Hitting the Reset


It sure has been an interesting time in TNA (I wish I could still call it Dixieland). So I thought I would ease my way back into the swing of things by giving my thoughts on the TNA product in recent months. I am going to take this division by division and give my take on why some of the more confusing things took place. But first, I'm going to start with the individual points which are separate from any division.

TNA - Destination Reboot


Now that the reveal of the new TV deal has settled in for Impact fans, this is what we know at the moment. Destination America seemed to welcome in TNA Wrestling and stated Impact “fits perfectly within our (Destination America) DNA” in their press release; positive to hear that they are eager to have this partnership. We have seen the final episode with original content on Spike as both sides amicably split from their partnership. Finally, we know that Dixie is working on a deal to make sure the Canadian viewers still have weekly access to Impact. While a lot is left unknown, we see that Impact is moving into 2015 with some major changes to what fans are used to.

The Art of Simplicity


Welcome to the newly redesigned TNAsylum.com. As you can see, I have updated our look to match our new direction. Moving forward, my goal is to keep things simple and focus on the core basics: news, columns, media and interviews. There will be no rumors and no filler (although you are free to discuss any of these topics in our Open Discussions).

TNAsylum has always been known for creative original content, and we are proud to carry on this tradition with a superb staff of writers. In addition to our columns, we have our usual bonus features including live coverage of Impact and pay-per-views, videos from Xplosion and British Boot Camp, and special award presentations every summer and winter.

I want to thank Talon, FK9, Jason Blade, Garrett Kidney, Mortimer Plumtree, Wake Chambers, Adam Foster and Joseph Haas for their hard work and contributions – and to my friends Adam Davey, Dustin Hull and David Gilbert, it's been a pleasure to have you as part of our network.

I also want to thank you, the readers, for your support. Granted, we've had some issues in the past with certain unruly posters, but rest assured I will address any and all concerns as we look forward to an exciting future.

I am open to suggestions, so if you want to get in touch, send me an email at jso2ko@yahoo.com.
