    This question has been floating around since 2002, but with recent shenanigans like Jarrett and GFW branding leaving, again, what is next for this company. They were rebuilding quite well, and then suddenly the biggest influencer in the company left and he's apparently taking his company copyrights with him. Bound for Glory is now under the IMPACT name, Jim Cornette and Jarrett left.

    Can it survive, and for how long?

    I could’ve sworn there was a deal to put their content on the WWE Network a while ago. If that happens, they’re as good as dead.

    Wasn't a deal.

    Just a question on a Fan Survey by WWE. I doubt WWE will put a full fledged promotion on their network.

    Honestly, I think the WWE has pretty much taken over every company from World Class Championship wrestling to in five years I think TNA will be gone. You can't keep losing talent and not bring up new talent on your own. ROH, PWG, and others produce while TNA gets the scraps from WWE

    There was a deal in place to buy the library and then Smashing Pumpkins sued Dixie and Anthem bought it instead.

    Now we have the Global Wrestling Network, so that deal won't be on the table again until they sell the company.

    TBH I think this last year and change has done the most damage to their credibility. Making Billy Corgan your President out of the blue, and then equally as fast firing him, being sued by him, Dixie stepping down, selling the company to Anthem, changing their parent company name from TNA to Impact Wrestling, rehiring Jeff Jarrett, merging Impact with and renaming the company GFW, suspending Alberto Del Rio days after he wins the world title on PPV, letting Jeff Jarrett go before the GFW merger was complete, renaming the company back to Impact and now they have their GWN up and there are rumblings that the site isn't even secure and people are being warned not to give Impact your money for it until it passes a security upgrade. Talk about flushing what little good faith your company had down the toilet.

    I'd be surprised if they make it through 2018.

    That was said a decade ago. They're alive as long as there is a cent to pop out.

    I mean back then at least they had stars. Have you seen their roster recently? They have no stars. I mean, EC3? Abyss? Who else?

    They've had a small selection of stars, but that doesn't mean it will be a bad product.

    TNA hasn't had a strong star presence since around 2013, but they've had some profitable times. EC3, El Patron, Mundo, Lashley, and a mixture of young talent like Andrew Everett, Eli Drake, DJZ, Caleb Konley and Trevor Lee are still in the company

    They have a very talented roster, but that means nothing when the corporate structure is incompetent.
