But again...how is the merch REALLY selling? TNA could only have 20 Joey Ryan shirts and sell them in a week. Does that mean the Joey Ryan brand is hot? I will see on this coming Impact how many people are wearing the gear and will eat humble pie if I spot more then 10 people. If its over its over. But I don't it is.

Fair enough, but you'd have to think they'd order a fair amount for a debuting product in a world market.

Well they had the whole website aces and eights themed and now are out permanently of the regular aces shirts - unless its on some cartmanland style marketing or someone didn't buy enough shirts i think they surpassed expectations on it.

The shirts sold out at the pikeville house show I attended. They were gone before the first match.

its really embarrassing that the angle which had the potential to be one of the coolest invasion storyline, became one of the lamest one for months, and then suddenly becoming a lively one again because of just one person and thats Bully Ray. Its just too late. People are not tuning into Impact much these days, because for almost 4 months before LockDown TNA basically was just wrestling with very little Storyline. Just bad timing for Aces and Eights.

Didn't see an astronomical number while watching Impact, although I did see a few fans wearing the shirts. Don't know why one has to be jaded towards the comments here. Take them at their word. It's merch. Even lower card workers in promotions can sell merch. Isn't like they're trying to enhance television ratings or attendance sellouts.

I agree even lower tier workers can sell merch but they never sellout merch. By selling out merch TNA is making more money off Aces and Eights then they were previously making, which is a good thing.

Indeed. And only serves to the point of how I doubt TNA is trying to fluff up any numbers here. If lower card workers can move merch, than a major angle within TNA selling out of merch only averages out in believable fashion.
