Reaction Backstage to TNA TV Taping Meeting

How did it go over?
- Morale in TNA is said to be "very good" following today's meeting regarding the moving of TV tapings back to Orlando. The company presented the newly-announced "Action Never Ends" as a way for talent to create deeper characters for themselves that can be spotlighted in a way that isn't possible with limited TV time.
Sources close to Universal Studios report that TNA hasn't yet finalized where the tapings will be held and that there are several potential soundstages. The old Impact Zone soundstage will not be used.
Because the change in tapings has caused live events for the next few months to go dry, talent has been reaching out to indy promoters to try and book indy dates, which of course is tricky since TNA won't let their talent work for promotions that will air them on iPPV or DVD, leaving them at dark matches or segments. However, house shows should pick back up after the European tour.
