Wrestling company growing in Cummins Station

Studio set to open in September will more than double firm's footprint

TNA Entertainment, a promoter of professional wrestling events, is adding to its footprint in Cummins Station with a high-definition post-production facility.

The 15,000-square-foot facility will become the home of TNA’s weekly TV show and monthly pay-per-view events and is on track to open Sept. 1. Until then, the post-production work will continue to be done at Filmworkers Club on Music Row, said spokesman Andy Barton.

“We’re expanding to a point where we need to bring this in house,” Barton said.

TNA’s shows are now being aired in more than 50 countries across the world. The company leases 10,000 square feet of office space at Cummins Station for its staff of about 45 and also works with about 100 production contractors as well as more than 50 wrestlers.

National Building Corp. is handling the buildout of the studio. The company pulled a $650,000 permit this week that will cover walls, wiring and the like. Barton said TNA is spending at least that much on equipment for the new facility.
