    No one in their right mind would have expected much more on the 4th of July.

    Damn that's low, damn why did they resign with spike. Bring back don west and get rid of tazz, boxing is now my 2nd best sport after football now. Wrestling used to be my first , please Dixie sort it out.

    • soyfenomenal says:

      Your comment is senseless. TNA puts out a great product, but because it's on Spike and gets low ratings, it's not your favorite? piss off, bandwagon hopper.


    I enjoy IMPACT! and I can’t wait for the Destination X show

    Stop using Spike TV as an excuse, WWE drew a 3 and 4 rating on spike so ppl know about spike tv, the issue is TNA is promoting their product, that isn’t spikes job to promote TNA just like it isn’t USA’s job to promote wwe

    • JoshuaTNA says:

      WWE has been around for Six times the years of TNA. Any network WWE goes on they'll be alright. TNA is still a young company and they have outgrown their network as they are already Spikes highest rated show. and there ratings are terrible. They need to move to network like USA were most of the highly promoted shows score 2.0's. That would put them in front of new eyeballs with the right promotion from a new network. And yes it the networks job to promote their shows, Have you never watched a network and see a promo for a new TV show hitting the network ?

      • Jon says:

        LOL at the notion that a network like USA … or anything higher up the food chain than Spike would even have a conversation with TNA. This has been discussed to death here, most of the networks with bigger audiences with Spike wouldn't even talk to Vince at this point, much less TNA.

        Who do you think would add pro wrestling today, CNN? Oh, wait … it has fewer viewers in prime than Spike.

        Last week's primetime numbers had SPK at #23 … look at who is ahead of them & find one that's even a remotely realistic target …

        That's it. There's nowhere "better" to go.

        • JoshuaTNA says:

          Umm did you forget UFC was on Spike drawing lower ratings then TNA. and they got a Promotion deal with FOX and their now a household name. UFC is a perfect example of what good promotion from a bigger network can do.

          • Jon says:

            No, I haven't forgotten. However the UFC is a growing entity. Pro wrestling is a flattened shell of its former self.

          • OldManEaston says:

            TNA and UFC is apples and oranges. Even before Spike tv the UFC was doing great ppvs buys, and getting good attendance. The Audience was already there for UFC, it just didn't translate over to ratings for Spike because they weren't doing anything of note. TUF isn't a ratings giant even since the move to F/X, and Spike and UFC were doing little else but a few glorified specials on Spike. It is certainly the not type of audience that UFC gets for UFC on FOX. MMA is just not really an episodic draw like wrestling has been and can be in the case of WWE.

            Spike is the least of TNA's problems, there is potential for much better ratings on that channel than what they get. The problem is that TNA get's tolerable ratings but it doesn't translate into ppv buys and attendance. Until TNA solves that issue you just aren't going to see the ratings increase considerably, because it means TNA is not an attractive product. It is something that a few people will watch, but they are not that heavily invested in it. There is no momentum.

      I think Dixie is scared of stepping on McMahons toes.She may have good reason to be. That is where she should be advertising. wherever the hell they are.

    • shutupplz says:

      Wrestling in general was scoring way higher ratings back then your comparing apples to oranges bud!

  5. whatsup121 says:

    Of course it’s gong to be low it’s the

    Independence Day in the US what do

    You expect the hightest ratings night


  6. ldavidlP says:

    everything about the main event mafia sucks

  7. DJBIGCG says:

    It was the 4th of July and I understand that. But these tna marks are going to have to quit coming up with these excuses every week for tna getting low ratings

    • andy3323 says:

      Well the recent 'excuses', as you call them, have the numbers to back them up.

      There were low ratings during the NBA playoffs, then the next to last week of the playoffs there was not a Thursday night game and the ratings went up significantly. Then the NBA finals were the following Thursday and they went back down to where they were during the rest of the games. I honestly don't recall the rating between the title game and the 4th, but I know it once again dropped on the 4th, as expected.

      There is a difference between excuses and true legit reasons.

  8. lee4tammy says:

    it was a good episode and the x division main event was awesome but its the fourth of july so yeah its going to be low and its funny how every 3 weeks tna hits a high rating followed by 2 weeks of low

    on the topic of spike , im english so idk what spike is like but from what i can gather its a small channle but spike back tna all the way to the moon and tna is spikes most watched show

    i dont think if tna jumped to a more exposed channle would help tna as i dont think they would be as well liked or backed as spike do


    To those of you who watch both TNA and WWE the Wyatt Family Debut….. that is what TNA needs to do. Before you have a problem with that sentiment watch it and tell me it didn't kick arss. Young, talented, hyped and a clear storyline for them. Not revealing the identity of Suicide, changing his name, them having him lose. Not having AA cut an amazing promo about option C then lose. It is a bit of a shame that so many wrestlers seem not to connect with their audience. Very few elicit a reaction, which if they could, would mean people would talk about it more. You need people saying 'hey that promo …… did was amazing, he then had a kick arss match with…. you have to tune in next week!' The thing is. TNA CAN do this, just a little perplexing as to why they really don't seem to,

  10. DJBIGCG says:

    I agree, the Wyatt family had a great debut and tna should take notes on building a debut up, then delivering

  11. shutupplz says:

    How about all you TNA haters just stop watching, reading and stop anything and everything TNA! Watch WWE be happy and move on. Low rating on the 4th of July expected bottom line so let the nasty comments come my way call me a TNA fanboy or whatever you want thats also expected. Much love

    Advertisement & brand recognition is tna's biggest problems.
