#1 Posted on 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?

this is the second PPV that hasn't come in for some reason. Stupid Charter Communication. I wanted to see the two penis guys, too.
