Before Isrs runs in thinking this story: http://www.wrestleview.com/tna-news/504 ... -wrestling

To be the saving grace of TNA, it's just a rumor at this point and I'm not so sure this Velocity network would be a very viable option to keep TNA afloat, considering they'd be down to less than half of American homes.

It'd be enough to keep them out of bankruptcy for a while, but not enough that they'd be at all viable.

I'm curious if the current big name talent have opt-out clauses in their contracts or early termination. That way they can sign on with different places.

Destination America is the new home of Impact. Apparently, that's not a made-up channel.

According to Wikipedia:
Destination America is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by Discovery Communications. The channel features lifestyle, historical and travel programming focusing on the culture of the United States.
The station began its life as Discovery Travel & Living, so... yeah.

Have to figure the expected ratings are low. This also can't possibly be anywhere close to Spike money.

I used to watch that channel, they had this...entertaining show where this guy would go to and talk about different fast food joints and another show where a guy would go and talk about different meat based foods, one show was all about bacon and another was on beef.

You can see, the quality of their programming isn't the best. Except that all bacon show they had. It was awesome.
