Update on TNA For Sale Rumors, Early Estimate on BFG Buys, More

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Bound-for-Glory

- The actual paid attendance for TNA Bound For Glory was 2,622 but there were 3,000 fans in the building so TNA didn’t paper that much. TNA officials are taking this as a positive. When WWE ran a live event in San Diego this past August, there were almost 4,000 in the building but only 2,358 paid.

- According to various cable industry sources, Bound For Glory looks to have been down about 15% from last year, which would indicate around 17,000 buys.

- There are a lot of stories going around about TNA being for sale but there are indeed serious talks going on behind the scenes. There is a potential buyer that has been looking at the company. Representatives for the potential new owners have been at TNA’s offices recently. Talk of a potential sale has been going on for months but has reached a serious enough point where things are at a significant stage.

  • Just havin fun.

    2600 paid customers for a PPV event, and they’re happy? If WWE ran a PPV there, instead of just a house show, they would draw AT LEAST 5 times that.

    • Ernie Marin

      but remember TNA doesn’t use convention centers or big arenas, TNA at best uses small venues that can support maybe 5 or 6 thousand people in a good day.

      • Just havin fun.

        Yes, because they can’t draw crowds big enough to fill the larger places.
