    maybe they should have put it in more theaters… they only had it in certain areas… next time nationwide and u will make an easy bank row

  2. Jeff says:

    Lololol they need to start advertising and bringing more shows to the big cities as opposed to wasting time and money in these redneck hick towns with small populations

  3. justinblazer says:

    lmao. they shouldnt have even tried it. it doesnt matter how many theaters it was in, the main thing is tna audience isnt that big to do something like that.

  4. Unknown says:

    This was a great event (except for Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez stinking up what could have been the best TNA Tag match of the year).

    Anyone who missed it live, do whatever you can to watch it.

  5. Scott says:

    Lol. Maybe it would of helped if they pre showed hogans porno.

  6. hahah says:

    yeh more theathers good idea not. that would just equel more money lost for them

  7. hahah says:

    theaters

    Why try to fly with the big dogs? Strike a deal with a national chain such as Hooters! Would be better than losing your ass showing it in theatres. They really need a better booker. With all the talent they have they should be kicking WWE’s ass!

  9. Me says:

    They need to come with better and inovative quality matches. Their talent (Angle, Sting, Dudleyz, A.J., Daniels, Chavo, Jeff Hardy, Anderson …) is getting old, bruised, battered and beaten. They need to be more “wise” with the actual match booking in order to make talent still look good. Maybe less acrobatic and more realistic (MMA type)?

    that’s just sad…c’mon dixie.

  11. jim says:

    Not a big enough audie nce duh

  12. deathedge says:

    The show was actually good; Better promoting and storylines would of boosted attendence greatly. Let’s just fact it, there were only two reasons most people ordered the PPV:

    1) Roode vs Storm

    2) Aces and 8s

    The rest were likely hardcore TNA marks and hardcore wrestling fans.

  13. DA says:

    The problem was probably the pricing. Screenvision who distributed the PPV to the theatres probably had the theatres jack the price up. I work at a theatre that showed UFC 143 in 3D in theatres and we had to charge $25 per ticket, when a normal 3D show is $12. We only had about 12 people in the theatre

    Things TNA need to do:

    Advertise like crazy.
    Get partnerships with other companys.
    I.e. Soft Drinks, Beer, Fast Food Chains, Toy Companys, Game Companys.
    PPV’s always on the road.
    Do Impact in a better location.
    Get a real big ppv show with over 30’000 watching in a arena.
    Give Austin Aries new music.
    Keep the show steady and with all the enhancements the show would get taken more seriously as some kind of competition to WWE.

    I mean 3’000 for BFG not even 3’000. WWE gets more than that at normal RAW shows.

    I’ll give TNA credit for being experimental and trying something different.

  16. Deathedge says:

    @The Kayfabe Ninja

    Yeah… Instead of using Vince’s ideas, they’re using Dana’s.

  17. echo says:

    The theaters they show TNA PPVs at are in bad locations. Just from my experience, I live in New York City and the ONLY theater they were showing it in was in Yonkers, which is 10 – 15 miles away. For a city where the majority of people don’t have cars, and there’s no train service (I’m unsure if there’s bus service) to get to Yonkers, nobody in a city of 8 million people is going to go there.

  18. -J- says:

    TNA needs better people running the marketing department they need to build awareness, you can have the best product in the world but what good is it if nobody really knows about it?

  19. Jessy says:

    worst marketing department in years, they need to restructure the office a bit. PPV was awesome!
