What a hilarious post. This is a vastly unsuccessful company that has had huge money backing. You literally couldn't do much worse than they have with all the money put into it. Read Jerry Jarretts book. It look them 10s of millions to get their Fox Sports Net deal (which they had to pay for). Without putting all that money into it, they wouldn't have gotten the Spike deal. They had to lose their ass to get on TV. That isnt a good business model. If you have the money, you can get on TV. Dixie's Dad had the money. She didn't have it in her to run this company past the level of pumping a shitload of money into it. Do you even have a job in real life? Basic common sense based on the standard level of life experience should tell you what you are getting hiring the same people that were in WCW. Hulk Hogan fucked them in 2003. Hulk Hogan did an angle where they built up a PPV and he just told them to fuck off in 2003. How do you hire someone like him after that? Yet they hired him after he lost all his money? It was obvious what he was in TNA for. And that was proved correct. The theories I've presented were said by EVERYONE both on the internet, in the wrestling media and personalities outside of TNA. They are all red herrings they should have avoided. But they didn't. Thats why they are fucked. Defend it all you like. Its the same excuses people still give when WCW died a death.
It's not a defense dude. It's just me attacking you because you prance around here claiming you know stuff but the facts you have is based around rumors, it's based around internet-facts and a thing you call common sense.
I didn't know it was Hogan, Bischoff and Russo who ruined WCW and put it out of business. That's is just one of those examples that you are going by. The same old narrative that seems to thrive among the internet-wrestling-smarks that love gossip and to know it all about the business, they don't actually know anything about except rumors, gossip and claimed financials.
Can you please give me the exact financial numbers, from each year TNA has been alive? Can you give me cold-hearted facts about the financial of the private company, TNA? Please understand this, you're making claims without having actual facts to back those claims. You don't know about TNA's financials, you don't know about buy-rates, you don't know about incomes and expenses and who's a draw financial-wise, it's guesses, rumors and "facts" from dirtsheets. They are confidential and claiming you know confidential information just makes you look like a big idiot.
But for the conversation-sake what's your position? What do you do? Do you have experience from television-production? Business? Wrestling?
Also I ran a lemonade stand when I was 8. Which means I've ran a more profitable business than TNA. They are tens of millions behind my business model. They should give me a call.
I listened to a guy getting angry at a fan who runs a podcast. Well done to Bischoff. He alienated one guy and made himself look like a fucking idiot in the process. Bischoff is a PR
nightmare. His skin is so thin. He had EVERYTHING in 1996. Backing from one of the worlds most powerful business men. He had WWF on the ropes. Now he's calling some nerd who runs a podcast. How the mighty have fallen. Take away all WCW's resources and a Hulk Hogan with box office pull, and Bischoff isnt much of anything.
And Bischoff isnt even in TNA anymore. How did that work out for you Eric?
Now you're talking around the topic and once again talk about Bischoff in a way to avoid the actual conversation. Please, once again listen to it and respond properly.
