It's funny in a sad way Killer Queen, it seems lil Raidy has decided to coopt the latest IWC mantra(of course0 that ratings don't matter. Of course you and I and THINKING people know that they do matter and that SpikeTV execs aren't sitting around beating off to X-Division matches, they're looking at the numbers.
Here, for the "ratings don't matter!" crowd: There's a reason talks fell through between TNA and ESPN, there's a reason they can't jump to a better network and there's a reason SpikeTV was only willing to extend their contract by a few years and didn't rush out with a huge longterm deal. Hint: It's not because Spike is waiting them to bring back no talent spotmonkeys to flip around like idiots. It's the ratings. There's a reason they haven't landed even more ad contracts in the U.S.... It's the ratings.
Ratings matter, BIG TIME. Hopefully Dixie wakes up ASAP and tells Pritchard to go back to sucking off McMahon before Spike decides it's just not worth it to keep pouring money into a product that's going the way of ROBingo Hall under his (lack of) direction.
