Dixie Carter took to social media last night promising big things for both the Bound for Glory pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for tomorrow night in Orlando and upcoming Impact Wrestling tapings. Naturally, the assumption was that meant TNA got enough cash from somewhere to run the shows.
According to a report from the New York Post, that’s exactly the case.
Some notes from said report:
- Billy Corgan was quoted as saying “it’s a go, from what I’ve been told.”
- The cash to run Bound for Glory came from “an unidentified third party.”
- Corgan and WWE are both expected to resume talks with TNA to buy the company next week.
It’s also noted that if it’s WWE who makes a deal the expectation, not surprisingly, is that Vince McMahon will use the tape library but shut the company down.
If nothing else, the biggest PPV on the TNA schedule will go on and fans will get at least one last night of entertainment from a company that has lasted so much longer than anyone thought it could.
