The only other circuit out there with any TV contract is NWA: TNA(Total Nonstop Action). They have a decent roster of wrestlers including some transplanted WWE guys like Kurt Angle, the Hardy brothers, the Dudley boys, Mick Foley, Jeff Jarrett, and so on. If I recall correctly their big hangup is that they tape their main show from the same arena down in Florida so they don't get the widespread live crowd like WWE. I don't think they are anywhere in the same catagorie as what WCW was in the day. I think one of wrestling's biggest problem over the last few years is not only the lack of "wrestling" competition, but also I think they lost a lot of viewers to the real thing in MMA.
Ted Turner keeps talking like he wants to get back in the game, but so far it's just talk.
TNA is pretty regional and plays smaller venues.
Both companies are in bad shape but Vince has the upper hand being on USA as opposed to Spike.
Disagree. The best WWE bit was when the Undertaker was going to marry Stephanie McMahon. Vince begs the Rock and Stone Cold to help, both initially say no. Then when it is going down the Rock runs out and Rock Bottom's a bunch of the Undertaker's acolytes. He eventually gets beat up though by about 10 guys. Then Stone Cold comes out and drops about 30 Stone Cold Stunners in a row and saves Stephanie. I remember my roommates and I jumping up and down and yelling like we were at Jack Trice.
