TNA Wrestling Unveils New Main Event Mafia – Spoiler Alert

The booking team in TNA Wrestling is busy at work looking for answers to stop the falling Impact ratings this summer and their brilliant idea was revealed at this weekend’s Impact tapings. The Main Event Mafia is back but how main-event this mafia is truly the biggest question.

[adinserter block=”1″]I want to start out by offering TNA fans a warning. Do not read any further if you wish to avoid spoilers for upcoming Impact Wrestling shows. Okay you’ve been warned, read on at your own volition.

The NBA playoffs are over, the Stanley Cup is in Chicago, and TNA Impact ratings continue to decline. Current angles with Aces & 8s, Rampage Jackson, Bound for Glory, and Bully Ray vs. Hulk Hogan are not only failing to connect with TNA viewers, they have lost a large amount of viewers who appear to have no interest in returning. TNA is treading on dangerous ground right now and the writing team is under immense pressure. So what would this group of brilliant wrestling writers come up with their backs up against the wall? Well of course they’d bring back a Main Event Mafia with a twist…a MEM that isn’t so main-event.

Sting is on a crusade and is forming a brand new MEM. The first member introduced at the recent tapings was well an old member, Kurt Angle. Great start! The second member introduced was Samoa Joe. Another great pick! From all reports Joe looked pretty cool in his suit standing with Sting and Angle. He’s a former champion and has not been booked to his full potential since the Hogan-Bischoff regime moved in. I really like the idea of elevating him into the Mafia. They should have stopped with Joe because it went downhill from there.

Magnus was the next member of TNA to join the new Mafia. Here is where it gets murky for me. The whole idea of the MEM is supposed to be a group comprised of former world champions and headliners. Magnus is neither! I like the idea of someone like Magnus getting the rub but Magnus has never impressed me. I don’t see money in him over the long haul and I can’t imagine most people do. I do like the move for the U.K. but how often are they in the U.K.? I wouldn’t be surprised to see Magnus get a massive push here, win BFG, and defeat Bully to win the title.

The final member of the new MEM is a guy that hasn’t even been in TNA a whole month. Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rampage Jackson rounded out the group at the Vegas tapings. Yep that same Rampage who had that great angle with Kurt Angle a few weeks ago is now…on Kurt’s team! This is a guy who just recently said he wasn’t interested in fully committing to TNA until his MMA career is over.

This one just baffles me! TNA struck gold a few weeks ago with the Rampage-Angle segment. They had decent chemistry and I think they had a match that people may have paid to see. It didn’t take long for them to change their minds as it looks like that angle was completely meaningless. I will say this to be fair. It may be a little early to judge this one because who knows how this thing turns out. All I know is that they had something different people were talking about a few weeks ago and have done a tremendous job since then of throwing cold water on it to cool it down.

[adinserter block=”2″]Here we have TNA just spinning their wheels once again. A second MEM weaker than the first is supposed to boost ratings? I have seen more people groaning about this one than getting excited in the social media world. TNA needs a complete overhaul and replicating a fairly successful gimmick with a cheap version is not the answer.

  1. I think it should be pointed out that Mikee, Styles, Harry, and anyone else bragging about TNA in the UK is the same person or they just happen to all have the same i.p. address:)

    • LOLOLOL! What a troll. Way to post under different names from the same computer, idiot. Wow, what lengths to go to defend a financially flailing company. Hey, hear about all those releases today? Don't worry…we all know that they're not doing it to save money….of course they want to give more time to those older stars.

      Oh, and check out this report from an actual wrestling journalist (ya know, none of that fan-written, Bleacher Report garbage) that says that TNA is currently ONE FULL MONTH behind on payroll: http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/TNA_News_1/art

      Game. Set. Match.

      • Way to avoid every point i made. Best uk Ratings. ENJOY YOUR WWE KIDDIE CRAP and i'll enjoy PROGRAMMING AIMED AT ADULTS. WOW. YOU ARE AN IDIOT. ME AND MY FRIENDS IN MY APARTMENT DO HAPPEN TO USE THE SAME COMPUTER YOU KNOW? ARE YOU ACTUALLLY DISABLED? YOU ASSUME THAT 3 PEOPLE CAN'T USE ONE COMPUTER? THE POINT IS THAT WHATEVER YOU SAY, TNA IS THE MOST POPULAR SHOW IN THE UK. IT HAS THE BEST ROSTER AND THE ONLY THING SEPERATING WWE AND TNA IS MONEY. WITHOU VINNIE MAS THERE TO SUPPORT IT, IT WOULD SINK.

