Re: TNA's lack of star problem
Aries, Roode, Storm, Hardy. They already have stars. But if you expect them to be the kind of stars that would garner big ratings spikes, that's just not going to happen. This is TNA we're talking about. They have their own little fanbase of about 1.1 million and this fanbase watches the show regularly, but outside of this fanbase no one watches TNA. TNA don't attract a whole lot of sponsors and has little to no mainstream exposure. They've got (C-list) celebrities in the past and they couldn't do much to the ratings. Hell, they've got Hulk freakin' Hogan, ome of the biggest draws the business has ever seen and HE couldn't draw huge ratings for them. WWE is a marketing machine. They can promote the hell out of someone's return and it would draw big ratings. TNA is far from the machine that WWE is. If they can't be that machine, then might as well not even try. They're doing a great job of making new stars in Aries, Roode and Storm.
