I don’t have access to their accounts; but I do know that while US audiences have been critical of the product recently, they still have a hugely loyal UK fan base, evidenced by their expansion of their 2014 tour over here.
I also know that the British Boot Camp at the start of this year created huge interest in TNA and the four contenders.
And I know that Ring-Ka-King was critically acclaimed and popular with fans worldwide, who managed to watch it despite it not being aired in their country.
So – is it time for TNA to try working as a UK-based promotion?
Perhaps a slightly tongue-in-cheek suggestion, you might think, but it’s something that several TNA stars have hinted at – not least Samoa Joe, who’s mentioned in interviews how much he enjoys working in front of British crowds and how he thought the Ring-Ka-King format could easily transfer for a British market.
So why not?
Friend of TOWIS Magnus is right at the top of the company at the moment, and with his high TV profile over here (thanks to his history as a Gladiator and his current presenting work) he’d find it easy to be TNA’s face.
Rockstar Spud and the Blossom Twins are loitering in OVW, TNA’s development territory – are they ready to be shunted up to the big stage yet? Surely they are. They all know how to work a camera, and they’re all good in the ring.
And, of course, if TNA did come to the UK on a longer-term basis, maybe they can mend bridges with the departed Doug Williams and we can get him back on television where he should be.
What do you think?
