If you became owner of TNA, what would your first TWO official acts be?

Please note the fact that the title says, "OFFICIAL" acts, meaning acts that pertain to the business. I'm sure there are some who's first official act would be to roll a fatty if they suddenly became owner of a wrestling company but I'd appreciate serious responses if possible.

Here's mine:

1) Hire Jim Ross as my lead announcer and executive consultant.
2) Hire Mick Foley as color commentator and executive consultant.

1) Create developmental territory. More specifically, start-up a working agreement with an already existing promotion - like Scott D'Amore's MaxPro.

2) Begin marketing a name and identity change, that will come into effect on a particular date. Get Don West to shift the old TNA-branded merch, in the process.

Last I checked JR was under contract with WWE so that's out of the equation. :(

1. Take over creative with a team that knows the ropes (Taylor, Borash and Foley). My ideas will be filtered and expanded on by them but the final decision is mine.
2. Cultivate a team that can sell the product. We’ll be looking for a new TV station suitor, more advertising, show on the road etc.
Making changes to the roster comes later.

1)Replace the creative team with a new one. Consisting of Gabe Sapolsky, Dave Laganna, Tommy Dreamer, Raven, and Jeff Jarrett. They wouldn't get Carte Blanche to do what they wanted. I'd definitely filter their ideas. If a guy's on the creative team, that means his wrestling days are over!

2)Start a vigorous marketing campaign. I'd try to makes sure the guys got their faces out there. Make sure they make as many personal appearance as possible. Because what good is a new creative team, if nobody's watching?
