Quote TNA runs in Charlottesville, Virginia at the John Paul Jones Arena on February 11th with the following card:

* TNA champion AJ Styles vs. D'Angelo Dinero
* Kurt Angle & Beer Money, Inc. vs. Desmond Wolfe & The British Invasion
* The Beautiful People vs. TNA Knockouts Champion Tara & Angelina Love - Handicap Match
* Also scheduled: Jeff Jarrett, Daniels, Homicide, Lethal Consequences, Generation Me, Jesse Neal, and more

TNA runs in Norfolk, Virginia at the Constant Center on February 12th with the following card:

* TNA champion AJ Styles (with Ric Flair) vs. Kurt Angle
* The Beautiful People vs. TNA Knockouts Champion Tara & Angelina Love - Handicap Match
* D'Angelo Dinero vs. Daniels
*Lethal Consequences vs. Generation Me
* Also scheduled: Jeff Jarrett, Beer Money, Desmond Wolfe, Homicide, The British Invasion, Jesse Neal, and more

 
* Why is Flair only announced for one of the two house shows that weekend?
 
* With Naitch doing an house show that should mean he can miss a television taping in his deal unless he's been offered extra for house show dates.
 
* Pope in the main event is surely a sign of things to come.

I think Flair wouldve been offered more money to appear at the house show, so he is going ahead in doing it.

For added effect, imagine reading this if it was drawn in crayon.
 
 
Dear T.N.A.

-- TNA drew 1,200 fans this past Thursday to its live event in Charlottesville, Virginia. While the number is above what the company usually draws, the event was held in a 17,000 seat arena.

WTF were TNA thinking actually booking such a huge venue for the house show?
 
They surely lost money on the event and the atmosphere can't have been upto much.
 
Stateside for house shows they should be sticking to 5K venues at the very most.

There's an arena nearby that used to have WCW shows every 4-6 months.  WCW used to sell-out all the time.  WCW held a Clash of Champions, Monday Night Nitro, and even a PPV there.  The arena usually seats 10,000 for wrestling events. It was suggested to the company that runs the arena to try and get TNA to maybe have a PPV event.  The company just chuckled and said they were working on trying to get WWE to come back to the city.  Having these draw numbers coming out explains why certain arenas aren't even interested in TNA.

Seriously, that was my only reaction. 17,000 seat arena? They didn't even get 10% of that! HA!

That is quite pathetic when you think about it. TNA should only go for arenas that can fill atleast 3000 to 5000 seats, because rarely would they ever and probably have never gotten that much.

Quote Partial Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

-- Though the stars of TNA Wrestling are famous and appear on a national television show viewed by millions per week, it does not necessarily translate into huge pay checks for a good portion of the roster. This fact especially rings true with the company's Knockouts as multiple sources have indicated that majority of its female performers earn between $200 and $400 per appearance. It's been said that Daffney, SoCal Val and reigning Women's Knockout Champion Madison Rayne garner slightly more than $200 per appearance. However, they are not the lowest paid members on the roster as that dubious distinction reportedly belongs to Generation Me � Max and Jeremy � both of whom earn $200 per appearance.

$200 per appearance is pathetic no matter who it is and it makes you wonder why they bother to work there.
 
A show that is watched by a couple of million worldwide and they seriously under pay talent.
 
Dixie must be good at presuading people to get Generation Me for so cheap.

is that the same as the going indie pay? if it's more,all they can really complain about is it being per appearance.

$200 per appearance isnt that bad, sure its not like the WWE pay, but damn its not that bad pay and TNA wrestlers can still wrestle on the independants and chances are they could easily demand a higher pay cheque from the indy promotions they work for due to working for TNA.
