    With tna always getting .9 and sometimes 1.0 ratings, it seems like the only people who watch tna are the same people. I'm not sure if it's possible, but if cm punk becomes a free agent, give him whatever amount he wants (or at least you can) and have him show up. That 0.9 rating would greatly raise

      For one or two shows and then take a dive. Look what hogan did.

        True but CM Punk is relevant right now. Hogan hasn't been since the 1990's nWo era.
        Impact ratings may stay up for an additional 4-5 episodes then take a dive.

      Not really. Doubtful a show that's been on Spike since 2005 will suddenly gain new audience. The brand is more important than what's on it really. So if CM Punk shows up, people won't care because it's TNA. Sure, the show will get a 1.2 as the regular audience shows up to see what the talk is about, then it will go back to normal. WWE audience will attack and say he's washed up. They said TNA needed to put a new guy in charge like Paul Heyman, but all he would have done is what they did now. Dump all the old stars, add new ones. It would have done no better. TNA has tried every booking idea and every type of star. Even if they did luck out and discover an impressive guy, TNA would not have a long term contract with them, and they would never sign a long term contract. WWE would just sign them, and that would be that. WWE is not stupid, and would drive them down, either with money or internet marketing to run down the competition. Only threat to WWE is themselves. They are driving off audience in the long run. They turned their PPV business into a $9.99 internet stream. If they have 600k customers, 150k of them were the ones buying every PPV for $600 a year, now they pay $120. So they need 2.5x the people to break even on the revenue they are cannibalizing, not to mention the costs of running it. Probably need 500k just to get back to par.. 100k more isn't going to pay for all the associate costs of running it. Which means simply, WM will not be included next year, which 400k of them was probably the main selling point. Also the price will probably increase, which even $15 is a 50% jump. Fortunately, price increase is exactly the way to go, because the people left are the ones who will pay $25 a month for it.
