  • Andrew Ace

    Hulk is killing the product. Are you serious no 6 sided ring

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    actually it's Hogan who really kills the product. Who's with me?

    • Tony P.

      No one is with you

    • http://wrestlingworld.com jerry

    • devon steel

    • Bill

      I actually agree. Tna was at its best (my opinion) in 07-09

    • Robert olley

      I agree with you ray too much money for too less a talent

    • Kevin

      I'm totally with you, Brother! Hogan and Bischoff are beating it to death. Dixie needs to get both of them out of there PRONTO! Then, once she gets someone in place who knows what the hell they're doing, say Sting, for instance, she needs to get Impact on the move. If they ever hope to compete with WWE, TNA needs to get on the move with their live show. Now is the time to strike; the 3 hour Raw is turning into a nightmare, with ratings dropping weekly. WWE is ripe for the picking; if TNA wants to be a real threat, they need to strike now.

    • Wwe4L76

      Agree!

  • Trel67

    When he is talking more about sleeping with his “best friend’s” wife more then the actual product… I’m sorry I lost so much respect for him over the years.

    The Impact Zone is not a problem, it's the only thing keeping TNA afloat. The company isn't big enough or successful enough to justify touring to record shows. They can't fill stadiums or arenas, and a lot of cities out there don't have small enough venues that would be able to host a wrestling show. So unless Hogan intends for TNA to do a tour of highschool gyms, he's kidding himself.

  • Enforcer

    There are many problems with TNA Including but not limited to: Impact Zone, goofy title belt every time Hardy wins it, Hogan, Dixie Carter, Bischoff, Russo, Hogan, NWO reincarnation #15 aka Aces & Eights, Hogan, Hogan and Hogan.

  • Bigdaddychuck

    Tna could go on the road and go to college venues that seat 5 to 10 thousand ppl and than make it look better… They need more ppl than the few hundred filling the impact zone..

    • jdl

      The problem there is that it wouldn't matter. TNA goes on house show tours and are lucky if 1,000 people show up, they typically get a couple hundred. They don't have the critical mass that the WWE has, they're not big enough to draw enough numbers to make touring profitable.

    The Truth comes out

  • LeftyTosser

    The problem with the Impact Zone is not the facility. Because it is in the same place every week there is no air of it being "an event" like RAW. When TNA can get out of Orlando on a regular basis for TV the ratings and attendance will improve. Look at how much better a RAW live event sells for WWE than a regular house show. Unfortunately the expense of a traveling show appears to be beyond what Panda is willing to contribute at this point. The facilities are available for the attendance they draw, but the cost of taking equipment and the crew on the road is what would kill them until they become stronger. If you remember back to the earlier days of the WWF before VKM, the TV shows were all taped at MSG. The WWF did not become larger until VKM started the traveling show which ended up as RAW. The NWA / WCW went through the same process.

    Panda needs to decide to get in or out of the wrestling business. Right now it's more like a hobby for someone instead of a business investment. I'm not sure I care for the way Jarrett ran the business, but at least the passion was there, along with his money being on the line. TNA has far too much talent to continue with the small ratings they are getting.

    yeah like that is the only thing that is killing the product

  • Robert olley

    1 if the problems is the impact zone is getting the same crowd every week and let’s face facts people once you’ve seen one tna or wwe show you can expect much the same these days but wwe go to different venues so the crowds don’t get board. It’s yet another things tna has in common with wcw same venue in the same city they need to do something drastic ,besides hiring more talent then they can utilize or afford ,and quick for 2 reasons to sand themselves and get wwe to up their game.

  • _JIM_

    Hogan’s smart enough to know that to build an audience you have to take the show on the road. Start out in small venues and build your way up. WCW is a perfect example. The first Nitro was in the Mall of America for goodness sakes. Then as the audience grew so did the venues and the ratings were growing right along with the live audiences. This is why TNA needs a wrestling person in charge of the company. Not some supposed business woman who is only concerned about saving money because if she doesn’t her Mommy will pull the plug. If they grew the audience by going on the road for Impact they would have more money to be able to make the product better. Someone needs to explain to Dixie’s Mommy how this works and that if she ever wants to turn a profit she’s going to have to make a hard decision and replace Dixie.

    Hogan = Ratings!!! (0.86 of course)

    • Yanman

      Zema Ion = Ratings too!!! (0.87 of course)

  • Bill

    I like impact zone…reminds me of the war zone on RAW

  • CrankyVince

    Hulk isn’t really killing the product right now. Obviously a lot of you haven’t been watching lately. It’s actually been pretty good tv from TNA lately.
