Other groups would pick up the in-between and there would be several companies (my money would be on Chikara being the biggest beneficiary of a WWE collapse as they have the most "family friendly" content that can still apply to die-hard wrestling fans) that would get local TV such as WCCW had here in the south, but the two majors (ROH and TNA) would be considered the places you'd want a contract with due to their secured TV deals.

Had it not been for the resurgence of the Indies and the pushes of pure wrestlers like Angle, Guerrero, Benoit, Jericho, these fans might have ruined Pro Wrestling for me as a whole.) Those that would stick around wouldn't have the loyalty that those who have been with TNA for years have, hence they would be easier to lose by a bad angle, or pathetically produced PPV.
