— Last November (2011), the average attendance for a TNA live event was 975. This year it is only 581, a 40.4% drop overall. WWE also saw a big drop in attendance in 2012 going down from 5,429 to 4,786, a 12% drop overall.
— The two specials that TNA will be taping on 1/12 in Orlando, FL the day before the Genesis pay-per-view will be for international distribution. TNA still has contracts in place for monthly specials (pay-per-view events in North America) internationally and with cutting from 12 to 11 pay-per-view events so far in 2013, they have to fill these commitments. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
— As we noted earlier here on the website, Hulk Hogan was recently offered a big money deal by Multimedios in Mexico to take part in one wrestling match. Hogan turned down the offer saying there was “no way he would consider wrestling again.” This comes just a week after Hogan made comments where he said at 59 years old he wanted to be champion again in TNA. Is anyone really surprised by Hogan contradicting himself?!