  2. @ Harry. Exactly WWE is hilariously bad. TNA owns WWE. I'm glad the rest of the wrestling world apart from the US is aware of that. WWE fans are all kids anyway. There are like 20% adults in the crowd at events and they are only their with their kids. Tna's crowds are like 60% adults who know what a good company is.

  3. Quite honestly, the USA is the only country that hasn't fully bought into the TNA product yet. the UK, Australia and India (ring ka king is a TNA run show in india) are established homes for the company thus far. I don't think TNA cares too much about US ratings when it has all that going for it. TNA garbage, as you put it, beats anything wwe puts on in the UK every damn week, tell me how that spells disaster?

    • LOL What a dumb statement! I dont think TNA cares about ratings? How do you think they pay the bills? Less people watch, less ad revenue, less eyes for promotion, no TV deal, no company. What do you think they care about? That is just a ridiculous statement.

  4. TNA is garbage, and the ratings don't lie. You delusional fanboys are just pathetic with your excuses. Accept that your product is bad, and work towards fixing it.

    I think Scott Steiner said it best. "The numbers don't lie. And they spell disaster for you."

    By the way, feel free to call me a mark due to my name but at least know that I feel that 80% of the WWE is also absolute trash.

    • No absolutley 100% of the WWE is trash. Steamy, smelly trash at that. You obviously never watch TNA as you would know how much better it is than WWE. I prefer pro wrestling for adults. Not dancing fat guys in red tracksuits or a superman who never loses or divas matches taht last 30 seconds or so many other things i could name that sicken real wrestling fans (TNA fans) WWE, my friend, is the garbage. How does it spell disaster for TNA when they are beating YES beating WWE in the UK ratings? You will have to explain that to me. TNA's product is very good which is why…. They are beating WWE's shows in ratings in the UK all of the time
      TNA's good ratings in the UK even allows them to air more shows on the network like Xplosion (not so good ratings wise), TNA PPVs (draws very well), they even air specials in the UK.

  5. TNA's ratings in the UK are way better than in the US. Usually, they arebeating WWE's shows in ratings in the UK most of the time
    TNA's good ratings in the UK allows them to air more shows on the network like Xplosion (not so good ratings wise), TNA PPVs (draws very well), they even air specials in the UK.

    Quite honestly, the USA is the only country that hasn't fully bought into the TNA product yet. the UK, Australia and India (ring ka king is a TNA run show in india) are established homes for the company thus far. I don't think TNA cares too much about US ratings when it has all that going for it.

      • HAHA pathetic. It's more popular in the UK because people there aren't going to accept toasty manure as pro wrestling and everything TNA does is superior to World's Worst Entertainment.

          • It's much better than WWE that's what. ARE YOU HANDICAPPED? CAN YOU NOT GET THAT INTO YOUR HEAD. TNA IS THE MOST POPULAR WRESTLING SHOW IN THE UK. YOUR PRECIOUS WWE IS NOT SO PERFECT AFTER ALL. Smackdown get's like 80,00 in the UK lol. That's pathetic.

    • On what basis? Are you out of your mind?

      Are they not doing well? Cutting back to 4 PPVs a year and changing time slots due to bad ratings are a pretty good indication to me that they aren't.

          • Name on other comapany since the 80's that has had better ratings apart from wwe and wcw?

          • By the way…Giving a thumbs up to your own comment does not make it look better. You sir have talked nothing but BS.

          • Since this debate started about booking, I will again refer you to the two latest articles on Bleacher Report about the last episode of IMPACT WRESTLING.
            http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1687218-tna-im
            http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1687411-tna-im

            I could list more but do i seriously need to? You are just wasting both our time now. This is factual evidence that in general, people are enjoying TNA. Not to mention The fact that TNA beats WWE every week in the UK ratings. I'm going now. You have been proved wrong about no one enjoying the booking as i have shown you hundreds of comments praising it and the fact that UK ratings are bigger than WWE. OWNED.

          • Did you actually read the articles? The second article says, "Overall, I thought this was a great episode of Impact Wrestling. This is the best episode they’ve had in a while. Despite most episodes the past few months being good or solid, none of them created the intrigue that this week’s did."

            That isn't exactly a glaring endorsement for TNA over the last few weeks. He's saying one great week.

            Why would my opinion change because a Bleacher Report writer said they liked an episode? I hate cream cheese. Do you expect me to change my mind because a blogger talks about how much he or she loves cream cheese?

