  2. Jon says:

    in the summer when everyones out at the beach or oustide not watching tv? good luck.

  3. -J- says:

    10 years in and they are doing a trial run again…they are trying, kinda hard to gain momentum with the hogan bischoff anchor tied to their ass and captain dixie at the helm.

  4. Science & Violence says:

    and the childish haters in 3,2,1…

  5. Beast says:

    This is pretty kool. They should’ve done this in the first place instead of getting cocky and going live on mondays. I’ll check it out now!

  6. havok says:

    they did this back in 2010 for about 2 months and stopped cause they couldnt afford doing live shows and that was ever other week….and Science & Violence its not hating hes just stating his opinion…big difference

  7. Joe says:

    Brooke Hogan and Gunnar Live? Yes!!! this is exactly what I wanted! Sometimes haters have a reason to hate. RIP TNA 2002-2013

  8. echo says:

    Impact is much better live. Good to see this decision.

  9. Jon says:

    I’m not “hating” lol, not at all. I honestly think going live in the summer is a terrible move, it’s not the time to do it. go live in the winter or fall, not the summer. It’s my understanding that even WWE experiences a bit of a ratings drop in the summer, it’s just how it’s been i think for a long time. I believe the ppv buyrate drops too for the summer ppv’s too outside of summerslam. Good Luck, i hope it works but history tells me it probably won’t. Its too bad cuz with a stronger TNA and a stronger ROH, we would get a stronger WWE too. Good for all the wrestlers and the fans. It’s just i think going live in the summer isnt a smart business move.

    Personally if i was in charge of lets say WWE, i would eliminate the july ppv and probably december ppv, give the wrestlers all of july and december off except for tv tapings. It’s just.. summer you know, why spend time inside watching tv when you can be outside at the beach or you know, having a fire or just.. basically enjoying the weather.

  10. Jon says:

    Theres a reason why shows like criminal minds, greys anatomy and big bang theory are repeats in the summer, it’s because they know people are outside enjoying the weather.

    Bad live wrestling is bad
