Dear Anthem Sports,
I know you have recently acquired a majority interest in TNA Wrestling and are trying to repackage/rebrand the company after years of struggling for the company. When TNA was founded by Jeff Jarrett in 2002 the company was considered a potential breakout company with a lot of fresh faces and new blood with names like James Storm, AJ Styles, Triple X, Chris Harris, Abyss and many others. Slowly but surely the company gained stem and the attention of wrestling fans through developing a name for themselves as the alternative of pro-wrestling giving fans something else to watch other than the WWE. Also character development was big part of the company at this point as well with the development of talent like Beer Money, Consequences Creed, Jay Lethal, Kazarian, Samoa Joe, and further development of the veterans saw TNA peak.
Until about 2010, everything was going very well for TNA and looking like the company would become the alternative to WWE if they stayed the course and remained on track. Unfortunately the company would get a little side tracked with a lot of bad business decisions over a short period of time and it would derail their momentum and potential. But at this point that is long in the past and should be put in the past, but not forgotten about yet learned from.
In my time as a wrestling fan I have seen a lot of companies go away and though most of those companies can and do attribute their issues to money troubles but overall instability for the company is a close second for all of the companies. For the longest time TNA has struggled with instability and lacked a clear cut direction, but now with the power struggle a thing of the past and with seemingly a clear direction things finally seem to be heading in the right direction for TNA. The biggest problem has always been that people who had no business influencing the creative side of the company were able to do so, but it seems as though they have learned to avoid that and let those who know wrestling work their magic.
Now I don't mean to come off as someone who thinks I know everything there is to know because I don't know everything, but I do hope that I come off as a knowledgeable and somewhat concerned fan wishing the best for the company. The letter doesn't end here as their is more to come next time around.
The one stop shop for all things TNA Wrestling. At first you may not agree, but every now & again you might be surprised.
