TNA wants to tape 4 to 6 weeks of shows at once

in the Impact Zone


I seem to remember some other wrestling promotion taping over a month of TV at a time in Florida in the early 90's trying to save money. 

That sure worked out great for that company, so I'm sure it will do even better now that there are even easier ways to find out spoiler results for shows.  

Dude, you gotta stop sending me these shitty c&p site "news" stories.  I have an Observer subscription and Dave talks about this stuff in much more detail and with actual credibility.
TNA is trying to get into either the Impact Zone again, or a venue in Vegas, and they're actually leaning towards Vegas because they can possibly make some money off tourists there, although getting talent in and out for tapings might be a big holdup with that. Taping on the road is costing them tons of money for absolutely no benefit, and although I don't blame them for making a go of it, they really should have done some due diligence before making that kind of investment without a backup plan.  But they were dying at the Impact Zone and SOMETHING had to be done.  If they can survive doing 6 weeks of TV at a time to save money, good on them.  No one gives a shit about taped v. live TV anyway and only a small percentage of internet nerds even care about spoilers for those shows.  NXT is taped weeks in advance and I don't pay the least bit of attention to the tapings, so it's all new to me when I watch anyway.