            Here we are almost 6 hours later and you still haven't made a case.

          • He is saying that over the last few months YES MONTHS TNA has been good or solid which is completley detacthed from what you have been saying about the booking. To me this IS a glaring endorsement that they have been consistently good for the last few months. IT'S LIKE BANGING MY HEAD OF A WALL WHEN TALKING TO YOU. As i have explained, i have shown you TWO articles were the writer is talking positivley about tna's booking and the comments from hundreds of users have also been praising TNA. As well as TNA getting better ratings in the UK. Your point when you first replied to me was that no one enjoys TNA's booking. I have shown you enough evidence to prove that people generally do enjoy it. I have made a big case and that seems to be backed up here by other people that you have argued with. You are just to ignorant and pig headed to accept hard proof against what you have said. Please, you are the one who doesn't have a case. You argument has been disproven now please stop wasting your time and my time.

  6. Tna's ratings compared to WWE aren't great but it depends what you are compaing them too. They never have been great compared to WWE becuase WWE's target audience is children which is a much earier market to crack. Ecw's highest rating at any time was 1.2 and that was in the wrestling boom and their attendences were never more than 1000 people. If ECW was considered serious with those numbers in the wrestling boom then TNA is doing very well now. Also ecw was never doing tours of the UK and BEATING yes BEATING WWE in the uk ratings. Considering that TNA started out as an offshoot of NWA with no backing from a millionaire only eleven years ago and they have now grown into the most popular wrestling show in the UK and are more successful than ECW ever was is amazing and it is sickening to see you criticize them for such crap. Yes they have changed time slots to imrove ratings but that doesn't mean they aren't doing well. I'm pretty sure they are doing better than dixie carter or jeff jarrett ever imagined. A good company always tries to improve. They changed to four ppv's a year to have better build of storylines for the four major ppv's which is something the wwe should consider.

      • Well that is down right ignorant. TNA's ratings have always fluctuated. It's a new company and it will take probably another 5 – 10 years for them to find their identity. Right now they are doing very well with booking. The bottom line is that they are still doing better than ECW ever was and way better tahn any other company apart from WWE. Pushing the young guys like Magnus and Chris Sabin and most people and critics i have read are really positive to the aj styles and chris sabin stories as well as the knockouts booking. Yes the reaction to the MEM has been mixed but the critics i read ( and i read most websites) said that they would be fine with it as long as it was used to push the younger guys. This is exactly what is happening according to you. You are actually against TNA pushing younger guys so you are completley on your own.

    • First of all I never claimed to be a journalist. Second of all what am I saying here is b.s.? The ratings are public and reflective of fan interest and business, they just changed time slots because their ratings were not good, and they cut down on PPVs because they weren't making money on them. So I ask you what am I saying is B.S.?

      • The fact that you have neglected to reply to my comment says it all. I have shown you 2 articles from a reputable website where both the writer and the users are praising how the booking was great. The start of this debate was about booking and most of the articles and user comments i have seen have been praising the booking. The ratings have aways been the same and i think getting 1.1 million to 1.2 million viewers most weeks is pretty good considering were TNA came from. And if you care so much about ratings then explain to me why TNA is besting WWE in the UK ratings every week? Impact beats RAW and absolutley demolishes Smackdown every week in the UK. So going by your theory that good booking means good ratings then the UK obviously thinks TNA's booking is much better than WWE's. Something that i strongly agree on. For example. I used to be a WWE fan but the booking of John Cena winning every single match put me and most people i know, off.

        • Harry I haven't replied to your comment because I just can't argue with naive. I can find a blog that likes a cancelled television show and just because one person likes it or a movie that bombed, it doesn't all of the sudden mean that these television shows or movies are good. The ratings don't lie. Less people are watching. Why? BECAUSE THE BOOKING ISN'T WORKING!!!!!

          • Sorry you are talking crap again. Has TNA been cancelled? No becuase millions of people enjoy it. And it didn't show you one blog that likes TNA. I showed you two articles about ONE episode were both writers and website users were PRAISING THE BOOKING!!! YOU ARE RIGHT, THE RATINGS DON'T LIE WHICH IS WHY TNA TRASHES WWE IN UK RATINGS. MORE PEOPEL ARE WATHCING ACTUALLY BECUASE THE UK RATINGS ARE ALWAYS RISING!! I CAN SHOW YOU BASICALLY ALL THE ARTCILES FROM THE TNA SECTION OF BLEACHER REPORT AND NEARY ALL OF THEM ARE POSITIVE AS WELL AS THE USER COMMENTS. Slightly less people are watching TNA in the us comapred to last year But slightly more are watching TNA in the uk compared to last year. Plus TNA is new!! WWE is old. Of course the ratings are going to look bad comapred to WWE. Most people i know here in the UK are into TNA more than ever.

