    WCW before Nitro was born was in US for three years under contract and then left, TNA will do the same come May 2013.

    Nitro in 1996 had a contract to do 5 shows in US. They did them and moved on

  • Jason

    Yes TNA chose to work out of the Impact zone and even signed a thing called a contract in 2008 to renew a spot with US theme parks for 5 more years. TNA just can’t leave because they feel like it or want to. Even Bischoff who is the EP for all of TNA has said 2013 can’t come fast enough and at the moment the best they can do for 2012 is ten shows outside of the Impact zone do to legal issues.

    Dude, TNA CHOSE to work out of the “Impact Zone” to cut costs of touring. They also chose to do it so, like with everything else they’ve done, they could try and be WCW 2.0. Or don’t you remember that Monday Nitro also started out from Universal Studios in FL?

    NCIS and the Big Bang reruns beat WWE Raw every week in the same demo. It has nothing to do with how bad TNA or WWE is but how poorly the pro wrestling business is as a whole right now. Business is down across the board for anything pro wrestling. MMA is killing both pro wrestling and boxing and anything else that get’s in it’s way. In 5 years pro wrestling may be hot again but right now it is not. That is the reality for both WWE and TNA.

    Jason here’s what I do understand about the ratings system after doing a little research. Reruns of Big Bang Theory and NCIS did over double the rating of Impact in the crucial male 18-49 demographic. That is a demo pro wrestling should dominate. F’n reruns! TNA did the same numbers as Braxton Family Values. I don’t even know what that is

  • MJ

    I’ve watched Spike Tv and its no wonder why TNA is the most highest rated show on there network. None of the shows on there besides TNA are watchable.

    I dont want TNA to do another monday night wars ever again because as soon as they went to monday nights ever knew that they would flop. TNA needs to be different from wwe and they are doing just that.

    WWE’s divas divison is shit while TNA has the best women’s divison there while ROH likes to have a whole bunch of guys in there product for some reason.

    TNA’s Tag team divsion might only have 2 tag teams at the moment but atleast TNA has plans for them they just dont put the tag team champions in random matches and they aren’t in feuds with anyone they just have matches.

    TNA really needs to make the TV title a midcard title and get it off Robbie E then that would be awesome.

    What WWE isn’t doing right TNA should be making sure they stand out because them going head to head did nothing for TNA if it did do anything for them it was not to go head to head with them its all about being different from what wwe is doing.

    I went to a TNA show a few weeks ago. My friends and I kept chanting “Boring.”

  • Jason

    And once again I get a thumbs down for what? All I did was post the truth… lol

  • Jason

    1.3 this week, and you must go by the viewership not the TV rating. I swear most people on this site don’t seem to have a clue on how the rating system works. Viewership and a TV rating are not the same. lol

  • b c Mitchell

    Really? A 1.1 beats tons of other shows. Tons.

  • Jason

    Nick, TNA is watched by more then 2 million people a week on avg. Many networks would pick up TNA and spike loves TNA as it is by far the highest rated show that they have and beats tons of other shows that come on at the same time via other networks.

    I would also like to point out that the ratings for this weke went up against stiff programing. The bischoff segment was also in the top spot via the highest rated segment of the show. Not that the segment mattered much like last week as it only lasted about 3 mins.

    Q4: Impact scored its highest rating of the hour with a 1.34 rating for videos, Hogan and Bischoff backstage segment and the first-half of the Knockouts match between Gail and ODB. There was one commercial, which helped boost the Q4 rating, when TNA typically has two commercials in Q4. It was the highest-rated Q4 segment since November. (up 10.3% vs. 2011-Q4 average)

  • Nicholas

    Yeah what network is going to pick Tna up. Heck how bad is it when even Spike is getting tired of Tna crap. I mean say what you will about Wwe but if they left USA Network they would have no problem finding a home. Fox would be the first one in line next to Spike the network that wants no part of Tna anymore.

  • Jason

    Good points Mr. E, but dropping Bischoff would hurt TNA more then it would help it at this point. Fans really have no idea how much he does for TNA as a whole.

    PS: What I said above got a thumbs down but why? lol

  • Mr. E

    That’s only a small part of it. I go to wrestling shows I won’t watch. There is three problems with TNA. 1) WWE is bigger, and TNA is trying to compete with them. Baby steps. 2) Wrestling isn’t as cool as it was 15 years ago. 3) TNA needs to advertise better. Drop some of the needless talents. Flair, Bischoof, or Hogan, not all 3. they cost to much. Spend money to advertise.

  • venom

    ^Yea, okay.^ I hope Roode gets the win here.

  • Jason

    Nice looking card so far, but really imo May 2013 can’t come fast enough via so that TNA can leave the Impact Zone. Being forced to do a certain number of shows per year in that one venue really cheapens the product imo. I think 2014 will be when the real war starts between WWE and TNA.

  • Mr. E

    Maybe Roode will shoot up before the main event.

    I’m guessing that most of the rest of us don’t really pay attention to another guy’s ass.
