  1. Whatever says:

    “Leading pro wrestling company” what in the hell are they leading in. It’s sure not the ratings and damn sure not their programming. Will someone please with an intelligent mind and answer what it is. It could be leading in the biggest let downs though.

      It leads in the UK i guess, so that accounts for something. Also, they're doing good to be saying TNA as the leading one, it makes them sound good.

      • Whatever says:

        Now that is an intelligent answer. Thank you for that and I can accept that. Other “fans” need to take a lesson from you on how to give a response.

    • JoeWrestling says:

      They must be leading something, cause W!W!E has copied them enough times. Anyway, you are confusing the word leading with lead. W!W!E is the lead wrestling comany, leading just means high profile, which they are number two. Yes, the word leading can be used to mean the best, but it's also used in general term to mean one of the best.

  2. This sounds huge. I don't know if I'm reading it right, but is this a big deal? I hope it's going to help TNA big time cause they need to do something. TNA is amazing right now no matter what all the smarks on the internet are saying cause all they do is think about marketing for whatever reason. We are fans, we don't run TNA or any wrestling company. If I'm enjoying TNA and it's going to be on tv, I ain't complaining about something stupid like how much they hype their ppvs or matches. I love EY being champ. I love how it happened and shocked me. I love TNA pushing new stars regardless of it being only cause of losing money (Sting Hogan Bischoff Flair etc) the only complaint I have is Dixie Carter. I liked her at first but her coming back is just annoying and makes no sense. MVP moving forward, no exceptions. Stop with the Dixie stuff, just cause you like playing a character doesn't mean it's going for the show. You are boring us to death!!!

    I am actually stoked about this move too….its got some great professional stars under its belt….found that out in wikipedia…..Which means if spike isnt adquate enough for the impact audience, they may have to move on. Someone is thinking well on their feet and keeping it away from employees as they should. everything in management needs to stay on a need to know basis.
