With wresting as a whole on a downturn...

We need another full blown Monday night war. I know TNA went to Mondays and failed but you can't honestly compete with WWE Programming from the IZ, and with such bad set design and look as a whole. If only Panda were willing to do what Turner did and just pour money into TNA on a whim then they're going to die a slow death. If TNA went live on Mondays now, with WWE's product as bad as it is, and opening an hour after Raw in decent arenas, even using bischoffs old giving out free tickets to Nitro idea, then there may be a window for viewership. Impact being on the road, with WWE quality set design, even copy their barricades and get a 20x20 ring, giving it that big look will surely turn heads. Having Hogan, Sting and Bischoff come out and openly declare War on Vince and WWE, could surely spark a lot of interest in wrestling, being the catalyst for a new, proper Monday Night War.

I know this is my wild fantasy, but man it would be amazing.

As sad as it is but TNA will never ever be a threat to the WWE.

Perhaps, but right now the biggest threat to WWE is itself

Re: With wresting as a whole on a downturn...

I think it's time for wrestling fans to move on, it's not the 90's anymore.
Making shit that was considered brand new 20 years ago won't take you anywhere.

What wrestling needs is a young new hungry mastermind for the business.

vince mcmahon - 67
bruce prichard - 49
jim cornette - 51



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

They didn't fail at all, TNA did great in the ratings apartment when they went to Mondays, the little guys won, in a manner of speaking. WWE promotes sports entertainment, TNA is meant to be promoting wrestling, WWE is the only major player in the 'sports entertainment' sector, perhaps along with MMA, in particular UFC, TNA is the number one wrestling company in the world, if we're going by definition.

TNA will never be a threat to WWE, they will never be in competition.

We need to just move on from this. They cannot financially compete anywhere close to WWE and likely never will be able to bar massive investment.

And who is going to hugely invest in pro wrestling anymore? Nobody.

ECW bit their ankles and they had virtually no budget at all. TNA is owned by the daughter of a billionaire tycoon.
