TNA announces major overhaul to pay-per-view business

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.

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 and as well in the USA on pay-per-view for a lower price.

These specials will be titled One Night Only and will debut in April of this year and will continue every month for the rest of the year for $20 less than the other pay-per-views.

“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.”
