TNA coming to the big screen again?

Dixie Carter just won’t learn. After carrying one PPV, Bound For Glory, in movie theatres they are at it again with this year’s edition of Lockdown. For those of you, like myself, who had no idea Bound For Glory was in movie theatres, this is your opportunity to see TNA in the big screen just as god intended.

Yes you can go watch Christopher Daniels, Robbie E, Kidd Kash, Abyss, Crimson (the bad one), Eric Young and a cast of hundreds all from the comfort of a movie theatre seat. Screenvision has partnered with TNA and if you aren’t familiar with them it is due to the fact they are not Fathom Events to bring the event to movie theatres nationwide. So a second rate wrestling company hooked up with the number two movie event producers to bring us this goodness.

What a colossal waste of cash. UFC tried the 3D movie theatre experience to middling attention. If UFC cannot pull it off what makes anyone, anyone involved in TNA or Impact Wrestling think this is a logical idea to get the name brand out there? Can someone, anyone remove control of this company from this woman? If not someone needs to smack the bad ideas out of her loose-leaf notebook and mutter “Leave the decisions to the men toots” and carry on losing money without her input. See what I did there?

Really though why bother? TNA ratings have shown no real movement for years. There have been no sustainable gains in viewership nor an increase in PPV buys. So why bother? God damn why bother? This is a waste of time, money and talent. I guess that encompasses TNA perfectly actually. - Jeremy

WrestleMania 27 In 3D?

If you read anything on this site it is usually tinged with heavy sarcasm but this is not one of those posts. According to Prowrestling.net, WWE is entertaining the possibility of putting WrestleMania 27 in move theatres in 3D. This is possibly the best idea WWE has had since the original idea of WrestleMania. The large screen format totally suits WWE’s product and the enhancement of 3D viewing is ridiculously wonderful. 3D will give the PPV the proper scope that the live audience gets. After sitting at the top of the Citrus Bowl and the far flung end of the floor in Ford Field the idea that you may actually get this perspective in the comfort of leather bound seats or if you are poor, the stanky old turquoise mesh seats with crusty cup holders, is enticing. If we aren’t already going to the event live this is where I would be with bells on.

It also allows a movie going audience the opportunity to feel as if they are part of it. This is a sensation you just don’t get from a 21” shitty model television connected to a vcr. This could be an immersive experience that could enhance WWE’s business. If this is successful you have to believe they may open up to the idea of having Summerslam or another of the bigger PPV’s on the big screen. WWE needs to make this happen. Fathom broadcasts the opera and other boring shit like that so why not wrestling? -Jeremy
