    Ever since they got rid of Damore it's clear that they won't be around for much longer. All that shit they put out about investing was fluff.

      The TNA rebrand was a clear last ditch desperation attempt by Scott. Anthem probably told them to get results by 2025 or else, but Anthem doesn't want to invest significant money just like Sinclair.

      D'Amore's TNA was boring as frick. It was stable in terms of booking and production, and talent wasn't disrespected like in the Dixie era but come on... it wasn't good. It had zero hot angles. No one wanted D'Amore and Tommy Dreamer vs Bully Ray.

      Scott's problem was not that Anthem wouldn't give him a bigger budget. More money would not have made his version of Impact/TNA better. They were never going to outbid WWE and Tony Khan. They needed to present a different type of wrestling show in order to stand out, and Scott was not the guy for that vision.

      Anthem probably turned down his bid to buy THE company because they think they can get more if they sell it to WWE.

        IMO there were a few possible directions they could have taken with Impact/TNA to stand out:

        A southern style rasslin show, more loudmouths, more brawling, more like Corgan's NWA but trying to find wrestlers who aren't the drizzling shits. Needs to feel kinda trashy. More hardcore stuff. Make it feel like Jarrett's run in the Asylum.

        More overt Lucha vibes for the X Division. Lean on AAA luchadores to warm up the crowd. Grab a few young guys to wear cheap hoods and bump for them.

        Make the Knockouts the centerpiece of the show. ONLY to capitalize on Jordynne Grace and her WWE crossover. She's their Chyna. Find the new Awesome Kong to be her rival. Feed her big b***hes that she can bodyslam.

        Throw money at Josh Barnett and just let him turn the men's division into Bloodsport. Don't do boring MMA but more like freakshow fights with a 90s UFC feel. Meatheads vs martial artists. Utilize AXS TV and Fight Network connections and try to get MMA crossovers.

        Those are the only styles that would stand out.

        • 3 weeks ago

          One other thing: stop touring, find a TV studio and make it the new Asylum/Impact Zone. Impact crowds are AWFUL.

          They already have a studio in Nashville. Invest in bright colors, lights and some LED screens. Make it pop. If they can, go live every Thursday night, if it's too expensive, try to tape every 2 weeks.
          Run their PLEs at places like the ECW Arena, Center Stage, Vegas casinos, Cicero Stadium.

        That's what you need to rebuild a brand. It needs to be palatable and stable for a long time to build partner and consumer confidence. I think Scott made it pretty clear that he was about to turn a corner now that he had established some consistency and do more right before he was ousted, but we'll never reallt know.

    As much as we like to say wrestling is in a new boom period, people will only want to watch a few companies.

    I can see Impact going to WWE just for their library alone. Who knows how long Billy Corgan’s NWA will go on for (I can see Tony K buying it as he’s a territory mark).

    Japanese companies I can see being worse. Would not be surprised if Bushiroad or CyberAgent buys NJPW or NOAH and merges them with each other. Hell, maybe they’ll even get AJPW too.

          this would make sense were it not for the fact that NXT has a soon-to-be network TV deal with the CW. And the CW paid for the NXT brand, not the TNA brand. It's almost like WWE would use TNA's TV-ready talents to beef up the CW presentation, and in return, TNA becomes the new version of "LVL Up" to NXT on CW: lower level NXT people go on an excursion to Impact.

          But even in that scenario, its WWE doing TNA a massive favor for increased exposure with no immediate monetary reward for them. And paying Anthem to license the TNA library isn't enough incentive.

          I could see:
          Anthem sells TNA (copyrights and tape library and wrestler contracts) to WWE
          WWE rolls TNA contracts into NXT deals.
          Younger prospects get prepped for NXT on the CW; old TNA vets get bought out with a 90 day severance or renegotiate to be low level player-coaches
          Anthem still to be the broadcast home for "TNA Impact" on AXS TV and the Fight Network Canada & International; Anthem gets a payout from WWE and then immediately pays back WWE with a license fee for the TV shows.
          TNA Impact is now TNA in name only; its pre-taped, taped from the PC, mainly young NIL trainees + low level guys from TNA acting as player coaches. Show is padded out with clips & highlights of WWE stars in their TNA days.
          Its basically what NXT UK's TV show was to NXT

            That doesn't make any sense and has nothing to do with Vince. TNA is a dead brand with no value to a company that can easily create a new C level show on a relevant network. TNA is dead under WWE, nor is anyone going to give TNA a chance on TV if it isn't owned by the company that already owns the channel - the same company that presumably want to get rid of wrestling, if not its entire existence.

    In theory, if TK knew of industry rumours of Anthem's interest, he should've been on that right away since it conveniently comes at a time for his own company's re-negotiations, and that tape library is quite useful.

    But, I think it's too late if WWE is already involved. I'd think it's pretty much a done deal and TNA won't be around much longer thereafter. WWE doesn't need it to survive. They have their own tv brands, and TNA isn't even nearly as popular to keep it around.

      The thing is, if Anthem decides to off-load TNA, what does that mean for AXS TV and Fight Network for them? Anthem wants to gain a bigger foothold into US and Canadian cable TV; TNA was the biggest IP that they outright owned. If they sell it, then they don't have anything to sell their channels beyond D-level MMA and some boomer rock concerts. The cable carriage fees would get even worse for them and it would set back all their expansion goals.

      I feel like they want to somehow off-load all the expenses in running the company but still have some kind of stake in it, so it can help out Anthem. I don't know what that looks like.

      If the WWE Network was still a standalone thing then it would make sense to buy the library and maybe even turn TNA into a Network exclusive like they could have done with EVOLVE and Progress.

    Any time they start gaining steam they shoot themselves in the foot. Its impressive at this point.

    Meanwhile in Canada Scott demore has tried trademarking grand prix wrestling so rene dupree is suing him or copyright because that was the name of his dad's promotion. Seems like a shitty move on Scott's part I wonder why he decided to name it that because he obviously knew it was the old dupree promotion

      Is he just trying to buy up the trademark for every old Canadian promotion?

      I don't like TNA or WWE, but if this happens it might birth a show I could potentially like so I want it to happen.
