Ya watched bits of the last match and that arena looked super empty. Does TNA even make a profit?

Nope, they are losing money like a sinking ship. That's where for contract negotiations they are asking wrestling to take as much as 50% or more paycut.

I read the TNA PPV drew around 900 people. Still not a good number considering they only have four or five PPVs a year now. They have no clue how to market. With some of the talent they have/had there over the years they should at least be able to draw 3,000-4,000 people for a PPV. The problem is, nobody knows about them since they have no clue how to get their name out there. The main reason they're still in business is because they have a TV contract. As long as wrestling company has a weekly TV show, they can stay alive for a long time.

Losing money wasn't the only thing that caused WCW and ECW to close. They weren't able to get new TV deals and that's what finally killed those promotions off.

I've been really out of the loop with everything this week, but its great to see WrestleMania shaping into a (hopefully) really solid event. Anyone wanna bet that the Battle Royal will be won by a jobber, because its WWE....

I don't know if he's even in it but I bet it'll be that Alexander Russev guy.
