AJ Styles’ contract extension with TNA runs through December. The two sides are still negotiating to extend that deal.

Hulk Hogan’s TNA contract expired yesterday. Word is that the two sides are still negotiating a new deal, but nothing has been agreed upon as of this writing. As you can imagine, Hogan is asking for more money and creative control again.

The 9/30 WWE RAW, which drew a 2.68 (2.7) cable rating, with 3.59 million viewers, ended up as the lowest amount of viewers for the show so far in 2013. It was also the lowest amount of viewers for RAW since last December.

Despite the drop in viewers, it was not the lowest overall cable rating for the show in 2013. That came back on 6/3 when the show drew a 2.65.
