2013 the year TNA comes closer to WWE?

Over the years WWE has dominated the wrestling business and it still does, it has been the number 1 wrestling promotion for years now with TNA being a far off number 2 promotion, WWE makes more money then them, has better ratings gets bigger ppv buys etc.

However with TNA's recent big decisions of cutting down the ppv's and the most recent one of going on the road permanently, TNA has big potential in 2013, ratings could rise, bigger crowds will experience tna, ppv buys might get bigger, it has a lot of potential to succeed with its recent decisions.

As a fan on tna since 2006 i myself would love TNA to become a bigger powerhouse in the wrestling business, and edge closer in taking the number one spot from wwe.

So what do you guys think about TNA competing more with WWE in 2013, and possibly kicking off a major year in the starting to take the number 1 wrestling promotion position in the future maybe in like 4-5 years time? give us your thoughts.

Not 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: 2013 the year TNA comes closer to WWE?

I would absolutely love it, but it seems a very unrealistic goal to overtake the E right now. The E's dominance in terms of name and marketing is astounding, they seem to have the ability to indoctrinate their audience in to thinking that they are the only promotion that exists. Getting closer in ratings though? Yes. Bigger Crowds will bring a better feel to the show and then when Impact comes to their area, they will want to go.

Try thinking.

This is all I wanted from TNA. I wanted them to be a legitimate No. 2 in this business, and they weren't going to be that when they were taping the show every week in front of 1,000 fans. I hope this works out for TNA in the long run and they grow from here.

Oh Christ...THIS thread again.

No, dream on. TNA is nowhere near WWE and likely never will be anywhere near WWE. They are on two totally different planets size-wise.

Accept it and move on.

Its never going to happen. Ever. Anybody thinking otherwise is a Tony316-like deluded mark.

You could have the best "office" in the world, it won't change the facts. And 6 years ago it was as impossible as today.

Re: 2013 the year TNA comes closer to WWE?

The biggest problem for TNA is marketing, even though they have some of the biggest names in wrestling history, they don't come off a larger then life in TNA like they do in WWE.

Re: 2013 the year TNA comes closer to WWE?

I would absolutely LOVE if people would stop measuring everything Impact Wrestling does against WWE. But since I know that that will never happen, we must continue to endure such talk. All it does is encourage elitist WWE fans/Impact Wrestling haters and negative people to trash the promotion. I am always suspicious of the motivations of people who make threads like this. *sigh*

But, okay, to play along just by responding to to the general title. I think that they have the potential to become more popular than WWE. Bigger? Maybe down the line. But so what??? If they provide a great product and promote it, if they provide a great product and promote it, and oh, if they provide a great product and promote it, fans will be there. WHY do they NEED to have the same number of WWE fans or whatever WWE has? They have what they have and what they have is a lot to real fans of the promotion. Why can't people learn to live without compulsively needing to compare every single thing that exists on this earth? Boggles the mind.

If they grow and they are as successful as they can be then it's wonderful. I would instead fear if they became like WWE, which, to me, is a step in the wrong direction. Doing well but constantly comparing yourself negatively against something/one else is like being a beautiful woman who is never satisfied with her appearance; in a word: stupid. One thing people have complained about over the years is TNA's focus on WWE. Well, it seems like they're trying to do their own thing now and they're progressing. Idgaf if they never have what WWE "has" because what do they have to me that's better than what TNA has? More fans? So??? How does that affect the product I enjoy in any way? They have a better show, more interesting/mature storylines and wrestlers, and I'm fine with their production value, and it's nice that they're getting out of the Impact Zone but I still liked them regardless if they were in it because it was about the wrestling, the company, the product. If they succeed on their own terms rather than trying to nip at the heels of WWE, I'll be far more impressed.

This kind of thread serves almost a single purpose: to service the irrational, pathetic pride of WWE-exclusive fans who will jump at the opportunity to say, "No, they never will." And if they don't, I, as a real fan of wrestling, will always follow whoever is providing the superior product, whether they're on the road, in the Impact Zone, or in a school gym.

Please try to digest this way of thinking and you will enjoy yourself far more. People kill me with using words like "legitimate" just because they're on the road now. smdh So I guess WCW weren't legitimate either when they were performing at Disney/Universal Studios. Gtfoh.

Honestly, my apologies; I HATE rants, but I just had to do it. Not trying to jump on you, OP, but still, come on. I'm not obsessed with TNA beating WWE (we have seen what a virtual monopoly can do to a product), but competition would be great. Then maybe WWE can remember why people came to the dance in the first place. So if that was your point, OP, then I understand where you're coming from.

And I like Tony's enthusiasm, actually.
