— The TNA live event on July 20th in Danville, Illinois drew 700 fans. The following night’s show in Cape Girardeau, Missouri drew 550 fans.

— The TNA Slammiversary PPV did around 15,500 buys. This is down approximately 7% from last year’s event and considered a disappointment due to the fact that TNA cut their live PPV schedule from 12 down to 4.

    Every other site I saw had Slammiversary at 13,500 buys! Either way this is bad! TNA can't be making money on their PPVs with such low PPV buys! I hate to say it but, maybe TNA needs stop doing PPVs for a year or so and just have 3 hour Impact Specials to act as PPVs for a while!

    I doubt anyone cared to see Sting vs Bully despite the stipulations. And the main event is the match that's supposed to be the drawing factor. Sad to say, but it's true. I haven't cared to see Sting go for the title since his return in March 2011, but that was ONLY because he had returned to TNA. Mark out moment. I'm sure next year's buyrate will be better, since AJ will once again be the longest reigning champion at that point after BFG 😉

    Everyone freaks out over "unofficial" numbers.

    TNA just needs to keep producing quality, entertaining matches and the numbers will pick up.

      You tna fan boys have been saying that for over 10 years and buy rates and impacts ratings have not gotten any better. And I know all you fan boys are just going to say as long as the product gets better ratings don’t matter. what guess what ratings do matter whether you like it or not.

        well dipstick, care to answer why for a good month now all WWE programming has been declining in ratings and viewership and TNA programming has been increasing in ratings and viewership?

        You know you're pathetic when you suck at trolling.

        • ricky_No1 says:

          Increasing? Its just like he says. Same for over ten years. Stop denying the obvious.

          You know your pathetic when you cant go so resort to insult dipstick.

            If you want to use that trend, then for the past 6 years WWE's ratings and viewership has been decreasing. WWE fanboys don't know/realize how to keep everything in context.

          • ricky_No1 says:

            I fail to see how wwe ratings have anything to do with the fact tna ratings are the same as they have been for years and just for the record, i dont care for wwe so im not a bias fanboy

        • jflegler says:

          Okay…. Now I will actually agree with your use of the word "dipstick"…lol.

        • whatever says:

          Wwe’s viewership has not just gone down they gain and lose viewers every week dipstick. Just cause tna’s viewership went up for one week doesn’t mean they are increasing. And wasn’t it last month their numbers every week kept dropping. But still I was talking about ratings and buy rates not viewership but yet I just proved my point with both. Dipstick.

            Dude, do you pay attention to what you're talking about? Since WWE returned to USA after their stint with Spike (in which they garnered numbers in the 2's) they started out with high 6's. Ever since there has been a gradual decrease year after year after year after year. The only reason WWE is doing so well is because they are on the most watched network/channel in the U.S.

            Ever since TNA moved to Spike, they have done nothing but grow their numbers (weekly average over a year), excluding when they tried to the Monday Night Wars Part Duex. And even now they are gradually making that climb back to those numbers beforehand.

            Out of what would be considered the 3 big companies in the U.S., TNA is the only one that hasn't lost numbers. ROH and WWE have (at least ROH has the excuse of crappy airing times… yeah…. Sinclair helped them out a lot…. and you're extremely pathetic if you can't sense the sarcasm in that).

    I've always liked TNA since the start(i remember watching tna ppv of 2003 in the 2004 on an arab channel named dubai sport) i support TNA with merchandising; if they would have ppvs coverage here where i live i would buy it,now i can watch it thanks to Challenge the uk channel.
    btw i suggest TNA's got to be more different for the mainstream,with a lot of xdivision and strong style on live shows.This move would bring ratings and then buyrates.
