Meltzer:
Very sorry to report that Live Audio Wrestling has been canceled and John Pollock and Jason Agnew were let go by The Fight Network. It's sad that the Impact acquisition has devastated Anthem's television network, first losing Robin Black and now Pollock, who is the total real deal as a reporter. I've been doing that show every weekend for 19 years and have enjoyed it greatly. John, Jason and Dan Lovranski have been great to work with and I wish the best to all of them.

Anthem should just rebrand the company to LOL.

Jimmy Jacobs made his debut tonight and also has creative input.

He apparently hasn’t signed a TNA contract and is said to be “non-committal.”

I wouldn't commit to the product they put out there tonight.

The best thing that can be said about it was that at least it didn't take like 58 hours or however long Wrestlemania is to be an utter disappointment. They got it done in a neat three hours.

It was pretty much a Triplemania tier trainwreck.

They're paying people to attend the TV tapings:

So they have to ask fans to set up the ring for free while they pay other fans to watch the show?

And somehow these people have a UK TV deal while ROH and NJPW don't?

I wouldn't worry about that deal. They are probably paying, not getting paid, for the UK deal.

Meltzer has referenced the UK TV deal being one of their only sources of income multiple times. It's not as big as the Indian deal they have by a long shot, but they're apparently making more there than they are from the ad revenue split on Pop by a long shot.

Accoring to web stats ( https://www.similarweb.com/website/rohw ... m#overview ) the UK accounted for almost 10% of traffic to rohwrestling.com. They have deals in Canada, Portugal, and India but not the country that is the second biggest driver of traffic to their website.

Thanks man. I sincerely appreciate the info. My response was more of a play on your post more than anything. I am shocked that they are getting paid what they are for the UK deal.

Bound for Glory had 650 people in attendance.

All of them were told that they could use their ticket stubs to get into the subsequent TV tapings for free.

And there were additional comps.

And they paid 50-75 people $50 each to come to the shows

And yet, they still only drew 350 each to the first two nights of TV tapings.

Over 700 people had free tickets or were being paid to go, and they still could only draw 350.
