WWE Hall of Famer and former color commentator Jim Ross recently gave his take on last week’s TNA Sacrifice pay per view:
TNA had a PPV a week ago where the smaller crowd in a sound stage was embarrassingly quiet and provided little to no motivation for the talents some of which had excellent bouts. TNA is in an especially precarious position as they are in the closing months of their TV rights deal with Spike and have zero momentum or leverage with which to negotiate. Trying to save money by having the TV’s in the same venue more often than not in Orlando is the kiss of death. If the crowds that attend IMPACT events there don’t react to what they saw on the loaded, PPV card then they are unlikely to ‘pop’ for much of any thing. That makes the TV show sound uninspired and not ‘must see’ TV. It’s a good thing that Impact is going to do some of their tapings outside the Orlando sound stage going forward as that scenario is one designed for failure.
I am all for Impact and all wrestling companies for that matter to succeed because he more places that talents, crew, etc have to work the better it is for the overall business.
I totally agree with JR, they were dead, but can you seriously blame them? TNA has let a lot of very talented guys go, they have some talented guys left on the roster and they work their tails off, but creative is not there at all. Yes it was not a very good show, but the fans have to be giving energy to the show.
