– While away from TNA, Desmond Wolfe has been working on writing a sitcom for TV.
– TNA has filed for a trademark on the term “Impact Wrestling.” This all goes with the re-branding that we have reported on recently.
– TNA has been going with the mentality for a few months now that since pay-per-views don’t do too well as far as buys go, they are only going to promote the show for the last week or two before it happens.
While nobody knows exact pay-per-view buy numbers, based on some cable information, buyrates at this point range from 9,000 to maybe 20,000 with top shows, with the exception of Bound For Glory. Lockdown, which usually does good buys, is looking to be significantly lower this year than previous years.
