TNA has been fucking awful this year. Which is really sad because 2012 was easily the best year the company had in a long time, if not ever. It's like they only had about a years worth of good ideas after Russo got fired and now they don't have a clue what to do with anyone.

Their biggest problem is their lack of marketing and booking arenas that are way too big for them to fill. Bound For Glory was held in an arena that sits around 13,000 from what I read. What the hell are the people in charge thinking? No wonder the company is losing money and looking to move back to the Impact zone for their TV tapings again. The company is nowhere near as big as they think they are. Unfortunately, it took leaving the Impact zone for their weekly TV tapings for them to realize that.

There are plenty of small to mid sized venues they could book and fill up respectably. It wouldn't cost them as much to tape Impact at these venues and it would save a ton of money. They also never have Impact tapings in NYC, Philly, Boston, Detroit, Toronto and Montreal. Places that have always been wrestling hot towns they completely ignore. They need to take a look at how Ring Of Honor books their shows. They book small gyms and convention halls for their shows and they do just fine. They know who they are and what they're capable of. Hopefully, TNA can figure that out before it's too late, but with an idiot like Dixie Carter running things, that probably won't happen.
