Billy Corgan had to Push for Final Deletion

New TNA President Billy Corgan was recently interviewed on Vince Russo’s The Brand. Corgan talked about having to push for the infamous Final Deletion segment involving Matt and Jeff Hardy:

“The biggest thing I had to do was push our creative, the office, Dixie, to take a chance, to go outside of the box which I know you were a big fan of. The reaction to that first angle, with Jeff going through the table, was pretty 50-50. A lot of people were howling, saying this may be the best-worst thing they’ve ever seen in wrestling. The day that came out I was inside the company, on my e-mail saying – We’ve got to do a bigger version than we just did – we have lightning in a bottle. And, there were people inside the company that were afraid to move in that direction. I pushed, and pushed and pushed for what was the Final Deletion. And now you have fans on other products chanting, “Delete, Delete, Delete.”
