    I was honestly expecting for rating to be either the same or a little higher cause i thought people would tune in to find out who the mystery guy was.

    Damn what a shame.

    Well a 1.05 to a 1.03 is not all that good of a rating and let me explain why. Tna had different videos of the August 1 warning. They had a lot of views on these videos. This then seemed to have many people interested in this weeks impact.. With that, I was expecting tna to pull in at least a 1.3 and up. But instead they pulled in a slightly lower rating. Now with these mma fighters in tna, they might pull a better rating next week

      they didnt even get the 250,000 views on the first video, so how do you figure they had a lot of views? Lets not forget that the vdeos, with decreasing views, were more than likely viewed by the same people, with the ones no longer interested, no longer clicking the youtubes….

    Aries vs AJ was an awesome match. Unfortunately Sabin vs Manik didn't feel anything like a world title match. Give the title back to Bully, Aries gets it off him and lets have some good matches. Bring back Shelley to reform the MCM's, put Beer Money back together and stack the cards with great tag team matches, singles and X-Division. With the addition of some MMA stars to bring in new fans, great matches is what you want to put on for them, first and foremost.

      Oh, and I forgot another eight Knockouts. Even if they are Indy jobbers, Seriously mix it up. You have well established girls there now, build something.

    There hasn’t been a good amount of tag matches recently. I know a lot of people like Sabin, but he’s not a draw (neither is Bully) the Aries/Styles match was incredible, but the ending was lame. I like what they are going with Roode. The Brooke/Bully/Hulk story line needs to END. It’s probably the worst thing going on right now. I change the channel or fast forward everytime they are on or talking about the “marriage” I’m also not a fan of Joseph Park, although EY is a nice funny touch and keeps me tuned in. TNA definitely needs to bring back Shelly and Jay Lethal too. Need some more Dutt & Petey Williams. I’m also curious if we’ll see Bischoff and/or Jarrett again. They seem to not push the right people at times or start a push and then end it. It seemed like they had something going with Morgan, but then dropped the angle and eventually let him go. I thought he would have been a good fit and much needed presence in A&8

    I thought the show was great. Minus Tito Ortiz. What idiot said Manik vs Aries sucked? Really? Facepalm

  7. Live4Gamez says:

    Even though the August1st Warning drew some internet interest, they should of broadcasted it first on television the week before, that would of got more viewers interested, but also once Tito appeared the night before on Bellator, people are figured out that he was probably behind the warning, and less people probably watched than would have had no hints been dropped at all. I know I lost interest once I read about Tito in Bellator.

    The rating didn't go up for one reason. I posted it days before, but i think the effect is allready there. Dixie overhyped too much allready and the people know it's gonna be disappointing so they don't watch no matter how hard TNA will hype things. Plus wrestling and MMA are 2 different things with each their own fans. Dixie now you are the "boy" who cried wolf, just like i said earlier. The only way to fix this is deliver and don't wait too long with that i should say. If you deliver maybe some people actually will believe your claims again.

    if tito atually done something it woulda been tolerable..but he just proceeded to stand there with his big head doing nothing useful. useless..

  10. Luis says:

    Watching Double A yesterday the way the crowd loved him reminded me how I was a few years back when he was tagging with Roderick Strong (hire him he is X-Division) good team

  11. Buseye says:

    It was a disappointment to find out that Tito Ortiz was the mystery guy,what a joke..
    How about instead of bringing in MMA fighters and WWE has-beens,how about TNA keep and use what they got and when they feel the need for new talent then they can look to OVW and the Indies
