Billy Corgan files a lawsuit against TNA & Dixie Carter


TNA's ownership saga has taken another turn.

Billy Corgan filed a lawsuit against the company and some of its key players in Chancery Court in Nashville, TN, on Wednesday. The defendants listed in the suit are TNA Entertainment, their parent company Impact Ventures, Dixie Carter, her husband Serg Salinas, and TNA Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer Dean Broadhead.

A temporary restraining order was issued, and a temporary injunction is set to be heard on Thursday, October 20th. All filings in the suit were placed under seal until further notice.

Further details of the lawsuit are not yet known at this time.

The saga of TNA’s ownership situation has played out both publicly and behind the scenes in recent weeks. Corgan made his intent to buy the company known in interviews across multiple media outlets prior to Bound for Glory, but the show came and went without a sale.

Dave Meltzer has chronicled the subject in exhaustive detail in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter in recent weeks. Meltzer reported in this week’s issue that both Corgan and Aroluxe Marketing were still attempting to buy the company, but Aroluxe was most likely to get it at that point.

Meltzer also reported that things were “super heated” behind the scenes with Carter, Corgan, and Aroluxe.

It was announced in August that Corgan had taken over as president of TNA, while Carter assumed the role of company chairman.

The lawsuit was first reported by Pro Wrestling Insider.
