Re: Are We In For A Wrestling Boom?
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.
