Well I agree with you well i've always tryed to keep up
with TNA by reading impact spoilers results, try and keep
up to date with the ppvs ever year and i've been watching Impact
Wrestling all year and I dont think i've missed much episodes
because I went out to the movies for the reason why but
I dont go see a movie very often thow just on thursday is
a good time to go here.

Well I have been enjoying the free TNA like ppvs on tv
Destination X was good with that Bully Ray vs. Chris Sabin
match and hardcore justice with chris sabin vs bully ray
in a steel cage match and the ppv led to a part two with
main event mafia vs. aces and eights and no surrender had
bobby roode vs. magnus, austin aries vs aj styles and a last man
standing match between Bully Ray and Mr. Anderson for the
tna world heavyweight championship.

I also been enjoying team ego(Bobby Roode, Christoper Daniels
and Kazarien) I agree with you somewhat about mem last
few weeks with out kurt angle have been crappy and Joe just
doesnt pick up the paced anymore.

I have been liking the fallout between aces and eights and
how Wes Briscoe was removed from the group by losing
a match between mem and knux has been good on the mic
and I heard mr. anderson is coming back and I also been
enjoying the knockout division and I like Gail Kim.

I also like AJ Styles from a short run of being heel to a face
after retiring devon and hes just been amazing and Dixie
Carters new heel gimmick surprises me and she has acted
well sure knows much about this business now it doesnt
take to long id say if you a fan for 2 years I think you could
learn lots about wrestling.

Part of me wants to laugh at TNA potentially taking Impact off the road, but another part of me nods in approval.

They went on the road, it didn't work out as planned, might as well go back to where they can save money.

My question is this, if they've been so popular in Europe, why don't they film over there? They might be able to turn a profit if they get those turnouts.

Would cost a lot of money going over there all the time, for the company and the wrestlers.

I suppose. I had figured they'd want to tape like, a few months of TV over the course of a week or so. Or run some local shows.

The logistics aren't perfect, but was just something that came up in my mind.

They could certainly go a bit more often, they usually only get the occasional WWE tour and when TNA goes over there, so they are hungry for wrestling, be it WWE or TNA.

Come on, they were able to run a wrestling promotion in friggin India and they cannot do it in Europe? Sell the company to a European enterprise or something. It is the only way Mr. Carter is gonna save some money from little princess Dixie's trainwreck. Or you can try to re-locate most of your talent and hire some European talent from there. There is a possible way.

Even though, the moment TNA starts making a profit on the old continent, Vinnie Mac is gonna start making four months tours there.

But when they had the promotion in India, didn't they use a lot of Indian talent? Also, I'm pretty sure the guys from TNA who took part in that relocated there for a period, they weren't traveling back and forth all the time. I could be wrong.

Yep, they probably were re-located for a while. Why cannot they do it in Europe as well? It is a lot easier to make a real multi-cultural company there with Europe being so small compared to the USA. And people will go there if that makes them have a stable job. (Something that is not quite secure on TNA right now).

And Asia and Africa are right there besides everyones. You can bring Indian talent, Iranian talent, Chinese Talent, European Talent, even is Japanese talent. I really don't know why no one has tried to make a big Wrestling business there...

There is virtually no pro wrestling in China. Wrestling in the middle east is relegated to one or two indies that are usually just filled with outside talent, in fact, outside Europe and Japan, India is probably the closest thing to a wrestling community on that side of the globe.

Taping too much tv at a time is also risky, what happens if two months of tv gets taped, but a major player in the top feud gets injured at a live event one week before the next set of two month tapings? Imagine that injury will only last for a week or two, but that the company is doing a tv show taping per day for two weeks.

There's also the "special" factor. Big wrestling promotions travelling to Europe are huge because of how rare it happens, once or twice a year and sometimes not even that. If that once or twice a year becomes two weeks every two months, the "impact" (make your own opinion of a pun) is gone.

Sound more like an opportunity niche than anything else.

I do understand and agree with your point. However, you may not have HUGE incomes for ONE event, but you will have smaller incomes for LOTS of events, which can become as profitable. And also, as I stated before, the moment Vinnie O Mac starts seeing that another wrestling company is winning HIS wrestling money he will start touring more frequently and the impact factor will go down again.

As I said before, all the things you say it may not work sound more like opporunity factors to me.

As soon as I see Dixie Carter turn heel I see a story
about tna wrestling up for sale which I dont think is true.
I believe Dixie Carter being heel right now is a work just like
when Vince mcmahon turned heel one day she is just doin
the same thing herself and shes not bad at being a heel.

I'm sure this heel side of dixie will run its course but it
also gives impact wrestling a nice story to evolve around
sure Hogan will be back after all this is just a start of a
good storyline to come between Styles and Carter.

and see how many other wrestlers in tna be effected by it.

TNA could easily add an extra tour to UK/Europe. I'm a bit surprised they haven't held a ppv in England.
