|...so are you gonna watch it? I figure I might as well give it a chance, but there's no way I'm getting it every week, especially if half the time, it's not even live. I maybe buy a live show once or twice a month(depending on how good it is) but I don't think I'll be waisting money on the taped shows. Anyone else planning on getting it?|

|I personally will. I am actually looking forward to it. |
Who knows, maybe they can pull a decent wrestling show
off. Doubtful but hey, you never know.

|I'm definitely getting the first show, and I plan on reading the results for the next show and judging my purchase of the second week on that.|
By the way though, once they get to Nashville in July, they will be having live shows every week, so the live/taped issue will become a non-issue.
Because the Royal Rumble match has always been my favorite gimmick match, I am psyched for the "Gauntlet for the Gold" and of course the women will be there. Daffney and now Indy hottie Alexis Laree will be involved, so I am ready.
It might suck, but I will reserve judgement until the show ends. Good luck Jeff.
Prediction- Ken Shamrock is your first NWA:TNA champion.

|I don't know... if I get hooked on this, it'd be $40 a month to keep up... $4.95 a week seems more like what I'd be willing to pay... of course, I have Cablevision- I just checked, and it's not available to me at all. Weird, I saw a commercial for it last night on MTV. First they tell me digital isn't an option in my area, now this... at least I get UPN here (Syracuse, I'm looking in your direction).|

|I might give it a shot in a month or two. It is hard for me to buy something on Wednesday nights because my work schedule. Sunday nights when there is no WWE PPV would be better.|

|Highly unlikely. I don't like to pay for stuff, and I'm not going to blow $5 AND a Wednesday night I could spend playing Morrowind on a fledgling wrestling promotion. I'll wait a few weeks, and if I hear good about it, then I might give it a shot. |

|I'm looking forward to it. Something different, ya know? The worse thing that happens is I don't like it, and I don't purchase another installment, right?|
They've got a few guys worth checking out..and since there has already been a prediction on here for the first NWA:TNA champion, mine as well throw my hat into the fire:
First NWA:TNA champ: Steve Corino - why not? Ok, so I just like Corino, sue me!

|I guess the Jarretts have inadvertently lost one viewer. I planned to get it just for the train-wreck-fascination value but it's not playing on Dish Network, so I'm screwed.|
Oh well. I guess I'll go to one of the live events (they're just as cheap).

|I'll weigh the pros and cons:|
GOOD THING: AJ Styles, Jerry Lynn, Low-Ki vs Jorge Estrada, Sonny Siaki, Jimmy Yang... IF they let them do what they're capable of and give them enough time to work
BAD THING: The qualifier above isn't a given
GOOD THING: Lingerie battle royal with ten "divas"
BAD THING: One of them is Francine
GOOD THING: York & Matthews vs. The Dupps might not suck
BAD THING: Exactly thirteen of us remember the Dupps
GOOD THING: Hardcore midgets on a rampage
BAD THING: What bad thing? MIDGETS == RATINGS.
GOOD THING: Dick & Rod Johnson make their debut
BAD THING: That I'm goofy enough to consider that a good thing (c'mon, it could be cheesy enough to be funny once)
BAD THING: Country music and NASCAR guest stars
GOOD THING: The remote possibility that someone'll sic the hardcore midgets on them
GOOD THING: Devon Storm and Norman Smiley are in the house
BAD THING: As cannon-fodder for the main event
BAD THING: Konnan will be wrestling
GOOD THING: Without his music video
BAD THING: I'll betcha that his balls are still too big, requiring ritualistic shorts-shaking
GOOD THING: The remote possibility that a chunk of the roof could collapse and fall on him while he has Bagwell in a headlock
GOOD THING: DON WEST~! on commentary
BAD THING: Your PPV fee does _not_ include a McGwire rookie card
GOOD THING: Ricky Steamboat and other retired veterans give the evening a touch of class
BAD THING: ...which will probably be immediately followed by two guys wrestling in penis costumes
BAD THING: Hey! Rick Steiner!
GOOD THING: He exhales carbon dioxide, which is needed by plants
GOOD THING: It's only ten bucks
BAD THING: That and ten more will get me Frequency for PS2
SUM TOTAL: It's a train wreck waiting to happen. But at ten bucks, why not?

Cablevision? Aren't they the ones whose customers had a shitfit once they heard they couldn't get YES? And now Cox (out cable company) got hammered for an hour on a call-in show because we have to pay $2/month more for YES, but we lose MSG (and we STILL don't have NESN, which pisses me off to no end)?
But to get back on topic, no, I won't. Haven't bought a PPV in my life, the people who did buy them stopped watching long ago, and the last live event I saw was WM11. Yeah, I'm a delinquent fan.

|Just placed my order for the first show. I figure if it really blows, it'll just make me appreciate WWE that much more. Besides, it's live; who knows who might show up?|
