Dixie Carter sent a letter to all TNA wrestlers and staff on Thursday, after the announcement earlier in the day that Anthem Sports & Entertainment was taking control of the company.
As first reported by PWInsider, Carter referred to the announcement of Anthem's involvement as "excellent news" and that Anthem had provided a "funding plan that will stabilize the company."
The announcement earlier in the day appointed Ed Nordholm of Anthem in charge of TNA, and announced that Billy Corgan no longer was involved with the company.
In the letter, Carter mentioned changes would be made to the company, although Dean Broadhead and Serg Salinas, Carter's husband, would remain on the Board of Managers. Carter referred to tbe Board of Managers as developing a "longer-term business plan" for the company, adding, "With financial stability, we can focus on executing our near term objectives while planning a measured and thoughtful approach for the future."
The letter also announced that Aroluxe Media, referred to as "an equity stakeholder", would continue to handle production in 2017, and that the next set of TV tapings would occur Jan. 5-10 in Orlando.
Carter wrote that she and Nordholm would be available for questions from members of the roster, but did not elaborate on Corgan's exit only to confirm that he was no longer with the company.
"Over the years, we have built TNA and Impact Wrestling to be a very successful, global brand. You should all be excited for its future and be more determined than ever to work diligently to take the company to the next level," the letter concluded.
