The ratings have stayed the same and the buyrates have gone in the toilet.
Bischoff Hervey Entertainment is one of the three brands he helped make into a million dollar brand.
TNA PPV buy rates are not released by TNA and speaking as someone with a business and marketing degree I can tell you even if those numbers were legit the person or persons who released that info without Panda or Carters okay first would be liable for prosecution and a civil case against them. Try taking a first level course in business law and then come back and talk. For those of us who have gone to college and walked the walk we all know that this idea that dirt sheets can even get this information much less release it is so farfetched that the series Prison Break would look realistic.
Many of the ideas in WWE were his ideas, some of them he talks about in his book.
In WCW he had a great deal of success from 1995 – March 1999. But he could not control the AOL suits taking over WCW by mid-1998. It was out of his control and the idea that the death of WCW was in anyway his fault is downright retarded.
TNA viewership has gone up since 2009 by a fair margin. How can you or anyone else expect a network like Spike that only has TNA that draws for them to gather an average TV rating for the network beyond a 1.5 is beyond me? Math can be your friend if you use it right
