Anthem Sports & Entertainment purchased a majority share in TNA Wrestling. With the new buy out, Dixie Carter is no longer directly involved in the company and Jarrett is now taking on “key management roles”. We are not sure if this will be a long term deal or just part of creative transition.
“We are thrilled to have acquired TNA IMPACT Wrestling,” said Ed Nordholm, Executive Vice President of Anthem Sports & Entertainment Corp., the parent of Fight Network. “As we grow Anthem’s linear, digital and mobile platforms globally, top tier content with global appeal is key to that success and this acquisition is a perfect strategic addition to our portfolio. IMPACT has been a dominant wrestling brand around the world for more than a decade and we are confident that Anthem can leverage its assets and strategic partnerships to take IMPACT Wrestling to even greater heights.”
