These questions have actually been addressed before, but for the last question, I think it would be difficult for the wrestlers to uproot and move to England, which they would have to do in order to "permanently tape" there. It was easier for them to get home when they were based in Florida, and some even just settled there or in that area of the country. It would not be economically feasible, I would imagine, for them to move the whole operation there, especially when you take into account that they'll want to be with their families.

As to the first question, they do have huge crowds like that in America. For WWE. Once TNA gets brand recognition they'll have huge crowds too. Plus, you have to take into consideration that they're not often there in the UK, and the fact that they have a fairly good presence there, television-wise; there are more shows in the UK. There are other reasons as well.

Agreed; they have everything they need to be big stars except visibility on a larger scale. Here's to hoping they get that.

Talking about Nigel, even he didn't come in as hot as Austin Aries did.

Just saw the crowd in that video The Tony posted, looks like they're at an actual arena instead of a sound stage at an amusement park.

TNA always does a great job with its live crowds. They really know how to get them up and excited. And the performers too are not bounded by some script so they can go out there and try and get a real reaction from the crowd. I think TNA will be multiple times better in front of larger crowds. It's not just the visual of a larger crowd as a television viewer, it's that the wrestlers will perform better in front of a larger, livelier crowd (I honestly believe Roode became much better on the mic since he got to perform in front of the Wembley Arena crowd last year. I could see the same happening to a lot of the other talents, especially the midcarders.) and the reactions will obviously be better than the Impact Zone where even good angles seemed boring because of lackluster reactions. Also going to different cities every two weeks gives some good material in itself for the performers. Imagine Daniels and Kaz making a crack about the Chicago Bulls, or Austin Aries saying how much the Atlanta Hawks suck. WWE seems to be taking their large crowds for granted these days. TNA on the other hand are begging for the opportunity to perform in front of bigger crowds so they'll do all they can to get the crowd as involved into the show as possible.

They're still need to go a long long way to get America talking and watching their product. As of now, they need to focus on the US (particularly East Coast) and the UK, that's it. Also, at some point, they need to revitalize the X-Division again (position it the same level as the World Title picture) since it's the FOUNDATION of the business.

for anyone whos saying that WWE treats their fans like puppets. GET THE FUCK OUT! If TNA was in WWE place then you would have seen this kind of bullshit from their part too. If you want to be a the top then you got to do what WWE has done and make happy millions and millions of fans around the world and not just 200 rednecks that watch TNA. If TNA was in WWE place then Aries and other midget fellas would have been jobbers and you would have seen Jessie Godderz, Luke Gallows, Mike Knox, etc. as TNA Champion.

Ummm, no. Hogan, Warrior and Savage were larger than life. Sting, Luger, nWo, Goldberg, DDP... Hart, HBK, Yokozuna and Diesel too. The Rock, Austin, Triple H, Angle, Lesnar, Hardy, Cena.

Hell, wrestling in it's core is "larger than life", because wrestlers do things that us mortals cannot do.

I agree but TNA can make a difference in changing the perspective of what pro wrestling is all about. You do not simply assume that the "big untalented men main eventing" philosophy is the only strategy for a company to breakthrough mainstream. TNA's slogan "Where Wrestling Matters" is really effective in drawing hardcore wrestling fans, so far. We just have to patiently wait and support for TNA to become a legit competition. It's possible.
