** Jerry Jarrett was initially this. The other owner, Wrestling/JeffJarrett, was an active wrestler and thus alternated between TheBigBad, BigBadWannabe, TheHeavy, HeroicWannabe and {{Spotlight Stealing|Squad}} Wrestling/{{N|ationalWrestlingAlliance}}WA World Heavyweight Champion while wrestlers like Wrestling/AJStyles, Wrestling/SamoaJoe, Wrestling/KurtAngle or Wrestling/JeffHardy more appropriately acted as TheHero and authority figures like Vince Russo(again), Wrestling/JimCornette or Wrestling/DustyRhodes acted as the big good in the day to day running of the company.
** After Panda Energy bought TNA Dixie Carter became the company president and the defacto BigGood with Wrestling/EricBischoff(after a HeelFaceTurn) or Wrestling/MickFoley as a network representative acting as the big good in her stead when she was indisposed. The network therefore became the greatest scope paragon given Foley answered to them against the schemes of Immortal. However, a nebulous "board of directors" has also been shown to have the power to overrule Dixie Carter(after she underwent a FaceHeelTurn) and replace director of Wrestling Operations Wrestling/{{M|ontelVontaviousPorter}}VP (after he was supposed to replace heel turned Carter [[MeetTheNewBoss but himself underwent a face heel turn]]) with Wrestling/KurtAngle, suggesting Panda Energy TNA has ''two'' greater scope paragons. Given that TNA has been threatened [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs by by hostile outside forces and internal rebellion]] for most of its existence, neither is really all that active and mainly serve to act as a PlotDevice when the baby {{face}}s are [[OnlyTheAuthorCanSaveThemNow utterly screwed.]]

* CounterpartCombatCoordination: This is the draw of The World Cup Of Wrestling(not to be confused with the World X Cup, which is almost the exact opposite). Every team must have one wrestle to represent each of TNA's active title belts and they must face off against the wrestlers from the other teams in the same category. The team with the most wins, wins.

* AnswersToTheNameOfGod: In his TNA run, Ric Flair literally claimed to be not ''a'' wrestling god, but ''the'' wrestling equivalent of ''{{God}}''.



* AGodAmI: Ric Flair literally claims to be God. Not ''a'' god. ''God''.

* IncompetenceInc:IncompetenceInc: TNA's management is more liable to kill TNA than the competition ever has and ever will. There's a reason why people are literally waiting for the company to die at this point.

* DarkestHour: For the promotion itself, late 2013 was certainly the most dire period in its history. Despite some critical success with the Aces & Eights angle and other promising creative stories, TNA was hemorrhaging money because of its underperforming and costly tour schedule and expensive legends contracts for Hulk Hogan and others. Hogan left in October of that year, but by then TNA had had to cut performers left and right. Wrestling/JeffJarrett, the company founder, left in December, as did 11-year TNA veteran Wrestling/AJStyles after a broken contract renegotiation. TNA fled back to the Impact Zone for future TV tapings and rumors ran rampant that the Carter family was putting the promotion up for sale to the highest bidder.[[note]]These rumors seem to be confirmed, as articles have come out claiming that Jarrett, prior to departure, had attempted to buy TNA back along with Music/TobyKeith, but Bob Carter refused to sell it to them because they wouldn't give Dixie the same job security.[[/note]] It wasn't until summer of 2014 that the company finally seemed to recover its footing, resuming a limited tour schedule, culminating with acclaimed crossover events with Wrestling/TheGreatMuta's Japanese promotion Wrestle-1 and Wrestling/TommyDreamer's House of Hardcore, and bringing back the six-sided ring. Then they hired Russo again -- in "secret". It was fairly obvious he had ''something'' to do with the show (a lot of ''Impact!'' in early 2014 had his trademark booking), but it was all technically rumor at the time since the company hadn't announced anything and no one had any proof. Then Vinny Russo outed himself on accident by sending commentary instructions for Taz and Mike Tenay to [=PWInsider=]. They tried to make it look like a work, but Russo came clean eventually. And as it turns out, there's a reason why he was rehired in "secret" -- not only did Wrestle-1 hate him under the perception that he's racist against Japanese and Mexican wrestlers (not without merit, mind you), but ''[=SpikeTV=]'', who was negotiating a new TV deal for ''Impact!'' at the time, hated him too. In fact, they specifically instructed Dixie herself ''not'' to rehire him. While it may not have been the main reason why they decided to not renew the deal, it was certainly a deciding factor. At this point TNA is dying a slow death, and time will tell if it's getting better anytime soon.

** 2016 is starting to become this. Despite an improving product and high ratings, TNA itself is effectively broke. They got evicted from the corporate headquarters and had to move into their merchandise warehouse, they're paying the production team late again, they've lost several big stars such as Wrestling/BobbyRoode and Eric Young and they've been hit by a storm of bad PR. The company can only survive with an investor, but takers are few and far in-between because Dixie wants to keep the company under her control and won't sell the majority stake. They don't run house shows anymore because the market for them is effectively dead for TNA, and thus their only sources of revenue are their TV deal and merchandise sales, which aren't enough to offset the costs of production. At this rate it'd be a miracle if the company survived the year.

* WhyWontYouDie: What almost the entire IWC has been asking TNA for ''years'' now. There is a reason why people call TNA the "cockroach" of ProfessionalWrestling -- this company should have died years ago. They've practically been on life support since they were cancelled from Spike, bleeding out stars like no tomorrow and their house show market effectively dead, with several bone-headed business and PR decisions to add on to the damage, and yet out of either [[{{Determinator}} pure tenacity]] or dumb luck (or, more likely, a combination of the two), they've managed to survive.
