The baseball stadium idea gets you a free venue with a built in audience. It's a smart play for that reason. The problem is the aforementioned small crowd. You can, of course, blame the baseball team for that if asked about it. Cheaper than running armories or small venues for that reason.
I think they have a small chance, based on low overhead. Also, they're taping a "season" of their show in Vegas, which should help them land a TV deal, as their product is already taped. Like ROH on Destination America, there is less cost for the network.

I thought about going to that Ohio show but it was like a 3 hour drive to the middle of nowhere. They should have done it in Akron or Dayton. They picked a really stupid location.

I agree on the TNA stink too. I think Jarrett was smart in how he was positioning himself to pick over the bones once TNA dies later this year but he should have kept it off air. The second he appeared on TV and they started talking invasion angles is when he made a mistake. Guys like Magnus, Young and Roode made the cards look a lot better and I think James Storm would be a key block to build a promotion on. But the more entangled he gets with TNA the less people will give it a chance.

I hear he's trying to get TNA's slot after they go off the air. I think that wouldn't be the worst move ever.

Colt Cabana vs. Damien Sandow announced for a show next month. That's legit the first match they've had that I would consider paying to see.

I honestly thought GFW was already dead and buried. Jarrett is the Southern John Cena. He never gives up, either. Minus 99% of Cena's success rate, of course.

No, they're running seasonally. I'm surprised they're still kicking as well. I guess it's good for them because they're about to get a talent infusion.

I was expecting that was the end game for them as soon as Dixie got TNA booted from Spike.
