It’s been well known for a while that TNA has been in a world of hurt, and has been on the verge of not surviving the current climate of professional wrestling. One person who has refused to go down without a fight is Dixie Carter, who called for a conference call with all active TNA employees today.
In a move to shake up TNA and restore it back to its former glory, Carter announced the addition of Eric Nordholm of Anthem Sports & Entertainment as a new member of the board, and verified that the board will be guiding the direction of TNA from herein. She further confirmed that David Lagana and Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan are no longer with the company.
Also of note is the fact that TNA is looking into more live events. They have also stated that while they are strengthening ties with the Fight Network and their broadcast partners in India, a streaming service for TNA is not outside the realm of possibility.
Creative will also be focused on a collaborative effort with John Gaburick, Matt Conway and Madison Rayne, and they are currently looking to hire additional writers to their creative staff.
With the addition of funds provided by Anthem, and these moves, Dixie Carter is proving serious in her fight to not only keep TNA afloat, but help it thrive. But will these moves be enough to overcome the obstacles in their path, including WWE and NXT? Even if these moves are enough, are they in time to save the company, or is it too little too late?
What do you think? Will TNA be able to right their course now? Let us know what you think in the comments.
