    Sure the Hulkster wants out of Florida, know what I’m saying!

  2. Scott says:

    But when you draw a few hundred on the road…

  3. Calvin says:

    Sure their house shows have drawn a few hundred. But anytime they’ve filmed on the road they’ve drawn at least two thousand and papered the rest. The problem is they would probably need to draw 5-10 k per tv show to make up for the cost of doing a traveling television show versus one staged in a studio.

  4. -J- says:

    They at least could renovate the impact zone or rent a bigger place SOMETHING BROTHER

  5. JD Storm says:

    if they insist on doing tapings on the road, TNA doesn’t need to rent the biggest facilities. rent smaller facilities. bring only the most crucial equipment. they can have productions that are good without trying to be WWE.

  6. Will Henderson says:

    what TNA needs is to have Spike front the bill for Impact every week when they do start live broadcast of Impact on the road.

  7. Antonio Feliciano says:

    Grass. Always. Looks. Greener on the. Other. Side.stay put.

  8. JD Storm says:

    agreed with Antonio. TNA shouldn’t be in a hurry. things usually go wrong when you get in a hurry.

  9. Chris Epic says:

    Just like they needed to run head to head with RAW…

  10. Scott says:

    True, the allure of a TV show might draw a few extra fans, but with how they draw on the road now for house shows, even with bringing what they only need, it would still be pretty much burning money in a firepit.

    Like someone said, unless Spike foots the bill, stay at the Impact Zone, at least until you have a good, dependable following that would make filming and airing Impact on the road a much better idea.

  11. Scott says:

    Also, TNA claimed about 3,000 was at Bound for Glory, yet someone on here claimed they had only a third of that. Imagine a Thursday night TV show. TNA better have them comps ready to go, and camera tricks to hide a pretty empty arena, even for a small arena if they want to put out the illusion that they are the promotion that people MUST see.

    As somebody who grew up on ECW I’m fine with a promotion running out of the same location week after week. However the Impact Zone is just to small, not in capacity but in physical size. The Stage/Set takes up way to much space, and the building itself appears too narrow with a roof that is too low to allow the crowd to look large (people stacked deep & tall).

    The ECW Arena with the way they had the camera setup & the size of the set looked huge most of the time, and Hammerstien Ballroom with the crowd stacked vertically right on-top of the action looked great on TV too (as did the Manhattan center that RAW ran from early on). Impact Zone has fans spread kind of deep but they aren’t stacked that high and it just doesn’t come off good on TV.

    Maybe not full out Nationwide Touring but maybe do tour between a handful cities. Orlando, Atlanta, Philly, NYC, Nashville.

    IDK at the end of the day the Impact Zone will continue to work it just needs a new set, the current set is just to big & bright.

    I’d say doing 1 show a month outside the Impact Zone would be good enough start for now. See how that goes and then move on from there.

  14. Jessy says:

    BFG was a legit 3000, the 10$ tickets helped fill in the gaps. too soon to leave the impact zone, but a new stage and layout would be wise. House shows are a failure most of the time, mostly due to poor tour planning and hitting the same towns way to often in this economy.

  15. The Kayfabe Ninja says:

    @Fisha695,

    lol, You growing up on ECW sure makes me feel old!

  16. Fisha695 says:

    l0l I’m 24, I remember watching ECW un-censored/un-edited at like 2am Saturday mornings on some local channel out of Philly before they even got the TNN deal. Actually got in trouble once because I called the 900 number for the ECW Hotline and racked up a huge phone bill on my Grandmothers phone hahah
