    That rating is slightly up, but with the question that has been repeated numerous times and given numerous answers, what can tna do to get higher ratings like 1.5 and up on a regular?

    • Sturk says:

      It's not anything they can do on screen. To ask that would be to say they havent given us mostly good shows throughout the whole 2013. When we talk ratings we can't always talk on screen. Just because ratings doesnt budge dont mean on screen isnt good. It's more of a network, advertising, marketing and budget problem. Stuff that obviously nobody can do anything about or they would have already. Like Hulk and Eric said in their canada q and a…. TNA needs Dixie's daddy to give them some more money. Thats not gonna happen so they press on as is.

      • Philly_Cheese says:

        More money isn't the problem… You don't sink more money into something that isn't working. It's partly the fact that TNA has little to no advertising in their budget, they overpay wrestlers like Hogan quite often. They spent far to much going on the road, when that money could've been used for advertising.

        Also yes, the on screen product has been going downhill. I find the matches have become more just tossed together for giggles without anything behind them. While the matches themselves are good, they lack any real reason to watch unless you're a hardcore wrestling fan. You can also tell the moral for the wrestlers is down significantly, as the quality of some of the work has been going downhill compared to their past work.

      Get used to TNA being the little dog for a looooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggg time. We might be dead or elderly before they become a true big dog. We are first gen TNA fans. It'll take way more ppl to be raised on TNA to help. Plus dont forget WWE ratings are not what they were either. Wrestling isnt as popular as it once was. WWE is viewed as wrestling. So people who wanna see wrestling will pretty much only watch WWE. Wrestling is that thing that WWE does in America's eyes

      • Leg Drop Jobber says:

        Most current TNA fans are at least 2nd gen fans. TNA lost at least half of their 1st gen fans that were into the amazing KO's division and X Division of the past. TNA may have picked up SOME new fans during the "Hogan Era," but they lost just as many as they have gone more in a "sports entertainment" direction with their product, rather than the "wrestling" product of the past.

    like i said on here before. reading about the ratings is kind of pointless. it either up a little or down a little. it nothing new and something that will surprise us.

  3. Luchador says:

    until they have better marketing

  4. Get_Carter says:

    Rewind a couple of years and everyone was swearing that Hogan was going to bring TNA 3+ ratings. Oh how times have changed. Going live on the road didn't produce any real bump either. I really wish TNA could get over the hump but after so many years I don't see it happening. Spike tv isn't exactly the USA network but it's not chump change either. What options are available? A jump to TBS/TNT?

    • tna24 says:

      i dont think many other networks will jump at a shot at tna. plus with how things are in the wrestling world. tna better off with spike who will do anything to keep them. spike not the best place for tna but it all they got at the moment.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Back when they first announced going on the road, I said it would be financially disastrous and wasn't going to work. They've gone on the road before this, and it never did anything for the ratings… The only difference this time around is that they spent far more than ever before.

      TNA was foolish believing Hogan would do much of anything… He's known for his time in WWE during the 90s and always will be; he's irrelevant to anything in the industry now. Fans aren't going to watch the product just because of him, and most fans under the age of 23 or so barely know who he is, nor do most of them care.

    Keep Bully as champ.. Dude owned it on Thursday. Hairs on my neck stood up, hasn't done that for a while. He looked like a beast. He is a beast. Until someone can challenge him on the mic why change. Keep the story ticking with a guy at the top of his game.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      This isn't going to happen, the story is heading towards A&8s members costing him the title at B4G.

    • jflegler says:

      I 100% agree with you.

      Currently, he is unparalleled in TNA. As much as I like AJ Styles (he is actually my favorite wrestler), he was trumped by Bully Ray, making him look ridiculously green. Outclassed is a word that comes to mind. There was a moment when Bully covered for him because Styles did not realize that he should have jumped in with some heat back at Bully. "Whatsa matta, you aint got nuttin to say?" Bully then got the dead crowd behind AJ when he wanted to quiet everyone from chanting "AJ".

      Bully Ray is the epitome of a professional.

      I do want to see the strap on AJ, but if you are looking for someone to rival Bully on the mic, you may need to look into people like Aries, Anderson, Roode, Daniels, Angle, or Storm (Even Kenny King looks promising). Don't get me wrong, AJ is "decent" on the mic, but when you pit him against someone like Bully, he will be overshadowed every time.

      Uh… Your hair stood on your neck?? Wow…did your peckar get hard too….u truly are a joke…and a hamster….

    in comparison, tna has remained rather steady in the ratings compared to raw. The wwe has recently started to put out a fantastic raw product (in large part thanks to hhh's work with nxt and the tag team division). I think there is a boom period to come soon if tna can hold on.

    I am affraid the attitude era fan in me has been won back to wwe now with Wyatt family, Fandango, Shield, Ziggler, Usos, Los Mantatoros, Orton, Bryan, Bellas, Punk, Heyman, Axel, AJ Lee, Steph and HHH, Cody, RVD, Big E… There isnt a dull moment in 3 hours of television. All they need now is time to develop stories with the talent.

    tna needs to concentrate on slowing down entrances, giving them cool themes like AJ, Storm and Roode, simplifying matches (i.e. less ref bumps, less tearing the ring up for the sake of it), just put out a solid product and get that 'buzz' by having 4 off the charts ppvs with 5 star unpredictable matches and surprise signings etc.

    • Peckar says:

      TNA don't have the luxury to slow entrances down, they don't have enough tv time as it is. I will take your word for it that Raw is getting better, I gave up on it a long time ago. From what I seen no one can hold a candle to Bully.

      • iamanadult says:

        Give it a watch purely for bray wyatt (husky Harris). Insanely good gimmick promos and entrance.

        Also 2 hours is a long time. Everyone needs a decent entrance to put over their personality, it's half the game really. Hhh, rock, taker, Kane, Austin, dx, nwo, wyatts, hardyz, new age outlaws, brood, usos, y2j, Aj styles (note only tna guy mentioned)… All had memorable entrances and defined their characters.. If I'm just tuning in, I am not excited or intrigued when Magnus comes out. Not having a go, just saying

        • Peckar says:

          about a hour twenty without ads. Entrances are important, but also cost more money, Pyros etc. I think Mr Andersons entrance is gold. In ring entertainment is more important than getting there but I get you point.

  7. Spencer123_78 says:

    Well Sturk, WWE is more about entertaining than Wrestling. I think TNA is still is more of wrestling tradition than WWE is, i think you got that backwards there.

    Wrestling as a whole has been taking a hit
