Dixie Carter Talks Message She Sent To Billy Corgan Over Buyout Rumor, TNA's New Strategy

The Tennessean has a story today about TNA's new cross-platform programming strategy, which will bring 24/7 content via television, social media and their website. TNA President Dixie Carter said that they need more content to get their characters over and compete with WWE. She also denied that the company was for sale and discussed the recent rumors of Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan wanting to buy the company.

"Since we have been in business going on 12 years now, this has been an ongoing (speculation), 'Oh, we're going out of business. We're not going to make it,'" Carter said. "Ever since we started, people were taking odds on how long we would last. This last time I think a lot of it was perpetuated by a story that Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins was going to buy it.

"I texted Billy and I said, 'Oh really, so you're going to buy my company? Are you excited? That's cool.' And he said, 'Oh, don't you love rumors.' "
