James Storm on what TNA told him about cancellation reports
The v2wrestling podcast recently interviewed James Storm, which you can listen to here. During the interview, Storm addressed the recent reports of Destination America possibly dropping TNA this September:
"I've been told by the higher-ups that there's nothing to worry about," Storm said (thanks to Adam Davey of v2wrestling.com for the transcription). "TNA is owned by a billion dollar company, Panda Energy, so the money is going to be there. They talk about the network saying this and that. Every network wants great ratings, but the problem is that it takes time for the casual wrestling fans and the viewers to find Destination America. A lot of people don't have that channel, or it's a premium channel and they have to pay for it. My mom actually couldn't find it until like a month ago. So it's just taking people a little longer to find the Destination America channel.
"Nobody really knows except for the network and Dixie Carter, that's how I look at it. Dixie cares about the wrestlers like they're her own kids. If something's going to go down, she's going to have a meeting and talk about it with all of the guys, so that's how I look at it."
