Actually your wrong. One night only because each PPV is a different theme. Your not getting an X Division show 7 times a year that is dubbed One Night Only.

June 9th - Slammiversary
(Four-month gap)
October 13th - Bound For Glory
(Three-month gap)

I hope they change this schedule. If they keep it the same, that would mean Lockdown would get only two months of build, yet Genesis itself would get three months of build. Bound For Glory would get four months. I'm not sure what to think of that. It's a bit too long for my liking. Nonetheless, I would prefer that if any of the PPV's build has to get cut by one month, it should be Genesis. Lockdown is definitely a bigger PPV than Genesis. Put Genesis in December and problem would be solved, though that would defeat the whole purpose of the name "Genesis". They could rename the December PPV Final Resolution.
Genesis is the first PPV pf the year and a way to restart and take fresh directions...three months in between BFG and Genesis is not a bad thing. Genesis will likely be moving from a "B" show to an "A" show starting next year. It affords them the luxury of 3 months to wrap up and conclude certain storylines and feuds while planting seeds for the new year. It also likely means some big rematches on free TV post BFG.

Instead of having a year ending PPV like Final Resolution they can just have a big 3 hour Impact in late November/early December (and with a little luck a commercial free episode) where they can wrap up some of those storylines and begin to water the planted seeds leading in to the new year.

The one thing I hope they take into serious consideration is title changes on the big 4. This year at BFG they had 4 of the 5 titles change hands (I don't count the KO's Tag straps) and I don't think they should be looking to move 4 or 5 titles at each and every big show. They will need to find balance in moving the straps and it's obvious Impact will need to see some titles changes.

Hopefully this means fewer throwaway 3 minutes matches on TV like last night with King and Ion, and even certain Gutcheck matches when you have 2 guys who can deliver like last night. More time in between big shows should mean less rush towards fitting everything in 4 week periods thus hopefully longer and more meaningful matches and slower developing stories. By slower I mean we won't need developments for every ongoing story each and every week.

As for the Option "C", perhaps they need a 3 hour Impact 2-3 weeks post Slammiversary where the XD Champ has the option to cash in or not and main event a sort of special edition of "Championship Thursday". Perhaps this 3 hour Impact won't be completely commercial free but the last hour should be so as to have an uninterrupted main event. It also would add a level of importance to the XD Title match at Slammiversary each and every year as whoever leaves with that strap leaves with a big decision on his hands (or at least that can play it up as such).

how do you guys know about these names and dates. I cant find it anywhere on the site. So i dont know how it would be released to the public otherwise.

Regardless most of these are amazing ideas.Some taking them back to the roots. The hardcore justice and knockouts are probably the worst ones. TNA World Cup of Wrestling sounds amazing but im still a bit confused on the idea. Sounds like it could be the best wrestling tournament ever.Making it a entire wrestling world cup. Best in the world to win. These are the ideas that make wrestling good and feel classic and pure.

Very interested in the 2 ring idea. I think they need to use two 6 sided rings. If you draw 2 of those rings put together.It acutely makes a very cool looking idea.Much more interesting then the two 4 sided rings we have seen in the past.

TNA world cup of wrestling -That just sounds more bad ass then any event. World cup of all wrestling.

Rather it said "Impact Wrestling's World cup of wrestling" Maybe one day

Genesis won't be an indicator of how this format will work since they just announced it the same week as Genesis, so obviously it isn't in full swing yet.

We'll see how they do with Lockdown. That'll be the test.

We don't know how many people buy the PPVs anyway so who gives a shit.

TNA Wrestling has needed to make a change like this for the last few years. The PPV business has changed so much, that buy rates have become so low, that it is not cost effective to run so many LIVE PPV's. The market of wrestling has become so saturated with lots of PPV's in TNA and WWE, that it is affecting the storyline build up and people are not buying the events. Why pay $30 to see Jeff Hardy Vs Austin Aries, when you know they will have a rematch on free TV 2 weeks later? TNA in recent months has left it to the last minute to promote a PPV Card for the B shows and the cut backs on the PPV's have been talked about for a while now.

This is a great move for TNA, they will have time to develop story lines and make the 4 remaining events become even more special. These shows will be on the road and will feel like major league events, with the best cards being on these shows.
The One Night Only shows I am all for because this is about nostalgia, bringing back past names for special shows and also gives more match time to wrestlers not used much on TV. The X Division seems to have a few One Night Only Shows and this will give them more match time and hopefully be able to show off there talents. The Destination X PPV is one show I will miss, but hope TNA use an episode of Impact to still do this event.

Best business move TNA has done in years. 2013 is a crucial year for the company because in 2014 there Spike TV Contract comes due in October 2014. So it is important they use Impact to build these PPV's and get the ratings up.

Would anyone pay for a taped PPV?

The live PPVs barely can catch a significant amount of interest to be honest. Why would I pay for something when I can Google the results?

Smackdown never did anything for me just for that reason, why would I stay in and watch a pre-recorded event when I can go out and do something and catch a stream later since I can find out the results probably days before the ppv.

Seems like they're doing everything to save money on the product, why? So they can give Hogan a larger cut....
