ok heres the thing, rumors going round saying dixie and crew want to take impact on the road every now and then, and its real easy, tna usually do 3 house shows in the same arena in deifferent venues, but every now and then they dont get a full house, so insted of doing that do 2 days of tv in a bigger arena nearby 3 towns they usually run and they will get a full house. another thing would be say when they do a ppv on the road find a smaller venue nearby to do to 2 days of tv tapings in after the ppv. plus i read somewhere that wrestlemania gets a full week of hype in a town but BFG only gets a weekend so say the have this years BFG in new york at madison square gardens (btw that would be awsome) have a live impact in the manhatton centre on the thursday then the fan axcess on friday and saturday, ppv on sunday the 2 tv tapings on monday and tuesday, its very easy and very logical because the impact zone is anoying and the fans that go there a god dam annoying.

The problem is that the guys love the light travel schedule because its less hectic for them.

BUT I do agree that being there in the Impact Barn Zone isn't good and need to spread the product more, even if its crappy Immortal.

touring aint as easy as u think...u gotta take camera crew the production truck.....and all this extre expenses that they dont have in the impact zone..also no other wrestling company can run msg bcuz vince owns stocks there and he doesnt allow it...so yeah...it looks easy but its actually really difficult

I would love to see it, but with all the veterans who like to work close to home its almost impossible. And I know a lot of the IWC could care less about the veterans and would let them go but it isn't going to happen.

BUT. If you had a second show, even if it started out as a one hour show, for talent willing to travel, basically the TNA originals.. You could do that to show off the future of the company to North America. It wouldn't have to be a different roster, because that would suck, storylines can still flourish and the veterans can still be selfish. The title holders and anyone in a fued not wanting to travel would only have to do so once a week fo the one taping. Then back to Orlando Studios they go. Really, it wouldn't be too too bad.

Wow can't believe that no one has ever come up with that idea before., I love TNA but no way on earth would the fill MSG or even half full iteven for BFG, Secondly, Money, TNA has none or very little, Thats why they aren't on the road, I would love to see them on the road but not going to happen this year atleast. and if they do it will be the same as going against raw on mondays, very short lived.

heres the annoying thing about tna touring theres this place in new york called the manhatton centre you may of heard of it (note the sarcasim) now when tna went to new york the went to a baseball park and drew 5,500 people it would make sence for tna to run the manhatton centre (which btw theyve filled) and do tapings not to mention you could make money buy selling tickets, make it the new main venue to have tv tapings insted of running the orlando barnhouse where you dont get a dime out of admision and draw families who dont watch wrestling and think its wwe and those god dam fucking hogan marks that you see every week and only care about themselfs and try to make the show about themselfs

Thats realistic and not a bad idea, Holding BFG is Crazy And having it based at the Manhattan Centre is not taking TNA on the road, its just moving the location, And as long as hogan is there who lives in Florida, TNA wont move.

Um, he's not making anything up regarding his back. I actually appreciate him for showing up at BFG, he didn't have to do that, that's dedication to a very important part of a storyline, Jeff Hardy needed him there for that.

His back is fucked man, thats kind of naive to be saying.

Even I noticed the same guy. And I don't watch TNA weekly.
I really appreciate that Hogan showed up at BFG 4 days after he had back surgery. Now thats no easy task and takes alot of willingness. He kept on showing up from there on out. Now if he did that because he wanted to be on tv, and the spotlight to be on him, then hes a selfish old man, that should call it quits. His time in the sun is over. Hes contributed alot to professional wrestling, but now its time that the younger guys do so. I too wouldn't mind Hogan in a backstage position, maybe training the younger guys, but not doing anything in creative.

Even if Hogan showed up at BFG out of selfishness, he had to be there or we would really be complaining about mangled storylines right now.

Even after the PPV when he was on TV, he looked ill. He didn't look at all like he should be there. Now it would be nice to see Hulk Hogan on TV again, but come 2012, when this is all supposed to be over, then he can retire and stay backstage. Or at home, and I don't mean that as against him, he really is getting old and worn out, he should go enjoy the rest of his life.

TNA really need their own venue for money reasons. At the moment they are based in the IMPACT! Zone which is part of universal studios, therefore to get into the audience all you have to do is buy a ticket for universal studios. This results in TNA only getting a share of the gate receipts. Whereas if they got their own venue they could claim 100% of the takings. Also more takings equals more money, so the talent could be better paid and be more willing to travel as a result, and they could maybe afford a production truck.

Yeah it seems that TNA get the same amount of money every week, from holding their Impact tapings at the Impact Zone. Sure they still make a profit, but they should be thinking about how they can make even more money, to enjoy some of it too. I heard some of the TNA roster(male) make $1000 a week. Thats not much, since they have to pay for their own accommodation and expenses. They should have money to spend on things they like too, entertainment and vacations and shit. To get that, TNAs got to start making changes in their venue, and take their shows on the road.

Iron Ape
01-09-2011, 07:12 PM
Some of you are completely over-simplifying this "take it on the road" business. In this economy, it would be next to impossible for a niche wrestling company to travel the country, producing wrestling programming, and not only recoup their costs, but also make a profit. I don't think some of you have any kind of realistic grasp at the expenses that would be involved in doing that. And this is all ignoring the fact that professional wrestling is a declining industry, and the chances of a minor league company coming along and creating a new audience are almost nonexistent.

And that makes even less sense; you're not going far enough away to truly tap into a new audience, but you're still going far enough away to increase your overhead exponentially.

If it was easy and profitable to travel more, TNA would have done it already. As someone said, wrestling is currently a declining industry. The WWE has cancelled shows due to lack of ticket sales, and that is with far more exposure than TNA. Granted, TNA would be playing smaller venues, but smaller venues isn't going to cover their overhead. They aren't going to get the major talent to make more than the occasional appearance at these road shows. They already have to take people like Flair and Hogan off the air because their number of appearances is limited in their contracts. Also, ticket sales are only a part of the profits to be had from road shows. There's merchandise sales, which TNA has always struggled with. Part of this is that kids are the driving force behind the bulk of WWE's merch sales, but TNA is not a kid-friendly product. This is the niche they've intentionally gone for. They don't have the kid friendly wrestlers driving the merch sales like the WWE does. Say what you will about John Cena and Rey Mysterio Jr.; they move an awful lot of merchandise sales for the WWE, because the younger fans love them.

Thats so true. I like TNA for the fact that it tried to sway away from the WWE, by going back to hardcore wrestling that fans loved in ECW, and the WWE Attitude Era.

Actually Wrestle-mania get 3 to 5 days of hype..... with Wednesday and Thursday being Travel and media days..... Thursday- Saturday WWE has Fan Axxess....
But as is said i have seen there are costs..... the production trucks and rental cars and etc....
I'm sure as TNA evaulated the number from their 1st arena Impact, they will take Impact on the road more esp. if it made a profit.... maybe even live?????
