"It's 6:30 am. Been up for hours. So excited I can't sleep. TNA's about  to change forever. Can't wait to share it w/you, my staff, the talent"
Wonder what it is this time? It seems nearly every week they have a huge surprise planned.

They've signed the Mountie and he is going to sort Hulk Hogan's ring out which will then lead to Abyss fighting the Rocky Balboa cardboard cutout which he'll lose thanks to the now newly reformed Main Event Mafia coming down and interferring. Mike Tenay and Earl Hebner then make a tag team called "DA BACKSTAGE BOIS" and win all the belts. Oh yeah and lets not forget that Sting comes out of retirement to face the newly signed Mark Jindrak.

The Band are going to go to the ring for a promo, in that time, everyone of importance/relevance within the company escapes and they are going to have a Sidewinder missile fired at the building taking out all the old washed up has-beens, along with the complete morons who are at every show that have been known to ruin shows with their smarky chants

Being you appeared to be an avid TNA fan when you regularaly posted here I would like to know who you would actually get rid of and why.

Change of location? Going live on Thursdays? Going back to Mondays? Going on the road? Second show?

I hope for a a 2nd 2 hour show. if not i won't be excited. going on the road would be nice too cause i hate the impact zone fans.

though TNA always promise change but its always for the worse. it got really good right before Hogan came in and ruined it all.

Any chance that they are changing the name of the company from TNA to something else?  If it's going to change forever, maybe they are getting rid of the not so family friendly acronym of TNA and coming up with something that's more mainstream.

Either way, why would anyone buy a PPV to hear about a new business decision?

Best possible scenario: Jeremy Piven is made permanent TNA GM.  Welcome to year round Summer Fest!

IF Danielson really did get fired and if he only had a development contract would that mean he wouldn't have a no compete clause?

....Just asking

Russo, Ferrarra, Hall and Nash mainly, you could possibly put Hogan in there too, the idea that he can come out and take out a heel with 1 punch really takes away the idea of suspending disbelief that you should watch wrestling with. I was thinking of more, but looking at the roster, there really aren't any others I see no potential positives for (Jimmy Hart is still listed but he hasn't been seen in months)

I'm not a complete Russo hater, but if it meant the potential to have either Bischoff or Heyman writing the shows, I'd be all for it.

Usually ALL WWE contracts, developmental or not will have the clause, it means they can't work on another companies televised shows but can still work for smaller indy shows

[/FONT]TNA'S BIG SURPRISE  UPDATE

                             By  Mike  Johnson and Dave Scherer  on 2010-06-11  20:10:44

                                                   The word we are getting is that the  big change that Dixie Carter  is tweeting  on her Twitter account is  not something related to  Slammiversary but something  that is much  bigger for the company as a  whole.  There has been a lot of talk that  the company has reached out to  people to  enhance and/or overhaul the  creative end of the company and  we can confirm that  the two most  prominent names discussed internally  are Kevin Sullivan and Paul   Heyman.

  As we have mentioned previously on the site, Heyman has been on the   TNA radar  for a while now.  The story we have gotten is that for Heyman   to come in,  he would need complete control of the creatiove process   (or at least as much as  a booker can have in 2010).  We can also   confirm that they have spoken with  Sullivan as well.

[/FONT]TNA PRESIDENT DIXIE  CARTER ON 'TNA CHANGES' AND  THEORIES MAKING THE ROUNDS

                             By  Mike  Johnson on 2010-06-12  00:06:47
                                                   I reached out to TNA President  Dixie Carter for clarification on  the "TNA changes" comment that we've  written about tonight.   When asked  about whether it would involve a  creative change as we theorized  earlier in the night, Carter responded  none of the theories making the  rounds were correct and the change was  something on a much larger,  grander scale.  Carter described it as  "true change."

While there is rampant discussion going on within the company about  the  situation (and we've heard a number of theories), the reality is no   one in the company knows what Carter has up her sleeve as she hasn't   disclosed it to anyone.  Carter is holding all her cards extremely close   to the vest, so no one knows what the true nature of what her tease  is.

While Carter made it clear this situation is not something  specifically  designed for Slammiversary (although she did tease a  surprise for that  PPV, which apparently is a different matter), all of  this certainly  does add a lot of intrigue and mystique to this Sunday's  PPV.
If it is a booking change, why on earth would casual fans give a shit about that really?

If it were just a mere creative change, she wouldn't need Spike TV's permission
