TNA Officially Vacates TV Championship; New Champion To Be Crowned Thursday

TNA Wrestling announced Wednesday that the Television Championship last held by Devon has been vacated after negotiations between both parties reached an impasse.

A new Television Champion will be crowned on tomorrow night’s “Championship Thursday” edition of Impact Wrestling. The challengers selected to compete are Samoa Joe, Garett Bischoff, Magnus, and Mr. Anderson. The four grapplers will plead their case on why they should receive a shot at the Television Title to Impact Wrestling General Manager Hulk Hogan, who will then set up a match on Impact.

TNA’s official announcement is as follows:


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.

    Have a king of the mountain match that way you bring some intrest to the title and you can bring that match back to a impact which would be a first time ever and be a shocker. As for vacating the title how come earlier in the week it was said devon would appear to lose the title now he isnt even coming?

    This is really stupid, just have a fatal 4 way instead of wasting time with dumb segments

  • Sorry did not see hogan would choose 2 of 4 but still why all of them can’t fight at once.

  • Sam Peters

    Samoa joe vs Magnus

  • Title shot? why can’t they all just have a fatal 4 way match and decide the champion instead of telling hogan why they should be champion where he would eliminate 3 of them. Hopefully magnus will win the tv championship as I think he is a good fit for the title.

    Thats a horrible idea. Have a tournament or a reverse battle royal and have the first 2 or 4 to enter the ring have a match. The kissing Hogans ass segments are stupid.


    samoa joe cool give him something tpo do n a bit of a push magnus aite this could b the start of his push n he most likely will face joe to become champ n to get that rivarly started mr anderson decent just n there off his name along GARRETT BISCHOFF #RUFKM seriously why is he in there put doug williams hell gunner shark boy anybody else wood b better than GB
