Re: Hulk Hogan talks TNA's business strategy

Are they currently doing a good job of selling tickets, or are they giving them basically giving them away like they were in the past to somewhat fill the seats?

Re: Hulk Hogan talks TNA's business strategy

Nothing new here, just hype.



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.

And politics. Hogan wants to be the man who built a third company. Always with someone elses money, of course.

WWE didn't get to be a World power by staying in an amusement park, this maybe what wrestling needs if we want another wrestling boom.

Do you actually think they can do that? Surely becoming slowly more established and taking it step by step so they dont go in over their head is what they need to do. Personally I think that shouldn't be the mindset they have since it's unlikely to happen and they should just focus on their own product since iirc they've been doing alright financially doing what they do.

Also, I don't see anything wrong with TNA staying as a little powerful company. They have a loyal fanbase and continue to put out some solid shows so it's really nothing wrong with staying as a little powerful company that has a loyal fanbase that enjoy's their product.
Like Shepard said, they shouldn't rush what they are doing just to compete with the "big dogs". Hogan should understand by now that greatness doesn't happen overnight, especially during the TNA vs Raw Monday Night Wars fiasco back in 2010.
Somebody scared?

Re: Hulk Hogan talks TNA's business strategy

Why on earth are people having a pop at Hogan here when he is talking complete sense?

TNA at some point have to take a gamble, you dont grow without taking risks. Why should they be happy just to stay where they are?

Just because WWE exist doesnt mean TNA cant get bigger, maybe never WWE size, but they can certainly be bigger than they currently are.

Re: Hulk Hogan talks TNA's business strategy

they will never gonna compete with WWE and i mean NEVER. The machine, the monster known as WWE are too big for someone to compete with them ever again in the wrestling business. Wrestling = WWE for many many people. WWE from a business standpoint is 10, 100, 1000 times bigger than they were in 2000.

I dont care what business aspect your talking about. Business in wrestling is asses in the seats. Asses in the seats have dropped for wwe since 2000. They are in smaller arenas. People are delusional just because its the biggest companie.Doesnt mean it cant fall behind. They are falling right now. They are keep the level they are by bringing back guys like the rock and other last generation stars.

Like i said Its about asses in the seats. Impact wrestling is smaller but it will come. WWE is not the machine it was in 2000. You can have all the business and power behind the scenes. Its not going to last if you dont have Wrestlers that draw the brand.People are getting bored of whats happening on the roster.

Considering the size of this so called company. The ratings are not even that drastically higher then impact wrestling. They get boosts when say rock comes back.

Just if you do comparison to what they did back then.
