Update: Complete Memo from Janice Carter to the TNA Wrestling Locker Room; Reports of Company Sale are “False Rumors”

Mike Killam

Impact road tapingsJanice Carter issued a statement last week to TNA's staff and locker room, addressing the rumors that the company is for sale, despite claims from Dave Metlzer of the Wrestling Observer, and various other websites, that Panda Energy and the Carter family is definitely looking to get out of the business. Mike Johnson of PWInsider has received a complete copy of the memo that Janice Carter sent out. 


Dear Staff,

As we embark on our "Where Action Never Ends" 365 initiative, I wanted to take this time to thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm to your company's renewed creative direction. I feel confident that, together, we are marching towards something great – a revolutionary way to experience professional wrestling.

With this said, I am aware of the false rumors currently circulating that The Carter Family and Panda Energy is attempting to sell their ownership stakes in TNA Wrestling. An unfortunate aspect of this business is that there are wrestling "reporters" who consistently post "news stories" without proper facts. I want to assure you that these are just rumors and I am committed to TNA and its future.

While I typically find that responding to such rumors is a waste of time, I wanted to use this as a moment to express my support and delight for the creative direction we are moving in. Our work has just begun and I look forward to a long and rewarding future with you and TNA.

Warm Regards,

Janice Carter
Chairman of the Board
