THE END OF THE LINE FOR UNDERTAKER, REBRANDING TNA, THE COST OF BUILDINGS AND MORE

Why doesn't NXT run the Liacouris Center in Philly instead of the Tower Theatre?  The Liacouris Center is a real arena right in their capacity area.  The Tower is not really made for wrestling.

They are taking the go smaller first approach.  It makes sense.  You would rather sell out at 2,000 than have 3,000 in a 10,000 seat building, a building that costs much more.

Is this Undertaker’s last Wrestlemania?

If it is, he hasn’t said so.  How long he continues to work is completely up to him.  Vince McMahon will give him that latitude, as would I if it were my call.

Why is MSG so much more expensive to run an event at than the Barclays Center is?

Mostly it is due to the union contracts associated with MSG.  That, plus the location, which is the most expensive real estate to run a show in the country probably.

I noticed on your site that Hornswoggle has been working with TNA. Is he still using the Hornswoggle name and if so, how is he able to?

He is going by the name Swoggle, which he has used since leaving WWE.

I may have sent this question in before but don't think I saw it answered. Now that Anthem is the new owners of TNA, is there any chance they will finally drop the TNA and re-brand simply as Impact? 

A chance?  Sure I could see them considering it.  It’s not like the TNA name has much goodwill with the customer base anymore.  The TNA name was never a good one but the brand has taken quite a beating over the last few years.  Hopefully the new owners can reverse the damage caused by the old one.
