I have included a chart below which shows the negative viewership trend for TNA Impact over the past year. The ratings take a noticeable downward trend after the angle featuring Brook Hogan’s marriage to Bully Ray.
As a viewer with my own waning interest, I attribute this to the fact that (Bully Ray’s excellent work aside) the entire Aces & Eights angle makes no sense. Coupled with Hulk Hogan’s overexposure, it’s difficult to get emotionally invested. The rest of the card is fine, but nothing stands up and demands your attention. Thanks to Dave Scherer for gathering this information and posting it on www.pwinsider.com.