      • The WWE womens division, if it can be called a division is pathetic and laughable and the tag team, us and ic titles are a joke. TNA meanwhile has a good tag division, although not as good as two years ago, a great women's division and the x division…well i don't think i need to sell it as It's just awesome. Considering all those things i just can't understand or abide anyone watching WWE apart from children.

    • It really doesn't matter. 5 people saying they like TNA is fine but it doesn't make up for the horrible ratings they have been doing here in the U.S. The company cut back to 4 PPVs a year because nobody is buying them and you're telling me they are in good shape?

      • Tna cut back to 4 ppv's a year becuase the quality of the ppv's are much better if the stories have time to build. You are coming up with nonsense just to suit yourself. You asked me to name anyone who enjoys TNA's booking i showed you on article from a reputable website where the writer and most of the users were praising the product. And it wasn't just 5 people. The comments had 15 likes. You sir, are talking crap. Tna gets 15,000 every year at wembley arena! Well you asked me to name anyone who enjoys the booking so it that's what i did. No actually most artcicles on there are positive about TNA becuase they know the product is better than anything else. Kockouts and tag teams especially are much better than anywhere else. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1687411-tna-im
        There is another article praising TNA with hundreds of comments also praising and that's just for one episode, on top of Tna owning WWE in the UK. Any lapse in US ratings is made up for with the suprisingly big UK ratings. I think i have made my point. I'm going now. Let me know when you are done getting owned.

        • Hey Harry…they cut to 4 PPV's a year because NOBODY WAS BUYING ANY OF THEM!!!! If you actually believe in your mind that TNA gladly threw away the mountains of cash that come with PPVs (for company's not named TNA, that is), than your view of TNA is much more clouded than I initially thought. They cut to 4 PPV's because they're having trouble breaking 10,000 buys a month for the events. To give you an idea of how bad that is, the Women's Indoor Football league recently had a game available on PPV that was watched by 23,000 people! So, sorry to break the news to you – TNA didn't cut to 4 PPV's to give you a better product; they cut to 4 PPV's a year because that's barely all they can afford.

          • Actually TNA cut there PPV's to four so that the quality of the four would be better and draw more attention. They have been better and they have been praised by the media. If they can afford to tour the UK and Ireland and go on the road permanently then i'm pretty sure they could afford to have a monthly PPV. PPV's don't cost much more than normal shows. 10,000 is bad? Were not in a wrestling boom here. And by the way Tna's pay per views actually do better in the UK than WWE to give you an idea of how bad that is, WWE has been around for countless tears while TNA has been around for 11 years and it still has a better UK fanbase tahn WWE.

          • I can't do this anymore. You are brainwashed. If you think a company would ditch 8 PPVs a year that they were making money on so they can boost the "quality" of the PPVs than you are just too ignorant to debate. Enjoy your TNA but I'm done.

          • Yes i do and most proffesional critics do. I will enjoy my TNA becuase it's actually good you can enjoy whatever show you watch. If It's WWE then i pity you.

          • He is saying that over the last few months YES MONTHS TNA has been good or solid which is completley detacthed from what you have been saying about the booking. To me this IS a glaring endorsement that they have been consistently good for the last few months. IT'S LIKE BANGING MY HEAD OF A WALL WHEN TALKING TO YOU. As i have explained, i have shown you TWO articles were the writer is talking positivley about tna's booking and the comments from hundreds of users have also been praising TNA. As well as TNA getting better ratings in the UK. Your point when you first replied to me was that no one enjoys TNA's booking. I have shown you enough evidence to prove that people generally do enjoy it. I have made a big case and that seems to be backed up here by other people that you have argued with. You are just to ignorant and pig headed to accept hard proof against what you have said. Please, you are the one who doesn't have a case. You argument has been disproven now please stop wasting your time and my time.

          • LOL, 10,000 is TERRIBLE. Consider that the Women's Indoor Football league just did 23,000 buys and that a BAD WWE buyrate is around 165,000 and then ask yourself how great 10,000 buys is.

