Default TNA: The Netflix Era

TNA: The Netflix Era

TNA has always been subject to scare stories about an inevitable and imminent closure. These stories became all the more prominent as the Summer of 2014 came to a close and Spike TV announced that they would soon no longer be airing Impact Wrestling. There was now undeniable evidence suggesting that TNA was near its demise. Until...

Netflix and TNA came together to hold a press conference, announcing a new alliance between the two companies. Several terms of a newly signed contract were announced;
  • Netflix became a partial owner (with around 25% of shares) of TNA.
  • Netflix's staff would transfer to TNA to supervise every area of TNA's operations up to and including the creative team.
  • The Manhatten Centre will be rented out every two weeks to for double taping shows. With it being a permanent home, "season tickets" will be sold for 6 month passes to all shows.
  • Impact will air on Saturdays at 9pm. The first show of each taping will be aired live. Run time will be 80 Minutes.
  • Xplosion will be added to the Netflix library on Saturdays with a run time of 30 Minutes. It will no longer be a recap show.
Other announcements included;
  • The PPV format will not change. The same carriers will be used. Netflix will not be involved.
  • TNA Programming will halt from now until Bound For Glory. The card will be announced gradually over the next week. With no programming until after the PPV, buy rates are expected to be lower than usual.
  • Bully Ray has resigned an open contract (like Devon). The new deal convinced him not to severe ties with TNA.
  • TNA's link with Wrestle-1 will continue to grow stronger with more shared talent. Also, Ohio Valley Wrestling is once again TNA's child company and will apparently have a strong link with Xplosion.
  • Despite the Manhatten Centre deal, International tapings will still take place on occasion. This includes the annual Maximum Impact Tour. A Canada TV Taping is also being discussed.
The partnership provides a new format for Netflix, TNA and professional wrestling as a whole.

The Bound For Glory Card will be up soon. Feedback is greatly appreciated. I'm new to the site but will start reviewing other BTBs soon. REVIEW4REVIEW

Default Re: TNA: The Netflix Era

Two weeks from the stunning announcement that TNA and Netflix will be teaming up, the whole Bound For Glory card has been released. A Live Netflix Pre-Show has been announced too.

Bound For Glory X Card
  • Netflix Pre-show - BroMans vs Mr Anderson and Chris Melendez
  • The Great Muta, Austin Aries and Tajiri vs James Storm, The Great Sanada and The Great Manik
  • Bobby Lashley, MVP and Kenny King vs Bobby Roode, Eric Young and Abyss - TNA World Heavyweight Championship
  • Gail Kim vs Havok -TNA Knockouts Title
  • Samoa Joe vs (Xscape Match Winner) - X Division Title
  • Tigre Uno vs DJ Z vs Crazzy Steve vs Homicide vs Low Ki vs (A mystery former X Division Champion) - Xscape Match
  • ECIII vs RHINO - Monster's Ball
  • The Wolves vs The Hardyz vs Team 3D - Elimination Tag - TNA World Tag Titles
  • Bram and Magnus vs KAI and Ryota Hama

As Netflix staff invaded the TNA backstage area, on-air talent cuts and recruitment were one of the biggest aspects of change on the minds of the fans and the company itself. Additions and cuts to the roster have3 already been made and more are in progress. The TNA website's roster page will be updated the night after Bound For Glory with notes on all the changes.

Meanwhile, #TNALIVES trended world-wide and Netflix invaded TNA's staff from head to toe and gave a significant amount of advertising for Bound For Glory X and TNA's Netflix debut six nights later.

Multiple adverts have spread like wild-fire online and have aired on Spike TV. Due to the last minute intrigue added to the PPV, buy rates are actually expected to be better than usual. Add in a a sold out Tokyo venue and everything about the night is set to be a little odd and a lot exciting.
