NEWS TNA in serious trouble

Discussion in 'GENERAL CHATTING' started by The Dovah, Oct 13, 2016.

  1. TNA:Impact isn't quite the best at staying on it's feet and for the past 6 years, they've been well, a bit crap but despite all the HOAK HOGAN BS and their general money issues, they have managed to pull through. Until last month. Bound for Glory barely managed to happen and now, Billy Corgan seems to be suing TNA and Dixie Carter.

    Godddamnit, Dixie. This can kill the company off and it is only just got back on it's feet. Apparently, there is a massive power struggle in the company and it seems to be about Dixie Carter decieving Billy Corgan or going behind his back to find a third bidder thus invalidating their agreement.

    Either way, TNA is fucked. Double F U C K E D. :( THey literally can't afford a lawsuit and well, the entire roster is said to be behind Corgan. We may see the unglorious deletion of TNA.

    WWE has dropped out of the sale and apparently, it was Bucky Beaver Kevin Dunn's pal that got WWE involved because he was looking to save his own arse. *facepalm*

    This is why TNA is considered a joke.

    So what are your thoughts on TNA's current issues and what do you think will happen?

    Please no WWE buying it just so 2k can use them in the games posts. Tis about TNA's issues.

  2. I'm a bit sad about it, I enjoyed having that wrestling company that said fuck pg. I mean I get why it's going downhill. They tried restoring it with a storyline that wasn't so good and then went a bit crazy with more bizarre ones. Pretty much pulling a dying WCW, I honestly will miss it as it was more risqué with its story and wrestling.
  3. What's worse is, unlike a dying WCW that was pretty much a corpse after HOAK HOGAN and pals turned it into their playground thus losing in the end because they didn't build new stars, TNA built a ton of stars. :( They lost all their originals apart from Abyss and I suspect it's due to Dixie Carter refusing to give them a raise or pay them a fair price for what they had done for the company whilst paying the likes of HOAK HOGAN thousands per episode and other guests thousands per appearance.

    Apparently, Dixie owes Corgan money personally and that messing with the bloke who composed most of the roster's entrance songs was a bad idea. Who would have thought that messing with your composer and co-owner was a bad idea?

    But yeah, TNA literally can't use most of it's entrances if what i've heard is true. I hope Dixie sells to Corgan as he has a good idea of how to delete TNA's bad reputation and reboot it into something wonderful. I think under his leadership, we will get a strong alternative to WWE and one that isn't hampered by PG.(I think). THat and unlike WWE, TNA doesn't need a "woman's revolution." As their knockouts division has always been the strongest in women's wrestling.

    But sadly, I can see Dixie shutting down TNA or finding a way to sell it to Meekman behind everyone's back just to spite Corgan as she is just that petty.
  4. Wrestling, in general, seems to be on the downside. I don't know about other locations, but when I worked at the local venue, the WWE came through with one of the live TV shows. It was the worst selling show for the venue in the history of the WWE. We spent hours covering up all the empty seats with black curtain material so that people watching on TV didn't see all the empty seats.

    People are gravitating more towards MMA and things that are actually real. I think the WWE is shooting itself in the foot. I don't really care to explain why, but with real combat sports gaining more popularity, it seems the WWE is slowly fading.

    Since the WWE is the most widely known wrestling promotion, I'm not really surprised by the downfall of the smaller Promotions.

  5. Watching the whole TNA thing and this makes me kind of sad and all. Despite I only started watching TNA again for the wacky and bizarre broken matt thing. It was the kind of story that despite it's bizarre, they went through with their fullest and made me care about it.

    I only hope that TNA can survive this without Dixie making a real petty business call.
  6. To be fair, Wrestling barely gets shown to the mainstream audience. Over here, we have TNA as the only free source of wrestling on tv. WWE, you need to buy a sports package and well, it airs early morning thus not really suitable for anyone that has to work etc.. MMA tends to be easier to access and well, WWE kinda is a bit crap at times. Along with being too PG. They push one superstar and try to force him onto the audience thus pushes away the audience. They often do/did stuff like this and I feel that is a major cause. WWE is pretty much the only organisation that gets lots of outlets. ROH, internet only(i think), Lucha Underground, Obscure. TNA is the only other company that is on TV regularly.

    TNA owes a lot of cash to the state of Tennese and their production company is also suing them. Even ECW didn't manage to achieve this amount of debt and if ECW has less debt then you, you are a rubbish person in business.

    Sadly, TNA's main issues are caused by Dixie Carter and her being a wannabe Meekman. Oh and she hired most of the people involved with the death of WCW. Here's a tip: If someone caused the death of WCW, don't hire them. If the freaking network flat out tells you to not hire them or risk being kicked off, don't hire them! Seriously, Vince Russo? The bloke known for "Shocking Swerves, bro." On a pole matches, known for bad ideas and a main cause of WCW going down the drain? Seriously?

    At the rate TNA is going, it won't be the quality(Which they have improved a lot) that ends them but the same thing that killed ECW. Debts. ECW owed millions, i think and it was Paul Heyman that was the main cause of the organisation's issues.

    Only, unlike TNA, ECW did everything it could to try to stay afloat and Paul Heyman was just bad at business. Think he admitted it at some point. TNA, Dixie Carter is bad at business and often regarded as an awful boss who doesn't understand wrestling to the point where it's surprising she hasn't been sued by a lot of talent for screwing them over in various ways.

    If TNA does die, it could end any and all chances of other organisations getting on TV because of TNA. :(
