Thomas Golianopoulos of Grantland.com is featuring a lengthy article examining the business model of TNA Wrestling since the founding of the company in 2002. The article features quotes from TNA President Dixie Carter, founder Jeff Jarrett, Vince Russo, Jim Cornette, AJ Styles and many more exploring past business decisions and the future of TNA on TV in doubt.
Among the topics discussed including reports of Spike TV making the decision to not renew a television deal for Impact Wrestling and Hulk Hogan’s stint with the company, Carter addresses reports suggesting that the future of the company is in doubt directly.
“All these people say, ‘I hope you go out of business’ — why would you ever want that? You don’t think we make wrestling better just by exposing more people and giving people more options? It’s the most ludicrous, shortsighted thing — the sheer absurdity and stupidity of it blows my mind. I feel sorry for the wrestling business if we’re not around.”
