– Early this morning, Viacom and Time-Warner reached an accord in their contractual negotiations, insuring that SpikeTV, which carries UFC and TNA programming, and the rest of Viacom’s family of cable networks, would remain airing on Time-Warner cable systems. That collection of networks includes CMT, which aired the first season of ’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling and has had at least early discussions with about additional professional wrestling programming.

– Jeff Wilen of the Daytona Beach News-Journal has TNA’s official statement regarding the movie “The Wrestler”. Unlike WWE’s statement earlier this week, TNA simply praises the film for giving wrestling some mainstream attention, and points out the incredible performance by Mickey Rourke. Here’s their statement: “We’re happy to see professional wrestling in the mainstream spotlight through the movie ‘The Wrestler.’ Mickey Rourke’s performance is nothing short of sensational; Mickey Rourke is the movie. His portrayal of an over-the-hill wrestler struggling to find his own meaning in life has already been talked about as Oscar-worthy, and rightfully so.”
