What if GFW went back to doing 12 ppvs a year?

I know they had some special impact like free ppv tv but if they went back to the old routine I think it would be alright.
WWE makes way to much ppv events and there not hurting any...

If they went back to 12 ppvs then the two means they'd be doing 12 ppvs

What are we discussing?

No one was buying any of the twelve PPV's, though. If people don't want to watch Impact for free (their ratings are the lowest that they've been since their brief time on Fox Sports in the early 2000's) why would you think that people will pay to watch it? YOU don't even watch PPV's, you just buy them on DVD later.

It be neat then 3 or 4 but I remember when they did free ppv tv like events back in 2013 and some of those were successful
like when Chris Sabin won the tna world title from Bully Ray then at the next impact free ppv he lost the belt back to bully ray
in a steel cage then one time later they added a fith ppv called sacrifice and I remember Willow was the poster boy for that
event which was Jeff Hardy

How many Impact PPVs have ~ YOU ~ PAID for?

Your answer to that will be the answer as to why 12 ppvs is a bad idea.


Also cringe at my phone predictive turning "that" into "the two" in my last post.

Back in 2014 they had

Lockdown, Sacrifice, Slammiversary&Bound for glory

Now for the last 3 years they've only had 2 ppvs which are Slammiversary&Bound for glory

I guess they are still high on the free ppv like tv events. Which I dont mind!

I cant believe they got rid of Lockdown as a ppv :evil:

I'm just trying to make a conversation

You keep failing to answer the question of how many shows that you - ISRS - have paid for.

PAY per view. Emphasis to the word pay. Making special events which are broadcast live and in which attractions such as cages are used cost more money than a regular TV taping. That's why they charge you money to watch, otherwise they would lose money and would have to shut down, which would mean no more Impact, no more GFW and this board would be deleted.

For a conversation to work, people have to talk to each other. You ignore posts that say things that you don't like, and complain when people don't post at all. Time after time people point things out to you and you never listen. Stop making threads for the sake of making threads. This isn't Facebook, you shouldn't post something everytime an idea pops into your head. There are no like buttons, this isn't a competition to be popular or to have a thread with lots of comments in.

You've built up this idea of what a forum should be and what you want it to be. Wrestleview isn't that.

Buying a DVD isn't the same as buying a live PPV. That's the issue here. They can make DVDs of the free TV specials because it costs no more to produce a TV special than a regular show. If a PPV is unsuccessful then the company loses money. A company that loses money goes out of business.

Then there you have it. If they go back to 12 ppvs a year then they'll go out of business because their fans don't care enough to order them.
