Is this the beginning of TNA's rise to the top?
Things are finally looking up for Impact Wrestling.
– TNA has indeed been a big wrestling promotion but has never attained the heights of the WWE. In the late 2000s, TNA had a great roster including the likes of Sting, Hulk Hogan, the Dudley Boyz and the Hardy Boyz, but could not capitalise on them to break the ceiling as predicted.
These days, major superstars such as AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, La Sombra and others working other independent promotions have signed with the WWE. There were certain rumours about a breakdown between TNA and the featured network – POP TV – and also a talk of shifting the TV tapings to India which has been a huge market for pro wrestling.
PWInsider reports that TNA is now looking out for outside investors. Dixie Carter has been visiting Los Angeles over the past few days to tie up some investors for the wrestling company.
John Gaburick from TNA has confirmed to the PWInsider that they were looking at investors and had several strategic meetings to plan what’s next. They have been looking to tie up with several global companies and investment firms.
He also revealed that Dixie Carter has been going to Los Angeles for these meetings and has been frequently travelling to New York to identify new investors. More money could mean more big name talents in TNA, which could be the start of something big for the troubled promotion.
