Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

In 2013 they need to do this

-Hold Lockdown in Philadelphia or Lowell - old home of ECW, perfect for a night of all steel cage matches. Lowell is the highest drawing Lockdown to date.
-Hold Slammiversary in Arlington - was very successful this year, might as well keep it there.
-Hold Bound For Glory in New York, Chicago, or North Carolina - huge markets which could do very well with some advertising, especially with Hardy in NC.
-Take advantage of their viewing audience in the UK and make a tour there, shoot possibly 2 tapings.
-Take advantage of their viewing audience from Ring Ka King in India and push a taping there.
-Advertise as many IMPACT Stars locally as possible, even plastering their images in the Universal area.
-Maybe do a week or two's worth of live shows in Universal Hollywood
-Reduce the amount of Payperviews in a year to 7 or 8.

Otherwise stay in the IMPACT Zone.

Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

People complain about the IZ looking bush league, yet they want TNA to go out on the road every week when they can barely get 3000 for BFG with months of build and promotion? If they did go on the road they'd be playing tiny venues with low production values. Then again, at least they'd have proper, rabid fans there. Trouble is, there'd only be 400 of them....

The IZ as a venue is fine - it's pretty big, has lasers, pyro, pro light set-up and big screens. Plus it's very low cost. Given their financial constraints, what they need to figure out is how to get actual fans in there rather than tourists. RoH or Chikara would kill for such a venue.

They might have more joy with trying to take every PPV out of the IZ, though. That would mean a non-IZ show every 5 weeks or so.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, they could also film more when they are on the road - (would filming in Dublin and Manchester add that much to their costs when they are already half way across the world? They could fill a month of TV programming just by filming in a few extra places on their European tour). In fact, even smaller venues like Nottingham are fairly comparable to some of the places they play for PPVs in the US. I know this would mean having several weeks of storylines pre-prepared as well as different matches at every show - a lot of pre-production - but if they did this they could get almost 6-8 weeks of arena shows out of a tour that they are already doing.

And the fans would be rabid.

And the guys who joined TNA because they don't travel much would still be happy as they'd be on the tour anyway. It's win-win.

Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

TNA had more rating in 2007-2009 than they do now and do you know why? Most likely because of the x-devision, lets face it the x-devision matches were so entertaining and un-predictable. Steel Asylum was one of the best matches I've saw with TNA, also bringing back Don West on commentary would help as he is of the best at making OMG moments jizz worthy. I know TNA will never bring back six sides but that was one of the best things in my mind about them because it was different, Airing TNA on Thursday nights down here in the UK would also help because I have to wait till Sunday if I want to watch it and I can't be bothered waiting that long so I watch it on youtube or a website like 99% of UK viewers

They should do two tapings per arena.

Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

I dont care about the product. Hell i dont care if its in the same areana every week. The problem with the Impact Zone. Is the right people not being cheered. Real fans would Cheer the shit out of Austin over Jeff. As they did at BFG on the road. Jeff is not the big star they want u to think. Impact zone fans are casual and would cheer for jeff. Wrestling fans that follow dont.

So getting bullshit cheers cus some guy behind the camera tells the crowd to do it.That kinda shit is a huge problem. Holds a company back big time. Screws up decisions and durection.

BFG we saw Austin Aries an amazing talent get a bigger pop then Jeff. Enough said

Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

I think they should book college campuses. Cut some deals, get good crowds, small enough venues but not too big to make them look amateur league...be consistent and advertise advertise advertise. If they can show venues that they can bring in money from the surrounding community it would help them so much and really aid them in moving away from looking bush league with the big boys.

Says who? Dave Meltzer who just made the number up more like.

when compared to past shows, BFG definitely looked like it hit the 4,000 mark.

It was moreso the Knockouts who weren't presented as wannabe WWE divas like they are in recent times.

And yes they NEED to get out of the IZ. Stop with the economy excuse. This isn't 2008-2009(when things were much worse yet they went on the road more). Stop with the budget excuse; Panda has the money to do at least a nice amount of shows away from the IZ. College campuses, rec-centers/convention centers/etc. would suffice; they don't have to do NBA/NHL-type arenas right off the bat y'know.

If not every Impact, at least the PPVs(which should be reduced to 6-7).

Re: Hogan wants TNA out of the IZ

The impact zone has been good to them and helped keep costs down. Going on the road will cause higher expenses and lower production values but it should be worth it after a couple of years. I've never liked PPV's being done at the impact zone, it just seems like a waste. I get that doing live broadcasts is taxing and costly but if it's a PPV then they should put in the effort.

Funny how people think that just because TNA are owned by a multi-billion company that they would just throw money at TNA. Janice Carter makes sure that TNA's expenses are very tight. They don't spend too much on TNA and the only reason they bought a majority stake in the company is because Dixie promised them that they'll make a profit for them or at least break even. With the on-the-road shows, even Dixie knows that it would be difficult for them to even break even. The Impact Zone is one of the biggest reasons for TNA's longevity in the business. If TNA were to tour every other week, they would be losing hundreds of thousands of dollars every year, maybe even millions. If it made any business sense at all, they would obviously be doing it more often.
