Yes, I Said TNA Should Go Out of Business. So What?

A rich and famous wrestling promoter once said that “controversy creates cash.” The idea was simple – if you’re able to generate discussion about your product, even if it’s edgy (or, ‘controversial’) the extra eyes on your product alone will create more revenue.
