TNA President, Billy Corgan needs to face a certain reality: this is not the alternative music scene of the early 1990s. TNA cannot mirror the success of The Smashing Pumpkins during the industry's Grunge Era.
In a recent interview with ESPN, Billy Corgan spoke about the use of ex-WWE talent in TNA and how his company needs to form its own identity:
“Many times in the past, TNA has made the mistake of bringing in WWE people to sort of create a buzz that didn’t sustain. But success is building a culture that is distinctly your own, with your own identifiable signature. If everything you do doesn’t feed into that, you are making a big mistake that history shows does not work.”
Perhaps the only interesting aspect of TNA right now centers around the "Broken" Hardys saga and apparently Corgan and TNA are looking to capitalize with a full-length film based on the strange brothers. Corgan had the following to say about a full-length movie project:
“So maybe like super hero movies, we get the Hardys as the center of the universe and start to use them to sort of branch off in other directions. We are making it up as we go along and that is sort of the fun part. It’s really exciting because we are hopefully writing a sort of new golden dawn in terms of how wrestling can be presented on television, and I think that’s fantastic.”
Keep in mind, Billy: despite all this rage, TNA will remain the rate in a cage.
