Here is the complete memo that Janice Carter sent out to TNA talent, regarding rumors that Panda Energy was considering the sale of TNA…
October 31, 2013
As we embark on our “Where Action Never Ends” 365 initiative, I wanted to take this time to thank you for your dedication and enthusiasm to your company’s renewed creative direction. I feel confident that, together, we are marching towards something great – a revolutionary way to experience professional wrestling.
With this said, I am aware of the false rumors currently circulating that The Carter Family and Panda Energy is attempting to sell their ownership stakes in TNA Wrestling. An unfortunate aspect of this business is that there are wrestling “reporters” who consistently post “news stories” without proper facts. I want to assure you that these are just rumors and I am committed to TNA and its future.
While I typically find that responding to such rumors is a waste of time, I wanted to use this as a moment to express my support and delight for the creative direction we are moving in. Our work has just begun and I look forward to a long and rewarding future with you and TNA.

EDITORIAL OPINION: I’ll just say this – of course she’s going to say this – would you expect ANYTHING else? It’s called “damage control.”. There is no need to get their talents “worried” but it’s well known among talent and staff that they are listening to all offers. Numerous sources have 100% confirmed this to us.
Also, please keep in mind that the sale was never 100% confirmed guys. They are simply listening to all offers and that continues. Two potential interested parties were at TNA HQ in Nashville, TN last week. Again, no sale is confirmed but if the right offer comes along, it’s very likely they will sell a % of the company. Nothing has changed on that front.
