    I just feel awful for the talent.
    The major awkwardness they have have to go trough now is just crazy.

  • Chris

    Ladies and Gentlemen, from a high schooI gym near you, I proudly present TNA wrestling! *one person clap*

  • Jeremy-County Roberts

    You can’t even make fun of TNA anymore. I just feel bad. It feels so wrong. The only bright side of this whole thing is that finding a good parking spot was hella easy tonight.

    I feel bad for the talented guys in TNA who have to put up with this completely inept management.. Why in the blue hell are they booking venues like this. They must have known weeks ago that they were only going to fill 8% of the arena. Why not move the show to a high school or a bingo hall or a community center of something?

    • pwnez

      TNA probably realized that they would have lost money by moving the event to a different location; in the state TNA is in they are in no condition to be losing (more) money. Usually you have to pay the venue up front and by canceling an event you wouldn’t get your money back. You may get some money back but if you do it would not be a lot.

      Also, i’m sure TNA officials had high hopes of drawing more people. No one goes into business thinking “Yeah, this is going to be a complete disaster,” lol.

    • Kjhaltz

      They didn’t even fill up the high school gym though.

  • Marshall Mathers

    just die plz tna

    • ballz

      never wish death upon anyone please. not lol

      • Nicholas Parmigiani

        Tna is not a person its a company, now go die!!!!

  • pwnez

    ROH draws more fans than this.

    • Jeremy-County Roberts

      the sescoops chat room every Monday draws more fans than this.

      • Mr_DJ

        bahahahahaha!

      • brad

        Sadly I think that you’re right.

    • skywolf

      Heck OVW drew more fans than this

  • Jones CJ

    This is not funny. You’re talking about someone’s dream and livelihood being crushed everday with this TNA is this, TNA is that. For many this is all they have.

  • Bodacious Bob

    If Sting comes back to this TNA then he’s delusional.

  • SWa

    I’m just… at a lost for words. I never make fun of TNA no matter how bad they are/were, because they do have many talented people, but this is just very disheartening to see. I really wish they can get back on their feet soon, for the sake of everyone involved, including the inept management. It’s never fun to see a promotion not thriving when you know they have many potential wrestlers.

  • Aaron Clarke

    lol small companies here in Australia with wrestlers no body has ever heard of draw bigger crowds on the pub and club scene.

  • superturbo

    This is just heartbreaking for any real fan of wrestling to see! TNA’s gone from an incredible alternative to WWE, to this now? (*shakes head saying no*).

    • Jeremy

      TNA was never an incredible alternative to WWE.

      • BasedWorld

        Actually it was especially when WWE went the whole pg era route and the WWE content are not any better than theirs now.

  • bri

    what indy is this photo of?

  • Jack
  • King J aka “Kermit”

    In the near but distant future…………… ( Dragon Ball Z Voice)

    • Vince McMahon

      i approve

  • Mr_DJ

    One wonders how much money they’re hemorrhaging when their shows are producing numbers like this. I’ll be generous and say that’s maybe 100 people.

  • Progressed_Now

    Jesus fuucken Christ, Halftime Heat had more attendance than this.

    • scott preller

      lmfao! that was good

  • Maddox Tanrien

    Dixie should do the honorable thing and sell TNA to Vince coz they will not survive 2014 Ted Turner did the same thing and in the end he tucked his tail between his legs sold up

    • Brent Genito

      WCW was sold to Vince without the approval of Ted Turner.

      • 7962

        Correct. Ted was out of the business after the AOL/TimeWarner deal. Which is what killed WCW. If Ted had kept ownership, it may have continued running.

  • hardmetal1

    They can’t even fill a gym.

  • reezy

    is anyone else annoyed by the damn security check on this site?

    • BasedWorld

      What security check?

  • $42863687

    I feel bad for making fun of TNA now…

    • LifeLongWWEFan

      This is what they get for thinking they were on the same level as WWE.

  • johncena_penis

    Next stop, 7/11 magnus vs. Apu for the tna world heavyweight championship. Loser mops the floor.

  • Kjhaltz

    How much are shows?

    • bambam

      free

      • Kjhaltz

        The house shows that aren’t impact are free? Now wonder they’re loosing money?

        • bambam

          yup!! I think front row was $15 and you can buy them at a pizza shop

  • Tazz

    Tna is a dying breed. Wwe network could be the final nail in the coffin.

    Tna is old, and copies anything from other companies that worked

  • scott preller

    thats just sad

  • LifeLongWWEFan

    That is just depressing. I can’t imagine what the Talent is thinking seeing that.

  • CONSUELA

    small mexican wrestling companies draw more than this, ouch

  • Wrestling chick

    That’s alright, they did what they had to do, close up seats, the jokes are old about attendance

  • https://twitter.com/MyNational88 NWO4Life

    We as the IWC & those of the YWC should band together and buy TNA. We could make it bigger than, if not, as big as WWE if executed right under our control.

    WHO’S WITH ME!?!?

  • lou

    poor bastards. ROH has bigger crowds, great job Dixie.

  • captaindaddy72

    Man poor TNA

  • Evelyn L. Ford

    This is so sad; however, did any of y’all check out the photo of the attendance of WWE’s live event at the link on this page? Totally devastating!

  • superturbo

    TNA wasn’t so good 2 years ago, but it had much larger crowds than this when they still had to darken the top parts of an arena in Orlando Universal Studios.

    TNA ought to work along side Ring Of Honor and have cross promotional events to create some sort of hype to put on matches with one another. Keep Dixie off of TV, hire not fire talent (TNA doesn’t work and is dying because it has less than a dozen wrestlers on its roster now) and have a proper TNA World Champion who wins his matches without outside interference i.e. drop the title from Magnus and give it to Austin Aries who would reign supreme again and could do the unthinkable, hold both the X-Division and TNA World Championship title simultaneously.

  • ballz

    maybe this like a new way to promote friendly television, pg if you may kinda like have the kids count in a row how many people they see, or how many different words you can spell with tna. there is a idea for more heads.

  • roy wally

    Wrestling at my local Glendale Az swapmart on Sundays gets a bigger turn out than this.
