Re: As a TNA fan...it hurts me to say this
TNA has no long term gain from signing WWE guys, and even little short term gain tbh. The current stars aren't that big outside of the WWE, they mostly draw within the WWE Universe but not beyond that. Cena is the only big time draw that would add to their ratings and the amount of burials he would do in TNA would be even worse than his Superman stuff in the WWE. TNAs best bet is to try to expand their brand name over the years and hope to keep getting bigger bit by bit, but they won't hit 2.0s or even 1.5s anytime soon.
