One of the first items that was discussed was the recurring theme that talent was being paid later than scheduled. Carter said that the reason for this is because TNA is owed money, and cannot pay the talent until that money comes in.
Carter also addressed the recent reports that WWE was close to purchasing the promotion. She said that she would never let WWE purchase TNA, and that they still own the rights to their entire video library.
However, she did acknowledge that there was a power struggle amongst the various owners of the company.
The reports that “Bound For Glory” might have been cancelled were also addressed. Carter explained that although there was never a doubt as to whether or not the pay-per-view would happen, she did say that they were “scrambling” leading up to the event.
According to the report, Carter was surprised that everyone was so worried about the future of the company. She apologized for there being so much concern about the status of the company amongst the talent.
The meeting was said to have elevated the morale in the locker room, and that Carter earned respect for addressing the various elephants in the room. However, there is still concern as to where the company will be following the conclusion of filming for the year.
TNA president Billy Corgan was not present at the meeting. He declined to attend.
While I’m glad that Carter did this, we’ve seen this story over and over again. I still feel it’s only a matter of time before the fairy tale will be over and TNA will be out of business for good. This is a shame, because I feel that there is a great deal of talent in that promotion.
