Raising my question. Why is that? How can a 2nd rate company produce stars this popular? It's like every heel gets booed out of the building while every face gets mainevent level pops. This show made me feel like TNAs roster was full of Rocks, Hogans, Cenas and Austins. Gotta give HUGE props for the London fans for making the show as enjoyable, they made every match look like a Wrestlemania event, I don't recall when the last time was when fans were THIS vocal. Grats to you guys.

How big was the audience btw?

I think they have more adults watching as well. Which brings for proper reactions. Instead of being forced to like someone as a kid..



The mentality is entirely different with fans watching Impact wrestling. Also it is because some of them are main event players. No reason why guys like Aries/storm/Roode/ ect should not be getting huge pops. Aries is by far the most over.

Remember the pop for Aries at Slammiverary ?

I was at the London shows (7 Rows from ringside) and yes the entire atmosphere was electric from start to finish.

As this was my first ever TNA show I was just amazed by the amount of people there and their reaction's to every single wrestler, it was a pleasure to be apart of. Met Dixie briefly as well, lovely lady and was lucky enough to get a picture with her

Really hope TNA can keep this momentum up because this is what wrestling needs right now, alternatives and competition. It makes me laugh to see fans wanting or hoping that TNA, ROH etc will die. Why!? The more the merrier, keeps everyone on their toes and gives wrestlers places to go. More variety, the better IMO.

I really wish Impact the best this year, especially with their on the road shows now taking full force next month. Let's hope the crowds in the US will be just as loud as the UK

PS. The reception Joseph Park got was beyond incredible. Couldn't believe the reaction he got, and I'm a fan of his.

And second row ringside? Lucky!
The charisma of TNAs talent is proof that they can be major in any company. Not hating on TNA guys, just the TNA brand isn't even remotely as big as WWE.

I can't stop smiling when I think of Aries outpopping Rock. I feel so good thinking about this and I can't wipe the smile off my face. They didn't edit a damn thing, I am so fucking happy with this company right now. Not exaggerating, TNA has a very bright future, and they've only got up to go. Hogan was honest too when he talked about this being one of his best reactions ever. They wouldn't even stop cheering Aries when he got on the mic, it felt like an Obama speech.
LOL @ WWE for rejecting Aries cause he's short, even though he gives The Rocks pops a run for his life, and makes Cenas pops look like a joke. The most terrible decision WWE has ever done imo. Brb more charismatic than Cena, brb better mic skills and ring skills AND a more marketable face, still doesn't get a job cause he's only 5'8". If Aries was hired by WWE back then, he'd be feuding with The Rock right now. Can't believe how stupid a promotion has to be not to hire that guy. Should be multiple time WWE champion by now.

Also I think the fans want to show their loyalty because they don't feel cheated.

What's Lockdown's Main Event gonna be? Hardy Vs. Somebody. How long have we known this? Not too long.

What's WM 29's Main Event gonna be? Cena Vs. Rock II for the Championship with Cena winning. How long have we known this? Two and a half years.

I think a lot of WWE fans feel cheated by what's currently going on, and I don't really blame them. the whole WWE product just feels like the fans are puppets; it's not that way with TNA. I truly feel with a TNA show they are legitimately trying to entertain me, showcasing new characters and pushing different guys constantly, trying to make sure that no gimmick is stale, and the product is truly more entertaining. If you're live in that arena, and you know you're gonna see Austin Aries Vs. Bobby Roode in the main event, how the fuck won't you be excited and making noise? It's a lot easier to be a TNA fan than it is to be a WWE fan, and that's why the fans enjoy it more.

TNA is a big deal. This company is going places because they have created a loyal fanbase.

And to be fair, I think that if Aries went to WWE, he would probably be made to be a comedy character, but if he was booked like TNA booked him, I think he wouldn't get as good of pops as he got here. I just think it's that TNA's fan base doesn't ever feel betrayed or like they're having their intelligence insulted.

Nah, they have The Shield and Ryback now. Although I only like The Shield, their promo on last RAW was tremendous. Ryback feels fake though I agree, but you can't speak for all talent there, I thought Roman Reigns, Tyler Black (forgot his WWE name lol) did good promos too along Dean Ambrose. Sheamus, Ryback and Cena feel fake though, would rather watch AJ, Daniels and Kaz instead of them. WWE still has D Bryan though so it's even.

Daniel Bryan is treated like shit in the WWE. He looks like a freaking joke. The guy is so talented...he could be just another Austin Aries if he was in TNA.

Just because TNA isn't as big as WWE does not make is 'second rate'.

Thats just a prime example of the fucked up minds of the average IWC member, because TNA is only the second largest wrestling organisation in America it must be 'second rate''.

There is nothing wrong with being No.2.

I know you weren't hating; I was just saying. And indeed Aries is the total package, the look/build, the charisma, the great in-ring and mic skills...WWE seriously slept on him, but their loss is - yes, I will say - our gain, because who knows what he would have been in WWE? Him having to fight to get over while getting pushed down would not be something I would want to see. Vince's hard-on for big guys long since became as outdated as it is annoying. I couldn't care less about a big man with basic moves who can't work the mic on top of everything else. Aries is the kind of guy who I can see diversifying and always working to never be stale.

Yes indeed. Very true, and it's cool you got to meet Dixie. I would like to meet her myself. Glad you enjoyed the show, too.

You can say all you want.Right now they are on the verge of starting something big. Im not saying they are going to be big over night. They are exciting right now and right now have all the tools to take it far. People are excited about what they are spitting out. You can to give them credit. 10 years when the so called power house was been around 60 plus years.


March 14 is the day it all starts. They are bound for glory ha.

I really hope Dixie is paying these guys what they're worth. From what I've heard, Nigel didn't get paid too well when he was a part of TNA and they could've really used him better than they did.
