Hello again folks in last weeks edition I looked at TNA going into major venues for PPV events and got many questions on how this would be done well this week I will gladly explain how things will become.
December 3rd 2012 Game Changer
President Andy Barton of TNA wrestling along with Dixie Carter, Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Jarrett is in a conference office at the TNA world headquarters in Nashville awaiting a meeting a knock is heard on the door. Enters Cary Silkin President of ROH wrestling, Ross Abrams - Executive of ROH and founder of ROH Rob Feinstein and Gabe Sapolsky into the conference room. Gentlemen have a seat today we are here to discusses are future Partnership and plans.
TNA Buys ROH wrestling to become one. they will however keep there spert shows TNA Impact Wrestling will be moved to NBC keeping it's same time slot at 8pm to 10pm on Thursdays. TNA Ring Of Honor would debut on Spike TV at a 8pm to 9pm time-slot on Tuesdays. Now you may wonder why I kept TNA the company name and moved Impact wrestling to NBC in its same time slot and day and ROH to Spike TV in a one hour format. Keeping TNA the company name is simple it is known around the world thus why putting a well known show like TNA Impact Wrestling on a channel everyone gets no matter what is a smart move. Now my reason for making TNA Ring of Honor a one hour format on Spike is simple yes ROH has a fan base but its not globe like Impact Wrestling is. This would be the same way Impact Wrestling started on Spike years ago and then advanced to a 2 hour show. The two company's s are one now but the goal is to make them feel like to separate company's even tho there not TNA guys would only appear on Impact Wrestling and Ring Of Honor wrestlers would only appear on TNA Ring Of Honor. The Only time we may see a cross promotion match is at a monthly PPV.
