Dixie Carter Talks About TNA’s Financial Situation, Relationship With POP TV & More!

TNA President Dixie Carter recently spoke with Rnjith Ravindran of The Fan Garage. Here are some highlights from the interview…..

Upcoming PPV’s:

“We’ll have at least one or two live pay-per-views this year and for Slammiversary,we have some incredible matches that are planned. We have some big matches after months and months of buildup and it’s going to be our best Slammiversary that we had in a long time.” 

On the signing of recently released WWE stars:

“Many believe that our actual roster and their wrestling are best in the business. So we are always on the lookout for new talent. In the last few years, we focused on growing home-grown talent. A lot of new talent like EC III, Rockstar Spud, Eli Drake, and Bram, there are so many and I could go on.”

 “They’ve grown so much but I think we also did a fantastic job with people like Drew Galloway who was at the WWE and came in and completely relaunched himself. There are definitely some incredibly talented wrestlers on the market right now and some will be available at some part of this year. And I do see ourselves talking to them. I think it would be exciting to bring a few into TNA.”
On TNA’s relationship with POP TV:
“They’ve been fantastic partners. Brian Schwartz has been a fantastic leader of the network. He has been great to us. It’s a young network but they have some great distribution.”

“With 85 Million people being able to see it in the United States, we are growing every week and our DV-R and playback numbers are growing by around 20-30-40 percent every week and I’m looking forward to a long and solid relationship with them as they’ve been a lot of fun to work with.”

On rumors of TNA’s financial situation:

“You can’t react to the rumors about the financial situation. That’s the difficulty about being in my position. There’s so much incorrect information out there about the financial situation of TNA. We are putting out some of the best television our company has ever put out and if you watch it you can tell, great things are happening to our company. We just announced some associations in the Middle East, we just announced Vietnam and a lot of similar announcements are rolling out.”

  1. they should try marketing better make sure people know that tna is in each city and try for bigger arenas and lastly sell sell sell.

    1. Other than the UK tour and a few tv tappings in a couple of cities outside of Orlando, Florida. TNA hasn’t toured in two years. They have had a few live ppv’s in a couple of cities, most of them have been well attended.
      Once a new investor comes in or new ownership happens, I expect a total revamp of the company from top to bottom with the exception of the current talents, they are producing awesome matches, that does not need to change!
