What would happen if Punk went to TNA?

  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  1. The question is in the title. I know that there is a growing hatred towards Punk and him being selfish. But there are still thousands and probably millions of CM Punk fans still out there and if Punk joined TNA. TNA's ratings would go through the roof! I can imagine the internet exploding if CM Punk came out and attacked Magnus. Plus, maybe Punk could convince Dixie Carter to give him creative control. He would hold the title forever. Get mic time every week. Everyone would mark. And I'm ending it right there.

  2. I wonder. There's so much anti-TNA bias out there - especially among the IWC who apparently used to like Punk - that many of Punk's fans probably won't check out the product since they're the drooling morons who shit on the product every week even though they haven't watched it since 2007.

    It would be great to see if some of the people RVD referenced in airports who asked "Why aren't you wrestling anymore?" get to know of TNA through this, him on Twittah is great marketing in 2014. But I doubt CM Punk's presence on the show is going to give them more than 1 new viewer (or at least I hope Emperor Lelouch Britannia's love of Punk > his hate for TFA) and may even cost them some since TNA ratings are WAY up since they started pushing the TNA talent (and Dixie) Remember, this is the company that brought in the 2nd biggest star in the industry and the 3rd biggest star of all time (yeah, Rock and Austin > You, Hogan, deal with it) and it didn't amount to anything. TNA just works by its own separate rules.

  3. The answer to the question is that the world would explode.
  4. Depends on how he was used, but he would be huge in the short term at the very least.
  5. He'd be a good asset, that's for sure. Wouldn't be a fan of it personally, though. The guy just flat out annoys me.

  6. Absolutely nothing. Punk is a solid hand and entertaining performer when motivated. But he won't put more eyes on the product than any other big name they've brought in. If Hardy or Hogan can't draw in more eyes to your product in the long term, then I don't see Punk doing it either.
  7. If he had moved in Summer 2011 then he might have boosted viewership - at least for a few weeks - but now I doubt it'd have a big Impact.
  8. +1
  9. I hope he doesn't. Would rather they push Aries or Roode who are better than pushing him.
  10. If bringing in Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Christian, Mick Foley, Booker T., RVD, Kevin Nash, etc. didn't have any real long term effect on attracting more eyes to the product, then no way CM Punk will either. He'll drop a pipe bomb that I'm certain will be awesome (though he may be careful not to burn too many bridges since he may decide to return to WWE at a later date) but other than that, his impact on TNA will be minimum. And there's really no one in the company he could feud with that would make me want to tune in and watch. Punk/Bully Ray? Punk/Aries? Punk/Samoa Joe? I can pass on all these. Punk/Angle might get my interest but that's about it.
  11. Wouldn't mean a damn thing for TNA ultimately, as signing Angle in his prime was 100X bigger and didn't really do anything for TNA as far as a spike in popularity.

    plus Punk would never. he leaves WWE because its headed downhill product-wise, but wants to come to an even bigger on screen train wreck in TNA? of course not.
  12. TNA ratings are way up? so they get, what a 1.2 instead of a 1.0?

  15. If Punk went to TNA, if it was properly hyped and executed, it would be a splash for a couple of weeks.

    If they did something immediately entertaining with him, it might get them a ratings bump, but, sadly, I doubt it.

  16. They'd go out of business sooner rather later bc of the contract TNA & Spike/Network would give him.
