Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter- Regarding the TNA sale, one group that was rumored to be after the company, which was a name circulated online but never the lead candidate, has pulled out. The group that met with TNA officials a few weeks ago and has been the key party interested is still in play. It feels like a potential sale is cold in the sense nobody knows anything new and nothing has been talked about, and there are no signs of a transition coming. However, the leading group is still in the hunt and talking positively about making the deal. They are looking for complete ownership, and the key, is if they believe the asking price is fair.
There was some talk about the Carter family wanting to raise capital by selling a percentage and they'd keep majority ownership but the party interested is not looking for a minority interest. Jeff Jarrett, who has picked up a lot of power as of late, would be expected to gain power if this sale takes place, since he's more than likely involved in getting the deal rolling.
- There has been no talk of signing Hulk Hogan to even a deal with limited dates. Hogan being gone is a cost-cutting move as they couldn't afford his price.
- The November 7th Impact Wrestling tapings from Cincinnati drew around 1,500 fans.
- Regarding Roderick Strong going to TNA, at least as of the weekend there was no deal and he's committed at this point to Ring of Honor. TNA's Dave Lagana, who is trying to bring in good new workers, has talked with Strong as well as other potential new talents. TNA is interested in the best indy talent, ROH talent and even getting partial usage of some of the Americans working in Japan with deals.
