As many of you already know, there are rumors floating around that Destination America is going to be canceling all TNA programming before the end of the year. Many within the industry are highly critical of the network for not releasing information on the matter. Jim Ross feels that it insensitive and unprofessional for them to keep so many wrestlers and their families in the dark. They need to know what the future holds, so they can prepare for it.

Jim Ross might be heading back to the commentating booth in the near future, but it is not what professional wrestling fans had been hoping for. Instead of going back to WWE or joining TNA, the legendary announcer is currently in negotiations with Golden Boy Promotions. The two sides are discussing a permanent role as a boxing commentator. Ross has done it before, but it was essentially a one time deal back then.

When Tara left TNA, there was a feeling that there was some backstage heat between she and the company. Not a lot of details were leaked back then. That has changed now. During a podcast interview with Jim Ross, she revealed that she has a ton of backstage heat towards Dixie Carter. The veteran performer was upset that the company did not acknowledge the extra work she did with promotions when they were in Chicago.

It appears that there might be some backstage heat between Josh Mathews, who is now the lead commentator for TNA, and Jim Ross. The two of them engaged in an awkward discussion through social media about UFC going up against the NFL on Sunday night. Mathews took a jab at Ross for being old and instructed him to walk away from the limelight. Ross even noted that he was not expecting such comments from Mathews.

It looks like Dixie Carter has changed her mind about wanting to be associated with Jim Ross. It was rumored earlier than the TNA president had denied Ross the opportunity to interview her on his podcast show. A lot of ears are going to be on this particular episode, since many are wondering if Ross will be asking Carter about the situation with Jeff Jarrett being denied the opportunity to hire Mike Tenay to be a commentator at the GFW pay per view.

Apparently, Jim Ross is not very popular with the folks in TNA. First, the company rejects him when he tried to sign Mike Tenay to be his commentating partner at the first GFW pay per view in Japan next month. Now, the legendary commentator has been rejected by Dixie Carter, who declined to do a podcast interview with Ross. The belief is that Carter did not want to be placed in a situation, where she would be asked about rejecting the Tenay deal.

Once Mike Tenay was forced to turn down their offer because TNA officials reportedly felt that it was a conflict of interest, Jeff Jarrett looked at other candidates to join Jim Ross during the first GFW pay per view taking place in Japan next month. Several candidates were interviewed, and one of which really stood out above the rest. Kevin Nash was said to have been in discussion for the commentating job, but his focus right now is on Hollywood.

The very first GFW pay per view will be taking place in a couple of weeks, so Jeff Jarrett has been working diligently to find a broadcasting partner for Jim Ross. They attempted to get Mike Tenay, but TNA turned that down because they do not want their employees to help out competing promotions. Jarrett and Ross then turned to Matt Striker, an underrated talker that was released from WWE back in June of 2013 when his contract expired.

As many of you are already aware, Jim Ross will be providing commentary at the first GFW pay per view, which is taking place in Japan on January 4, 2015. Jeff Jarrett gave him a good amount of freedom in choosing who would join him at the table that night. He chose Mike Tenay. Ross contacted TNA to see if they would allow him to work the event, in exchange for free advertising during the pay per view, but management turned him down.
