Introducing TNA new business model

Rate this Entry
With recent actives in TNA wrestling as of Late I would like to discuss how there Pay-Per-View schedule should look for the year of 2012 and beyond. You will notice that I have subtracted the Pay-Per-Views that generate the lowest buyrate in the year. TNA now have a revamped Pay-Per-View schedule with eight events per hear which is a way better schedule to work off of also I would like to address the Following WWE owns Sunday Nights and the UFC owns Saturday night Television Try to compete with that and you will fail which is why I think. TNA should Move there PPV's To Wednesday night still in the normal three hour format but now Bound For Glory and Slamiversity will be four hour Format's. The Fee per event will Be $20.00 dollars each or you can by a Year Pass for $80.00 dollars that will get you a entire year of TNA action for just
$80.00 dollars the events are as followed.

January 2nd, 2013 - Genesis - Madison Square Garden - Manhattan, New York
In wrestling foke lour it is said that you have not made it till you made it in the garden with that said I think with TNA new Business Model Madison Square Garden is a wise choice for TNA in there new skin. This will easily be a sellout.

Professional wrestling has such a Rich history with the state of Ohio and this very Arena here fans saw WWE owner Vince McMahon Purchase his own competitor World Championship Wrestling in the summer of 2001 also Wrestling Fans witnessed The Historic WWE Pay-Per-Veiw Invasion in 2001.

    Love the ideas and the format. 8 PPV's a year is awesome. But sell the year pass for $100. It's a cleaner number. And don't sweat the Sunday thing. UFC does their PPV's on Saturdays, but so does Boxing when they have them. There's plenty of room.

    You got some pretty big venues listed here. Before they can even comtemplate something like that, they need to create celebrities out of their wrestlers. For example, this Bound For Glory media blitz, needs to be handled by Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, James Storm, and AJ Styles. These guys are among the best in the biz, and nobody knows who they are. To draw people into MSG, or Wells Fargo Center (they would never do wrestling at Lincoln Financial Field), they need to get their top guys pushed into the main stream. They need to market them and spend money to get them known. Bobby Roode and James Storm, should be on Howard Stern today, not Hogan. They need to get these guys in front of a massive audience and let them shine a little.

    Also, to hold your PPV's in huge venues, they would need to bring in some celebrity talent to boost it. So, if they're in Wells Fargo for Slammiversary, somehow get some big time Philly athletes like Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Jimmy Rollins to be a part of the show. Get some big time musicians from the area to hold a pre-show concert of sorts. And do a cross-promotion with the Phillies or Sixers or something.

    Great ideas. Just, a WHOLE LOT of new business modeling and formatting would need to be done for them to even scratch the surface of it.

    you know, companies do have to pay to use arenas...

    its not like Dixie could walk into MSG and say, "hey guys, can we please use your arena for 3 hours on a weekend night?" and they say, "sure thing Dixie, no problem, this one is on the house"

    i do not think TnA has the money to rent ANY of these locations. and on top of that, only charging $20.00 per ppv?

    how would TnA make any money with your proposition? because you know, that is the point of business.

    also, what is the point in leasing 20k arenas when you cannot even draw 5k?

    i like the TnA product, i think it has great potential with some great talent, but this blog is just silly, sorry.
