Dave Meltzer Questions NY Post About TNA Being Worth $40 Million

nypost.com has an article up talking about Billy Corgan looking to purchase TNA. In the article it reads:

Corgan says the relevant parties have agreed on a sale price. Although he can’t reveal the figure, an estimate based on publicly traded WWE’s market value of two times revenue would put it at around $40 million.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer comments on the $40 Million dollar figure explaining that TNA is not worth that. He believes the price tag for the promotion is more $4 million, and that the $40 million price tag is based upon the publicly traded WWE market value.

Backstage News on Paul Heyman’s RAW Promo, Update on the Punk Return Story

Source: F4Wonline.com

– Dave Meltzer said last week that one of his sources, a top WWE Superstar, claimed 100% that CM Punk would be at last night’s RAW in Chicago. Meltzer himself sounded unsure that Punk would be there. When Punk did not show up on last night’s show, Meltzer says his source told him after RAW, “I was lied to.”

– We hope to have more details on the creative decision behind last night’s Paul Heyman opener but the early word is that Heyman changed the promo some from what was originally planned. It wasn’t like Heyman “went into business for himself” but what he said was reportedly a bit different from what was originally planned.