            PS- Do you know how Bleacher Report got their name? It's so that the people who sit in the "bleachers" (AKA, fans) can write about anything they want. You, me, or anyone else for the matter, can write for Bleacher Report. Just because 1 TNA support talks about how the quality will be better on 4 PPV's, doesn't mean that's why they did it. You're falling for exactly what the company wants you to believe. Of course they're going to spin it as the product will be better…what do you think they'll say, "We have to cut it down to 4 PPV's because it's simply no longer financially feasible to run 12."?????

            Do the math…at $45.99 per PPV, TNA makes $20 (after licensing, PPV fees) per buy. At 10,000 buys, that's $200,000. That's just enough for the arena that they're holding the event in. That's not even enough to cover all of the talent and travel. Wake up!!! Open your eyes!!!

          • YOU ARE SOOOO ANTI TNA IT'S LAUGHABLE. DOES IT HURT THAT TNA DESTROYS WWE IN THE RATINGS EVERY WEEK IN THE UK? IF TNA CAN TOUR THE UK AND HAVE A PROMOTION IN INDIA AND RUN OVW AND HAVE SPECIAL SHOWS IN THE UK THEN THEY CAN AFFORD TO SET UP A PPV. TNA OWNS WWE IN THE UK.

          • DO YOU SERIOUSLY CONSIDER YOURSELF SOME SORT OF AUTHORITY ON PRO WRESTLING? If you do then how about you learn that TNA has REPLACED it's Pay per view's with special one night only events. Every point you have tried to make is BS and has been disproven. Walk away.

          • 165,000 is WWE's avergage buyrate. Anyway you completley avoided my point about how TNA out does WWE every week in the UK despite WWE ahving been around for countless years and Tna for ten years. That my friend is TERRIBLE. Summerslam couldn't get as many viewers in the UK as an average TNA PPV. That's pathetic. lol TNA changed for the prodcut to be better. Everyone knows that. You might want to read the article i linked earlier and WAKE UP.

          • TNA did it to make the four PPV'S better you idiot. get a grip. Tna could do the PPV's if they felt they needed. But TNA are making more money now tahn ever since they went on the road. iF THEY CAN TOUR THE UK AND SET UP A NEW PROMOTION (RING KA KING) IN INDIA THEN I'M PRETTY SURE THEY COULD PUT ON A PPV, YOU FOOL.

          • TNA's ratings in the UK are way better than in the US. Usually, they arebeating WWE's shows in ratings in the UK most of the time
            TNA's good ratings in the UK allows them to air more shows on the network like Xplosion (not so good ratings wise), TNA PPVs (draws very well), they even air specials in the UK.

            Quite honestly, the USA is the only country that hasn't fully bought into the TNA product yet. the UK, Australia and India (ring ka king is a TNA run show in india) are established homes for the company thus far. I don't think TNA cares too much about US ratings when it has all that going for it.

          • Tna's ratings compared to WWE aren't great but it depends what you are compaing them too.

A good company always tries to improve. They changed to four ppv's a year to have better build of storylines for the four major ppv's which is something the wwe should consider.

          • Are you literally mentally disabled? TNA has replaces it's PPV'S with ONE NIGHT ONLY SPECIALS! They are exactly the sdme as pay per views and cost as much to make (if not more becaus they are hiring more people that used to be in TNA for the specials) and they price at only 10 – 15 dollars less. The next time you want to make a point, you braindead WWE MARK, how about you actually do some research?? Instead of making an ass out of yourself.

          • It is the most respected website on wrestling and very respected on other sports. Get a life. You have forgot about merchandising and sponsorship and the fans in attendance and most of TNA's pay per views were getting between 14 -16,000 buys and even more for bigger events so that's like 300,000 and that's not counting the sponsorship merchandise or fans in attendance. Yes TNA changed to get more buy rates for their top four pay per views but they were making way more than you say and they are still producing shows monthly, they are the same as pay per views and cost the same as other pay per views. WAKE UP!

          • Where are you getting these numbers? TNA's PPVs were doing between 5-8,000 and their last PPV was reported to do around 12,000 which is horrible when you have 1.1 million people watching your product every week. You have no idea what you are talking about.

          • TNA's last PPV (Slammiversary) had 17,000 buys? http://www.cagesideseats.com/tna-impact-wrestling
            Get your damn facts right.

            Tna never get under 10,000. http://www.kayfabekickout.com/5/post/2012/12/prel

            Why do you feel the need to broadcast your unfounded opinions. I'm giving you evidence with everything i say. You give nothing to prove what you are saying. You clearly have no understanding of the situation so i'm not going to converse with you anymore. You have a slanted opinion of TNA and refuse to see that it is in fact not struggling and the most popular wrestling show in the UK.

