TNA President Dixie Carter recently did a big interview and talked about her company's future plans. According to WrestleZone on Jan. 30, that includes taking "TNA Impact Wrestling" on the road in 2013.
One of the biggest complaints about TNA Wrestling is that the weekly television show airs at Universal Studios in Florida, whereas the WWE tours around the country with "WWE Monday Night Raw" and "WWE Smackdown." Even the smaller Ring of Honor Wrestling changes up its venues.
Carter said in the interview that will change and that, starting this year, they plan to make a big announcement concerning taking TNA on the road. She called it the natural next step for her company, but they have not pulled the trigger yet because traveling expenses are high and she refuses to put TNA in financial trouble.
The TNA President also talked about lowering the yearly pay per views from one a month to just four a year. She said that was a tough call, because they are giving away millions of dollars but they wanted to shake things up. She said that, while it was a financial risk, it will make the pay per view events mean more and make television shows more important.
She also hinted that TNA might have more television in 2013 as well because changes are coming to their contract agreement with Spike TV.
