Backstage News on TNA’s “Action Never Ends” Campaign, Bischoff’s Status, Halloween Impact

– TNA is advertising the following for the Halloween edition of Impact Wrestling on the official preview from their website:

* Fallout from AJ Styles leaving as champion
* Kurt Angle vs. Bobby Roode
* ODB vs. Gail Kim for the Knockouts Title
* A possible appearance by Abyss

– TNA talents were told at Thursday’s talent meeting that the new “Action Never Ends” campaign is their opportunity to flesh out their own characters and get them more over than TNA can with it’s two hour show. The idea is that everyone on the roster will be encouraged to send officials videos of themselves on the road, at home, reacting to things that are going on in the company. Some of those videos will be posted on the TNA website and social media while others will be edited into Impact and Xplosion. It was presented as a way for the talents to really dig in deep and create characters for themselves and as a way for everyone to get an extra spotlight on their work.

– As noted, Eric Bischoff was not at Bound For Glory and was not at last night’s Impact Wrestling tapings. Talents were told at Thursday’s meeting that Bischoff would be working from home going forward. Some felt this was a sign of Bischoff’s departure from creative but that hasn’t been confirmed.

    One of TNA’s problems is that the whole roster have already fought each other 20 to 50 times. If that’s what “Never ending action” is I’d rather watch Hogan’s sex tape.

    I like that “Action Never Ends” idea. One of the problems with modern wrestling is that the talent that is already over gets 15 minutes on the mic while those trying to get over have cold matches with very little opportunity to build heat or display their personalities. Instead of both the winners and losers getting interviewed after a match, we get the announce team TELLING us about what the performers feel and think. This trend has been devastating to both the mid-card and to tag team wrestling.

    Sounds like Deja Vu for Bischoff. I wonder if he’ll try and get a group of investors together to buy TNA only to find out Vince beat him to it.
