The avarage rating back in 2006 was 0.89, the avarage rating of TNA in 2010 was 1.07, which was worse than their rating in 2009 - their best year - 1.14, but even if we take only 2010 and compare it with 2006 it's over 20% up in the ratings , probably even more in terms of viewrship, I don't know how people keep these insane posts about how TNA is going backwards every year, comapred to 2006. Not to mention TNA's merchandise sells which seemed to be well up last year compared to 2009 and especially compared to 2006 where TNA probably didn't even have any merchandise to sell. May be you were exprecting their ratings to double, I don't know...if Bischoff and Hogan are losing money for TNA they will be released, Dixie is smarter than the internet jerks here who think they could do a better job at running a company , she can do the maths! But whether Hogan and Bischoff are making more money for TNA or are losing them money is known only by TNA management and not a single internet smark is part of that management I think, so stop trying to act like you know TNA are losing money because of Hogan and Bischoff.Well on the basis that Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff have now been in TNA for over a full year now and ratings are more or less the same as they were back in 2006 despite much more money being spent i would say no. The biggest storyline of last year in "They" and the whole 10.10.10 thing which should have carried a lot of momentum coming into 2011 was a major fail and due to TNA pushing through a storyline that was meant to see the return of The Main Event Mafia but was ruined by TNA failing to sign Sting, Booker T and Kevin Nash thus meaning a major rewrite which after seeing the spoilers is another fail which says to me that 2011 will be an even worse year than 2010 was.
In my opinion every year since 2006 has been seen TNA go backwards apart from parts of 2008 leading into Bound For Glory and then parts of 2009 when the storyline between The Main Event Mafia and The Frontline was good and after all the hype and build up to what should have been TNA's biggest year in 2011 they have again gone backwards. The only way that TNA can move forward in my opinion is for Dixie Carter to remove herself from all aspects of the company on the wrestling side and concentrate on promoting the company and building it up whilst also getting rid of Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo because they are destroying TNA with their booking and also draining the company due to their HUGE salaries.
We as fans can only tell whether we like what we see on the show or not, I like what I see on Impact from the beginning of 2011 - crazy Flair promos, Anderson and Hardy in a good feud, Angle is back, a few good matches but TNA needs to catch up with that a little bit, so ...I think it should be a good year for TNA, yeah!
