Bully Ray Says He Likes TNA Cutting Back on PPVs
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.16.2013

- Bully Ray recently spoke with Busted Open radio about TNA cutting back their PPVs and more. Check out the highlights:

On Impact becoming better than TNA PPVs: "I think it's good for business as far as people being emotionally invested and really interested in what's going on. From a dollars and cents point of view, I can only hope it makes sense for TNA."

On TNA cutting its PPVs back: "I like to compare everything to sex. Even sex gets too much at times. A pay-per-view every single month, you kind of get burned out on it. What really is special and what is not special? Sometimes you may watch a PPV and say actually Thursday night's Impact was better than the PPV. So what did I spend my money on? I remember as a kid growing up, the WrestleManias, the Royal Rumbles, the Survivor Series, the Summerslams, the Starrcades. The special shows that you really, really built to. You built real emotional investment. Where you said to yourself, 'I absolutely, positively have to see this show.' With PPV nowadays, whether it's WWE, TNA, Ring of Honor. Is there anything that's must see anymore? Okay, I know I must see Bound For Glory, and I know I must see WrestleMania. What else?"

On his desire to have TNA visit more traditional wrestling cities more often: "There aren't a lot of topics that I won't answer you guys on. This one I'm going to step away from, for the very simple fact that my opinions might not mesh with their business opinions. I would love to see TNA get on board a little bit with the more traditional style of wrestling promotion, and getting word out to the fans a little more than just the TV show and the Internet. I do believe that a company who is still growing like TNA, you really do need to do the gorilla marketing, the grassroots marketing. I do believe that TNA should be appearing more and more in New York, in Philadelphia, in Boston, in Chicago, and Detroit. Hardcore wrestling fanatics, cities where people will really sink their teeth into your product, people will really jump on board. I'm not quite sure why they stay away from the Northeats as much as they do."
