Nope. Their main TV shows are still on cable/broadcast.

After that main event, they'll be lucky to get on Syfy at 2 AM.

Raw/SD are staying on TV. They're just gonna be on the WWE Network AFTER they air.

After that show TNA deserves to go under. They are not an alternative to WWE. They are shit, a giant cluster fuck to give mark dixie TV time and attention. That's what TNA is. It's like if some random idiot on here won the lottery and bought a promotion to hire old guys and put themselves on TV. It's shit and needs to die and hopefully something better will take its place.

They could always have Impact on the Orlando High Student News Network that plays on the TV bulletin boards every day at lunch period.

DirecTV may cancel future WWE PPV events

It could be a great opportunity for TNA to step in and do something with DirectTV.

Same type of over reaching special wording stuff you normally see with TNA being applied to WWE. Nobody is gonna deny good money.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

A wrestling company (not just TNA) could make nice money through an internet show. Divide the show into 4 segments of 30 minutes, try to keep the same 1 million viewers, and with some people watching multiple times you could rake in 10 million views per show, that should be enough to finance a wrestling show. However... this only applies when the production cost of your show is reasonable, which is not the case for TNA. Their 'on the road' shows cost $600k, and most likely they are still at $300k-ish right now. Even with 10+ million youtube views thats not going to cover their expenses.

I'd love to see some prowrestling company try to create a professional show for Youtube viewing, its definately possible to become profitable when you attract enough views, but its too late for TNA unless they completely rebuild their roster with people working for $250 an appearance.

I don't think wrestling works wihout a TV Show. Maybe a second brand could work on youtube, and i'll admit having a show online drawing good numbers is a good way to get a TV deal. But if any company wants to travel that road i ask please make your show schedule understandable and regular.
