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. The network would obviously love to open up their Thursday night wrestling block with the most popular promotion, as it would draw viewers to TNA and ROH. However, Vince McMahon is not very keen on the idea of helping out his competition.

While the company will never come out and admit it, WWE is letting upcoming wrestlers know that they will lose an opportunity to be signed if they decide to go through TNA or ROH first.

TNA wasn't the only wrestling promotion finalizing a new television deal in Italy this week. Vince McMahon did so as well. He has secured a contract that will enable WWE to keep broadcasting their programming in that country until the year 2020. The promotion has been with Sky Italia since 2003. The network stated that the business partnership between the two sides have been mutually beneficial and should continue on for years.

From the moment that Dixie Carter revealed the big secret meeting earlier today, fans have been speculating like crazy on what Steve Austin has planned. The belief is that the two of them discussed business, which means that the former world heavyweight champion might be heading to TNA.

While he would never admit it publicly, it is being said that Vince McMahon is keeping a very close eye on the upcoming tour of China that TNA is embarking on in a couple of weeks. WWE has long been trying to figure out ways of expanding their live events business into Asia.

For years now, WWE has largely neglected Samoa Joe. Now, rumors have it that he is finally joining the company. The reason for the change is a simple one. Triple H is now calling some of the shots. He is the one that expressed interest in bringing Joe on board. Kevin Dunn and Vince McMahon are still not sold on the former TNA star being able to be an asset on the main roster, but HHH is going to try to convince them otherwise.

Since he made an appearance as Bubba Ray during the Royal Rumble, a lot of fans are under the assumption that Mark LoMonaco is officially back with WWE on a full time basis. Some are even ruling out the possibility of a return to TNA. That is not the case at all. Vince McMahon has yet to make him an offer, and there is a chance it might not happen at all. If the money is right, then he could sign with Dixie Carter and bring back the Bully Ray character.

During a recent interview, Dixie Carter was asked about comments that Vince McMahon recently made about his roster lacking ambition. In a very well thought out public relations response, Carter stated that she cannot comprehend a statement like that. She stated that she is very proud of every single wrestler in TNA. She feels that there is plenty of hunger from the performers. Several WWE stars are said to be upset about what McMahon said about them.
