NWA President Billy Corgan not too long ago appeared on One-On-One with Jon Alba to debate all issues pro-wrestling, which included Corgan mirrored on his authorized battles with TNA, and what his concept was to present the corporate their makeover again in 2016. Highlights from the interview are under.
His concept for altering the TNA identify on the time:
“That is actuality now. I’m making an attempt to do a hostile takeover at TNA. They received a bunch of my cash, and based mostly on the authorized paperwork I’ve, I’m now operating TNA, not solely legally, however actually as a result of it’s my cash maintaining the corporate alive. The place this factor was going to go, we began speaking about, properly, what are we going to do as a result of for years they’ve been speaking about eliminating the TNA identify. When you have a look at the employees who had been there at the moment, Drew Galloway, Bobby Lashley, Matt and Jeff Hardy, Decay, Eli Drake, EC3, it wasn’t such as you didn’t have the horses to run. There was momentum coming off the Hardy’s (Damaged Universe).”
How the Hardy Boyz had been going to be the catalysts for the corporate identify change:
“So what I did is, there was purported to be this scene the place Matt’s in a rowboat, and it’s the morning on the lake, and you’ll see him rowing on the market. Then he would decide up the TNA title and he was going to throw it within the water. The concept was then the corporate would change names. Via the method of him throwing the TNA title within the lake, he would both carry out the brand new title, or that will be the setup, after which once we got here again operating once more, you’ll have a brand new identify for the corporate, and the Hardys had been going to be the automobile by which there was going be this transformation of the corporate.”
Says he even wished Dixie Carter to become involved:
“Then we talked about even higher, you are able to do an invasion angle with individuals who need to maintain it TNA and do an entire intercompany battle. Then perhaps even Dixie (Carter) is concerned in a single aspect, and I’m concerned within the different. My complete argument was, whereas we’re preventing for management, we would as properly flip right into a tv product as a result of we would as properly take all this squabbling behind the scenes and put it in entrance of the digital camera and truly do some enterprise. It simply by no means received there.”
