Impact Wrestling is a completely new company, yet again. With Jeff Jarrett back and Dixie Carter out of the picture, it’s time to see if the promotion can stay afloat. To survive, Impact Wrestling needs to get a few things done.
Follow WrestleNewz’s Joe on Twitter at @JosephLisnow It’s time for Impact Wrestling to once again change stations. There two best deals were Spike TV and FOX Sports. POP TV is fine, but it’s not a known channel and many people don’t have access to it. If Impact Wrestling had the chance to chose, go with Spike TV. They already have Bellator, which has improved under new leadership, and pro wrestling would make a good transition into MMA programming. The biggest move Impact Wrestling has recently made was to basically take away all of Dixie Carter’s power. While Carter had the money to build a decent promotion, it was frequently met with issues. At one point, the entire staff didn’t seem to trust Dixie. With Jeff Jarrett back, at least the promotion has someone help running it with lots of wrestling experience. Impact Wrestling is almost like a video game when it comes to reseting. Every time some new people enter the program, the company restarts their storylines. This shows how wrestling is clearly scripted if one week you’re battling someone inside a cage and then a few weeks later you’re chasing the tag team belts together. Work with the current storylines. With Jeff Jarrett having a decent role in Impact Wrestling, the future of Global Force Wrestling might come into question. They’re still putting on shows, but they never gained a TV deal like Jarrett hoped. There’s some talent in GFW and Impact Wrestling, so let the promotions work together. It keeps things surprising with such a large roster. No more Vince Russo or Eric Bischoff at all. Don’t make them a character on TV or give any backstage power to these gentlemen. Just keep the two away from the promotion as they’ve never been able to take Impact Wrestling to the next level. If anything, people automatically have negative thoughts when the names Russo or Bischoff are mentioned in the wrestling world.
