Default TNA uses Plants as Fans to Attract More Fans: More Below?

''The Wrestling Observer is reporting that TNA recently hired plants and used them at the last set of Impact tapings in Orlando. The plants were about a half dozen, well dressed young women who were positioned in the front row of The Impact Zone. It should be noted that using plants is nothing new, as WCW used to do this back in the day. The feeling is that hiring attractive people to sit in the audience helps give the TV product a better image as the tapings seem more important good looking, well dressed people are attending them.''































- At this past week's TNA iMPACT tapings, the company planted attractive young women posing as fans in the front row.































BQ: Is that Desparate or Ridicolous































Now I'm not Bashing but if your using plants as fans, that tells the story itself. Plants.































BQ2: Your thoughs on that















I also found out that WCW use to do this.















BQ3: WWE or TNA

That's just terrible, but I'm laughing about it. If they want ratings and want their Telivision image to look good, they might as well, put a bunch of wild college girls in the front row, just in bikinis, and that will bring the image up because it is a Entertainment Wrestling show. Why would they want attractive well dressed, it's not like the rating are going to sky rocket.































BQ:Both, it's just totally out of line. First they plant a sign in the audience that says, THIS=RATINGS and now you have an entire row of attractive woman that are well dressed, it's a wrestling show for god's sake.































BQ2:Just an awful idea, most of my thoughts are listed above. I think TNA gets worse and worse each week especially with Hulk Hogan/Eric Bishoff running the show. WCW did it because of Bishoff and you have to think this is all his idea.































BQ3:World Wrestling Entertainment

Nothing wrong with that, that isn't any different than WWE hiring hot divas that can't wrestle to attract more men to the program (example kelly kelly).

This is a very desperate maneuver by Total Nonstop Action and the powers that be.















World Championship Wrestling did this back in the 90's because they couldn't draw huge audiences like World Wrestling Entertainment and Vince McMahon busted them on it.Now,Dixie Carter is doing the same thing that Eric B did and for the same reason.Lack of imagination and draw power.































World Wrestling Entertainment.

'Plants' are the exactly the same as using television 'extras' in films.































We don't have a problem with that, so why should it be different for so called Pro Wrestling?

Everybody and every company has been using attractive women to sell their products since the inception of the concept advertising. Check TV and print ads. If you use whatever the product is that's being advertised beautiful women will suddenly appear, find you attractive, entertaining, charming, etc, and all the cool people will follow, and your life will be perfect.































Vince McMahon doesn't even try to disguise the fact that he uses beautiful women to sell his product. Name one unattractive Diva. Just one (Vickie Guerrero is not a diva). The Divas are not taken as serious performers or competitors BY ANYONE yet Vince has them all over RAW and Smackdown. Explain that.































Vince often uses beautiful women to help get a mid-carder over when he's pushing them. Dolph Ziggler and Zach Ryder are the two latest.































BQ: It's neither desperate nor ridiculous. Every company in the world does the same thing. I'm sure you've heard the expression sex sells. It's been proven time and time again; attractive people (especially women) hawking your product gets attention. Vince knows that more than anybody.































BQ2: Singling out one wrestling promotion for doing the same thing every company in the world does (including the largest wrestling promotion in the world) is a desperation attempt to bash and ridicule said wrestling promotion by close-minded fans who are afraid that said promotion might get a little attention.































That Dave Meltzer included this trivial and useless piece of information in his vaunted and generally highly-rated column shows that Meltzer is running out of things to say.































BQ3: Everybody knows I'm a TNA fan and the fact that I find TNA more unpredictable and generally more entertaining than the WWE. Doesn't mean I don't watch and enjoy the WWE, as well.