          • Are you deluded? Where the hell are you getting your numbers? Slammiversary which was the last ppv got 17,000 buys. TNA has always got about the 12,000 mark even for the smaller shows. The point is that at about 30 dollars a pop there is a big difference between your 5-8,000 and 17,000. Get your facts write before you comment. I'm done with this. There is no logic in what you are saying at all. Seriously, your unfounded hatred of TNA is blindidng you. I'll admit the numbers aren't great (in america) but they are no where near as bad as you and that hick above called Brett would have us believe. TNA changed format for quality reasons. They have replaced the 8 missing ppv's with one of shows that are basically the same thing (people have to pay for them) so your point about not enough money is not true. Also tna beating wwe in the uk is a huge achievement, that, even you have to admit. To garner so much support from the UK is amazing for where TNA came from. I have also proved your point about no one liking the booking wrong. the rest of the world is enjoying it but if the US prefers a PG show that is more predictable than i can bear then that's their business.

          • Don't start bashing TNA when deep down you know they are producing good shows. I'm done with this. No one likes the booking eh? Try doubling the UK ratings of smackdown and you might get near the UK ratings for TNA. Every point you made has been disproven. That is all.

  7. This article is crap. Most people believe that TNA's booking is great right now, and has been for the last two years. Most people want younger guys in the main event mafia and most critics say that is the best way to build new stars. Magnus is currently top of the BFG series and will be a maint event star by the end of this MEM and Rampage Jackson is a well known name amongst people and was the champion in another sport as well as an actor in a well known film so he qualifies as main event even if he doesn't fight for the TNA title. What you were saying about ratings is nonsense too. TNA's ratings have been slightly fluctuating up and down but are generally still the same. About 1 million – 1.1 million tune in most weeks and it absolutley trashes WWE in the UK ratings so i hardly think they are busy trying to geet better ratings.

    • Sir, you need to remove yourself from your bubble. Ratings have been abysmal in recent weeks and you actually shorted them from the 1.1 million figure last week. THE COMPANY MOVED THE TIMESLOT OVER BAD RATINGS and you're going to tell me ratings are great. Who do you know that believes TNA booking is great right now? I haven't talked to anyone who feels that way. Aces & 8s is not working and nobody cares about Hogan vs. Bully. I do appreciate your passion for TNA and I can certainly respect that but don't start your comment by telling me my article is crap and then use crap to debunk it.

      • Go to bleacher report! There are numerous articles on there praising TNA's booking. Look at the comments by users on those articles also. All the comments are praising the suicide/aries angle from last week. And by the way peopel are interested in the sabin/Bully angle which is coming and destination x and the aces and eights are working. Bully Ray is hugley popular among fans. I don't know what bubble you're in but please stop talking crap. I beg you to view the most recent articlt on Bleacher Report and the comments below. Please! That will wake you up. Anyway TNA is more popular in the UK and ireland than ever before. They repeatedly trash WWE here. TNA gets bigger crowds than WWE when they come also. So i guess UK fans can actually recognize geniunley good wrestling shows over childrens shows (WWE)

        • Why in the world would I defer to one person's opinion on Bleacher Report as opposed to FACTS! The ratings don't lie. For that 1 Bleacher Report blog I can probably find 10 on there criticizing TNA. I do agree that TNA is popular in the UK but bigger crowds? I dont think TNA has even broken 10,000 fans in the UK (or anywhere for that matter).

          • You sir, are talking crap. Tna gets 15,000 every year at wembley arena! Well you asked me to name anyone who enjoys the booking so it that's what i did. No actually most artcicles on there are positive about TNA becuase they know the product is better than anything else. Kockouts and tag teams especially are much better than anywhere else. And i wasn't asking you to look at the article i was asking you to look at comments from users. Numerous people saying that they were hooked from start to finish and how TNA > WWE. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1687218-tna-im

          • Well maybe they haven't but the got what WWE basically get;'s there and i don't know why you would try too back up your argument with an article were the writer is saying that it was a massive hit and most of the comments praising tna. That baffles me. That just strengthens my argument.

          • Yes…..I am. Don't even try to deny it. Dirty heels (Roode and Aries) Bad influence ( Kaz and Daniels) and Chavo and Hernandez have had amazing mathces this year and put WWE to shame.
