Re: Bruce Prichard Wants The Knockout Division GONE?

Women's wrestling is like women's basketball. Nobody gives a shit about it. Not to mention it's a just burden to maintain. It isn't about women being wrestlers, the problem is ALL women's wrestling is just inferior to men's wrestling. Period. They are all around 140 pounds, but move like they're 350. In comparison, a 180 pound guy like Sonjay can do all kinds of stunts and high flying moves, and what can the women do? At such a light weight, they can't do any stunts. They can't do high impact moves either, can't cut promos, their matches have absolutely zero intensity. Besides looking hot, I honestly can't think of one thing they can do. So if anything, just bring back the cage girls.

And funny now all of a sudden, people want to talk ratings as if they matter. If anything, they have to put Hogan on the entire show, I mean didn't his segment got a 2.0 rating or something? People, you can't just pick and choose here. The knockout division doesn't draw.

No wonder WWE can never win with everyone because most are just looking for some super technical explanation on why something was not done right.

A "draw" is someone that people will PAY to see. That's it. That's the definition. In the most layman terms possible.

So, TNA included Mickie, Gail and Tara prominently in the BfG spots in between all the upperard guys (OK, and Gunner...) for what? Because nobody wants to see them? Because nobody gives a fuck? Because they want to avoid lawsuits from female rights organizations?

Simple question: Have you ever bought a Pay-Per-View solely for the women's match? Nothing else on the card interested you, you just couldn't miss that woman's match.

So? Hogan got the highest rating in the history of TNA, why isn't he on TV 24/7?

No, I haven't. They just have one match out of seven/eight/nine matches on a pay-per-view. Question back: Why does TNA always have one Knockout and one male talent at DirectAuto signings before a live event? Must be because nobody cares for them...

Well, by that logic then nobody in TNA is a draw, seeing as how you can get into the impact zone for free. Except for when they go on the road, where, last time I checked people were paying to see shows which had the knockouts on them. Also to your other question, way back when, people were buying PPVs just to see Kong/Gail Kim go at it. They main evented an impact once.
