TNA HQ moves to a warehouse. This is the end.

Sorry for not making any Wrestling Blogs in awhile. I have a few other things in my head right now, besides Wrestling. But this Article is just Wonderful:

 

As reported yesterday, TNA Wrestling will be moving out of their current offices at Cummins Station in Nashville to the ShopTNA warehouse, which if you haven't seen the photos is quite literally a warehouse (below). Dave Melzter of The Wrestling Observer is reporting that while the move has reportedly been planned for some time as a costing cutting measure (PWInsider), there is much more behind it.
TNA reportedly are unable to keep up with their rent at the offices and are being evicted by the building management leaving them no other choice but to move to their warehouse. In recent months, they moved down to the basement of the building where the TV editing equipment is. Dixie Carter had her Trifecta public relations company at Cummins stations for years before getting involved with TNA, an indication of how bad things really are for the company right now.
TNA does have an investor for the company who is willing to pump money into the company, although they want a controlling interest something which Dixie Carter is not willing to surrender at this stage, although it may get to a point whereby she has no other choice. There was talk of Carter retaining a 51% majority share in the company although it's hard to see how that would work going forward.
News also broke late last night that TNA has lost their Tuesday night replay of Impact Wrestling on POP TV.

At this point, TNA pretty much reached the point of no return. Dixie Carter has to sell the company to someone, or this will be the end. Though, i already heard that in her usual stubborn way, she already blocks people from her Twitter, who suggest that she should sell.

 

I guess we all know what will happen. But to be honest, i am surprised it's happening that early.

Kinda expected, hopefully their talent can get better work elsewhere

 

I can expect James Storm finally going to WWE to tag team with Roode once again, since Roode will most likely go there.

 

EC3 will probably go to Ring of Honor or New Japan, since he probably didn't forget how WWE treated him.

 

I can also see Matt and Jeff Hardy having one last run in WWE like the Dudleys have right now.

Who would have thought that Ring Of Honor would outlive TNA, let alone become #2 in the U.S.? Perhaps Sinclair Broadcasting could scrape up TNA, or Bushiroad road (owners of NJPW) could buy it. I'd laugh if the Jarrets collected TNA back up. Or if the NWA collectively bought it out and started literally from square one. 

 

I don't even think Vinny Mac would purchase this. What could they do w/ TNA? They never had a big following to market to. WWE already have a brand for incoming talent. There aren't any big enough name contracts to shell out for. 

 

How can TNA save itself?

The thing is, TNA has such a stigma these days, that nobody wants to grab it with 3 layers of protection gloves. My best guess is probably ROH, but even that is something i can't see.

 

I think the only thing that Vinny Mac could do with TNA, is using their video archives, to show old shows and PPVs on the network and make more documentaries, with AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and Austin Aries, to show where they have become big.

 

How TNA can save itself? Dixie Carter has to give up the majority of her shares and she is too much of an egomaniac to do that move. So basically:

Unless the others end up getting a judge to block her voting power on grounds of incompetence and mismanagement.
