Wwe’s Vince Mcmahon Buys Tna!

Here we go again…

Comments (20)|6 Liked It

     I admit it.  I watch wrestling.  I could use the excuse that watching it is a father / son activity (which it is), but I would be a liar.  I would probably watch it even if I didn’t do so with my son.  It really is a sitcom of the best sort.  But I’m not one of those fans who goes a bit too far with it.  You’ll never see me in an Austin 3:16 shirt, and I would never in life pay $50.00 for a pay per view I can watch on you tube a few hours later.  Other that Dwayne Johnson, I couldn’t tell you the real name of a wrestler.

     I realize, however, that there are still people who live and die by this crap.  People who truly take it seriously when whoever the WWE is pushing as their current good guy loses.  But the group of fans as a whole can’t be nearly this dumb.

     Here’s a news flash, wrestling fans.  Vince McMahon hasn’t purchased TNA.  He founded the damn thing.  Are the fans really this dim as to miss this?  It isn’t that complicated.

- The contracts of every WWE wrestler come with iron clad no compete clauses.  I’ll spare the detailed explanation; if you really don’t know what that means, Google it.  In short, if you quit WWE, you can’t run over to TNA the following Monday.  Which half of the TNA roster seems to have done.  Look at the current TNA roster:

Come on, people.  Christian actually left and then came back!  Vince McMahon is a genius.  When it comes to the business he’s in, he is without peer.  He is Sports Entertainment.  If you don’t see what’s coming, you really are an idiot.  Remember the WCW “invasion”?  The sequel is coming.  Remember the dream match ups?  Rock vs. Hogan.  Undertaker vs. Sting. (although we never did get to see that one).  It worked so well the first time, Vince went and set it up again.  Genius.

     For those still in doubt, try this:  use Google.  Dig just a bit; look at the ownership of TNA.  It’s just not that complicated.  See you at the “Invasion”.

    as a wrestling fan. I have known for quite a while about the whole TNA thing. The only one I actually watch is WWE RAW I prefer watch DX what can I say. A lot of the older wrestlers are still by far the best showmen out there…

    Haha, thank you so much for this article, I really do appreciate it.
    You have just given me a perfect excuse for the day, watch Wrestling videos on youtube (:
    Also great information, and I remember watching WWF, why did they have to change it to WWE? Is it because they had to outline that it is ENTERTAINMENT?
    I always thought it was real too, I remember that episode where someone threw Vince off of a balcony and broke his arm or something.
    Damn those were the days, thanks, I can’t belive how much reading an article can bring back!

    @ Gezza it was changed to wwe because of the Word Wildlife Foundation founded in 1961 also known as WWF so they changed it

    The wrestling business needs competition and Vince Mcmahon has realised this! Thats why there is a TNA – ever heard of a silent investor??? (Vince McMahon) Hogan & Flair are still in the WWE Hall of Fame if they had truly had jumped ship they would have been removed!

    Vince owns TNA!

    Here’s my thoughts is Vince involved in TNA? Hell yes why ? He used to have this little proving ground down in Florida and in Ohio that worked on the up an coming talent that we all like or dislike. Stars like Batista, Cena, Orton,Melina, Mickie James,MVP, R-Truth just to name a few and being the good buisness man he is why not go big and be his own best competition. I’m reminded of an interview Kurt Angle gave he was supposed to have left the WWE because he was burning out and he needed to let his body heal. But within a month he was at my local highschool doing wrestlefest for another small promoter N.E.W witch use’s stars from surprise surprise both WWE and TNA imagine that and heres the gem a TNA guy went against a WWE guy. Last year after this big hopla overRic Flair retiring he was there with Kevin Nash ,Flairs kid and paul london and Velvet Skye she’s the hometown girl so I think Vince is just the master puppeteer and he playing everyone all these matches are predetermined non of these holds hit and punches hurt these guys when they do get hurt it’s because of a mistake on one of the guys in the match or it’s just that an accident if you don’t believe me that these holds don’t hurt and that theses pipes and sledge hammers and bats are made out of rubber then READ BRET HEARTS BOOK “HITMAN” and look on YOUTUBE for the serires the untold truth about pro wrestling maybe it’ll frre up your Mon nights and save you some money on PPV

    Heres the facts:

    In 2002 a company named Panda Energy International purchased controling intrest in TNA(72%) from the Jarretts.
    This was brought on from Dixie Carter pursuading her father Robert W. Carter(the founding owner of Panda Energy International). Without them TNA would have went Bankrupt. Unlike the author, i did do my research. here\’s the site i got this from:


    This is the info that should go mainstream.
    feel free to email me for a credible source of info

    I am 26 and I watched WWF from 1996 to shortly after the Invasion (basically a good portion of my life). Article writer, we weren’t stupid. The buyout and subsequent “invasion” by WCW and ECW was obvious kayfabe. For someone that isn’t really into it (you would say that this PG crap is quality time…wrestling was better when they were beating the hell out of each other and it was for adults) you sure pretend to know what you’re talking about. Vince McMahon is a smart…well, I can’t say he’s being smart with what’s airing now…lost a lot of us Attitude Era fans…business man. He let’s people out of their contracts though. Especially if they REALLY want out. Angle, Neidhart, Bulldog to name a few. Austin even got to walk away for awhile. If the fans like you enough…of course you’ll get an open invitation back.

    Look, who are you to say that people shouldn’t get into the shows? People around the world get serious about shows. It’s an escape from reality and you want it to go a certain way. People mark out when one character hooks up with another or dies. There’s really nothing wrong with it. It’s fun to lose yourself in something.

