    vince is got to be mad at this

    • Wannabecompany

      Mad, please Vince barely acknowledges TNA is around, TNA is like a pimple on his ass, annoying but sooner or later it goes away…..

        TNA you’re not gonna take their spotlight. All you know how to do is use WWE hasbeen talent to fill your main event roster.

          I dont think tna is trying to take away WM’s spotlight…just some of their fans.

        • Anand

          I think TNA is trying to piggyback on the huge crowd that would come-in to NY to see Wrestlemania. If I were a wrestling fan and am coming to NY to see WM, I would probably spend a few bucks and see what TNA has to offer in a special live event…

            Westbury is on long island wrestlemania is in jersey its 3hrs to get from there to here.

    • Alex

      Whatever mr bischoff.

    • Hardy

      I doubt it aha, tna or wrestlemania? That’s a tough decision!

  • Shawn

    O Jesus Christ that’s one of the smartest things they’ve ever done broadcast to a much larger audience. Doesn’t roh do something on that weekend aswell

  • Ken

    Just imagine if you're a kid and your dad surprises you with a trip to NY to see some wrestling, and you're there thinking YAY WRESTLEMANIA WOO!!! and then you end up at Impact.

    That would suck suicidally…

    • just a fan

      might require some counseling. :) lol

    • Hardy

      Great comment! But really tna over wrestlemania? Highly doubt anyone would even turn up to tna! I mean its wwe’s biggest ppv of the year -.-

  • mjledesma

    Yeah because 75 people will show up. You have the HoF and ROH there that weekend also.

  • amaanakter786

    If Hogan, Bischoff and Dixie think that having a live event during the biggest weekend in the sports entertainment industry then they have another thing coming. TNA is not even going to make a blemish on Wrestlemania weekend fact.

  • Lalberts

    I don't know if it's wise to attack WWE like that, but at least TnA still acknowledges that they are a wrestling company, so fuck it. Best of luck to them.

  • GODSENT83

    It’ll be hilarious when roh does better than them

    That's like having a high school football game on Superbowl Sunday. What idiots.

  • A.C.

    Almost all of Dixie, Hogan and Bischoff's decisions in the last few months especially keep leading me to the same conclusion – they're purposely flushing it down the hole! There was a time when TNA was awesome, but they don't want that anymore.
