The only time this changed in history was when Bischoff was given unlimited funds and started luring dumbasses over in the mid 90's.

Fact: Retards will watch shit mainstream over quality minor league.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

TNA is finally getting people on seats, why? Because fans now trust the product and aren't afraid of russo fuckery anymore. But still, damage has been done... the lolTNA memes continue because of the stupid crap they did in the past which will haunt them forever.
Let's ignore the record attendances and increase in ppv buys like slammiversary (around 100% by the way).
Russo is a fucking hero because in the year he got removed and most of the shit he wrote was getting rejected, TNA got a overall rating of 1.17! Great fucking great.
Well, which fans - obviously Internet wrestling fans!!! Because the casual are moving away from TNA day after day. And your silly excuses will not alter the fact. Look at the rating they are falling and falling and falling!!! And again about the attendance and PPV buys, well when you do just 4 ppvs in a year, you simply make it special, but still LockDown PPV buys were similar to the last year, even though they had record attendance. That proves plenty of viewers didnt ordered for the PPV, which they did last year. And talking about attendance on each shows, they are doing road for the first time in the history of the company surely TNA fans will love that, and still TNA is a private company so you cant say they didnt gave away free tickets like wcw did, when you have 2 big wcw men out there in your company calling all things.

I don't know if my opinions reflect others opinions, but for one thing I don't trust TNA because I had a lot of love for the brand many years ago and they just do that love and crushed it and each time I tried to get back into the product it was just worse so eventually I just gave up on them completely. With WWE I already know it sucks, but there are characters I care about in WWE and I expect them to get decently booked, so I specifically watch those segments with those guys. I don't have that kind of trust for TNA in how they treat my favorites on their roster because they have abused that trust too many times with guys I loved and felt would be wrestling's current big stars.

Another thing is I realized there is a lot more wrestling out there than WWE or TNA and it is readily available so I don't really care about the two big American promotions anymore.

Yes, hordes of internet fans filling arenas everywhere. Who needs casuals when these people with "internet connections" give you record breaking attendances... you know paying money to watch a product.
Sure brah, it's all a conspiracy against vince russo. Poor guy.

Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Is it not possible that people attending the show could possibly have have bought the PPV....

TNA has to cross lines again. The product is too tame right now.

Otherwise it's good.

Impact Wrestling - Cross the line. They should bring that slogan back ha. Put it under the Impact wrestling banner. It was a fun time back then. Regardless of the insanity it was.

The fact is, no one knows who the next star is going to be. For all we know, it could be Rockstar Spud. Shit example, but it's possible.

I get what you are saying there but, there are usually some elements that show what a superstar in wrestling is and they are look, size, and physique and if you look at TNA's younger guys none seem to fit that profile of The Rock etc..........A prototype for this type of guy is Roman Reigns and Randy Orton TNA doesn't have one of those.

Rock star spud i think could be pretty dam good. Just based off his character we have seen all ready. The guy is just getting started. I think he will prove just like Aries,Size doesn't matter. If it does then you should be ashamed.
