    This is a genuine question I have for TNA fans: who actually purchases these events?
    I mean, they are taped well in advance and then you have to pay to watch? I don’t get that… I don’t see how this is supposed to make them more money than having an actual live PPV. Surely an event like this could have done good business

    • Robert Olley

      We in the uk get them free but i totally agree filming a ppv months in advance also dramatically restricts the storylines. I remember one of them had talent on the card that left soon after it was filmed bit embarassing.

        That’s exactly it. There were TWO title changes on this show, but by the time people in the US can pay to watch it once, those title changes will mean nothing. The same thing with having a team win the tag-titles at a house show when you’ve already taped a month’s worth of shows…

        I think it is great they are free in the UK because realistically, they have a very strong and loyal fanbase there. In the US, they should look at doing these one-off PPV special things more like Smart Mark Video sell indie shows; offer a one-off fee to download an MP4 instead of offering it on PPV months after the fact. I just can’t understand how they make any money off these shows at all
