Will WWE Fans Ever Switch Sides and Start Watching TNA?

The Jaden SmallingsContributor IMarch 10, 2010

As you all must know by now, TNA did lose the ratings war on Monday with a 1.0 rating despite the appearances of ex-WWE superstars like Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam.

While WWE won with a 3.6 rating and that too with showcasing the same old stuff we see every Monday, nothing really mind-blowing.

Now you have to wonder, in the past three months, we have seen the debuts of former main eventers like Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Mr.Anderson, and Rob Van Dam.

If they didn't draw ratings for TNA, then who or what will?

Which brings to mind that it's because of WWE that TNA got such terrible ratings.

Directly or indirectly, TNA obviously did attempt to steal ratings from WWE on Monday.

Did it work?



Simple, most WWE fans will always remain loyal to WWE.

Which brings up a really interesting topic.

Will wrestling fans ever stop watching WWE?

Now WWE's flagship show, Monday night Raw has been airing since 1993.

TNA's flagship show, Impact has been airing since 2004.

Throughout the years, we have seen many horrible decisions by the WWE creative team, yet every Raw, fans still tune in.

I'm not only talking about Raw here, I'm talking about the company as a whole.

WWE obviously has a much stronger fan base then TNA, and I for one, as a huge WWE fanatic wouldn't stop watching WWE no matter what they do.

WWE fans will whine and complain all they want but at the end of the day, they will still continue to follow WWE.

Don't believe me?

For the past year or so, WWE has made numerous pay-per-view name changes,

They made many pay-per-views themed, pay-per-views like TLC and Breaking Point.

Last but not least, WWE has turned the entire company PG, which basically means no more swearing, cursing, and explicit material.

Basically, things many wrestling fans crave for.

We've seen many fans complain in the past about the issues I listed above, but does that mean we're going to start following TNA instead?

Hell no.

TNA, I'm sorry to say, but most WWE fans would never switch to watching TNA unless Hornswoggle becomes WWE champion or something, but that's besides the point.
