Re: TNA the best wrestling product but not getting the ratings - why?
It's on Spike tv, who really wayches that channel? WWE would lose a lot of viwers if it went to Spike tv. TNA needs to be on a more mainstream channel. USA would be a great choice.
WWE used to be on Spike actually. Spike hasn't been as big of a network (ratings-wise) since WWE left it though. I do think Spike has a bit to do with TNA's ratings but as has been stated by others - the channel itself is available in 90 million homes (thus I'm hoping the rebranding plan they have decided to go through with works out --- and they get overall more viewers --- as TNA could be advertised during highly rated shows, hopefully increasing TNA's audience too). Part of the ratings problem could be the day they air as well. Maybe they should try airing a Tuesday or Wednesday episode and see if it increases viewers (as I feel like more people would want to be at home watching TV earlier in the week).
