WWE with no hesitation at all, it is already the most watched wrestling company in the world and its name alone sells it to people, TNA has a huge way to go and massive obsticles in its way to get to the level that WWE is currently at

 

10 years is not enough time to overtake WWE simple as that really

In all fairness alot can happen in 10 years. 10 years ago the most watched was WCW (at some points) 10 years before that WCW didn't even exist(or was only just about to). So since i'm probably not gonna be on here in 10 years so won't ever get to say "told you so" i'm gonna choose ROH (even though it'll most likely have gone bankrupt long before that)

WWE without a doubt. They are a massive distance from any other promotion at the moment, the WWE will likely keep consistent and no-one will be able to catch up. TNA probably have a chance if they get stuff into gear, however in 10 years it could be the end aswell.

No it really isn't

 

WWE is simply too well established now for TNA or ROH to overtake it no matter what happens in the next 10 years, WWE has had its own way for the last 7-8 years and used that time extreamly well in making sure that it is well placed to survive pretty much anything that could happen

 

If TNA did start to challenge them or any other company for that matter started to then WWE has such vast resources that it would simply use that might to buy them out or crush them before they got too big

And what if a company thats fastly gaining on WWE refuses to be bought out? How exactly does WWE's resources crush them?

 

if WCW can start up and become the number 1 promotion all in a 10 year span then i don't see what's stopping any other company from doing the same.

Here Here....

 

Because no matter, how much TNA grows in the next decade, you would think with all past experience, WWE would have equal growth. Especially if you followed current trends

They would do what WCW did and take the best talent

 

No company will do what WCW did simply because there isn't enough draws out there to do it these days, WCW got so big by signing Hogan, Flair, Hall & Nash, Macho Man etc and adding them to their own talent of Goldberg, Sting etc. All these people were draws where as today there isn't any huge draws to bring in and build a company on

 

WWE is like I said too big when WCW was starting out WWF was no where near as powerful as it is now same as when WWF was first started there was no company that dominated the whole ladscape of wrestling in the way that WWE does in this day and age, the obsticles for any company that is starting out to takeover from WWE now are just too great to overcome

Im sorry, but are you seriously trying to suggest that TNA is anywhere near close to competing with WWE?

 

WWE has more television markets, which with the increased revenue, means they will always be ahead of TNA in talent they can aquire, production, venues they can access, merchandise theyc an produce to the masses

 

Once again to quote NE who has said it perfectly

People need to stop the comparisons to WCW when it comes to TNA, ROH or anybody else.

 

WCW could ONLY compete because of the following reasons:

 

1. The sheer amount of money Ted Turner was willing to put into it.

2. A large roster full of nationally established stars.

3. The amount of TV time allotted to them.

 

TNA doesnt have the money, stars or TV exposure that WCW had. TNA isnt even CLOSE to what WCW was, so saying "Well WCW competed and took over!" is crazy, because TNA isnt WCW, its apples and oranges.

 

ROH isnt even on the radar, they will always be a diddly indy fed with crap production values and a small time look.

Thats just utter crap, In the past 2 years TNA's ratings are up about 20% while WWE's is down 10%. If WWE could grow fans so easily as you seem to think then i'm sure they would be doing.

 

If you look at the ratings WWE is slowly dying, each year its losing more and more of its viewers, and Smackdown change to a much worse network reflects that. They may be able to turn it around, but the fact that they haven't just proves that you can't buy fans.

 

I'm not saying TNA are likely or ROH. I was saying that WCW went from not even existing to being the top promotion in 10 years, what to stop another billionairres throwing money at a promotion that doesn't exist or backing one that does and it happening again.

 

At the moment WWE is miles above the rest, but if they continue to loose fans as fast as they have and other companies continue to grow at the rate they are then as it stands at the moment, WWE would no longer be the top company. Its not likely to happen but its possible, anything could happen in 10 years.

The WWF, from 1993 - 1996, (especially 1995) was drawing ratings of 1.8 - 2.2 on average, and less. The 3.5's or whatever they are doing now arent great, but they are still doing decent numbers and on top of that, Vince could shut down WWE as a pro wrestling promotion that runs and promotes live events and still turn over millions in annual profit off the tape library alone.

If you look at the ratings WWE is slowly dying,.
A "dying" WWE (which is still a billion dollar company) is still a much better prospect than any other wrestling company.

 

One point I would like to make about the ratings. They are down in the US, but WWE can support that with its worldwide revenue. No other company can even do a fraction of the business overseas that WWE can, and that is something that will most likely never change.

 

TNA's ratings did go up, but they are still less than half of RAW's on the same network.

 

Ten years ago, WCW's run on top was coming to an end. Three years later and it went out of business. That's the only statistic that matters when push comes to shove.

 

Wether it's a good thing or a bad thing is down to self-preference, but WWE has the money and the connections to stay on top of the wrestling industry for as long as it wants to.

Wrestling domestically is down no matter what company!! Plus the 20% gain in audience figures for TNA is way less than the 10% lost by the WWE in terms of audience figures anyway!!

 

The fact of the matter is the WWE is growing fans but on a global basis. This for one, is where your point on Networks fall's on its face.

 

Take what networks TNA and WWE are carried here in the UK, and you will see their is a vast difference in potential viewing figures....I would hazard a guess that Live Raw at 2am gains better ratings than impact in its prime slot...and this is repeated in every country where TNA and WWE is shown.

 

WWE in the last 18 months has added/strengthened markets in....

 

Germany, Italy, UK, Mexico, China (which is expected alone to pull in figures in 1 week, which the UK does in 6 months) Puerto Rico, Spain, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia.....

 

As my original point states, which you conviently missed, was that WWE has the money from such International television revenues, to strengthen and add new markets to export the WWE product. TNA is no where near this level of global exposure and money making potential, and wont be as long as the WWE is still around.....

Obviously WWE is on a better network than TNA, it's a much bigger company at the moment. But we're not talking at the moment we're talking 10 years from now.

 

For a start in 10 years from now Vince is going to be either dead or at the least retired.

 

There's no way you can possibly say for certain that there is no chance WWE won't be the number 1 company in 10 years.

Yes, and my point was, then why on earth arent they. What are they waiting for? If WWE could increase their ratings and their fanbase they would be doing, they wouldn't be losing fans each year.
