The Tennessean has a new article online featuring quotes from Dixie Carter on the rumors of Billy Corgan being a potential buyer for TNA Wrestling. We never put much into the story but here’s what Dixie had to say about it:
“Since we have been in business going on 12 years now, this has been an ongoing (speculation), ‘Oh, we’re going out of business. We’re not going to make it,’ ” Carter said. “Ever since we started, people were taking odds on how long we would last. This last time I think a lot of it was perpetuated by a story that Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins was going to buy it.
“I texted Billy and I said, ‘Oh really, so you’re going to buy my company? Are you excited? That’s cool.’ And he said, ‘Oh, don’t you love rumors.’ ”
The article goes on to discuss TNA’s new #Impact365 strategy and how badly the pro wrestling business needs it to pay off, a sentiment that more than a few of us share. You can read the piece in its entirety at this link.
