From Mike Tenay's "Ask The Professor" column on NWA-TNA.com:

ROM: ROY ASHING (HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS)
Hey Professor, I remember you from the WCW days. When is TNA coming to my town so I can see you guys large and in charge?

ANSWER: It looks like TNA will hit the road for live non-televised events later this year. Keep reading tnawrestling.com for more information!

I think for TNA fans this is great news. I hope they head towards the D.C./VA direction. Might be fun to see the 6 sided ring and X-Division in person.

This could really be a step in the right direction for TNA. I was a little skeptical about the 6-sided ring at first, but seeing it live made me change my mind. It's definitely cool, and IMO, caters more to the X division guys.

Now if Jarrett would drop the title (preferably to Raven) ...

Is the 6-sided ring that big of a difference-maker? I really don't see how it changes things so much, so I'd appreciate someone explaining the advantages to it, which couldn't be performed in a 4-sided ring.

It's VERY difficult for any promotion, WWE included, to draw good houses with non-televised events. I wish TNA the best of luck, but I suspect the worst. However, TNA has proved me wrong many times before, so...



The answer to WWE's financial problems...

Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.

Every now & then, we hear about Ted Turner claiming to do something wrestling oriented again ... why doesn't he just invest in TNA? ... That could be the win/win situation that's needed.

Because Ted wants his own shit. I know I live in Atlanta...everything's been "Tedinized."

Anywho...back to TNA. I don't see them doing more than a couple house shows. How much money are these guys losing? Getting that sweet primetime slot on FX would help a lot, but I really don't see them becoming big (at least not for years). Personally, I wished they would have just stuck with the four-sided ring. But then again, who knows...maybe it'll be a big draw.

I think house shows could be a huge boon for TNA. Think about it this way...if you've never seen the product before but are curious, are you more likely to spend $10 to watch them on TV or $20 to watch them in person?

Their best bet IMO is to run some bigger, traditionally strong markets and see what they can do. ECW made itself a national fixture drawing 1000 people in Philadelphia and New York. TNA's gotta be able to do the same in more influential markets than Nashville if they're going to improve their stock across the country (or even into Canada).



The beatings will continue until morale improves.

disappointed that Hero didn't make the Rumble tournament. Pac was great the few times I saw him in Chikara. He had a super match with Claudio.
