Remember that conference call TNA held about a half a year ago where company President Dixie Carter told reporters she wanted the promotion to cut down the number of pay-per-view (PPV) events it runs each year from 12 down to as few as six?
It appears the decision has been made to axe at least two events.
That's according to the Wrestling Observer, who say the February and September shows have been cut from the schedule. That would mean Against All Odds and No Surrender will not be returning, at least for 2013.
Yes, it means TNA would be giving up the revenue made by those events but if it seems like those two being cut was a strategic move, that's because that's most certainly the case. Without Against All Odds and No Surrender on the schedule, that gives the company an extra month to build towards its two biggest shows of the year, Lockdown -- which has been moved to March -- and Bound for Glory.
It should be interesting to see what kind of affect the added time to promote those shows will have, if any, on their respective buyrates.
You Cagesiders agree with the decision to dump two PPVs from the schedule? Should they get rid of even more?
