Default Billy Corgan is the New President of TNA

http://www.pwtorch.com/site/2016/08/...corgan-carter/

Apparently Billy Corgan has been named President of TNA and Dixie Carter has become the Chairman of the company. The article states that Dixie wanted to give him a role that reflected his commitments to the company and he will be in charge of day to day operations.

The article notes that the company struggled to find investors with Dixie at the helm and that Corgan vows to use his connections to take the company further in 2016. Whether another investment group will join with Corgan remains to be seen.

The article doesn't seem to be in kayfabe so it looks like there has been some major shake ups in TNA. IMO TNA has had a great year of television since the move to POP and can only build on this. Getting away from the LOL Dixie mind-state might actually attract some viewers who left due to certain perceptions about the companies management.

Assuming this is all true what are your thoughts about this change in management?

The best advice any TNA fan can give Billy Corgan and Dixie Carter is...

....stay off the television screen. Let the wrestlers tell the story, both Corgan and Carter are fucking terrible with a mic and should just stay behind the scenes.

Titles in a corporate setting are as much props as titles in professional wrestling. This may make no difference to the quality of the product or the product's ability to shrink or grow.

Dixie probably heard, "Belieeeeeve, believe in me, belieeeve, believe" on the radio and decided to make the change.

Hey Billy Corgan is awesome on a mic. I love Bullet With Butterfly Wings.

Seriously though Dixie is seen as incompetent and turns some people off because of the history of stupidity she's done. Billy Corgan at least is known as the creative leader of Smashing Pumpkins and is a known fan of wrestling. Being a creative powerhouse in his day job and a fan of wrestling would lend itself to people hopefully checking out TNA under his leadership

It's a miracle this company has survived through Dixie's stupidity, the more hands-off she is with the product the better off TNA will be, assuming that's what will become of this.

If they insist on having an on-air authority figure, its probably better Corgan than Dixie but would it kill TNA to go another direction and keep them both behind the scenes? The "Authority Figure" gimmick has yet to produce a compelling storyline since Stone Cold vs. Vince yet it keeps getting beat into the ground. Let the commentators convey to the audience the decisions made by commissioners/presidents or whomever and get back to telling most of the story in the ring. It is called Total Non-Stop Action after all..

Corgan has really climbed the executive ladder since coming in 16 months ago. Really, like no one before him. Not even Bischoff and Hogan were able to see this kind of inter-company growth.

I'd like to understand more about exactly what goes into the day-to-day operations of being TNA's President, and specifically how it differs from John Gaburick's title of EVP of Creative and Talent Relations. Is Corgan going to have direct access to pay structures, or be the final say on who is or isn't brought in and/or retained? Things like this.

From the outside, it's a nice PR move, because Carter's reputation not only precedes her but is overwhelmingly negative. Even if it's not warranted (I'm torn on this), the public perception of her is poor, so from that respect this can really only be met with positivity IMO.

I'm with Jeff in saying that they need to stay off TV. Nothing against Corgan, but the last thing TNA needs again is one of the real authority figures being a regular on TV. Dixie still gets crapped on constantly regardless of her on screen character or behind the scenes.

I actually find Corgan compelling as an on-screen character. Carter is the polar opposite. She's too contrived. Billy is actually genuinely awkward, and for some reason it really works with his authority character IMO.

He gets the benefit of every athlete being able to look at him like, sit your singing ass down while he stands there and tries to be threatening. With Dixie it's more like your hot mom who doesn't use cuss words standing there scolding you.

Corgan didn't even run his own promotion and other than being a musical name has done nothing for TNA. With his own music and Smashing Punkins reuniting how can he actually run a wrestling company. It's business, the less you do the bigger title you get.
