I think a riot would incite if Garrett won. How about with Brooke as his manager too.

I'm not bothered about a UK PPV.

However, I am more interested in the fact that TNA seem to have dropped Nottingham for its 2014 tour and have added Birmingham's National Indoor Arena to the tour instead. With a 12500 seating capacity (presumably less than that for a wrestling layout) it could rival Manchester and be on a par with London in terms of attendance. That makes me think they could be considering taping there too, which would mean 6 shows from the UK tour next year.

Six shows with big crowds! That's a pretty big chunk of the year for TNA to be looking big and like a major draw....

tna and wwe's ppv business almost entirely relys on buys from the New York time zone and how convinient it is for those there to watch the show

Britain is 5 hours ahead of them afterall

UFC 157 Rousey vs. Carmouche is the PPV for this month in Anaheim, California.

Best idea.
UFC have done 13 events from the UK...11 of those 13 were numbered events and I believe 3-4 were actual PPV's. Those PPV's never garnered more than 300k buys, and they have not ran a PPV in 5 years from the UK. They lost out on buyrates each time, yet Spike did good rating when they aired the numbered events on tape delay.

The World X Cup, International Incident and World Cup of Wrestling ONO's would all be good shows to "tape" in the UK IMO. If TNA is smart they would tape TV and 2 of the ONO's from the UK next year. Right now is not the time to test a UK PPV with them just moving to this Big 4 format.

There might not even be ONO's next year. The main reason the ONO's were produced was that their international TV deals required them to provide 12 PPVs a year. They are producing a total of 11 PPVs this year.

I think if they were able to build up a guy like Magnus to the World Title in a really strong program in the same way they built Aries (or the way he built himself), they could have a PPV in the UK (not one of the big four though, a separate fifth PPV) with Magnus being the main selling point of the show, and which would be available to the UK only on PPV. Magnus could be the poster boy for the new generation of British wrestling superstars.

Way too expensive to bring ONO talent out to the UK.

Thats because Notts and Manchester are so close to each other and the Notts shows didn't draw that well (been to them).

Birmingham, although a complete shithole (sorry Brummies), is the 2nd largest city in the country so will likely have bigger crowds than Notts.

Default Re: PPV in England

I don't see either WWE or TNA doing a PPV out of England anymore due to the time difference, and it not being live. Years ago it was fine but these days too many people would probably read the spoilers online and decide not to order. However, if they do a PPV in England they should do what UFC did years with their event and have it live but show it earlier in the day.

I think that Bound For Glory or next year's Genesis are the two best choices. I'd love to see them do Slammiversary in an outdoor venue.
