Default Hulk Hogan talks TNA's business strategy

Quote:
It’s either hold ’em or fold ’em. You’re either in the wrestling business or not. Is Dixie Carter really in the wrestling business, or this is just a hobby? You either make the move or you don’t.

You’re at that point now. It’s the same place we were with WCW – you either run with the big dogs or be a little dog and stay on the porch.

The destiny of this company is in her hands. It can stay TNA, a powerful little company, or she can make the decision to move on to greatness.

To limit to four major PPVs will give us a chance to make the wrestlers more important to give the fans a chance to choose who they love. I think it gives you a chance to sink your teeth into the characters and the company.

Well I 100% agree with the Hulkster. Going on the road had to happen at some point. I think now is a good time!

lolno.



if anything they shouldn't rush what they're doing. They aren't exactly going to blow up overnight regardless of what they do. They're doing all the right things this year though (PPVs, leaving the IZ). Now or never seems like poor wording.

I really wish Hogan would stop making these WCW and TNA comparisons.

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.

This was actually pretty well said. Their fan base is large enough to take a big step and try to make it grow (Seriously doubt an increase if they continued the way they were, its been the same for years) so this is an appropriate time to take a chance

Besides, names like Hardy, Angle and Hogan won't be around in 5 years most likely so why wait? They can bring extra exposure, leading to those new to TNA possibly getting invested in the other guys, like Roode, Aries, Storm etc

Yeah, reducing the PPV amount, going live as often as possible and going on the road are all things fans have wanted, so maybe they'll start to show some increase in the ratings after they leave the IZ (as I could see some fans that stopped watching giving it a second chance now that they'll have a bigger arena feel with the show, and I could see others who haven't ever seen it giving it a chance for the first time for similar reasons)....
