TNA TV Title Vacated; New Champion To Be Crowned Thursday

TNA Wrestling announced on Wednesday the TV Championship has been vacated due to negotiations with Devon breaking off. Below is their official statement:

NEW TV CHAMPION TO BE CROWNED ON CHAMPIONSHIP THURSDAY!\

“Championship Thursday” returns to Impact Wrestling on Spike TV this Thursday with an added wrinkle; there is no defending champion. Negotiations between TNA’s current TV Champion Devon and TNA have been ongoing over the last month and have reached an impasse. As of today, The TNA TV Championship last held by Devon is vacated. TNA hopes that Devon returns to the active roster in the future. A new TV champion will be crowned LIVE on Impact!

Usually, in the “Championship Thursday” format, four challengers meet with IMPACT WRESTLING GM Hulk Hogan and plead their case as to why they deserve the shot at the champion. This month, one of the four men is guaranteed to be the new TV Champion! The challengers selected to compete in this “Championship Thursday” are Samoa Joe, Garett Bischoff, Magnus and Mr. Anderson. Hulk will hear these men’s arguments why they should be the one to get the title shot and then Hogan will make the hard decision of which two will face off. Tune into Spike TV at 8pt/7ct this Thursday night to see a new champion crowned.

    Why not have a Fatal Four Way or can't the writers/bookers figure out how to put together a match like that?

  • Ralphus

    They might as well get rid of that prop altogether!

  • smithmiester

    I’d have Magnus vs Anderson. Bout time they started pushing Magnus. And it’s about time they put the heavyweight title around Samoa joes waist

  • tngbeard

    Watch Devon make his return tonight and heel on them all. LOL

    • Mike Gilreath

      He will re appear in aces and eights…which had great potential and I enjoyed but has now become silly and non revelate in record time

  • Bishop

    So it’s a job interview?

  • Jbhc

    Surprised it’s not a belt on a pole match

  • Evon Reese

    I just wish Hogan would shave that nasty beard or dye it all one color. That's one of the ugliest things I've ever seen and it just looks nasty. It looks like shi$ smeared all over his jaw bone.

  • Msuth

    Hopefully they put it in Magnus! He’d be a great champ

  • Jordan

    Well if EB has his way we’d better get ready for the reign of Garrett Bischoff as TV Champion :(

  • Thebigbowboskie

    Hope Magnus gets the belt
