Dixie praised TNA’s new relationship with Anthem and said they have injected capital & resources into the company that will bring it to the next level.
Nordholm also addressed the roster and praised them for their hard work. He also said the new agreement will be a great opportunity for both The Fight Network and TNA.

Regarding TNA creative changes, Dixie confirmed that Billy Corgan is no longer with the company and that David Lagana resigned last week.
