TNA with financial problems?

According to the Wrestling Observer, TNA has cut back on flying in talent for the television tapings. There are reportedly signs that the company is worrying even more about money these days.

The cost of taping on the road with a lack of revenue stream is said to be a cause for concern. At this time, TNA is mostly flying in the Bound For Glory Series competitors, the Aces & Eights, some Knockouts, three X Division wrestlers and a few others.

Thoughts?

THEREVOLUTION

I expect the usual reactions.

TNA is a private company with a mysterious revenue source that makes them all the money. Forget PPV buys and attendance, brother.

First link. Second, TNA having finacial problems have been posted in the dirt sheets since day one. Third, bringing talent costs money and if talent isn't being used that day, why spend money on it? WCW made that mistake and it cost them when they had 100 guys and used maybe 20 of them

I want TNA to actually do good. If these financial things are true.

Re: TNA with financial problems?

Why would they fly in talent they're not going to use?

Re: TNA with financial problems?

Isn't this like the third year in a row, where they're reports of TNA facing "financial problems?"

Merry
Christmas!

Isn't that basically what they need to make a show? What does the wrestling observer want them to do? Fly in everyone and their dog?

Pro wrestling is supposed to be enjoyable. That is all.
