So they are essentially dropping everything, doing the four matches this coming Thursday, and ending it from there with the top four point getters going to the 9/12 final four show.

During a Q&A in Toronto with Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff over the weekend as part of a Fan Expo event, a fan asked Hogan what could be done to make TNA successful. Hogan said that Bischoff "needed to be given the keys to the car" and that, "somebody somewhere" needed to "drop all the resources we need like we had in the WWE and the WWF, whether it be cameras or money or vehicles or advertising" in order for TNA to work "in a perfect world."

According to PWInsider, those within TNA are upset about that statement for a number of reasons and there is heat on the two for hinting that the Carter family wasn't giving TNA the proper resources. The comments are seen as a slap in the face of TNA President Dixie Carter from her top paid talent.

One wrestler said (while asking to be kept anonymous): "Even if you agreed with Hulk, the way it was said and the way it comes across in that video just completely disrespected Dixie, even if that's not what he meant."

Another reason they are upset is that Bischoff has been given creative control. From day one, he and Hogan have got their way with direction and ideas, including what talent was brought in, removing the six-sided ring, moving Impact Wrestling to Mondays against RAW, taking TNA on the road and more. TNA agreed to the ideas hoping it would build their company. The problem is that the company hasn't grown since Bischoff and Hogan came on board in any aspect, including live events, ratings or licensing.

The company began touring but didn't see any increased revenue that they were led to believe they would get. Instead, they had to restructure the company and become an "evil" company that let Jesse Sorensen go, as well as being in a position where money is an issue in re-signing AJ Styles.

TNA paid Hogan a good salary and put Bischoff in a position to be the liaison between Spike and TNA, even before Dixie Carter, who built the relationship between the two. The two continue to get rewards for being with the company while others have been fired or been given less money, and the company isn't doing as well as they thought.

Several people are waiting to see what the interaction between the two and Dixie Carter will be at tonight's show in Cleveland, the first time Hogan has been at a TNA taping in a month.

The anonymous wrestler added: "Hulk came across like he pretty much said that the company didn't have anyone strong in charge and Eric was the savior. Well, they've been here years and Eric hasn't saved anyone yet."
Oh and there's some sort of issue with Magnus.

Magnus will stand with his current total of 39 points. Jeff Hardy and Kazarian will face each other tonight on Impact Wrestling on Spike TV to make up their originally scheduled match with Magnus. Also the originally scheduled Kazarian vs. Hernandez match will move to Xplosion this week.

Bischoff in charge with unlimited resources? I'm pretty sure that wasn't called WWE or WWF.

We all know they just want a blank check with Dixie's name on it to live the fast life at someone else's expense like Turner.

In Hulk's defense, he's a dick.

In other news...make way for Bully H

He was in favor of getting rid of her and felt there was nothing that could be done to salvage the marriage angle following her public engagement to Phil Costa of the Dallas Cowboys. We’re also told it was Ray’s idea to be aligned with Brooke Tessmacher.

On a side note regarding the cuts, the feeling is that none of them have had any effect on the ratings and the “hardline negotiations” are expected to continue.
They've been a pretty reliable website. A lot of rumours they have reported near-enough always wind up being true. That said...I'm a little skeptical of Bully having the stroke to put the final stamp on getting rid of Hulk Hogan's daughter.

...is Bischoff still employed by TNA then? What's his role in the company? (he hasn't been on TV in ages)

Brooke Hogan brought nothing to the table and once she got married she had her meal ticket.

Ok a side note wouldnt it have been better if Tracy Brooks was the person Bully brought out. That could have set up matches between A&E and Fortune 2.0.

If/When TNA closes its doors. I hope the final episode just uses the clip from the final 2 mins of St. Elsewhere.
Look it up if youre not familiar.

They should have a fat guy walk out in the ring, fart into a mic and then the rest of the show can be highlights from Eric Young's career.
