Stay on Thursdays and keep building that up if they can.

Why not stay at the Impact Zone for a WCW Worldwide type show and also expand to a weekly arena show at, oh I don’t know, 9pm – 11pm EST on Monday nights? That really is the next step, with the realization that TNA would not legitimately threaten WWE for at least 5 years or so.

Maybe Impact should stay overseas for long chunks at a time since that’s where they have them most fans at the moment.

Even though they don’t get gate money, they aren’t losing nearly as much is if they went around the US week to week and drew 900-1100 fans. There are so many facets when it comes to spending that we don’t realize when you take a show on the road on a consist basis.

I just don’t like the Impact Zone for anything, but I see your point about guaranteed audience.

Dixie won’t want to leave the place, but she didn’t want to leave “The Asylum” either…

I think they should do the PPVs from legit arenas & stick with the “Zone” for TV in order to have a guaranteed crowd (even if a lot of them are plants), at least for the time being.
