He told the Orlando Sentinel:

“We are grateful for the partnership we’ve had with TNA. We look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”

    Oh, give them a few months, when they start getting 50 people per show and can no longer afford to travel, they’ll be back.

      At some point in 2013 TNA will end up being back in the iMPACT! Zone

      Never say never, but I would never pay to go see a TNA show.

      • Backstreet Bungalow

        Neither would people at Universal Studios. I can’t remember how many times it was reported of TNA giving away free tickets

    Dumb kid kash – yesterday he’s like “I’m still with the company it’s all good”

    he obviously didn’t check his voicemail…or the damn roster page. Or noticed he is irrelevant and not on TV for 3 months

    Seems like they arent too happy about TNA leaving them. Well too bad, if you weren’t one of the worst wrestling venues in history then they wouldn’t have to leave to go on the road would they? ;-)

    • TheStormofWar

      Well, it worked well for both of them (save for TNA not being allowed to charge admittance from what I understand) while at Stage 21. We’ll see what happens.

    Now Universal can make some money and put up a new roller coaster.

  • wwe guy

    this will impact tna for sure soo many wrestlers left wwe for the hetic scheldule ummm thats y tna was a option for people like jeff hardy and kurt angle i love to see how it plays out tho Tna doesnt have many fan in the states since hulk hogan came in ijs

      WWE have house shows about 6 days per week where as TNA will probably have a couple of house shows. It will be a lot lighter than WWE’s schedule.

      • TheStormofWar

        Agreed. Unless TNA really does blow up into the next WCW, there is little to fear from TNA’s road schedule. Traveling to two towns a week during a “heavy schedule” is easy enough for guys like Hardy and Angle. TNA won’t likely do a heavy road show schedule and over-expose the product.

    TNA going on the road could be a great success or the death of the company. Either way it’s the kind of risk TNA needed to take in order to grow as a wrestling company, especially if they ever hope to compete with the WWE someday.

    • WCWPunk

      Andrew your posts are gold. I couldn’t agree with you anymore.

    • Backstreet Bungalow

      Lets see how long it lasts when Dixie and friends decide to be cheap and not pay for hotel accomodations and airline tickets. I think this is what kills TNA just cause of the money they’re going to have to shell out for talent and venue
