Backstage Talk on TNA Negotiating with a New Investor, Advertising Revenue with POP TV
– There are said to be very serious talks going on in regards to TNA bringing on a new investor. The new party wants to purchase 55% of the company but Dixie Carter is trying to negotiate them having 49% so she keeps controlling power.
TNA has to live on their own money these days, which is making things tight, and The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the investor may already be involved in a limited role.
The Observer also reported that one of the reasons the last set of Impact Wrestling tapings was announced so late is because they can’t officially announce Universal dates until Universal receives a deposit. That also may be why the mid-April tapings weren’t officially announced until weeks after they were first mentioned to talents.
There are also still rumors of TNA pay issues and one contributing factor is that the revenue sharing on advertising with POP TV has been bleak, due to the low ratings, and it has been very hard to sell TNA-specific ads.
