Ding dong the witch is dead! Dixie Carter is no longer the chair of the board of directors after selling TNA wrestling to Anthem Sports after months of intense negotiations. Carter will only have an advisory role with Anthem and I honestly hope that they do the exact opposite of whatever the former TNA executive recommends.
It’s really unclear what the cell means for TNA’s future but Anthem, the Canadian company that also owns the Fight Network is expected to rebrand the company and pump some serious cash in order to improve the overall product TNA puts out on television each week. Anthem has owned the licensing rights to TNA’s lucrative video library for several years so they pretty much are just acquiring the talent and the name of the fledgling company.
TNA has been home to former WWE stars Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy and others. The company has also been a launching pad for future WWE stars including current champion A.J. Styles.
TNA’s weekly “Impact” program is broadcast on Pop TV.
