    tna, had under 2000 people in the arena for one of their biggest ppv, i dont know where your getting 75,000 from.

    At least 25 years much like how long it took WWE to get past the one million dollar buy rate.

    At this point we are lucky to get 75,000 to 100,000 ppv sells per month on avg.

    That is awesome to hear. It wasn’t the best WM of all-time but it was a good show. How long will it take for TNA to reach 1 million buys?
