Even though the ratings aint that high at the moment, i think its an achivement in itself to maintain a loyal fanbase of a million viewers every thursday. Where as the competiton has been losing ratings tna has mangaged to maintain or slightly grow there's.

The weight limit in pro wrestling should be eliminated as it doesn't matter. Steiner/Morgan did a weigh in a one point which didn't make sense. For two reasons:

1. It occurred DAYS before the showdown and two...the WHC doesn't have a weight limit.

2. So what is Morgan tips the scales at 285? He doesn't get a purse cut or given an hour to lose that weight, etc.
Wrestling doesn't work that way, being the WHC is being the best.
It's has nothing to do with the weight... it's the prestige of the title.

[quote=Thomas Batista;16040826]There are ways they can do wrestling that isn't like WWE.

1. No on-air authority figure[/QUOTE}

Because the WWE invented that right? WCW never did that with the likes of Nick Bockwinkel JJ Dillion or Eric Bischoff and Ring of Honour have done that with both Nigel McGuinness and Steven Haworth so they must be a rip of of the WWE too right.

2. Create a KO Division that is LEAGUES better then the Divas Division. It should not even be comparable to WWE Divas skills.

They are well above anything the WWE is doing with the women WWE hardly even has storylines with the Divas anymore.

3. The company SHOULD NOT revolve around the WHC. Do like what UFC and boxing does, showcase different titles during the months, etc. The mainevent of a PPV might be for the tag team titles, the main event for Slammiversary might be for the X title, etc. (this is something WWE doesn't do).

Wrestling has always been focused around the World title going all the way back to the NWA, SMW, AWA etc. The difference is UFC and Boxing are real.

4. Get out of the 90's thinking that having ' big names' will draw in fans. Lockdown 2010 had all 3 original members of the NWO, Jeff Hardy, Team 3D, Flair, Angle, and RVD and they STILL didn't sell out the building.

Vince owns wrestling. It's important for TNA to have recognizable stars which unfortunately does mean WWE stars. If the alternative of TNA is that they have there original athletic guys that are unexposed then TNA is just going to lose out unfortunately that's just the way it is. When a casual fan turns TNA on they don't know who 90% of the wrestlers are that's what these WWE guys bring to the table. You need a mix of WWE stars and TNA stars in order to bring eyeballs to the product in my opinion. I started watching TNA in 2010 when Hogan came in. That however that was in 2010 it's 2013 now there is now a nice balance of WWE guys and TNA guys.



My point is it's wrestling WWE did not invent wrestling.

TNA's ratings will improve post Wrestlmania season as some of the casual/wrestling fans cant follow two wrestling products at the same time....

That's not true, impact's ratings usually go up when RAW's ratings go up. And TNA might get full houses during the mania week.

In 2012 it did 1.25 million viewers. As shit as internet fans believe TNA was in 2010-2011, it was their highest rating years.
Not true. 08/09 drew higher ratings than 10/11.

WWE has a built in audience that probably got into it at a young age and are loyal to that as the only form of wrestling they enjoy. TNA and any other wrestling company that wants to match WWE will have to contend with that.

As of right now, other explanations for TNA's ratings come out of where they were in the past. Remember what the show was like in 2010 & 2011 when Hogan & Bischoff came in? For the most part, it was fucking terrible and did a lot to turn off fans & potential viewers. Since then, yes, they have gotten much better, but they still have to wash off the stink of 2010 & 2011, and that is hard to do.

Another thing to keep in mind is the competition they have on Thursday nights. The last few weeks they've gone up against March Madness,
which is stiff competition for anybody, and there are also shows like Big Bang Theory (the number one rated comedy on TV) that are right in their time slot. And then consider the network they are on. SpikeTV's programming isn't exactly high caliber stuff. I remember when they were on Saturday nights in 2005 and there this horrible fat rednecks show that I believe was their lead in (might have followed them, I don't remember). They don't really have much surrounding them to get a rub from so they pretty much have to maintain an audience on there own, which again, is tough.
Came to post this.

In January Impact Wrestling drew around 1.6 million viewers (just before the Rock came back), but there has been secular decline in the viewership recently, even though they are putting up great shows....
Plus this week RAW did better on ratings compared to last week....

I have read in lot of forums, where people have left watching a product when they had to chose between the two, I stopped watching RAW post Hell In A Cell, now I only read the dirtsheets for WWE. So there would be too many fans (especially casual), who chose between WWE/TNA

Then again, I maybe wrong as I have started watching Impact Wrestling only after the AnE story started

The new wrestling they get on gutcheck dont look like they cold ever be big name stars. They need more big name stars instead of using the same stars every week.

Maybe big stars that come for a while and then leave. No one has a gimmick except aces and eights.
