Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013



Why are TNA's ratings even being bought up in a WWE ratings discussion thread?

Is this the desperation that some WWE fans will now stoop to?

Good grief.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

TNA won't be on the same level as WWE like WCW was, because they don't have the money to throw at it like Ted Turner did. He had a shitload of money. . .has a small fraction of it.

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.

I've never watched TNA. Don't they get a 1 rating most weeks? I don't think WWE will ever fall that hard.

Did I miss something or did we not get the quarter-by-quarter ratings this week?

You should. I know Tony just said that, but I figured I'd say it too since, you know, he's Tony.

Actually, WWE has already fallen a lot harder. They once got a 8.1 and used to get monthly averages of 6's and now are getting 2's without and 3's with Rock.

TNA has only fallen from a 1.45 to their average 1.0 rating.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Tony makes one post ---> WWE ratings thread turns into TNA ratings thread.

Can't really say one show is better than the other based on ratings alone. TNA has marketable stars loaded with mic skills/charisma and even looks and they still get far less ratings than WWE simply due to the lower brand value. I'm sure guys like James Storm, Robert Roode, Austin Aries, AJ Styles, Joseph Park, Christopher Daniels, Kaz and oldtimers like Hardy and Angle would do just fine ratings wise if they were in the WWE. Can't compare the two like that.
