Is TNA Set To Challenge WWE For Wrestling Supremacy?

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, or TNA as it is known to most, is a private wrestling company that has lived in the shadow of WWE for some time. It’s no surprise that when ‘wrestling’ is mentioned, people automatically think of the massively superior WWE.

However, is all that about to change?

By Ryan Flynn – @RyRyFlynn

WWE’s once-loyal fans are beginning to turning against them and whether this is a result of the company’s terrible booking or their blatant inability to put the fans first, it’s a very worrying trend.

This feeling of discontent was made clear on various social networking sites during Sunday night’s Royal Rumble match. If you missed it, the internet basically exploded with outraged WWE fans.

Seemingly from the moment Batista eliminated Roman Reigns to win the match, fans appeared incensed before turning on The Authority and calling for the involvement of fan favourite, Daniel Bryan.

One look at the match-card for the Royal Rumble would tell viewers we have now entered the reign of Triple H. He calls the shots and fan’s opinions mean less than they ever have.

Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels as special guests, New Age Outlaws winning the Tag Team Championship, Orton beating Cena in his Championship match and Batista dominating the Rumble. I personally am not looking forward to the age off Triple H.

Reports are also circulating that CM Punk has quit WWE (just as I suspected in a previous post). Punk is reportedly set to join TNA and what a ratings boost that would be for the company.

And last but not least, TNA is finally going global.

TNA for a long time has been based in the same arena week after week, but now they’re going on tour, with a taping of the show set to take place next month at the Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland.

It’s rumoured that TNA will do more live events in Europe and this is certainly one way to boost their appeal and overall revenue in competition with WWE.

TNA may be in the shadow of WWE at the moment, but watch this space, TNA could soon be a major rival.