    Your roster point out merely proves a different point. It’s wrestlers that, with the exception of Lashley (he went on to do MMA and doesn’t even wrestle so you fail again), long for fights with more experienced wrestlers and not just losing to build up “newer” wrestlers. This especially happened to Foley. Another Invasion would mean another influx of wrestlers which would then have to be weeded through…just like the last one. Time consuming and expensive. Also, a played out storyline. It’d be better to just have the competition than to merge. ..again.

    As for your “iron-clad non-compete clause”…well…seeing as how many wrestlers have jumped from one brand to another..that doesn’t hold up so well. I’m sure as a precaution they have them sign something stating they will not let any skeletons out.

    You’re acting like an idiot. Wrestling nowadays doesn’t even matter anyway.”WWPG” is terrible and boring. A sport where the point is to beat up the other person isn’t meant for kids. It’s stupid that it even went that route.

    I only take issue with what you said about some fans (though if people from my generation are still watching WWE, I don’t know what possesses them to do so) and the fact that you talk like “The Invasion” was such a non-obvious angle. Shane and Steph buying it out from under Vince…yet he had no knowledge…come on. You’re an idiot if you think we really thought that. You also forget that there IS plenty of non-kayfabe that happens on and off screen (well I’m speaking always based on my long time of viewing before I stopped completely). You don’t really know jack about the good ol’ days and you spout off about the PG Era that is nothing more than a mute point.

    In closing, I’ll simply put it this way: People just like to pretend…much like you pretend to know what you’re talking about.

    On a different and much quicker note: To the guy that says all of wrestling is fake: There are people who really do hit for real and put enough into a move to hurt someone; not accidentally either. There are both real and kayfabe aspects to wrestling.

    It appears to me that sometimes TNA takes quotes from WWE and the other way around.
    Last TNA Explosion suddenly the commentator said \”It\’s all about Bragging Rights\”….yes, that\’s the upcoming sunday PPV of WWE.
    And you hear and see just subtile references from each show to the other. Whether it\’s a Hulk Hogan hand to the ear by one of WWE\’s wrestlers or suddenly a mentioning of a WWE-PPV by TNA.
    Actually I expected Vince and Shane Mc.Mahon appearing at 10/10/10 as being revealed as \”they\”, but that did not happen.
    Still – although I really don\’t know of course – I have this feeling that WWE and TNA are connected and that connection might very well be called \”Mc. Mahon\”
    We\’ll see…..so far I have to say that TNA brings a bit more excitement to the table than WWE.
    Expecially the NXT shows have become really lame and the total overexposure of Michael Cole does not help things too much either.
    Greetings to you all

    hey guys dont forget about vince russo he is writing for tna the same guy that vince took out at w-c-w thet hate each other im not saying that vince dosn’t own tna im just saying its highly unlikely, but i dont really care if he owns it or not i just wish that both stay on the air to give the other one competition wwe has been getting much better since tna has partnerd with hulk hogan and i have liked tna for about three years now, tna is actualy the reason why i watch wrestling agin i stopped watch wwe for years and tna brought my passion for wrestling back, i respect them for that. The point is we should all support them both regardless of whats going on because without tna wwe will go back to the way it used to be, and come on you got to admit tna dosn’t remind you of wcw, come on goldberg i mean dimond dallas page and the 4 horse men, lex luger, they even got a new alex wright ( Robbie E) we all just have to give it a chance they are both good, anyway they cannot buy one another out, only reason why vince bought wcw the last time is because there television station sold them to him if spike decides not to sell tna to vince they wont be bought

    your a moron spike cant sell tna because they dont own tna. turner broadcasting owned wcw thats why they could sell the company. not that i could care less about this i just stumbled across the article. but still your a fool hahaha

  17. Posted December 7, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    Also, consider all of the knockoffs in TNA, like how Jay Lethal was imitating Lex Luger, and Shark Boy was imitating Stone Cold Steve Austin. Can anyone say copyright infringement? I didn’t think so, as WWE owns TNA.

    By the way, pardon me if I didn’t get the TNA superstars’ names right, as I don’t ever watch that show.

  18. Posted February 26, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    i turned on the boob tube to watch raw. the first hour i got tna and raw on the second hour. on satellite direct, they have a wwe tv channel. click on it and it says wwe and tna wrestling

    I doubt tns s owned by Vince, but i bet There is power there somewhere. Simply because I cannot see Vince Releasing Terry from any contract. Terry ( Aka Hulk Hogan) is worth far to much money for that. Also you see other WWF/E stars show up.

    I bet there is a connection. He may not own it but i bet he owns stocks and is an invester in TNA.

    Well this is so funny, cause the guy who wrote this article is actually right. Vince did create TNA. about 1 year before Invasion. As a back up plan to increase ratings incase things went wrong or someone screwed up… I know this cause I’m a former professional wrestler. I was at the WWE 2011 HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY. I talked to Terry aka Hulk Hogan while I was there. I also sat next to Kurt Angle and his wife Karen Angle. To spoil WrestleMania XXVIII I will tell you this John Cena will fight The Rock and Hulk Hogan will be the Special Guest Referee. Also my Father “Warrior” will be Inducted into the WWE 2012 Hall Of Fane class. Along with Edge and Randy Savage and Lex Lugar and Triple H. Also there will be 3 more undisclosed Inductee’s as well.
