Default Petition for TNA Stars to appear on more television shows.

Hello fellow IMPACT Wrestling Fans.

If there's one thing I love to see, it's IMPACT making money so they can continue to broadcast good matches on a weekly basis.

However TNA has been doing poorly in ratings for years now, scoring only in the .8-1.1 area. I don't think that's fair, more people need to see this product.

My idea is that TNA doesn't have a lot of star power in their wrestlers since many of them are now pure TNA Bred, rather than ripped from WWE. So if we give the TV World a chance to see them, they'll get interested and tune in, causing their ratings to rise. Making them look more popular in the TV world, getting more sponsors, and then getting more money to put on even bigger shows. (But Unlike WCW, we're doing this the opposite way. Instead of having the TV talents come to IMPACT. we're bringing IMPACT to the TV Icons)

So I want to start a petition to give to TNA Marketing, on getting TNA Stars on bigger name TV Shows. So they'll receive more ratings. If we get a lot of names, maybe the Hulkster will actually listen to the fans and use his talents to publicize the show, rather than himself.

So since getting people on shows is costly, I'm starting from the Ground Up. With #99 on the Top 100 Watched TV Shows.

Dr. Oz!

So this could be made easier if we chose a specific wrestler to guest on the show. So here are my top five in no particular order. (Feel free to make your own suggestions)

Dr. Oz is a show about health and staying healthy, and understanding how the body works so here are my top picks.

1. Joesph Park: Right Now, Joesph is an ideal candidate, he looks incredibly fat and is in the BFG Series. So maybe on a slow day, Dr. Oz can help counsel Park on how to become healthier and stronger like his "Brother" Abyss. It'd be an ideal story to tell and a clear subtle way of selling IMPACT to Dr. Oz viewers.

2. Crimson: While not the ideal candidate as he's not having a huge push. Crimson does know a lot about Physical Health, and has worked in the army. So perhaps on the show, he can tell people the best way to train your body, the proper foods to eat, and how to treat wounds you would get in the army.

3. Jay Bradley: Like Joesph, he's in the BFG Series. However, unlike Joesph, he has a major health problem few people know about. Jay actually has an Overactive Thyroid, this problem actually has caused him to fall asleep during training and even during matches at some points. You won't see it as Jay has learned to overcome it, but he could use what he's learned to sell his character, and the BFG Series.

4. Kurt Angle: Olympic Gold Medalist, In a big storyline. Everyone loves this guy. On the show he can explain his trials of being an actual wrestler, and why he wants Wrestling in the 2020 Olympics.

5. Zema Ion: Ok, he's not in a storyline. However, Zema NEEDS more money from TNA and their fans in order to pay for his upcoming surgeries. I love him, I've been pulling for him since he debuted. I don't think ANYONE wants to see Zema's career stop short like this. He's a great talent, and he needs help. The world has should know. Zema should be on the Dr. Oz show, explain his pains, and get a new fundraiser started for his surgery.

So wants to sign? (Either say your name, or just say Anonymous and I'll put down "Anonymous User who goes by "Your Username".)

They have Eric Young who's on a major channel, but they have barely mentioned him on tv.

they should just get rid of their business development manager.

Yes, this is something they need to do.

But just in terms of your Dr Oz suggestion, Aries stands out as an obvious one for me. He undoubtedly has a lot to say about the vegetarian lifestyle and how it is possible to build muscle without meat. Also how it is possible to eat in a vegetarian manner when you are living out of a suitcase, plus suggestions for decent, tasty veggie dishes. There's a lot of mileage in that, if he were interested, not just in terms of TV appearances, but cook books, articles in magazines etc.

Daniels is an obvious choice for anything comic-related, but I'm not sure of any shows that address comics despite their importance in popular culture. ;(

New show pitch - "Man vs Beer".

Like "Man vs Food" but instead has James Storm touring the world sampling strange and exotic beers.

Oh, and "Monkey Tennis." With Chris Eubank.





But seriously, I think "Man vs Beer" would be a damn interesting show.

TNA has made bigger attempts at having someone than Hulk Hogan advertise the product, but it hasn't done much.

When I first thought this idea up, I thought they should have started with Chris Sabin on the Bachelorette. He fits the mood of the contestants, and could sell the product a lot during his private moments in interviews and during private moments with the bride to be that season.

But a problem with sending someone to big name Reality TV Shows like Survivor or Amazing Race, is that it takes a lot of time out of their calendar to disappear from Impact Wrestling. So for instance, it'd be hard to put Bad Influence into a show because they're involved in huge storylines. (That being said, I would watch more Amazing Race if Bad Influence were a team on that show.)

On the idea of Aries, I forgot about his high vegetarian background. He could also be taken out for a one-off Impact Advertisement. Aries is probably the biggest card TNA has up its sleeve, but he's only pulling in the Internet Fans because we know him really well. So this would be an ideal time to have Aries pop up more.

Ok, this petition can now be focused on having Aries appear.

Aries would be a great fit as you outlined. He's previously spoken about the benefits of the diet and how he handles it, and he would be absolutely perfect to expose on national television in this regard.

EP Daily is still being produced and aired in Canada, and while not on a US Network, it is broadcast on multiple individual channels in major markets. There's also Kevin Smith's Comic Book Men on AMC.

If you're going to do this you have to consider the show's demographic and how having a wrestler appear would benefit them.

I find it incredible that TNA doesn't promote itself better with guys as Hogan and Hardy in the company. Hardy was the top face of the WWE less than four years ago, he was even bigger than Cena. If I had a wrestling company and Jeff Hardy was in it, I'd be promoting the shit out of him. And Hogan...well, he is HULK HOGAN, he will always be one of the biggest names in pro wrestling. TNA needs to fire its business development manager as soon as possible and hire someone with much more experience and knowledge in the job.
