It seems to out do the WWE in the t.v ratings.

TNA in the UK, is very popular. Its just as popular as the WWE is in the USA.

Reason why TNA does so well ratings-wise it's because it's on a channel where it's easily available on Freeview and Sky where WWE is ONLY on Sky































Plus, ticket-wise for next year's tour, some slightly disappointing numbers since TNA is not going to Glasgow which has been a bummer of Scottish fans. Not one arena has come close to a sell out for next year's tour

Its on a basic freeview channel so it has better exposure than WWE which is on a premium sattelite channel. The quarter of a million (ish) viewers would be a higher percentage of people than the percentage of americans who watch raw each week. Although id argue WWE is the market leader in terms of brand awareness.

Well the real question is what is the biggest arena or stadium a TNA Impact event drew? I believe WWE sold out the O2 arena......can Impact sellout a Pub?

Ratings are different than they are in America in the UK. Also TNA is on a free channel that most people have and WWE is on an expensive monthly tv package so it's hard to judge really. WWE would be more popular than TNA anyway. But a lot of people do watch TNA.
