      Does anyone know what the card was for this particular show? It’d be interesting to hear what wrestlers had to hang their head in shame and get demoralized over this

      • MikeP

        Sting, Bully Ray, Austin Aries, Chris Sabin, BroMans, Gail Kim, Madison Rayne, Abyss, Gunner, James Storm were there. There were between 500 to 600 there regardless of what anyone says. I was there and there’s no way there were more than that there. Pretty pitiful that even Sting can’t draw more than that. Just goes to show how dead TNA is now!!

        • LeoSlayer

          500-600 people REALLY??!!

    • Kyle Alford

      That’s bull, they sold out in McMinnville. I was there.

        Thanks for providing the card. I am blown away! The following wrestlers performed at a half-full, high school gym: Sting, Somoa Joe, Bully Ray, Magnus, Gail Kim, Austin Aries, etc. Can’t believe for the first match, the opening wrestler made his entrance from the merchandise table!!!

        • duh

          Sting performing in a half empty high school gym is beyond pathetic. man doesnt even really need the money at this point. he should have gone to WWe 5-6 years ago at least

    • Derp

      Have they really fallen this far? lol…

      They really need to move back to the Impact Zone or find an offer in Vegas.

      Dixie, just make Vince an offer. He’s a reasonable man. Do what’s best for business and let TNA die already. Those that are worthwhile will go on to the WWE midcard. Those that aren’t will return to their shitholes in the indies.

        and look what happen with wcw! now shut the fuck up!! and wish you grew up in the 90’s!!

        • hick

          I even grew up in the 80ies. This has nothing to do with WCW, besides that everything in the WCW except for Goldberg and the Cruiserweights was bullshit. I don’t think Vince would waste a single dollar on TNA. Who would they be interested in? Their AJ is a girl & WWE already gave styles a knock-back. TNA hasn’t got any drug policy, so nobody know show many if those guys are on painkillers or whatever. Angle, Hardy – here you got the no.1 picks for guys with drug issues. Sting? That chance went 5 years ago, the guy is 55 now. Madison Rayne would be a nice opponent AJ Lee, but that’s it. All the rest is either too old, has already been turned down by the WWE
          several times or isn’t any better than their mid- undercard- and
          NXT-talent. I don’t hate TNA, I rather see them as a tragedy. They were on a good course, then they put a couple of idiots with megalomania in charge that ran the company into the garbage dump it is right now.

          • Gonad-the-ballbarian

            Everything in WCW was bullshit except for their worst wrestler? Okay mark, that’s why they beat WWF in the ratings for over a year. That’s also why WWE can’t go 5 minutes without ripping off a WCW storyline, namely trying to rehash the NWO at every turn. Seriously, clueless fucktards like you are the reason that the wrestling industry is in such a fucked up state right now. Please, for the sake of the human gene pool, consider euthanasia you vapid cunt.

    • Ziggler sells better than TNA

      TNA should stick with being a territory wrestling company because thats what they are and aren’t ready for anything more.

    • Shockmaster

      I wish they’d stop (obviously) employing extras to sit in the front row and boo the heels and cheer the faces. That and the all-so-overused “fake crowd sound bytes”.

    • Vitorio

      Impact Live events were way more entertaining than WWE’s until Bryan @ Cesaro started touring. Young Bucks, Moror City Machine Guns, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Magnus, Nigel & Joe were 200% better live while WWE live worse than Raw.

    • Vitorio

      But still best Tag Team in Kazarian & Daniels, best Women’s Champ in Gail Kim. If you have Samoa Joe, Aries, Sabin & Ion performing; still well worth $40

    • JT

      If this is true that’s a sad number but I live in Vegas and the crowd was large there so it doesn’t say a lot to me about TNAs status as a whole.
