Portugal for example is in the middle of a huge economic crisis, people don't have money for entertainment anymore. It has nothing to do how the show does in ratings, it's all about the market as a touring place, UK is a solid country to tour because of their long history with wrestling... the rest is a risk.
If the japan rumor is true, then that's another solid market to work with.
The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
