The financial post did a profile of Anthem Sports and Entertainment owner, Leonard Asper where he explains why the company purchased TNA Impact Wrestling.

In the interview, Asper explains that he and his brother were big wrestling fans growing up and noted that TNA was the second highest-rated program on the Fight Network.

“I like sports. But I’m not doing this because I’m a wrestling fanatic. It’s a business decision,” he said. “We want to own content as a company.”
