Dave Meltzer recently reported via the Wrestling Observer Radio that TNA will likely file for bankruptcy in the hopes of absolving their increasingly mounting debt. There’s no current indication as to what would happen after that, but as of now chief creditors include Aeroluxe, Billy Corgan, and the Fight Network.
Meltzer also noted that Dixie Carter doesn’t want to look bad, which seems almost comical at this point:
“The whole thing is, Dixie is still trying to figure out a way – this is why it hasn’t been sold – I don’t know if it’s to stay in control but the whole thing is, she doesn’t want to look bad publicly.”
Meltzer did not say if TNA would be filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy. It’s possible TNA could stay alive if they filed for Chapter 11 but Chapter 7 would likely mean the end of the company. As noted this morning, TNA has scheduled TV tapings at Universal Studios in Orlando for early January.
