You gotta admit it has gotten better though.

I don't think you have any idea how the wrestling industry works. Solid booking doesn't cause a "boom".

Is there a Floyd Mayweather right around the corner in wrestling?

If AAA still debuting on a major cable network next year and ratings are in the 2 range and more touring in the states, we might have something to talk about.

Off topic: I actually think Roh is probably in it's best financial position ever.

I agree with ROH on the right track. Right now this is the best ROH seen since 08. NWA and TCW i don't think so. And TNA blows plain and simple.

Financially? Yes, probably. They're losing their fanbase though and their identity. They're not in a bad position right now but I wouldn't class it as a good one. Stable sounds best until they get some legit momentum.

I agree with this for the most part.

I don't know if wrestling will ever have another "boom period" (My definition of "boom period" is the Monday Night Wars era). I feel like a "boom" would require WWE having a direct competitor. Somebody they're competing with for the viewers every week. (Not TNA as they're on a day where WWE has no programming on TV).

Mainstream wise, wrestling is going to be good in 5-7 years. Whatever happened with WWE talent relations recently have really made me interested. WWE seems to be slowly signing the top indy guys, which will make for some awesome stuff in the future providing they all make it to TV. On the other hand, the indies are going to take a real hit. Seems like every couple of months they take away a top indy guy, or are rumored to be looking at him. It's good because a lot of these guys really deserve more than the money they make on the indies, but I honestly get really worried when I hear someone's signed. WWE has improved the turnover rate for indy guys, but I still worry that we'll end up seeing one of them get used horribly and released, and when they come back to the indies they don't really have the same buzz to them. (Brent Albright springs to mind, also Colt Cabana to an extent). But like I said above, we need more than a few talented guys in the midcard to make people choose to watch WWE over whatever else is on TV at the same time. (I haven't had cable since late 2009 so I honestly have no idea what that would be. Probably Dancing With The Stars or some stupid shit like that.)

TL;DR: Will wrestling be good? Yes. Will we have a "boom period"? probably not.

More negative comments from the IWC. I'm shocked. Amazing Champ, a boom could be sparked from any of the promotions you mentioned. What the catalyst will be is hard to say. Seems every 10-15 years the business recycles or reinvents itself somehow & becomes mainstream again. I personally think that the boom will come from the south. NWA Smokey Mountain & TCW have been drawing larger crowds than the coastal promotions, which is very impressive, especially when you consider that they run their shows in areas that are not nearly as populated as NY, LA, Philly, ect. Plus they don't get 1/10 of the coverage online that ROH, Dragongate, Chikara, or even Championship Wrestling from Hollywood receive. TCW tapes their shows in Fort Smith @ the same convention center TNA runs a house show every year & they out draw TNA! While the wrestling in ROH is good, the fact that they are exclusive to Sinclair prevents them from getting a deal with a major cable network. I think another boom will take place if/when one of the promotions you mentioned gets a national cable deal in a primetime slot.

Even if all the stars fall in alignment, and wrestling suddenly gets a spark in talent and product, it doesn't mena business will boom again. Society's moved on past wrestling. It's a surprise the product has even lasted so long since the Attitude Era.

I agree with you on that TCW or NWA SMW could be good candidates.
