Does anybody have any idea how TNA manages to stay afloat? Are the people that attend tapings in on the joke?
I have so many questions. Well, just those two, I suppose.
I thought, at first, that it was just a vanity project for Jeff Jarrett. But now, I have no idea.
Panda Energy owns it because their owner's daughter uses it as a vanity project/tax shelter. Also it pulls consistent terrible ratings for Spike TV, but those terrible ratings are slightly better than whatever number the billionth airing of REVENGE OF THE SITH does.
TNA is a privately owned company, so no one really has much of a picture of their finances. I would imagine they turn some sort of profit due to merchandise and house show revenue. Spike TV pays for several of their large contracts (Hulk Hogan, etc.).
Their television ratings have actually consistently gone up on average every year they've been on the air.
I think TNA just has an extremely dedicated core audience of fans who will not watch the WWE under any circumstances and fans of wrestling in general who keep up with every major promotion.
Well, this has certainly been educational. Thanks, everyone.

To be fair, I think this guy does a Botchmania for every wrestling PPV there is. But TNA's crap really does deserve it.
MacGyver Style Bomb
Every PPV is going to have lousy matches and spot, but he only does dedicated episodes to the PPVs that really stink. December to Dismember '06, Great American Bash '91, and of course, Legends of Wrestling.
