Uhhmm what?

I don't get your point.

Dixies tried for a rather long time cutting these PPVs which wasn't possible for varius reasons. And they still do the taped stipulation PPVs for the international market to fullfill their contractual obligations overseas.

So, are your saying Dixie trys to "lose millions by cutting the PPVs" and that for quite some time now? I know Dixie is not known for her business sense, but she isn't that stupid.

According to the sheets TNA needs (if I remember correctly) something like 12k buys for an IZ PPV to get even. Not sure where you see all these millions get lost!?!



Could you please post that interview in which Dixie allegedly said they were LOSING money by cutting the ppvs?

Why would they do it if there was any truth to that?

It's kinda funny how some people think everyone who does not think TNA is the greatest product on the planet is a WWE mark. Especially when there was nothing good nor bad said about either product in the previous post. Wait, that's wrong. I said TNA's product got better. Obvious WWE mark is obvious?!?

Sounds a little bit like an inferiority complex to me.

Obviously could be wrong with that too.

I was responding to the person who said TNA are 'saving money' by cutting the PPV's when they are not, they are losing it.

To cut down the PPVs was a difficult decision because you’re giving away millions of dollars to both your top line as well as the profit line on the balance sheet. We do have success in that.

you misunderstand, they are losing how much profit they could earn but also lose that much in paying for pay per views and arenas

in short they wont earn 3000 a year, but spend 2000 on all the the ppvs (exsample)


So yes they are losing the chance to get people to buy tickets etc but they wont have to pay every single month either, and with four pay per veiws more build up as well as more pepole willing to buy (many only buy one or two ppvs form WWE a year and dont bother with all of them

they lose positional but they also gain money that would be spent evrey month as well

King of this world speaks the truth.
Genesis 2013 did 13,000, each ppv is around 30 bucks... once a month TNA does 39 0000$ without having to waste any money on transport or paying space. The only way they can change "losing millions" to "winning millions" is if the attendance numbers are solid and turn the expenses of going on the road into profit.

Lockdown starts at 15, you notice I never said they would make millions, he added that.


the whole idea is to cut down on ppvs so they dont have to spend that much money, where they making a profit? maybe, but it dont mean they where not lossing unneded money, i couild make a profit of 50$ it dont mean if i cut this back i wont make more



Theyw ill have higher build up, can hype more and charge more, and pay less per year for ppvs.

Don't you have to be making money off PPVs in the first place in order to lose any money?

$390,000 before expenses isn't good. At all.

I never said that you didn't think TNA is the best product on the planet. I quoted you because you're trying to downplay the move that Vince is making. It's obvious that he feels threatened by TNA even though their nowhere near close enough to the WWE to do serious damage right now. Why people have such a hard time admitting that is beyond me. Like I said, you don't spend this kind of money on moves like this unless you feel threatened.
