TNA President Dixie Carter was a guest on the Live Audio Wrestling Show this past Sunday night. The Show’s host John Pollock discussed TNA’s current Pay-Per View formula of one show per month. Carter said she is not a fan of the monthly format and would like to see that formula “shaken up.”
Carter said, “I’m not a big fan of monthly pay-per view’s, quite honestly, but you have contracts that keep you held in and bound at times…We’re definitely talking about trying to shake things up and do things differently in the future.”
TNA is a privately held company and their actual pay-per view buyrate figures are never officially released. The actual data that does get out indicates that TNA has never come close to breaking 100,000 buys for an event and change is needed.
Carter repeated again her recent claims that more changes are coming to TNA, and that she would be addressing many of the elements of the product that have become stagnant or too formula.
“I work very, very closely [with the creative team]. I’m not going to profess to be a wrestling writer. I am good at challenging people. It’s not just ratings, but other things as well,” Carter said. “We’ve made a lot of changes internally to present the product more real and focusing on these young guys.”
