Re: TNA Wrestling Announces Major Changes To 2013 Pay-Per-View Strategy
^They are pre-taped in Impact Zone.
-If you're going to have PPVs dedicated to the X-Division then you need to build the division up.
-Friday is a terrible night for wrestling.
-They don't need 7 TNA One Night Only Shows. Can you imagine them doing a One Night Only Show on the first friday of the month 3 weeks after 1 of the big 4 PPV's? Not good.
-The structure allows for better build to important matches & moments. Huge positive.
Another thing about these PPV specials, they probably won't be available to purchase the 1st evening it airs. It will probably be up for like 3 or 4 weeks. It seems like the Unfinished Business special has been available to order for like a month now. So you wouldn't have to order the show on a Friday night and TNA are probably counting on some fans who read/hear good things about the show's wrestling quality will order it (although many will still probably just downloaded it off some torrent) and casual who happen to see it on their PPV list or when TNA advertises it will make a purchase. It's something new for TNA and if they lose more money than they make they will likely change up their strategy again.
