A press release announced Billy Corgan is now president of the promotion, with Dixie Carter now in the new position of chairperson. Corgan is in charge of the company, Dixie has some nebulous future strategy role.

This follows reports that TNA did not pay their wrestlers last night, the first night of their latest run of tapings. (It's unknown if anyone else was paid.)

No one's specifically reporting the company got sold, but one of the conditions of any company was Dixie would keep a role in the company in a face saving position, and that sure looks what just happened. They've been existing from taping to taping for a while, and maybe this was just the point where they couldn't scrap enough money and had to sell to Corgan. Except, Corgan's been there for months, and must've not been offering that much if they waited to this point to sell. (Or, it's even possible Corgan himself was owed some money, TNA can't pay it, and they had no choice but to make a deal.)

Corgan's been around TNA for a while and I'm unsure how much this means for changes except for Dixie being removed from power. They've obviously made some changes in creative direction the last six months or so and it doesn't seem like they're going to go off that track. Corgan might have enough to buy the company, but he can't afford to keep losing money any more than Dixie, and there's still no obvious plan for them to turn it around. Dixie being gone, if she is gone, is a big deal, but this looks at the surface as just putting a snooze button on the death alarm and not turning it off unless there's a big money investor coming along with. (Corgan's own history running wrestling promotions is about as checkered as Dixie's.)

The End Is the Beginning Is the End.

In 2016, the supposed number two national wrestling promotion just made an Alex Jones loving MRA conspiracy theorist President. You can't make this stuff up.

About time someone took the reigns away from Dixie. The show has been very watchable as of late and I'd like to see it continue and improved upon.

TNA will never die.

At this point, I'm more likely to believe WWE will go under.

Well considering the impact (no pun intended) AJ Styles has had and the buzz Bobby ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO has generated by just showing up in NXT, this announcement makes sense considering Dixie Carter is the only home grown name on the TNA roster with name recognition.


I'm going to go with "1979", which is the total net worth of TNA.

At the time there was no real heat between RAW and SmackDown, unless you count the build to the Royal Rumble which I believe was the upcoming PPV at the time of the comments.
