Re: TNA Wrestling Announces Major Changes To 2013 Pay-Per-View Strategy
I think the gist is that the overall direction of Impact will be aimed towards building from one major pay-per-view to the next. For example, once Genesis finishes on Sunday, the major weekly build will be for Lockdown in March. The seven smaller pay-per-views are just gimmick specials, as you can see from the show previews posted earlier in this thread. It's nothing at all like the In Your House setup WWE had in the mid-to-late '90s, which were, in fact, just regular-styled pay-per-views, stripped down. With that said, if the upcoming mini-ppv is, say, X-Division-themed, I would expect that branch of the roster to get some build towards that specific show on Impact, but the overall show will be aimed towards the next major pay-per-view.
