I nknow we are on a wrestling forum and my idea might actually sound stupid since you are all wrestling fans and that you are watching TNA mainly for the wrestling aspect. I just wanted to share an idea I had and you can say whatever you want about it i don't care at all.

In my opinion, wrestling-entertainment doesn't draw anymore. 12 years ago, Nitro and Monday Night Raw were combining something like 8.0 rating. Now, Raw is barely getting 3.5 and Impact simply never drew and gets the same 1.0 rating since they started four years ago on spike TV. And I don't think TNA will get any better ratings than what they have right now for one simple reason. WWE is the number one wrestling-entertainment company in the world and nobody will ever surpass them just like no MMA company can surpass UFC. So this being said, I think if Dixie ever wants to make real money with TNA, she definitely needs to reorientate the product.

So what could TNA possibly do? Lost, Bones, House, CSI...name them all...people are going crazy about all those TV series and I think TNA should become a Movie serie. Everybody knows wrestling is fake and isn't cool anymore. Let's create something new, let's innovate with all the charisma the TNA roster possess. I don't want to elaborate too much about my idea for one simple reason, i'm french and my english suck.

Lets give those wrestlers some roles and put them on the same Island...the Total Non-Stop Action Island. There would be a main story on every thursday where for example, the bad guys, AJ Styles and Beer Money would decide while drinking in a bar that they have enough of Kurt Angle being the leader of this Island.

Anyways...basically it would be a movie with the TNA wrestlers building some kind of storylines that would end in the ring at the end of the month.

You can invent what ever plot you want...Scott Hall wanting to get the hell out of is desintox but held by Doctor Stevie who would eventually get is ass kick...what ever stories you want that would go into an hour...stories that would end at the end of the month in a wrestling ring.

Now you can laugh at my idea.

ratings have dramatically change in 10 years, an 8.0-6.0 in 2000 is around the 4.0-3.0 margin.

viewers however, haven't dramatically changed.
it's change,d and they've lost viewers, but they haven't lost half their viewership or anything. that's not how ratings work.

ummm wow I don't know what to say about this, so I will just rant about any idea that trys to change wrestling to something more popular at the time. I don't see why so many people make threads like this even tho this one takes the cake, if you were to change wrestling into something it's not you will lose all the viewers they do have now. A lot people like wrestling because it is weird, mostly full of freaks and odd balls, that's a big part of its draw. Most wrestling fans don't go see the most popular movie out that weekend or buy the number one album, they like comic books, metal music or any other kind of crazy music you can think of, they watch fucked up shit on the internet, they watch hyper violent movies and there the crowd going to watch Jack Ass 3D when it comes out. One of the biggest problems in wrestling right now is I think most wrestling company's forget this.

A billion and one users have pointed out the fricking report Bryan Alvarez did a month ago! In 2000 RAW did 6.0 with 4.8 mil viewers, yet in 2010 RAW does 3.0 with 4.6

More people have cable now plus there's more shows on TV now. This will mean ratings will be lower.

Hasnt wrestling always been like a movie? But one of the things i like that a lot of people might not like.. that might help bring in more of a female demo is having relationship stories.. like the mickie james / cena storyline wwe just dropped .

If that's what you mean.

If nothing else TNA could be light porn tv.. we could have and picture this - Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, and Lacey rolling around in oil in the middle of the ring.
