Update on Rumors of TNA Being For Sale, Early Estimate on Bound For Glory Buys, More

– The actual paid attendance for TNA Bound For Glory was 2,622 but there were 3,000 fans in the building so TNA didn’t paper that much. TNA officials are taking this as a positive. When WWE ran a live event in San Diego this past August, there were almost 4,000 in the building but only 2,358 paid.

– According to various cable industry sources, Bound For Glory looks to have been down about 15% from last year, which would indicate around 17,000 buys.

– There are a lot of stories going around about TNA being for sale but there are indeed serious talks going on behind the scenes. There is a potential buyer that has been looking at the company. Representatives for the potential new owners have been at TNA’s offices recently. Talk of a potential sale has been going on for months but has reached a serious enough point where things are at a significant stage.

    I’m in agreement that at this point blowing it up and starting over would be best.

    As much as I liked early TNA, I always kinda hated the name and the initials even. Total Nonstop Action does not sound like a wrestling promotion, and TNA just sounds like they were trying to be funny/smutty.

    But yeah, I agree. Just like when they renamed WCW when Turner took over.

    Whoever takes over, hopefully they completely rebuild the company. Get rid of the trash and start fresh. Decide on a new, professional name (the TNA name is damaged beyond repair) and build from that. Will they ever compete with WWE? Maybe, but that should not even be in the question. Become successful and then go from there.
