        >Available Combo Tickets: 138
        >Current Setup: 1,231
        >Tickets Distributed: 364
        Holy shit.

        Still, it is 3 weeks away. Maybe they can fill it to a bit over a half. Seat fillers also always are options.

        The ticket map has about 650 seats (sold out) plus general admission (apparently also sold out) and recently released standing room only tickets. I'd expect 900-1000 attendance.

      I think just number of tickets isn’t a good enough indicator of who number three would be because TNA is probably still offering more money to talent. It’s a distant number three no matter who it is, but GCW can draw 1k(they have like twice) and you get like $350(we know these numbers for certain because the owner of GCW has posted PayPal screenshots due to some drama). So I think what would really make someone number 3 is how much you make working for them.

    TNA is a perfectly fine tv show but it doesn't have any draws, stars or hot angle to compel people to pay for tickets. It doesn't help that a taping is 3-4 hours with two 2 hour episodes worth of matches with very little promos/angles.

    D'Amore seemed liked by the locker room and he didn't make moronic booking decisions, but he booked a boring show. I don't understand what is unique about being "a show with good wrestling matches like AEW and NXT Black&Gold but in dreary low rent venues"

    TNA needs to embrace what it is and be a (sorta trashy) southern style rasslin tv studio show. Billy Corgan dropped the ball with Powerrr. Just steal the idea.
    Find a studio, embrace a vibe like The Asylum or Impact Zone or LU's Temple. Focus on promo guys who can throw punches. Put the 'good wrestlers' in the X Division and let it be show opening cluster fricks.

    There was a rumor on PWInsider last month that Anthem was floating the idea of taking Impact live every week on AXS and picking a permanent location. The Palms Casino (where Rebllion is) and Full Sail University were floated.

    A live studio show can be fun but the current TNA locker room doesn't have the Mic skills to make it work.

    Powerrr worked for a hot minute because it was LA Knight, Ricky Starks and Eddie Kingston riffing with a live crowd in a small theater, its more like a standup show where each set culminates in a 3 minute fist fight.

    There are a lot of wrestling fans who want that and are not being served it. It's TNA's dropped ball

      Like I know he's divisive but TNA needs to grab Joey Janela *because* he's trashy and has indie "buzz"

      Let him frick around with the X Division or the Digital title. No one in TNA seems to know how to turn their volume up on their carniness.

      TNA needs a Jeff Jarrett like huckster. It needs a new Tenay and West to mark out over the show in a non cringe way, it needs a Perc Angle to give it his all when the bean kicks in. It doesn't feel like TNA without that stuff.

      I don't know who in pro wrestling is capable of hitting those heights and isn't locked down to WWE or AEW

      TNA going all in on the Studio Wrestling route would be my cup of tea. If they could find 3 guys and gals who can cut solid promos, then they would really have something here

      TNA wasn't a draw with D'Amore either. They needed NJPW and AAA crossover to help pop the gates for BFG and Hard to Kill.

    If it were me, here's how I'd try to salvage TNA:
    Cash in on whatever remaining buzz there is and make Jordynne Grace the star of the show. promote her like Chyna, no intergender matches but she's a "wonder of the world" pay fat b***hes like Mickie Knuckles to be "monster of the month" and get thrown around by Grace.

    Sorry to Josh Alexander but I've never seen the Mic skills from him to be the guy. Take a risk and go all in on Hammerstone as the new ace of the world title, he's young, let him do some Jarrett/HHH shit where he gets his hands on the title, even if he loses it for awhile.

    There's not much left that can be done with Eddie Edwards, Kazarian and Eric Young, just them be player coaches to put over the next gen.

    Poach a few guys from GCW: Janela, like him or not, would be good for skits and lowcard frickery. Poach Mance Warner so the show has a hick brawler. Poach Gringo Loco for X Division spot fests. Poach Shane Mercer to throw around X Division guys.

    Grab Santana again. He's got something to prove, let him run with the ball.

    After that, I don't know who's out there?

      TNA is dead, anon. Let it go. The thing currently calling itself "TNA" isn't TNA. It's just a skinwalker.

    The only right move for TNA is to sell the library to Tony for good money and fold. It's a dead promotion.

      Tiny khan doesn't deserve the tape library. I'd rather WWE have control of it. They've treated TNA with more respect then AEW has

    I think TNA is done in the next 2 years tbh. They should have sold to Scott for 5 milly. I don't think they'll be worth even half of that at the end. The buzz for the rebrand didn't even last a month. People will blame that on them firing Scott but these people were never actually going to watch the show let's be honest

    I watch the show and it's genuinely good, but it's an indie fed at this point and probably always will be even if it's around for another 10 years. TNA won't even get Rampage numbers again and they will never move serious tickets. I'm pretty sure MLW and NWA get more and that's sad. The 'TNA could be the number 2 again!' from the iwc was so fricking dumb man

    I don't know enough about guys they could sign to improve but jeez seeing guys like Kaz, Myers, EY and Edwards getting pushes is tragic if Dreamer starts booking himself on TV I might just drop the show all together tbh
