Default What TNA should do

TNA needs a proper home... If I was TNA I'd go buy an old K-Mart or Warehouse and turn it into an arena that sits 1500 people. Put it in a City like Memphis, Atlanta, or Dallas.

Charge a minimal fee per ticket like $8.00 for the cheap seats and $20 per floor seats. Run the merch and food yourself.

Then run half the tapings out of the arena and go on the road for the rest.

They could also rent out the Arena to Boxing and MMA Promotions

The place would be empty every week. How are you meant to get people in the same town to show up every week? And you would lose your ass flying the wrestlers out to those areas each week.

Universal was perfect. The building rent was cheap and you had families on holiday from all over the world willing to show up and watch.

Fixed. The problem was the crowds tend to be dead most times. Also when they got moved to the new set it sucked compared to the old one.

For the OP, how does one move a building to a city. I think you mean to BUY it in one of those cities. If they were to do something like that they might as well look for an old arena that might be for sell. Constrution to an exsisting building for thier needs could be expensive. Plus they might be limited due to zoning.

Memphis was selling out the mid south colliseum every Monday Night.

It wouldn't be that hard if you picked a good wrestling city and kept the ticket cost down.

You could also do local fundraisers.... Lets say your tickets sell for $10.00 each. You approach a High School Football team have them buy 400 tickets at $5.00 EA then they turn around and sell them for $10.00 Each.

That was mostly pre cable. Different era. Not saying it could not happen just that it is not likely. Can not predict the now based on the then.

WWF sold out MSG every month in the 70s. Why doesn't WWE started running there again? Aside from the fact it isnt 1970 anymore.

well the WWE was running out of the Manhatten Center every other Monday in the early 1990's.

ECW drew well in Philly every month.

Point is TNA could buy an Arena for about $700,000 drop $300k into it... Call it the Panda Energy Center.

Lets say TNA runs shows twice a month...

24 shows X 1,500 fans X $25 Each ($25.00 is Ticket, Merch, and Food) = $900,000.00 per year. Lets just say half of that goes to Security, Bills, Food Etc. You should still be able to make $400K.

You could even build TNA offices and a Training Center in one part of the arena maybe even some dorm rooms for the Wrestlers.

GWF had a nice set up in the Sportatorium.

In a stunning reveal we learn that NWA4Lyfe IS Jim Cornette! In all seriousness though, wrestling as a whole is going through hard times and no one has the answer just yet. Will it ever recover to what it once was, probably not. If Vince is having a hard time making money, then we know just how bad it is out there for anyone else.

TNA needs a proper home.. About 1000 is fine, and make the cost low. It would almost sell out every 2 weeks (2 shows per night) + go on the road from time to time.
