Unless TNA gets sold to a big company or some rich bastard like Mark Cuban, it's never going to legitimately compete with WWE. Mark Cuban would probably throw money at that shit, but he's a WWE fan.
Different times, different era's.
In the UK TNA is now bigger then WWE.
Sky the company who broadcast WWE here bought TNA's channel and have heavily advertised it.
If you said something like that would happen 10 years ago people would of laughed.
Point being TNA does not need to increase it's spending because WWE is decreasing. Something that was getting an 8 rating is now getting 2's. If the trend continues then that will fall further. As it declines so does the amount of money it can generate. It is pretty obvious the reason they have a third hour right now is because they wanted more time for advertising. That might give them a bit extra cash but it annoys fans and they will switch off because of it.
TNA doesn't need to do anything but wait. WWE is killing themselves. Those awards should always be taken with a pinch of salt imo but right now I think few true wrestling fans would say RAW is better then Impact right now. TNA went away and re-invented itself. Tried new things. A lot of them sucked but now they have the right balance. WWE is too scared to try anything new and because of that it will stay in the death spiral it is in right now.
