Is TNA Impact Wrestling For Sale?; Dixie Carter Responds To Reports

Over the past few months, TNA Wrestling has made some major changes to their business. Some of these changes have included not resigning/letting go of some talent, changing the number of pay-per-view events per year, and bringing Impact Wrestling back to Universal Studios in Orlando, FL (rather than touring across the country). With all of these moves, most considered “cost cutting,” reports have surfaced that TNA Wrestling was suffering and was put up for sale by the Carter family.

TNA Wrestling President Dixie Carter is featured in an interview with Nate Rau of The Tennessean, and she addresses the reports of TNA Wrestling being up for sale. Carter also discusses the reports that Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan showed interest in either purchasing or investing in the company itself.

“Since we have been in business going on 12 years now, this has been an ongoing (speculation), ‘Oh, we’re going out of business. We’re not going to make it.’ Ever since we started, people were taking odds on how long we would last. This last time I think a lot if it was perpetuated by a story that Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins was going to buy it. I texted Billy and I said, ‘Oh really, so you’re going to buy my company? Are you excited? That’s cool.’ And he said, ‘Oh, don’t you love rumors’.”

  • Wrestling is fake

    Well the way it is going now I wouldn’t be surprised if Vince offered to buy it

  • cj

    I hope Vince doesn’t buy it. It’ll be great to see aome of the TNA guys mix it up with the WWE guys tho. I just hope they don’t try to re-do the Invasion angle if Vince were to ever purchase .

    • Guest

      They wouldn’t because TNA is non-existent. WCW at least beat WWE in ratings at one point lol

    • Jerihoar
