    I had doubts it was truly gonna work. The results were months in advance spoiled and who in their right mind would want to pay for one off ppvs? Better to have shown them as specials on Spike TV and gain some of the money back than put it on ppv and not get any. Hell, why hasn’t TNA used any of Spike’s sister networks for revenue? There’s the MTVs, CMT, CBS, Comedy Central, etc. to work with. And if they did use CBS, they’d have 1 thing WWE doesn’t at the moment: Network television that doesn’t cost people without cable or satellite a dime.

    I’m not overly surprised, I’m a TNA fan, but the quality of those PPV’s has been horrific so far

    Trial and error is one thing but TNA REALLY NEEDS BETTER MANAGEMENT, time for Panda to move it or something and replace Mrs Dixie Carter and company.

    Hey Josh, last time I checked, NBC was free channel all over the USA. Maybe you should get a new set of rabbit ears for your black and white TV.
