Credit: http://www.angrymarks.com/news/View.php?ArticleID=1043 Mike Johnson over at PWInsider.com is confirming that TNA Wrestling and Spike TV are still in negotiations. There is still discussion about expanding TNA Impact's timeslot. There is also the possiblity of adding another TNA program to the line-up, possibly a weekly wrap-up show similar to what UFC has done. He is also confirming that there is interest in TNA Wrestling from two other networks. One unnamed major network which has never aired wrestling before, and the other being the new upstart MyNetworkTV. MyNetworkTV launched last September and immediately filled the void created when UPN and WB networks formed to create the CW Network, which left many TV stations without an affiliate in markets that had both stations. MyNetworkTV also carries the new International Fight League program "IFL Battleground", Mondays at 8pm ET. Scott D'Amore is in a little bit of hot water. I haven't been able to confirm this 100% yet myself, but apparently Scott D'Amore was backstage at WrestleMania this past weekend, and some people in TNA are not happy about it. D'Amore is claiming that TNA officials knew he would be there to visit with friends and family of "The Sheik" Ed Farhat, a man that was very important in D'Amore's early years in the business. However, some people in TNA feel that D'Amore has put a black eye on TNA's reputation by being at a WWE show. More on this as I get confirmation.
