Global Force Wrestling Is Adamant It Won't See TNA's Tape Library To WWE

Back when TNA was first rebranded as Impact Wrestling, there were rumblings that WWE was looking to buy the company's tape library. However, Anthem Sports boss Ed Nordholm now explains why that won't happen.

Back when TNA was up for grabs, there was talk that WWE wanted to buy the company to a) put them out of business for good and b) secure its tape library for the WWE Network. That made a great deal of sense, especially with the likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and Bobby Roode all now in WWE but it didn't happen and Impact Wrestling quickly became part of Global Force Wrestling.

Things have not gone particularly smoothly since but Anthem Sports - the owners of TNA - are now planning on launching the Global Wrestling Network, a streaming service with the full TNA archives for $7.99 a month. Will fans be willing to pay that to watch the company's old weekly show? That's what Anthem Sports Executive Vice President Ed Nordholm is hoping as he looks to rival the WWE Network.


"I know full well how the WWE Network would monetize the content and what they could pay for the library," he revealed. "It makes no sense for me to sell it for that kind of price. I’d rather keep it, put it up on the app, and monetize it myself." That's understandable but is there really enough demand there and can they possibly hope to ever make what WWE offered them? Time will tell!
