I can't see him buying it though, as he's got his own wrestling promotion in Chicago. I think the likely buyer might be Jeff Jarrett. He originally owned and was putting out a really good product, albeit in a smaller scale.
The only other company I can see maybe buying it is WWE, but really, why do they need it? They were never really at war with TNA, like they were with WCW. Also, I wonder if they need the talent on the roster?
this gag. Really, really great work.
Tons of expenses incurred by having Hogan, Bishoff and all their mates from the 90s in the company. Getting rid of Dutch Mantell (Zeb Colt or whatever he's called), when he had made some of the booking hald decent. Bringing in Vince Russo and his crash TV "omg austin used a beer truck on vince!" routines and refusing to try anything new.
I mean, why would anyone want to buy it? There's very little they do well atm (except the odd good match from Bubba Dudley, AJ Styles or Kurt Angle)
will struggle on somehow but with the roster depleted and hogan going back "home" to wwe (please, please don't let him wrestle) it's dreams of being a legit number 2 company in any sense other than the euphemistic are over. i'd like to see some money put behind roh. there again i'd like to see billy corgan fed to a comically hungry pack of wolves but there we are.
when there was Samoa Joe, Danielson, AJ, Aries, Roderick Strong, Briscoes at their best
AJ Styles is pretty much the only reason I still watch TNA these days. It's sad the way they've gone recently. A lot of people say TNA was already rubbish, but Hogan and Bischoff have really killed that company.
NXT is successfully becomming the 2nd company right under TNA's noes but the problem here is that it's owned by WWE so its truly turning into a monopoly.
I watched ROH TV over the weekend and the crowd was tiny. There's a lot to like about ROH, though.
I've seen a few from ROH live in UK indy shows and they're seriously good. Kevin Steen, Davey Richards and Michael Elgin are all very impressive. There's a lot of talk of the American Wolves heading to WWE, actually
seems to be a breeding ground really for people to then move up to the next level(WWE), rather than staying there and trying to make the company bigger. A lot of the popular stars in WWE, were darlings in ROH (CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, to a lesser extent El Generico)
at the hammerstein ballroom last spring a couple of days before mania last year and it was magnificent. i still hold out hope for them but yes, the glory days are over.
their roster is becoming fairly shallow, their iPPVs have been disaster after disaster and the production values in general make the show very difficult to watch. It's great for those able to see it live but I can't see ROH Pulling any sort of audience outside of the one it currently has and even then it feels like it's hemorrhaging fans.

no one over the age of about 13 has ever watched wrestling and even kids have better things to do nowadays.
and stop harping on about your darling 'kik', as you affectionately call him. You're obsessed with an attention-seeking, middle-aged man on the internet.

what do you want now?
TNA was actually pretty decent back in 06/07 when I watched a fair bit of that and WWE, i've watched bits over the past couple of years and it seems to have morphed into WCW 2.0. awful
ripped apart by Bischoff and Hogan. Good lord I really hate Eric Bischoff, the man has no grace and does not really care about the product he is putting out (just watch the end of WCW). Hogan, is trying to make money after the divorce left him with not so much cash. The more I find out about Hogan, the less there is to like there as well.
Wouldn't be surprised if TNA does better once it's sold.
he was the driving force during it's proper dreadful years... 2010/2011 were unbelievably bad
How could I forget
To read up on some of the things that was said during this is pretty awesome
WCW fluked the whole NWO angle, didn't they? Good as it was there was no genius behind it, it was just a couple of big names happening to be out of contract at a rival. People are somehow still living off that, despite the fact that it was only good for about two years.
* six months.
(though to be fair, it's my mate Farooq who likes the auld wrassling, not me).
its my mate Scotty 2 Hotty who likes it
There's a good book about the rise and fall of WCW, it's a great read.
absolute partridge. well worth a look.
the above more, but couldn't. That is quite literally the strangest/funniest thing I've ever seen Billy in.
