According to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Destination America has canceled Impact Wrestling. The decision was reportedly made prior to announcing that they would be moving the show from Friday to Wednesday night. Destination America is rumored to have been interested in using the out in their contract that would see all wrestling programs cease at the end of the ‘season,’ which would come at the end of the financial third quarter in September.
It’s said that existing network sponsors allegedly did not want to advertise with the show, and while the ratings were not totally disappointing, they simply haven’t been high enough to justify the cost of production.
Neither Impact Wresting or Destination America has confirmed the report, and our sources within TNA say they specifically have yet to be notified of any cancellation. We will continue to keep you posted as more news becomes available.
