My top 3 reasons why Billy Corgan as President of TNA is Good for the Company.
Billy Corgan Takes over as president of TNA
Who is Billy Corgan?
Who is Billy Corgan? Who Is Billy Corgan? WHO IS BILLY CORGAN?! If you've been living under a rock for the past 20 years before 2015, then this is for you. Billy Corgan is a member of the Smashing Pumpkins. He Co-founded the smashing Pumpkins. The band's so popular that it has hit the airwaves not once, but twice over the last 20 years. Who doesn't love billy Corgan? He's a rock Legend in the business (Not Elvis Presley Legend, but still a legend in the Rock Industry). Anyways, in 2015, Billy Corgan was asked by Dixie Carter to help with TNA Management, because TNA was losing some serious viewership. It looked like TNA was about to be extinct at the end of 2015, but Billy Corgan and Dixie signed a deal with POP TV, and they have been running the business ever since. When news broke that Dixie Carter was no longer president of the company, I was shocked, yet alert with intent. Maybe Billy Corgan can get some higher ratings into the TNA mold. For 3 years, TNA has been bleeding talent like a nasty gash through a severed aorta. It started when AJ Styles Left, then Sting, then Bully Ray and D-Von, then Austin Aries, then Chris Sabin, then TJ Perkins, then Samoa Joe, then Kurt Angle, then Petey williams and Sonjay Dutt. The list goes on and on. TNA has suffered, greatly, but I think Billy Corgan knows what's right and what's wrong in TNA, unlike some people that I know (Vince McMahon). He knows how to treat people right when he can and is going to be a great executive in TNA, unlike Vince McMahon.
TNA Grand Championship Belt
He'll take TNA to new Heights
The reason why I say that is not only so that people understand the gravity of the transition, but also to understand the momentum shift that is going on here. TNA has been doing relatively good, minus a few glitches and pains in the storylines. For Example, we have Grado and Mahabali Shera, who are always dancing around. Billy Corgan isn't going to push them because he just doesn't see something special in them, and we don't want them pushed, although we enjoy quite the dancing. I don't. Then we've got the potential for a brand new Championship going around there called the Grand Slam Championship, which works like a UFC Fight, for those of you not familiar with UFC. Then, you have the acquisition of Aron Rex (Damien Sandow) and what he could offer to the table if used properly. Then you've got the TNA World Heavyweight Championship scene, which is perfect, with 1 exception. I read the spoilers, and Mike Bennett is now Number One Contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Mike Bennett strikes me as some kind of chicken heel champion worse than Magnus, but that's another article for another time. The TNA Knockouts Division is at a disarray, but there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Also, The X Division needs a new Champion, and I believe the right X Division Champion is going to be crowned. As for Lashley, He'll stay where he is, in the heavyweight Division, guarding his Heavyweight Championship until EC3 or Mike Bennet or Drew Galloway takes it from him. What's more, all that action will garner more viewers for the show, so more money is being credited in TNA's account.
He'll come up with Better storylines than Dixie Carter.
Let's be honest, Dixie Carter has seen her fair share of storyline hassles. From almost getting taken over twice by an evil corporation to getting put through a table, she has seen her fair share of creative thinking at work. Billy Corgan, though, can offer some exciting storylines and even get some creative in there. When Decay came to the scene in January 2016, it was all Billy's Idea. The Marilyn Manson music, the gothic appeal, it was all Billy's Idea. During the last 3 months, Billy put in some creative ideas that, at the time, didn't make sense, but now, it does. The Hardy's Final Deletion Scene was done by the Hardys and film crews were scattered all over the Hardy Compound. There are some things that I disagree with Billy About. Why would you make Mike Bennett an X Division Champion if he's not an X Division Star? But, I'm thinking ahead of myself. He'll definitely come up with much better storylines than Dixie Carter. Even the great Dixie Carter will be impressed.
Impact Wrestling on Pop TV
He'll Bring in More Talent and more viewers
Yes, We all want wrestling in TNA. Well, TNA is a wrestling show, but we need more talent in those wrestling boots. I think Billy Corgan will bring in an influx in Talent from all across the world, not just in the United States. I think that Billy Corgan will bring wrestling talent from ROH and NJPW and Wrestle-1 and All Japan Pro Wrestling and the United Kingdom. Also, since Billy Corgan has saved TNA more than once in the past year, I think it's a great opportunity for the company to get more viewers. As of August 2016, Impact Wrestling averages 330,000 viewers and has a 0.42 rating. I think Billy Corgan has been fair to TNA Talent for much of the past year. He even gave Mike Bennett the X Division Championship (Although I didn't agree with the decision). His promoters could promote the matches on many TV Networks, including USA, where WWE RAW and Smackdown Live Reside. His promoters will even bring in mainstream media towards TNA. They've got many interviewers who make sense, unlike WWE, who ask robotic scripted questions. I think Billy Corgan could bring TNA into 2017 with a fresh new product and a fresh new TV Deal with POP TV. The one thing I would like to see out of TNA is to bring AJ Styles back to the TNA mold, because he is being underutilized right now and could be going into a nosedive with John Cena beating him at Summerslam. As we've seen with John Cena Matches, 92% of those matches go to him. I hope TNA signs AJ Styles back when his contract with WWE is up.
In conclusion, I think that Billy Corgan will revolutionize the face of TNA better than Dixie ever did. Billy Corgan is an intelligent guy with great attributes, and I think he will run the company into the next generation with amazing talent and amazing precision. Also, I think that he will run a highly creative business under new management. I think Billy Corgan will definitely create a new wrestling empire. Who knows? Maybe WWE fans will stop being so hard-assed and come out of their bubble and start watching TNA just for the pure wrestling. If TNA is to improve, it has got to improve on its viewership and its wrestling. I think TNA is heading toward a good road right now. That's not to say that TNA is going to face some difficulty getting around, but at least TNA will get its legs together. It's true, the WWE is the dominant company right now, but TNA has something that the WWE will never have, and that is creative storylines, common sense booking, and mostly wrestling in there.
