The big news in the world of wrestling this week is that TNA could be set to have new owners very soon, with various individuals and companies interested in purchasing the organisation.
As expected, the WWE have been in the mix, and 411Mania are reporting that Vince McMahon is ready to wait until the last second to swoop in and take control.
VINCE IS INTERESTED
New TNA president, Billy Corgan, wants to claim ownership, but that hasn’t happened yet. He also confirmed that the WWE are one of the entities interested in purchasing TNA and admitted that if Vince decided to buy the competition, he would succeed because nobody can outbid his deep pockets.

It’s being reported that should Vince take control, they’ll want to acquire some of the talent, but he’ll also be adding to the already-extensive WWE Network library, full of packed content.
Acquiring the library means the WWE can use that footage to help fans understand the backstory of several of their stars, such as AJ Styles and Samoa Joe, even Austin Aries on NXT as the trio had great success in TNA.
Bringing in the talent is the interesting part of this, it’s clear they’re interested in bringing back Matt Hardy who is doing some of the best work in his career with his ‘broken’ gimmick, while Jeff Hardy remains one of the most popular figures around.
WWE IN CONTROL
With the return of the cruiserweight division, this also opens the doors for the WWE to bring in even more talent to stack up the roster further, but whether the TNA stars want to jump ship is a different story.
Vince is said to be comfortable in letting things play out as they are, the company knows the pressure TNA is under right now and are confident of sealing a deal at the last minute.
They’re also said to be comfortable with TNA moving ahead with their Bound for Glory event and their Impact tapings.
The WWE seem to be in control right now, and Vince is probably relaxed and watching the situation unfold, knowing one call at the last second could secure him ownership and wipe out another competitor.
