap shows is yet to be known, but as of right now it seems as though very likely that from November 19 - December 31 we will see episodes of Impact which highlight some of the best feuds in TNA history while they were on Spike TV.
Author's Note: I just want to take a quick second to wish TNA, the best of luck in the future. As once again let me repeat if they go under that doesn't help the talent, the fans or the writers one bit. So drop the act and accept the fact you might be wrong about writers.
