Default New Japan is the 2nd biggest promotion worldwide

In terms of attendance and revenue, yet most treat it like it's some indy promotion. With a little more exposure in North America, I think it'd give WWE a run for it's money. The language barrier does pose a problem though.

Last time i checked the position of a company is determined by the money it makes and it's clearly number 2 behind wwe, and wwe is always very worried when they decide to go to japan cause they really don't draw there.

It wouldn't pose legit competition to WWE but it can increase its momentum by getting english commentators.

tna has more worldwide exposure, but new japan is definitely number 2 in revenue, and if not for cheap tickets in mexico probably would be undoubtedly number 2 in attendance as well.

Default Re: New Japan is the 2nd biggest promition worldwide

I'd have to agree that TNA is the #2 promotion. NJPW is far superior in every way IMO but they aren't global enough to be #2 worldwide. They're the WWE of the Western world IMO. They wouldn't draw a lot internationally compared to what TNA/WWE would. I think NJPW is overhyped a lot by the internet. Outside of the internet wrestling fanbase they aren't really known, hence why they're thrown into the "Other Wrestling" category on here and don't have a full section.

You obviously know nothing about this topic so why are you commenting again? That second sentence is beyond ignorant.

We had a debate about this a few months back. NJPW is without a doubt no.2 in the world.

Atleast they can draw in their own country

And anyway, they are coming over to the States for some shows with ROH and they are drawing more than a regular TNA show

Metrics in Pro Wrestling go like this.

1. TV revenue
2. Pay Per Revenue (WWE Network might change this slightly, but the network is a "Pay Per View" model.)
3. Attendance
4. Merchandise

I assure you this is dead on, just get on the WWE's conference call.

I'm putting ad revenue in the TV, Pay Per View and Attendance/live event categories respectively.

The reason I think TNA is bigger than New Japan is because they're on TV. I don't know how many shows a month they do over there but even though TNA might be embarressing at times because of low attendance, even those mega shows NJPW does every so often where they fill a big arena don't equal the million plus who watch every week and the money that TNA gets from that.
