Earlier in the year, the belief was that Kenny King had abruptly left TNA and returned to ROH. Well, the former X Division Champion has been announced as a participant in the World Title Series, which is where the promotion is going to crown their top champion in a couple of weeks. Reports have surfaced that King is working out a deal with both promotions that would allow him to wrestle simultaneously for them.

The likelihood of Kazuchika Okada ever making a return to TNA appears to be very slim. During a recent interview, the New Japan and ROH star revealed his feelings about the company. He felt that management held him back from being able to wrestle. Okada simply wanted to put on some performances to a new fan base. It appears that he will continue to just work for Ring of Honor when he is in the United States.

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.

It is unfortunate for wrestling fans in the Untied States that promoters here are unable to figure out how to get dual contracts so that performers can work in multiple places. In Japan, Kota Ibushi was the first person to do just that, as he was under contract with New Japan and a promotion called DDT. Companies like ROH, GFW and TNA would receive quite a boost from the talent exchange.

Rumors have surfaced that one of the reasons why a contract between WWE and Destination America has not been reached yet is the time slot.

During a recent interview, Rob Van Dam revealed some rather interesting details about his business relationship with WWE.

While it will not cause as much panic and paranoia as bad news on TNA, ROH has lost one of their time slots on Destination America. The network decided to only air the later showing due to dropping numbers. Ring of Honor had done tremendously in the first four weeks, but the numbers started dropping as of late. Joe Koff told his performers that the network was trying out different shows.

During a recent interview, Ric Flair shared his feelings on TNA and ROH, stating that both companies are not a factor when it comes to being competition for WWE.

While it is still much too soon to accurately judge, it seemingly appears that Joe Koff and Dixie Carter signing on with Destination America is a good move. Both TNA and ROH saw an increase in viewership this week. A lot of fans are drawn to the idea that they can get a ton of wrestling all in the same night.
