What's the point? Generate clicks.



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.

Don't forget TNA have big audiences on international TV earning them money, not just USA. If they lost Spike it would be a catastrophic loss for them, with that being said i still don't think they'd go under.

Yeah, those Sudanese and Moroccan viewers are really bringing in the cash for TNA.

WCW fans who can't let go of the past are killing pro-wrestling today. There I said it.

I hope they handle these contract negotiations a bit better than the ones with Bobby Roode.... and DOC... and Anderson... and AJ... etc...

IF TNA loses Spike sure its a loss in the US market, but they are doing fantastic overseas and they will continue to grow

Re: TNA Officials Concerned About Their Future With Spike TV & WWE Possibly Replacing

Doesn't matter how well they are doing in countries overseas, if they lose Spike they are D-E-A-D. It is their lifeline and if it goes TNA goes as well. Impact on Challenge in the UK only gets about 180,000 viewers per week. That's just above a fifth of the average Impact viewers in the US.

Only if they landed on another US network. If they lost Spike and didn't get any other network to pick them up they'd die. Wrestling isn't that popular, a company losing money with a deal isn't going to improve without one and the other markets might drop TNA if they don't see them as saying long without a network deal. But I don't think WWE will sign with Viacom anyway to the story will fade.

Re: TNA Officials Concerned About Their Future With Spike TV & WWE Possibly Replacing

I know people within the t.v. and pro wrestling industry, anyways, Comcast / NBC Universal has exclusive negotiating rights to the WWE till March. That means TNA has every right to send feeders out to other networks. As it was mention in a earlier post which was incorrect, FOX Broadcasting Group isn't currently negotiating with the WWE. That would breech Comcast / NBC Universal negotiating rights with the WWE. If Comcast / NBC Universal can't reach a new t.v. rights deal with the WWE by March, then the WWE has the right to seek out other networks. Also, this hasn't been mention but TNA Impact Wrestling is the highest rated program on Spike

To me being a TNA fan, I would like to see if Spike and TNA can't come to agreement I would want to see TNA on FX channel
