After years of speculation of “impending doom” surrounding TNA, it appears as if the nail might finally be ready to go in the coffin. DailyDDT already did a recap of the latest news regarding TNA, but the gist of it is that SpikeTV has chosen to part ways with the organization once their contract ends in October.
Of course, there’s always the chance that they could pick up a deal with a different network, but considering the fact that they were already in dire straights financially, it’s not likely that they would be able to hold on to a lot of the talent that they have become known for.
Names like Kurt Angle, Bobby Lashley and Bully Ray will be the first fans gravitate towards, as noted by Jordan Campbell, but there are a few other names (none of whom have played prominent roles in WWE or WWF programming) who could make a huge impact (pun intended) if WWE ever made the decision to sign them.
While it would be unreasonable to expect them to sign all of the superstars named given the recent influx of top tier talent (KENTA, Prince Devitt and Kevin Steen, among others), even one of these 5 wrestlers would be an important piece for Vince McMahon & Co. moving forward.
