and have more rules then a 10,000 seat arena. The smaller venues have so many rules and probably don't even have the facilities to run LIVE television.
I find that hard to believe
As for the House Show circuit it's usually 700+ which isn't that bad but could be better. .
maybe if they were more for an indy model then you night have a point, but with being capable of higher attendances would give them reason to remove the lesser show from the schedule entirely
schedule has always been one of pro wrestling's biggest problems
tna have been in a position for years to solve a ton of this subcultures' problems
speaking of indy do you have any idea how many competent promotions would kill for a 33 mil a year trust fund
Nobody really wants to see guys like AJ, Daniels, Joe except for the smarks and hardcore TNA fans. That's why House Shows are down, .
1. THEIR VERY FIRST HOUSE SHOW GOT 3000 ATTENDEES!
2. you clearly haven't been watching tna that long
3. if that's the case then
consider yourself lucky
, if they could get Sting to appear and talk to the audience and maybe one more active "star" wrestler they'd do over a thousand each time. House Shows are 100% about seeing your favourites and seeing the stars. TNA doesn't offer that.
trust me sting is no big draw, he would bring a few more to the yard but not enough for the show to look like a success, otherwise we wouldn't even be having this conversation
What does international touring have to do with anything? They tour Europe and the United States probably also Canada. My point simply was they're gaining popularity throughout the world I never said they had enough popularity to tour those countries. .
well thank you at least for clarifying, details matter
Regardless, to use my own example in 2005 nobody here in Australia knew anything of TNA except the hardcore wrestling fans. These days it rates almost as well as WWE does. Whether you like it or not this means TNA has grown.
that's old news, its been like that FOR F**ING YEARS NOW!
and yet not grown enough to sign Goldberg, Jericho or Ross
In those days all the lesser PPV's were at Universal but regardless when they started going on the road with all their home grown talent and big WWE signings such as Booker T, Christian, Kevin Nash, Kurt Angle, Scott Steiner etc they were struggling to get 3000 people into Pay Per Views. Hell, Bound For Glory 2009 drew only 2300 fans. TNA can draw that occasionally with Impact today. .
because they certainly aren't struggling now
also it makes it okay because of BFG? that WM mentality is so f***ing annoying
When is the last time AAA, CMLL and NJPW drew 2000 in the United States? Do you think TNA would really have any trouble drawing massive numbers in Japan? It's 2 completely different markets. TNA would be incredibly successful in Japan and also Mexico.
why would they even want to set foot in such an overcrowded market
im not discounting japan but rumour has it they did go to mexico once, had sting on the show, and only drew 200 people
