Re: WWE trying to block possible TNA taping venues
When selling a product, you need to appeal to your market, you need to draw them in and sell yourself. This is why Coke and Pepsi market their products differntly while selling pretty much the same thing. If Pepsi were to go out of business does that mean Coke would rake in a huge profit?
Infact the death of Pepsi would damge the Cola market, which would in essence deflate sales of Coca Cola. Why? Becuase with no competition interest in Cola would go down therefore while Coca Cola now own the market they will not reap as many rewards as one might think.
The same can be said for wrestling. When WCW died did those fans then suddenly tune into WWE? No. They didn't otherwise WWE ratings would have doubled. Instead they stopped watching because their brand of choice was no longer around. They had had thier ability to pick something for them taken away and therefore no amount of Marketing by WWE is going to bring those fans in. (The same can be said for ECW fans and Attitude Era fans who stopped watching once that era was over, they only tune in every so often if someone like The Rock makes a return.)
So if WWE fans and wrestling fans tuned into TNA, and TNA started to take hold of a decent sized chunk of the Market, then WWE would benefit, not just financially but creatively. For wrestling to make a come back guess what people need to start doing? WATCH MORE WRESTLING. Not just WWE. It's simple. So if you want change in WWE, if you are growing tired of it; then watch TNA, give their ratings a boost and WWE will take notice. Instead of shitting on them and repeating things others say about the product. Just because you like The Walking Dead doesn't mean you can't watch Game of Thrones; this is how ridiculous wrestling fans are.
I watch both WWE & TNA, I enjoy both just like I enjoy Japanese Wrestling and Lucha.
