I didn’t start this blog to talk about wrestling news. There’s all kinds of places for that kind of stuff and I find backstage rumors and their ilk my least favorite part of following wrestling. Sometimes there is something worth talking about though, and today some news dropped that was big enough to change today’s post from being about NXT to being about a promotion I never talk about: TNA.
It was announced this morning that the cable channel Destination America, the channel in which TNA Impact airs, has also bought the syndication rights for Ring of Honor’s weekly show, and will be airing it before Impact on Wednesdays. This is the biggest wrestling news since the WWE Network was officially announced, and is full of implications. On the outside, this seems great. More wrestling to more televisions is never bad, and Wednesday has suddenly become the best night of wrestling on TV with ROH, Impact, NXT, and Lucha Underground all airing. People who watch Ring of Honor might stick around for Impact, and people who watch Impact might turn in early for Ring of Honor. Win/Win, right? Maybe not.
