Some indy promotions can do that.

Re: TNA is going on the road starting in March!

I think this will help TNA across the board. Ratings will improve because people wont be forced into staring at the shitty IZ. Signing new talent will be somewhat easier (not saying they can go out and sign whoever the fuck they want)because some (young) wrestlers dont mind the travel. Advertising is a must if traveling is something TNA wants to keep, its the one thing i am the most worried about. Hopefully TNA doesnt try to fill arenas that are just too big for them, right now.

Re: TNA is going on the road starting in March!

My God Tony, shut up man. You are so damm annoying.

This is good news, but it wont last. They cant sell enough tickets to make money from doing this on a permanent basis, they couldn't even
come close to selling out their biggest PPV of the year so there is no way they will be able to do it for a weekly show each week.

My prediction is this will last a few months and then they will be back in the IZ.

They didn't get 3000, and go and look at the pictures of the crowd, only the camera side was close to being full the other side wasn't even half-full.

For their biggest PPV of the year it IS terrible and you are deluded if you think otherwise.

They can barely get over 3000 for their biggest PPVs so what on earth makes anybody think they can go on the road and make in financially viable?

I give this 6 months tops.

It's all about the venues the company will choose! I love your negativity by the way! Makes me laugh.

Looks good to me, they don't have to sell out every arena. Give them 3000 fans every BFG and I won't complain.
But no this isn't permanent, unless they get big numbers... which isn't gonna happen.



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.

Re: TNA is going on the road starting in March!

It's a necessary move, but they've got to be prepared to underwrite the cost of these shows for at least a year, before they gain any tangible benefits. Financially it's not going to be pretty for a fair while.

Mayorga on BJ: Real men fight- maricons roll on ground and wrestle. Boxeo is número UNO! Tell BJ to box me- after I KO him, I will put him not in a body bag but in a condom so he can think that’s where he shud have stayed

Mayorga on facing Vargas: I'm going to give Vargas the chance to cash his last paycheck. I would like to say publicly that Fatty Vargas has always feared me. I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

THANK YOU TONY! At least give them a chance. At least now they will have FANS that actually PAY for a ticket rather than having tourist receive free tickets. If TNA can average about 1500 people at the shows id be more than pleased with that. Everyone keeps forgetting that they have to start somewhere. Perfect timing, the E isnt what it was before and TNA just got done taping some of the most important shows in the brands history.

Now I realise that you are a troll and a very good one at that, but what I'm being is called being 'realistic'.

It is a fact that TNA do not sell enough tickets on the road to make it financially viable, I see nothing that has changed. The economy is bad, WWE have a monopoly in the wrestling business.

I dont see anyway in which they can get this to work full-time.
