Now that ROH is officially being dropped by Destination America, there are some rising concerns in TNA in regards to their television situation. Many believe that the network is ending their experiment with professional wrestling. They feel that Impact Wrestling will be canceled soon. Dixie Carter, however, is said to be working fervently to secure a new television contract with another network.

In a move that doesn't come as a shock to many, Kenny King has apparently left TNA. No details have been revealed, but he showed up at the ROH pay per view this week. His previous contract allowed him to work Impact Wrestling episodes and on independent wrestling shows that are not being televised. Showing up in Ring of Honor is a sign that he is no longer working for Total Nonstop Action.

Apparently, ROH wants a lot of international talent for their upcoming series of matches in Philadelphia and Toronto. In addition to Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada, the company has now secured the services of Tetsuya Naito. For those of you that do not remember, the veteran performer worked a couple of matches for TNA, including a handicap match against Kevin Nash on Impact Wrestling. No word yet on who he will be working with.

Reports have surfaced that Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett are working in ROH without a contract. Their deals expired, and they are sticking around on a handshake agreement. The belief is that the couple will start negotiating with TNA very soon, as negotiations with Ring of Honor have not come to fruition just yet. Plus, the real life married couple is hoping to gain a bit more exposure, which Impact Wrestling can provide since it is a national show.
