That show was dropped in favor of rebroadcasts of Ghost Asylum, which was believed to be a stronger lead-in. Ghost Asylum has done stronger numbers in the slot.

– Grado was in Orlando last week and is expected to return to TNA TV in the near future.

Eric Bischoff Sues TNA For Breach Of Contract

Source: Prowrestling.net

Eric Bischoff, his son Garret and Jason Hervey have filed a lawsuit against TNA for breach of contract. The suit was filed on May 15th in Davidson County, Tennessee and claims that the company owes them $114,500.02.

Eric Bischoff and Hervey are listed under their production company that they co-own, alleging that they were hired on a “pay or play” deal. The two (along with Garret) state that TNA made payments to them in a timely manner until the end of September and that Bischoff-Hervey Entertainment notified TNA of a breach in the contract on November 4th due to a failure to pay their October payment. A second notice was issued on November 24th. TNA eventually payed $101,500 at some point before January 1st, but the company is seeking the same amount for the final three months of their contract, as it expired on March 31st.

Garret Bischoff was originally part of the company’s first agreement with the company and he signed his own separate contract with TNA on October 24th. His deal included $2,166.67 monthly on a “pay or play” deal along with $500 for paid performances. His deal also expired on March 21st; he claims that TNA still owes him $13,000.02 out of the deal.

TNA reportedly issued a response on January 12th claiming that they had paid BHE in full, a claim that BHE disagrees with. BHE’a attorney Bryan Lewis told TNA’s lawyer, “When the money was sent, you did not make it clear whether it was in connection with the settlement offer that was on the table or a reinstatement by TNA,” reads the letter from Lewis. “TNA did not make a request that BHE perform services when the money was sent…[BHE] stands ready, willing, and able to perform under the agreement in the event TNA is reinstating that agreement.”

RUMOR: Destination America Cancels TNA iMPACT!

What this means is unclear following the show’s move to Wednesday, but according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Destination America made the decision to cancel Impact Wrestling last week. The decision was reportedly made a few days before the announcement that the show was moving to Wednesday and according to the site, those who were informed of the cancellation (including key people at Destination America and Dixie Carter) have not been informed of anything different as of several days after the Wednesday move was announced.

The decision at the time was made to have the show end at the end of the third quarter, or sometime around the last week of September. While Destination America considered the ratings to be good, they did not justify the price that the network is paying out for the show. Several regular Destination America advertisers have specifically expressed a desire not to advertise on Impact. Destination America is known to react quickly to ratings and they’ve dropped nearly every other TNA show except when needed as time fillers. There was hope that going nearly live on May 8th would help with bringing a big number and the network bought an ad in USA Today promoting the show. However that episode did the show’s second-lowest number on the network, a situation not helped by the fact that it was up against the NBA playoffs.

The decision was meant to be kept a secret, similar to how Spike tried to keep their cancellation of Impact quiet last year because it won’t help the remaining episodes of the show if the decision goes public. It was expected that the announcement would be made around the time that it listed its primetime lineup for next season.

While Dixie Carter was made aware of the decision early last week, it seems that most of the talent didn’t know. Carter has yet to respond to any questions about the issue.

Obviously this is a developing story and a lot is uncertain — most importantly, whether the decision to cancel the show or not still stands with the move to Wednesday. When we have more, we’ll let you know.
