Default Ring of Honor Owners Possibly Interested in Purchasing TNA Wrestling

Well that's interesting. Seeing as ROH do quite well for themselves and have a strong fan base and good connections (NJPW connection) this would certainly be good. Even if it went the WWE/WCW invasion route it couldn't be worse than what TNA is doing now.

Best case scenario TNA becomes a second show and stays pretty much the same with better and more coherent storylines/management

Worst case scenario ROH gets TNA's tape library and some of their talent.

Pretty sad when what's going on behind the scenes of a wrestling promotion is more interesting than what's going on with its televised product. Its definitely interesting. I'd be curious to know if they're interested in acquiring it as a secondary asset separate from ROH to fold it into ROH.

Sinclair Broadcasting is reportedly rebranding the Tennis Channel the American Sports Network so, as a result, there's little doubt that they'd be expanding sports and sports-like content for the channel.

The one flaw in the slaw seems to be the same that it's been for other potential buyers: Dixie Carter wants to retain majority ownership. If not for that, I think there's a strong possibility that someone would've already purchased TNA.

I'm not completely sold on this as an actual possibility but more a stretch to link random items together. For the sake of having fun I'll play along.

From reports it seem as if Sinclair is largely interested in the international television deals and the video library. Both reasons would be a massive boost in favor of ROH. It allows their product in new global markets and greatly expands video opportunities. Outside of that there is zero reason to keep TNA as a functioning Brand. Strip it down to it very basics and bury what is unnecessary. Perfect example is WWE's handling of WCW and ECW, expect there was brief value in Brand names. In the case of TNA the video library is only worth while for the stars who competed and not the call letters.

In the end, all lot of mofos will be out of work.

Unless Dixie gives up control of TNA, then I don't see any deal happening. I don't think sinclair broadcasting will want to let her stick around and continue to be in charge of the day to day running of the company when she has done such a terrible job up to this point.

If they were to somehow be able to convince her to leave completely, Then this could be a very good deal for ROH. Not only would it cement there place as the number two company, but would also give them TNA's Video library. Which would be beneficial to them if they really are rebranding the Tennis Channel and if they are planning to establish as a true alternative to the WWE the they are going to want to broadcast more then one hour of wrestling each week and having a roster made up of both Roh and Tna Tallent would give them the depth needed to put on two to three hours of solid action every week.

Dixie may not have a choice much longer. She's not exactly in a position financially to be able to broker a financially sustainable investment deal whilst still retaining majority control, if she was a deal would have been struck already and this would be old news. The position Dixie is in unfortunately for her is, swallow her pride and accept a deal that would see her power decrease but would most likely be beneficial to TNA in the long run, or she can continue holding out for a deal that benefits her that may never come. Either way Dixie is likely to lose majority control over TNA, whether it be to an investor or to bankruptcy is up to her.

"Ms. Carter, here is x for TNA. And, here is $5 million for you to go make babies with Serge, and leave the Wrestling to the adults."

The problem may be that Dixie may have NOTHING else to fall back on. This could be like that woman that ran for Governor of Wisconsin because her family's business (Trek Bicycles) really did not want her anywhere near it. Same scenario could apply with Panda Energy. Does Earl Carter REALLY want Dixie to be anywhere NEAR Panda? I mean, why else would Dixie try to pull a Wilpon (The NY Mets pulled the same thing, with some success)? She is probably fighting so she can eat, for she will be unemployed if she is out at TNA. Furthermore, she may owe Panda a boatload of money if she unloads TNA. Money she may not have, and may not be able to raise.

As for RoH: If they can pull this off, it will be absolutely brilliant. Furthermore, you will have the beginnings of a REAL alternative to WWE. You can have TNA in Florida, RoH as a pseudo-National promotion with a wide TV presence. And, Sinclair is run by the Sinclair family. It is a PRIVATE company. They do NOT have the millions of masters that WWE needs to answer to. This is going to get VERY interesting in the next 5 years if SBC can pull this off.

Let's get this straight:- If TNA was going to be bought out, it will be bought by Vince McMahon and WWE.

Why? Because, like WCW and ECW, Vince would want to get hold of their video library and archives.

Imagine what buying TNA could do for WWE Network. They could offer all the TNA PPVs as well, and have all the eps of "Impact Wrestling".

Whatever ROH or anyone else offers, Vince will outbid them. He wants to own all of wrestling, and look at all the archival footage the Network has (it even has Smoky Mountain, World Class and UWF) so why would WWE not be interested in buying TNA, even if it only for footage for the Network, DVDs and for HoF video packages.

WWE would also probably buy some contracts of TNA talent they want, start them in NXT and promote any that they want.

Face it, if TNA gets bought, it will be WWE who do it. ROH can't match the price that the WWE juggernaut puts up.

SBG could crush WWE. If the chose it to be so they could recreate the rivalry so many fans lust over. Numbers. Numbers. Numbers.

The difference between the Sinclairs and the McMahons is that the McMahons are beholden to other masters, aka Shareholders. The Sinclairs answer to their viewers and their own family. Unlike WWE, Sinclair Broadcasting is PRIVATE. If Sinclair REALLY wanted to, they could start a second Monday Night War without batting an eyelash. However, they are doing it strategically. If SBC/RoH takes over TNA, the next stop should be a sit down with Bruce Tharpe about buying out the NWA. SBC prides itself on being a "Southern" company. A take over of the NWA licensing would allow it to cut WWE off at the Mason-Dixon Line. TNA would become NWA Florida. RoH could become a Mid-Atlantic promotion. Then guarantee airtime to other NWA groups on the rebranded Tennis Channel. Watch VKM shit.
