Tonight’s Impact, Financial Problems for TNA?, Knockouts Ladder Match, More

Posted by Matt Boone June 27, 2013 9 Comments

- Mickie James will be singing the National Anthem at the Hudson Valley Renegades baseball game in Fishkill, NY on August 2nd.

– The man behind Suicide will be revealed on tonight’s episode of Impact Wrestling. Tonight’s show will also feature Velvet Sky vs. Mickie James, Chris Sabin defending the X Division Title against Suicide and Kenny King, BFG Series matches with Magnus vs. Bobby Roode and Mr. Anderson vs. Samoa Joe, plus more.

– The June 20th TNA tapings in Peoria, IL drew 2,500 fans or perhaps a little less.

– As noted, TNA will be taping Impact Wrestling this weekend in Las Vegas due to the 4th of July holiday next week. Announced for the tapings is Gail Kim vs. Taryn Terrell in a Ladder Match.

– TNA has cut way back on flying people in for tapings. There are a lot of signs that point to officials worrying even more about money these days. The cost of tapings on the road with no new revenue streams and no improvement in the existing streams isn’t a good thing for the company.

      TNA is slowly dying

      I thought Dixie’s parents were the ones keeping tna afloat.

      Well, considering Hogan gets $35,000 per appearance, whilst the average Knockout doesn’t get even that in a year…
      …strongly suggests that TNA isn’t too hot at finance management.

        if this is true, TNA needs to stop being dumb and start doing what they have to

          Oh it’s true! Knockouts make about $40k a year if they wrestle at every taping. The salary rates for Hogan/Bischoff is killing TNA. Scott Steiner even said how, before Hogan, TNA would cater food in the locker rooms. After Hogan, they barely offered anything at all.

            Hogan is going to kill TNA then go running back to the WWE and tell Vince ‘I DID IT FOR YOU BROTHER!’ …

    • The A-Team

      it’s time to convert the company Panda Energy International from private to public

    • CountingStupidSheep

      Such a shame TNAwful is going down when the Knockouts are one of the biggest sells of the company. It’s the only part of the company that squashes WWFlop. Just hope the KOs don’t go to WWE cause they’ll just ruin their careers.
