TNA has shut down their Television title. It was announced on ImpactWrestling.com that Executive Director Kurt Angle was declaring the title inactive, declaring that the roster should aim for “higher levels.”
Angle said, “The TV Title was left dormant by the Dixie Carter and MVP administrations for over a year. Taking over as Executive Director has required me to fix issues they left behind. Championships are the reward of competition inside the ring between wrestlers striving to be the best. As of now, the TV Title is inactive. I’m looking for our roster to step up their level of competition and wrestle on a higher level for the World Heavyweight, X-Division, Knockout and World Tag Team Championships.”
The belt was won by Abyss at Slammiversary last year on June 2nd and was not ever defended. His reign ends at 393 days.
