TNA announces major overhaul to pay-per-view business
Reported by: Colin Vassallo, on Jan 11, 2013 - 11:41:10 AM

TNA Wrestling announced a major overhaul to their pay-per-view business this week which will cut the ten remaining pay-per-views to just four a year.

The major shows that survived the cut include Genesis in January, Lockdown in March, Slammiversary in June, and Bound For Glory in October. The rest of the TNA pay-per-views have all been ditched to save costs.

The removal of the other pay-per-views leads to 3 hours of less programming every month for international distributors however TNA will be taping three hour specials that will air in the overseas market.

These specials will be titled One Night Only and the first two specials are being taped tomorrow as part of the Genesis weekend.

"The Pay-Per-View industry has changed so much in the last decade," said TNA President Dixie Carter. "The traditional pay-per-view wrestling model needed to evolve and we believe this strategy will positively impact not only the Pay-Per-View events but the weekly television programming as well."
