In regards to some talks that TNA was looking at a name change when Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff were brought in (a discussion that has been on and off the last few years), The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that when Frank Dickerson was first brought into the company that he also wanted a name change. Eventually a decision was made all the way back in 2005 when they debuted on Spike to keep the name since, in their eyes, it was already established in wrestling. Vince Russo originally came up with th ename when the company wanted to be as risque as possible. Dixie Carter is said to be very loyal to the TNA brand name.
