While not a huge thing, the meteorologist for a CBS station in Texas tweeted Vanguard 1 and said he should add a radar to detect spot monkeys. TNA needs things like that. They are probably not going to get some big exposure/mention that will bring a huge number of new viewers in but they can get a lot of smaller ones to bring in a few new viewers here and there and eventually they will add up.

Paid Wendys? You mean like other companies pay for advertising. How horrible.

Probably nothing significant outside of the business but he has done a lot for TNA in the sense of appealing to wrestling fans who probably haven't paid attention to TNA in a long time.

You can see it in the delete chants around the country and the response he got from the ROH crowd when he appeared at Final Battle. This is a guy that smarks were booing out of the building just a few years ago.

One thing is for sure, if this gimmick were in the WWE and not TNA you would see it everywhere. It would be on the level of the yes stuff with Bryan and the merch sales would be off the charts.

I agree.

My only question is, what can Anthem do to enhance and then capitalize on his popularity?

Haha no. If Broken Matt is so popular, why has the app been such a failure already, why don't the TNA tapings sell out when they have them, they have less than 1k to sell and they can't even manage that, I've seen Indie shows in England sell more tickets than TNA can, why have POP's figures been so shit and getting worse every week, why haven't the press made a big deal about him.

Broken Matt does not draw.

TNA have bent over backwards for him and laid all their eggs in one basket, hoping he takes them to the big leagues and it has all backfired. Matt now has TNA over a barrel trying to get his bumper new (retirement) deal, whilst namedropping WWE every week, he's become a joke and TNA should release him rather than spend another penny on him.

Surely TNA's merch should be off the scales as well then due to how popular a few people on here think he is.

The delete chant wouldn't be on the same level as the yes chant at all. Daniel Bryan was a folk hero, people loved him and his backstory. The YES! chant is up their with the greatest chants of all time. The Delete chant is barely more recognised than the Moose chant in TNA.

Matt is a washed up 42 year old who is acting like a teenager. TNA put all their resources in to him, WWE wouldn't do the same, the Hardyz would be fodder for WWE's stars to walk over, they would end up jobbing to NXT tag teams. The only reason WWE would be interested in them is to take them away from their competition whether it be ROH or TNA.
